So after much thought and actions, you have finally decided that today is the day when you start the PTE academic preparation. You have high hopes that you are going to score a 90+ in the PTE academic. The problem is– since this is your first day; you don’t have any idea about where to start and what to start?
In today’s post, we are going to talk about the basic planning that will set the path for the next 30 days and what you should do on the first day of PTE Academic Preparation.
The very first thing that one needs to understand is that PTE Academic is an English Language test. So when we talk about a language test it is all about fluency, pronunciation, & your vocabulary build. The better the skills, the more are your chances of scoring. So the very first thing that you need to put in your schedule for the next thirty days is to read English titles and listen to English communicative phrases.
Some of the excellent sources are :
- BBC documentary,
- Your Daily English Videos
- English movies without subtitles
- English Songs
It is necessary, in fact, compulsory that for the next 30 days you read and listen for an hour on a daily basis. Try reading newspapers loud and clear. Watch movies without subtitles and try to understand what exactly is being said.
This process alone should occupy at least an hour on a daily basis until your exam day.
Vocabularies are necessary if you want to score well. It also doesn’t mean that it is necessary to use a complex word. These vocabularies will help in your fluency as you won’t be short of words when you do tasks like “Describe Image”. On a daily basis take at least 20- 30 days to practice your new words, remember you don’t need to mesmerize it, you need to practice it so that you can use it better.
The best way to do so is to pick words from the editorial section of your newspaper and try to use it throughout the day.
