    @jaceejoef No, it is not allowed; but for others - they use some spare time in Read Aloud then they write partially the template. It is only when you started the exam you can write anything on your erasable pad. How about memorizing instead? Much better, more practice :)

    @jaceejoef Regarding yung hesitations, malamang yun nga yun. Bilang ko kung nagstutter o hesitate ako and nakaka apekto talaga sya sa score. Regarding yung pagsulat ng template: Yes @SAP_Melaka is right. You're not allowed to write on the pad until you start your exam. In any case, if you practice well enough, you won't need to write your template kasi you'll have it memorized na.

    @acearyeska Hmm. Di ko naman yun naexperience. Nag aantay kasi ako na magclose na yung mic and mawala na yung text bago ako magclick ng Next. May nabasa kasi ako na nagNext na sya kagad pagkatapos nyang magsalita (hindi inantay na mag-off yung mic) tas sobrang baba ng speaking score nya.

    @aJeff hello. I think wala nang time to take down notes for repeat sentence. Practice lang bro. may mga learning sessions sa youtube. I think ung memory ung kelangan mapractice. and advisable na you say exactly how the speaker said it including tone and pronounciation. The first time i did it nakakalito pero through practice, naging OK naman :)

    batman said:

    @aJeff yes you can take down notes. but i don't think you will have enough time to do that. Keep practicing. I was able to extend my memory in repeat sentence through practice with the help of youtube

    @aJeff yes pwede. Naging problema ko din yang naglalaho sa alaala ko yung kakarinig ko lang haha! Nagpractice ako writing down the first letters of each word. Medyo mahirap sa simula pero pag nakuha mo na - malaki natutulong nung technique na ito lalo na sa long sentences.

    @tonzap26 @batman @auitdreamer Salamat sa inputs. Practice pa ako ng madami.

    @miljen sa tinging ko kaya mababa yung Speaking kasi mababa yung enabling skills mo sa Oral Fluency at Pronunciation. Practice lang makukuha mo rin yan, try to focus sa read aloud kasi ganun ginawa ko 'read aloud more then napansin ko pag nagprapractis ako ng describe image tuloy tuloy yung pagsalita ko.
    Kung gusto mo ng prefessional advise, try mo e2language.
    Tuturuan ka at iga-guide ka to achieve your desired score lalo na sa speaking.
    goodluck!

    hi po, tagal na po ako nagbabasa dito sa forum and thankful po ako sa mga tips pero 2x na akong sawi sa speaking. Paassess nmn po ako ng scores ko kung bakit. Salamat po ng marami! ☺

    1st take PTE

    L78 R74 S48 W81

    Enabling skills:

    G90 OF49 P42 S85 V90 WD79

    2nd take PTE

    L79 R75 S59 W83

    Enabling skills:

    G84 OF64 P58 S86 V 70 WD79

    aun po, nakakalungkot!

    Sobrang baba ng Oral Fluency and Pronunciation mo. Tapos parang ok naman ibang scores mo. Dawit dawit lang din si Reading at Speaking kaya ang baba pareho. Mahirap actually makakakuha ng ganyan kababa. Ganyan din naging scores ko sa unang Mock Exam ko -- ang masuggest ko sa'yo is lakasan mo ang boses mo. Tingin ko di marecognize ng computer ang sinasabi mo sa hina. Basta huwag kang mahiya during the test at i-project at lakasan mo lang pananalita mo. Try mo sa isa pang mock exam and let me know what happens. :)

    @mugsy27 thanks po.,
    dapat po ba sa retell lecture and desc image intro, body and conclusion din? kasi parang may nabasa ako dito na di gaano importante ang content basta walang pauses kaya ang ginagawa ko intro then conclusion template tapos details na ng image or lecture :D ., and ngnenext din ako agad pag tapos na ako mgsalita kahit patapos na ung time para hnd marecord ung voice ng katabi ko, ganun din sa repeat sentence and sinubukan ko din na magpigil ng breathing habang nagsasalita para walang marecord na hangin kaya after ko magsalita ang paghinga, hahaha, nakaapekto kaya un? :)
    lulubus lubusin ko na din ang pagtanong, hihi, kasi 9am ung mga exam sked n kinuha ko, mas ok po ba ang 12nn or 3pm magexam? or madami pa din ngeexam pag ganung oras?
    huling tanong po, magkano po bayad sa e2language? may masuggest po kau na free, haha! :D
    aun po!
    salamat po ng marami sa makakasagot! :) :) :)

    @miljen Huwag naman siguro sigaw hehe! kasi puputok naman yun sa mic. :D Yung suggestion ko sa paglakas ng boses eh based lang tlga sa experience ko. Mahina kasi naturally boses ko at kahit alam kong okay yung pronunciation ko naging mababa pa rin yung unang speaking scores ko. Tumaas lang tlga nung nagproject ako ng boses ko.
    Re Template: Ok lang naman na di ka gumamit ng template pero merong template para 1. di ka maubusan ng sasabihin 2. matulungan kang magsalita ng tuloy tuloy 3. di mo na kelangang mag isip para mapuno yung 30-35 secs.
    Re Next: Di ako nag next kagad pagkatapos magsalita kasi meron akong narinig na kwento na bumaba yung score nya sa speaking dahil doon. Kaya inaantay ko tlaga na magcut na yung recording after 3 secs bago ako magNext.
    Regarding yung oras: tingin ko wala namang kaso pero baka mas maganda kung umaga tapos ikaw yung unang unang or isa sa mga unang dumating. Pinapagstart na kasi nila kung sino mang nandun kapag dumating na yung magregister sa mga test takers.
    $129 yung pinaka mura ni e2language. Di ko sila kinuha pero tingin ko sulit sila. Pwede mong itanong si @dorbsdee kasi nagsubscribe ata sya dun. Pwede nang mag free subscription ka lang sa kanila tas pakinggan mo mga webinars nila.

    @miljen $129 yung sa e2language all materials and practice test tapos may kasamang 45mins na one-on-one tutor maximum 3 topics. Accessible rin lahat ng webinars kaya kahit hindi ka nakaattend pwede mo ulitulitin yung sa youtube kasi hindi lahat ay nandoon yung ibang mga topics ay tinatangal nila.
    Kaya ako nagdecide na mag e2language kasi 2times na ako nag IELTS (9,400x2) plus remarking (4,500), so kung yung service ng e2language makakatulong saken isang take ng PTE time and money makakasave din ako. Mabait yung nagassess sa aking tsaka yung naging tutor ko.

    @michel_75 sorry for the late reply... isang session lang po yun, kapag nagbook ka ng sched kailangan mong ilagay yung gusto mong topics (3 topics maximum). Ang nilagay ko ay read aloud, reading fill in the blanks & re-order paragraph. Sandali lang kami sa read aloud siguro wala pang 10 minutes. the rest sa reading na, binagyan pa ako ng extra sa multiple choice select single tsaka multiple, all in all 45 mins. lang talaga. yung technique na tinuro saken is yung nasa webinar din pero elaborated lang sya... kailan nga pala test mo? goodluck bro.. ang kagandahan lang may recording na automatic na sasave sa local drive mo. pwede mo syang ulit-ulitin kung may mga di ka nagets..
