PTE: READ ALOUD PRACTICE WITH TIMER FOR REAL PTE EXAM PREPARATION | PTE SPEAKING SECTION (2018):

READ ALOUD STEP TO READ A SENTENCE:
• Read the sentence aloud and clap on the stressed words to indicate how English emphasizes some,
but not all words in a sentence. Draw test takers’ attention to the way that unstressed words are also
said a little more quickly than stressed words. To contrast the natural stress-timed version with a non
stressed-timed version, read the sentence again, but with the same stress on each word.

• Tell test takers that the stress within a sentence, phrase or chunk of words tends to fall on key words
such as nouns, adjectives or verbs, rather than on small words such as articles or prepositions. Explain
also, that new information in a sentence is usually stressed, whereas old or repeated information is
not.

• To prepare for the task, test takers should read the paragraph to themselves and, bearing in mind the
general rules about stressed and unstressed words they have learnt, try to predict which words will
be stressed when you read the paragraph aloud.
