Retell Lecture

About this section:

In this section, you hear a lecture. You are asked to retell the lecture in your own words. You do three to four of these items, depending on the combination of items in your test.


This is the easiest part of the PTE speaking test. You ability to listen for the information and your ability to reproduce the story in your own language is tested. You need to understand that the true fluency of a person is revealed in this task. You should be very careful in handling this section of the speaking test.


Listen to people speak in HBO, National Geography, Animal Planet, or History channel on a daily basis. Try and repeat what they spoke in your own language. Make notes while you listen. Initially, if you have problem in understanding what they say, you can rely on the subheading scrolling on the screen.
