Today’s Question of the Day is from the PTE Read Aloud Question Type.

In Read Aloud, as you already know, you have to read the text in front of you loudly into the microphone. You will have 30~40 seconds to prepare your response and then another 30~40 seconds to record your response.

Make sure to test yourself with these free PTE Read Aloud practice questions in a real PTE exam like software.

Sure Way English students take several such practice tests and full length PTE mock tests as part of their PTE course.

Today’s Question is (Explanation below the video):

The text to read in the question is:

Akimbo, this must be one of the odder-looking words in the language and puzzles us in part because it doesn’t seem to have any relatives. What’s more, it is now virtually a fossil word, until recently almost invariably found in arms akimbo, a posture in which a person stands with hands on hips and elbows sharply bent outward, one that signals impatience, hostility or contempt.

The very first thing you have to do is to chunk the long sentence into smaller parts. You can easily divide the sentence on punctuation marks. If after that some large sentence fragments are left, just logically break them down into smaller pieces. Remember! Don’t break the sentence into too small pieces of say 3~4 words. If you do that you will lose marks on fluency. Also, make sure your pieces are of different lengths. If all your pieces have 4 words, you will sound robotic. You want to sound natural!

Akimbo, | this must be one of the odder-looking words in the language | and puzzles us in part because it doesn’t seem to have any relatives. | What’s more, | it is now virtually a fossil word, | until recently almost invariably found in arms akimbo, | a posture in which a person stands with hands on hips and elbows sharply bent outward, | one that signals impatience,| hostility or contempt.

In the next step, identify some words to emphasise on.

Akimbo, | this must be one of the odder-looking words in the language | and puzzles us in part because it doesn’t seem to have any relatives. | What’s more, | it is now virtually a fossil word, | until recently almost invariably found in arms akimbo, | a posture in which a person stands with hands on hips and elbows sharply bent outward, | one that signals impatience,| hostility or contempt.

Now you are ready to record your response. Just make sure you raise and lower your voice at appropriate voices. Try not to read too slow or too fast.
