Why choose Benchmark Education?
Our expert teachers can notice what you can’t. They are also quite experienced in identifying mistakes in our speech, even when we record it for practice. For test candidates, things as small as when to start speaking, whether to take a pause or not during speech or to speak slow or fast can affect score when passing through the computer assessment criteria. While it may be tempting to turn to generic free sample materials for preparation or some recorded videos of describe image or retell lecture and record your performance for evaluation, those would give you no way to pinpoint where you need help in your speaking sub-test– whether it’s clarity, fluency, choice of words, skills in grammatical accuracy, tone of voice or pace of speech.
Benchmark PTE teachers are expert at locating your most common speaking mistakes in read aloud, retell lecture, and describe image, and giving you the evaluation tools you most need to improve your role play performance during the course of interview. So no matter what’s holding you back from 65 or 79 score in speaking, our OET Speaking Evaluation course has got you covered!
