    good day Sir. Patulong me sana sa essay writing. I tried to follow E2 tips for writing.

    It is as important for school children to study music, art and sport as it is for them to become
    literate and numerate. "How far do you agree with this statement? support you point of view with reasons or examples from your own experience.

    Pwede ko ba Sir e send essay sample ko? thanks

      Nope, MacMillan lang (4 sets of sample exams) and Test Module Software (3 sets) nang paulit-ulit para ma-practice sa exam format. Pag may di clear, nanood ako ng PTE-related videos sa Youtube.

      General: Try to expand your vocabulary. This will help immensely. It will help you understand the articles you read and the statements you listen to, as well as help you with written and oral discourse.

      Reading: Learn to speed read. Malaking tulong to para mabilis mo maintindihan yung articles. If you understand what you read, di mo na need balik-balikan yung article when answering the question items. Speed reading also helps to manage your time.

      Listening: Practice. If di enough yung MacMillan and Test Module Software, try to watch/listen to English news programs like BBC. Also, improve your note taking skills: jot down main points like technical terms, figures/numbers, etc. Good listening skills will help you with the repeat lecture speaking task.

      Writing: Make sure your spelling and grammar are correct and follow the word count limits. Sa summarize paragraphs, one sentence lang so stick to one sentence pero ensure that all the main points are accounted for. Regarding essays, make sure to introduce your main argument, provide at least two supporting points and examples, then a summary and conclusion. Importante din yung proper usage of commas and periods, when to combine phrases, and when to split sentences.

      Speaking: Unlimited yung time to test your headset and mic so test away until satisfied ka na clear yung pagka-record sayo. Naka 5+ minutes ata ako ng kaka-test lang.
      - Repeat sentence: Di need gayahin yung pitch ng voices, basta same yung phrasing mo. Also, important dito yung key words. I missed a few articles pero naka 90 pa din ako.
      - Describe image: Usually ang format ko is same sa essay writing. Introduction - what type of graph is it and what is it for. Body - at least two main points like highest sa trend, lowest sa trend. Conclusion - Summarize and conclude your main points. Make sure na di ka ma-cutoff ng timer so gauge how much time you have left.

      Practice makes perfect. Kaya yan!
