    Share ko lang din, hindi effective ung tricks ni jimmySsem sa WFD.

    May trick pala siya? HAHAHA! Kasi ako mabilis ako magtype so nattype ko kaagad yung words at the same time as the audio is playing. Key po talaga is mabilis magtype dapat. Pero may ibang sinusulat yung words sa notepad.

    Ahh ganun ba. Mukhang di nga effective yung ganun. Nakita ko din yun before na sinusulat niya lahat pag di siya unsure, like "the" or "a", isusulat niya parehas.

    Baka po kasi kahit wala kayong nasabi, fluent pa din kayo? May mga nakikita kasi ako na kahit di nila complete yung content ng sentence, fluent pa din sila magsalita at dire-diretso, tapos naka-90 pa din. Kasi malaki daw hatak ng fluency sa Speaking

    @mariusinbrisbane wow congraatsss!! required padin ba mag faceshield? haha. and may mga templates po ba kayong ginamit?

    Thank you po! Hindi na po required ang face shield. For the templates, ginamit ko po yung kay JimmySsem for DI and RL, pero nag-add ako ng kakaunting words para full of thought at hindi puro keywords. Bale ganito po ginamit ko:

    "The given image is about interesting topics based on many different categories. Firstly we can see that the image can show a major point which is connected to our society, so it is fair to say that it is important. In addition, the given (graph/chart/picture) ** provides us with the information about **(title of graph/chart/picture) ** for **(kung may years, then years; kung may breakdown ng categories, then categories) measured in (yung measure ng graph, kung percent or number). Overall this image is very informative."

    Same din po with re-tell lecture, pero mostly keywords na ginagamit ko dun pero may added context pa din like "He discussed (keyword1). He also discussed things like (keyword2,3,4,5), as well as (keyword6,7,8,etc)"

    thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ sa RA mabilis po ba way ng pagbabasa niyo? kasi may napanuod po ako ang sabi magpause lamg saglit sa period tapos di na magstop pag comma lang.

    sa RS okay lang po bang di masabi lahat ng words as long as clear yung mga words na sinasabi and derederetso?

    Sa RA po, natural pace lang dapat po ang pagbabasa, hindi nagmamadali or sobrang bagal. Be mindful din po sa mga commas, na dapat may short pauses din. Napakinggan ko po sa mga PTE tutorial videos na mas malaki yung contribution ng fluency over pronunciation at content for Speaking, so as much as possible, wag mag-stutter at magsalita lang naturally.

    Sa RS po may 2-3 items ako na hindi ko talaga complete yung words haha! Pero nakeep ko pa din yung fluency kahit papaano. Meron isa akong item halos 3 words lang nasabi ko, yung beginning at end, pero nagsalita pa din ako fluently.

    @mariusinbrisbane last po pala ๐Ÿ˜ sa swt, essay and sst gumamit din po ba kayo templates?

    Sa essay po, nakalimutan ko na kaninong template (from Sonny English) ata, ang structure niya ganito:

    Introduction
    Your position/opinion in regards to the topic
    Additional information about your opinion
    Conclusion

    Bale sa intro part, ang ginawa ko po is inintroduce ko yung topic, tapos binigay ko yung opinion ko, then inend ko with "In this essay, I will further elaborate my opinion regarding this topic by giving supporting arguments."

    Sa SWT, since one sentence lang siya, make sure to make use of conjunctions such as "which, where, as well as, such as, however" para humaba lalo yung sentence. Also pag hindi ka pasok sa 50-70 words, ang sabi nila hindi daw accepted yung answer mo.

    Sa SST naman, kahit hindi nakasabi na 50-70 words, make it sure na pasok ka pa din sa range na yun. Ang weird nga hindi siya nakasabi sa instructions when you take the exam itself, pero sabi ng mga PTE tutors you can write 5-75 words, so ibig sabihin wag sumobra sa 75. Para di na malito, iparehas mo nalang sa SWT na 50-70 words ang limit. :smile:

    @mariusinbrisbane thank you for sharing these tips :) I really appreciate it!

    @mariusinbrisbane Congratulations! :)

    May templates ka bang ginamit sa Describe Image and Retell Lecture? Pa-share rin po ng tips at strategies na ginamit mo sa pag-practice ng Read Aloud and Repeat Sentence :)

    Salamat po! Yes po, kay JimmySsem na DI and RL na templates.

    Ang ma-share ko po is don't focus on these modules kasi nung nagka-change sa PTE nung November 16 onwards, bumaba yung items ng DI from 5-6, naging 3-4, at yung RL from 3-4, naging 1-2. Dun po sa exam ko, 3 na DI lang ang na-encounter ko and 1 lang na RL. Yung RA and RS po, hindi bumaba yung number of items.

    Yung DI and RL madali nalang kasi may templates pero dapat todo practice po kayo sa RA and RS kasi yun yung may pinakamalaking weights sa Speaking and other strands tapos hindi pa nag-reduce yung number of items.

