Now that you have learnt about how pronunciation is an important part of performing well in the speaking section of PTE Academic, it’s time for you to practise.

This padlet contains the following practice questions:

  • 4 Read Aloud items
  • 5 Repeat Sentence items
  • 2 Describe Image items
  • 3 Retell Lecture items
  • 10 Answer Short Question items

Practise each of these questions by following the instructions on each of the Padlets.

To record your answers so that you can self assess and give yourself feedback, you can use Speakpipe, and transcribe your answers using Speech to text.
