Scoring High in PTE with Quick and Simple Tips

 According to those who have successfully cracked the exam, understanding the exam pattern and the skills that the test aims to analyze is important. The PTE test is divided into four main sections, that is, reading, writing, speaking, and listening. These sections contain some simple and some complex questions, according to PTE experts, which the students can easily crack when they prepare for it well in advance. Opting for a good PTE Coaching Centres like Seek Academy before the commencement of exam is a good idea for all those who are determined to clear this toughest exam in the English language in their first go. The others are as mentioned below:

  1. Identifying the weak points and strong points during the PTE preparation is important and must not be undervalued. In Seek Academy, a leading PTE Institute in Delhi, the teachers emphasize on the fact that candidates should know the areas where they need to work harder and spend more time on rather than improving the strong areas further and further.
  1. The study material and mock tests should always be taken from the reliable and trusted sources. Many a time, candidates download lots of study material from the varied online sources which are not always relevant and correct. Therefore, the PTE practice tests and past year questions as provided by the Seek Academy should be trusted and utilized throughout the course of PTE preparation rather than wasting away all the crucial time in studying something irrelevant and useless material.
  1. There is a one thumb rule in PTE preparation that most of PTE Institutes abide by, that is, always set the target score higher by 10 points. The candidates should aim for a specific target in each section of the PTE Academic test slightly higher and prepare your mind accordingly. When we aim for higher, we achieve better. Similarly, if candidates aim for increased PTE score, they would definitely achieve the desired one.

This PTE is not an easy nut to crack because over 70% of candidates appeared in the exam is not able to crack it in their first three attempts, as suggested by various PTE Institutes in Delhi.

Most common mistakes in PTE Speaking Exam

Ask PTE teachers training the students at some of the best PTE coaching in Delhi about the factors that lead to the failure in the speaking section of the Pearson Test of English Academic and you will get to know that the lack of confidence among the candidates is the main reason. Well, this is true as even the candidates who have a good command in writing and have commendable knowledge of English language and vocabulary at times fail to get a good score in PTE speaking section.

Common Mistakes in PTE Speaking Exam

And, this further shakes their confidence and faith and becomes a reason for their underperformance in the next PTE exam. Going by the opinion of the experts at Seek Academy, a leading PTE Institute in Delhi who themselves took the PTE exam once and obtained a high score, a majority of students appearing in PTE exam make the common mistakes as discussed below:

  1. Making plosive sounds to improve foreign accent: It’s a common misconception settled in the minds of Indian students that making plosive sounds and stressing unnecessarily during the utterance sounds like a native-like accent. On the contrary, it sounds more like an exaggerated version of native English-speaking practice. Therefore, candidates should speak as neatly and clearly as they can. The PTE speaking test is meant to check your overall command in English and not how native-like you can talk in English.

  2. Consider brisk talking speed a sign of verbal fluency: Well, speaking too fast is considered by a majority of India a good marker of compelling verbal fluency in English. In fact, it is being taught to the students in some of the best PTE coaching in Delhi to slow down while speaking English. Speaking too fast in English only makes one’s speech incomprehensible for the listeners while it can also create confusion for the speaker himself as he is more likely to jumble up the words and mess the sentences in a hurry to speak as fast as possible.

  3. Using filling words such as like and umm repeatedly give one time to speak coherently: Okay, now this is the mistake that many of us make in our day to day life. When we think about some idea or making up the sentences in English in our minds, we utter words such as hmm, umm, like, or something like that over and over again. During the PTE speaking section, this heavy usage of filling words can create real troubles for the candidate and will eventually result in poor PTE score.

    In the opinion of PTE experts at Seek Academy, the PTE institute in Delhi, the candidates should be very conscious of their situation, surroundings, and their language when they speak English because it’s a language proficiency test and not any informal occasion.

In this article, we are going to learn certain easy tips and tricks to improve our English and avoid spelling mistakes:

  1. Learn commonly misspelled words 

Some words are really tough to learn that even native speakers sometimes get them wrong too.

For example:

And so on…

  1. Check word origins in the dictionary

Many words in English language have originated from other languages and understanding their roots can prove really helpful in leaning the new words and increasing your vocabulary treasure. 

For example:

Panic

The word panic is the name of Ancient Greek goat-god Pan, who spread terror among the nymphs.

  1. Learn Suffixes

Adding a suffix to a word often changes the spelling of the stem of the word.

Learning common prefixes and suffixes can also be helpful in order to understand and increasing the lexical resources.

For example:

Vowel suffix

-ance
-er
-ing
-able/-ible
-est
-ed
-ation

Consonant suffix
-ly
-less
-y
-ship
-ment
-ness
-ful
-s 

  1. Make your own notes of the words you have trouble spelling

 Make sure to jot down all the words that you think you misspell quite often.