    You can use languageacademy.com.au po for all skills practice. Diyan ko po talaga napractice yung RA and RS kasi makikita niyo din po yung fluency and pronunciation scores niyo. Also FYI po, according sa mga PTE tutors, mas malaki ang hatak ng fluency sa score compared sa pronunciation. Kaya dapat as much as possible, speak naturally and without any pauses.

    Hi guys, sa speaking kahit anong BS sabihin mo tama ka kasi hindi chinecheck ni PTE ang content. So for example, sa RS walang sense sinasabi mo, basta fluent ka magsalita always 90 ang speaking. I had heaps of students na give the same sentiment and they are all surprised na 90 sila, so my tip is focus on delivery and not accuracy of answers. Hope this helps!

    @mariusinbrisbane wow congraatsss!! required padin ba mag faceshield? haha. and may mga templates po ba kayong ginamit?

    Thank you po! Hindi na po required ang face shield. For the templates, ginamit ko po yung kay JimmySsem for DI and RL, pero nag-add ako ng kakaunting words para full of thought at hindi puro keywords. Bale ganito po ginamit ko:

    "The given image is about interesting topics based on many different categories. Firstly we can see that the image can show a major point which is connected to our society, so it is fair to say that it is important. In addition, the given (graph/chart/picture) ** provides us with the information about **(title of graph/chart/picture) ** for **(kung may years, then years; kung may breakdown ng categories, then categories) measured in (yung measure ng graph, kung percent or number). Overall this image is very informative."

    Same din po with re-tell lecture, pero mostly keywords na ginagamit ko dun pero may added context pa din like "He discussed (keyword1). He also discussed things like (keyword2,3,4,5), as well as (keyword6,7,8,etc)"

    thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ sa RA mabilis po ba way ng pagbabasa niyo? kasi may napanuod po ako ang sabi magpause lamg saglit sa period tapos di na magstop pag comma lang.

    sa RS okay lang po bang di masabi lahat ng words as long as clear yung mga words na sinasabi and derederetso?

    Sa RA, kaya nya nasabi ung parang comma lang. kasi parang natural english speaker ang dating :) basta mabasa mo cya ni away na confident ka na dirediretso good yan. ang dapat lahat ng words may emphasis. sa case ko parang bang nag papanggap ako na magaling magbasa kahit hindi. haha

    Hi guys, sa speaking kahit anong BS sabihin mo tama ka kasi hindi chinecheck ni PTE ang content. So for example, sa RS walang sense sinasabi mo, basta fluent ka magsalita always 90 ang speaking. I had heaps of students na give the same sentiment and they are all surprised na 90 sila, so my tip is focus on delivery and not accuracy of answers. Hope this helps!

    Yes po, kasi yung RS 3 yung things na chinecheck diyan: Content, Fluency, and Pronunciation. May isang PTE tutor sa Youtube nagexperiment siya ng isang mock test. Kahit incomplete yung words na sinasabi niya, basta fluent ka magsalita, mataas pa din score mo. Kasi nakita niya ang taas ng score ng Fluency niya vs. Pronunciation tapos 90 yung score niya.

    He/she did the similar experiment na mataas yung pronunciation naman vs. fluency, mas mababa yung score niya sa Speaking.

    Kaya as much as possible, speak fluently. Kahit hindi mo complete yung words, basta fluent lang magsalita.

    how long does it take for the official PTE mock exam to appear after purchasing it? It's already more then 4 hours but the only content of my assigned practice page is "You have no assigned tests in the Scored category" and the email of PTE to me is telling that the order has shipped. Have I done this right or i chose a different material? Thank you very much po in advance

    Hi po, sa mga nag-take recently ng PTE, anong facemask ginamit niyo? Ano rin po ang tamang way na i-position yung microphone since may suot na facemask?

    Ang recommended po ng proctor dun na nakausap ko is the basic surgical mask na color blue. For the mic placement, kahit yung pinaka-normal way of placement okay siya, not too far and not too near sa mask, because that's what I did (naka-90 po ako sa Speaking :smiley:)

    Hi everyone. I made this guide lang for PTE to help out all of you. I achieved Superior on my first take and sana kayo din for more points sa visa and para hindi aksaya sa pera!

    I collated every single reference, platform, and YouTuber I used as a guide and tool to help me practice for PTE. Also, I ranked every question types based on their level of importance aka score weight.

    If you have any comments or suggestions regarding my guide, please let me know para ma-guide ng mabuti yung iba!

    PS: This is purely from my review experience. Self-review lang po ito, no need to waste your money sa mga review centers, at least my opinion. Also, if kaya niyo, kahit wag na din kayo bumili nung mock test from Pearson kasi mahal din siya. Matinding aral lang talaga ang needed!

    Good luck po and sana maka-help! :smile:
