摘要:其实PTE没有那么神秘,它只是一门实实在在的语言考试。

  随着PTE的不断普及,我们能够从越来越多的渠道接触到PTE资讯,各种五花八门的内容不断地刺激着我们的眼球。但刚接触PTE的考生,往往会被庞大驳杂的信息量搞得晕头转向……

  其实PTE没有那么神秘,它只是一门实实在在的语言考试。PTE和每一门语言考试一样,有自己的评分方式以及考察侧重点。正确地认识这些,合理地提高自身的语言能力,你会离成功更进一步。

  今天,就让我们回归原点,从PTE官方Test Developers的视角带着我们看PTE这门考试究竟是怎样一回事,Read Aloud具体要怎么才能拿到高分吧!

  Read Aloud

    In this part of the Speaking section you will see a short text on the screen. You will be given either 30, 35 or 40 seconds to read it before the computer starts recording you. You will have the same amount of time again for the recording. When the computer starts recording, you must read the text aloud. You will do 6-7 Read Aloud tasks.

    *编者注:Read Aloud的时间跟长度有关,分为30/35/40秒三种可能性;阅读的时间和实际录音的时间是一致的。

  Before You Speak

    1. Read the text before the microphone opens. These tasks aim to test your understanding of the text. If you understand the content of the text, you'll find it easier to use stress and intonation to help express meaning.

  *编者注:

  考官建议大家在准备的时候就大声读出来。俗话说:“一回生,二回熟”,有了一遍预演,实际录音的时候就会自信很多。同时,意思的理解对于Read Aloud而言非常重要。有时候搞明白了句子到底在说什么,才能真正明白该怎样去读它。

  2. Try to guess the pronunciation of any unknown words.

  第二点就是不认识的词汇要尽量的去猜它的发音。这点相信大家都比较清楚,在此就不多做解释了。

  While You Speak

    1. Imagine that you are speaking to an audience. Speak clearly, at normal speed and volume. If you speak too quietly or too quickly, it might be difficult to assess your speech.

  在读Read Aloud的时候,千万不能把这段文字当做“念经”一样读出来,这样会导致语音语调严重缺失,考官的建议是当做和人聊天对话的语气,会更加自然。

  另外考官也说的很清楚:Speak clearly, at normal speed and volume. 在没有读清楚的前提下,没有必要刻意读的飞快,或者大声吼叫,这些都是不实用的技巧。一般Native Speaker一分钟可以读120-150词左右,实际考试不需要高于这个速度。

    2. Use punctuation to help you identify places for brief, natural pauses. Keep your mind on meaning but pay attention to your stress and rhythm as well as pronunciation of sounds and smooth transitions between words.

  根据标点符号断句,这个没什么好说的,相信大家都懂。在关注读的内容的同时,也要注意朗读的韵律和节奏感,这就是很多同学欠缺的部分哦!

  3. If you make a mistake, don't go back and correct yourself. Just keep going. You will not be able re-record anything.

  不要自我纠正,这是PTE考试最基础的要求,就不多讲啦!

  Notes from the test developers

  · Do not pause for more than two seconds. After three seconds, the recording stops and you cannot re-open the microphone.

  PTE口语录音有著名的“三秒停止” 系统,一旦停顿超过2秒,非常容易导致整个录音被切断。

    · To get a good score, your response must include all the words in the text and you must say them with good pronunciation and fluency.

  很多同学疑惑的点就在于,感觉自己英语口语不差,但是PTE分数就是非常低。看看自己的Fluency和Pronunciation拿了几分?要拿高分,Good Pronunciation和Fluency是关键!

  · These tasks contribute to your reading, speaking, pronunciation and oral fluency scores.

  在此再次提示大家,Read Aloud对于阅读部分的分数影响很大。Read aloud做不好,很可能阅读部分也达不到自己的理想成绩哦!
