Read Aloud

Read Aloud Section 1, PTE Academic speaking, Tip no 1

In Read Aloud you are scored on
1. Pronounciation
2. Oral Fluency
3. Word stress
4. Intonation

Native speakers pause slightly between sense groups For example

In most countries // Eduction is not only a right // but an obligation// Parents of children// who are found outside of school// can be punished under the law. ( // represents each sense group i-e group of words which make sense independently )

2. Your pronounciation should be like native speakers

3. Stress the important words or key words in the sentence ,your voice should go loud as you speak them.
For example
Market research is a vital part of any business.

You should stress
Market research
vital part
business.

 

Read aloud , tip 2

Try to read in a natural pace , by natural I mean not very slow but fast enough like a news reporter.

Guess the pronounciation of difficult words by dividing them into chunk of small words for example 
Catastrophic


Cat
Astro

phic