 For example: 

  • You might use conscious while speaking but when it comes to writing, you might spell it wrong.
  1. Read and write 

Today everybody wants to focus on speaking English, after all this is the most important thing one needs for bright career. But, we always forget that writing English correctly is also equally important because when it comes to your job, your Boss might ask you to write an E-mail and what if you write all wrong, loaded of spelling mistakes?

  1. Do you love playing games?

Oh great! Even I love too

But mind it you are not supposed to play series of your favorite game, instead start playing word puzzles or crosswords to boost your vocabulary and learn correct spellings of different words.

So, readers, what are you waiting for? Get a Newspaper and look for the crossword.

Learning is a continuous process. We should keep on learning new words phrases and

Their correct spellings and usage. We should make use of all the resources available in our daily life to learn correct spellings.

IELTS Speaking test

What is the IELTS speaking test?

It is a test of how well you can communicate in spoken English. Do not make it more complicated than it needs to be. Always remember that they are simply judging you if you can open your mouth and communicate in English.

Seek Academy provides the best IELTS coaching in Delhi. Seek Academy is aspiring students and mentoring them to score the desired bands in each module of IELTS on regular basis. 

         f:id:amitkumar3210:20180514150442p:plain

The IELTS speaking test has three parts:

Part 1- it is about yourself. The examiner will ask you very familiar, everyday questions about your life. This is about 4-5 minutes.

Part 2- You will be given a cue card and you will have 1-2 minutes to prepare your answer and you will be then asked to speak up for about 2 minutes.

Part 3- this is more abstract. Here you have an opportunity to discuss the issues brought up by the examiner. This is your opportunity to develop your answers. This will last 4-5 minutes.

Purpose of the IELTS Speaking Test:

It is extremely important to know the purpose of the IELTS speaking test. It is not a test of how many words you have memorized or how many big or fancy words you know. This test is not to speak in an American or British accent. This test is entirely based on how well you can communicate in spoken English.

You need to speak naturally. Make sure you relax and speak fluently. Do not make it more complicated.

Organize your ideas and justify your opinions.

Try to develop your answers and speak more than the examiner. There is no harm in asking for a clarification, if necessary. Do not be afraid to ask the examiner questions if you do not understand.

You will be assessed on your ability to communicate.

Be spontaneous and talk as fluently as possible.

Give full answers. Do not restrict yourself to ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Try to extend your answers with explanation and examples.

Our institute is growing an educational industry. Which provides the IELTS/PTE/OET/Spoken English Classes in Delhi and is known for its unique and comprehensive IELTS program.

SEEK ACADEMY provides the best English coaching in Delhi provides the best and conclusive experience in learning English.

A Pattern of OET Test

Recently OET has been accepted in the countries like the UK, Ireland, and Ukraine and many people are contacting the best institute for OET Coaching in Delhi that is Seek Academy which provides the best training for the OET and IELTS to the candidates preparing for that.

How is this exam conducted?

The OET is a medical English test which is offered for 12 healthcare professions in some countries (e.g. Australia and New Zealand).This signifies that the people in few countries opt for any profession related to medical field.

However, in the UK and Ireland, only nurses and doctors can use OET as the proof of their competency of English language at the time of registering themselves as a healthcare professional in above-mentioned countries.

There are majorly 12 tests available for 12 professions in OET and the test should be thought as one test with different variations. Reading and listening tests are same for all the professions

                 f:id:amitkumar3210:20180416181137j:plain

Reading and listening test

Everyone is supposed to read the text of a general nature in the medical field. The same is true for the listening. The dialogues (Listening A) and short talks in (listening B) all relate to the medical professions.

What does this mean for all the professions?

  1.  The candidates must read about the current medical based books on current   affairs to enhance the reading speed and try to score the best results by   answering the correct questions.
  2. Any course which is relevant for other professions covers Reading and listening practice.

 Speaking

Speaking test is conducted profession specific, so doctors nurses all need to perform a role play attending patients or dealing with other situations which often come across these professions.

Since the role plays are quite profession specific, the communication strategies used are often similar.

For example:

  1. Asking information
  2. Providing suggestions
  3. Giving advice

Role plays generally follow the flow of conversation and ask for the reason of the conversation.

Writing subtest

 The writing subtest is the writing of a letter which is profession specific.

  • One needs to extract the information from the case notes.
  • One letter must be written on 180-200 words.
  • One must use appropriate language you are writing to.
  • One must use clear and concise language when writing the letter to convey the meaning precisely.

 Any course or practice materials which are authentic must be used to prepare for the training so that you could understand the format and perform up to the task requirement.
