PTE阅卷官讲解Describe Image的要点技巧和注意事项

作为PTE考试最刻骨铭心的特色题型,Describe Image一直是困扰广大考生的难点。今天墨尔本文波PTE继续从阅卷官角度为大家详细讲解相关的解题技巧和注意事项。


  1. Identify the type of image. Is it a graph, picture, map, chart, or table? The approach for handling each image type is slightly different.



  1. Take notes if you need to. Use the Erasable Noteboard Booklet and pen provided. Do not write full sentences; briefly list any important features you see.



  1. For graphs, charts, and tables, be sure you understand what is being measured and in what units it is being reported.



  1. Try to determine what the main point of the image is. You should be able to answer the question, “What is the image mainly showing?”



  1. Maps and pictures will often have obvious features highlighted. Use words and phrases that describe the locations of features within the image, for example, on the left/right, next to, above, below, and so on. If objects are particular colours, these may help you identify them, for example, the countries marked in yellow. The same is true for sizes and shapes, for example, the large square, the smaller circle.



  1. Graphs, charts, and tables often show trends or changes. Use words and phrases that describe the trend or movement. For example, increase, decrease, rise, fall, remain stable/steady, and so on. Use phrases to describe the speed at which the changes happen, for example, a sudden increase, a slow decline.



  1. Pie charts show proportions. The size of the “slices” indicates the relative size of whatever is being measured or counted. The actual numerical values for the slices are usually provided. Be sure to mention these values. If the slices are equally sized, say so, using words and phrases such as equal, the same, about the same, similar, If the slices are different – the usual case – use comparatives and superlatives to describe them, for example, the smaller or the two export categories, the largest group of people, the most popular option, the least common answer, and so on.



  1. For all graphs, charts, and tables, look for a pair of extreme values – for example, the highest and lowest, the largest and smallest, the most expensive and cheapest – identify them by name and describe them using the values for their measures or counts.



  1. While you are speaking, if you lose your train of thought, of fine yourself at a loss for words, do not remain silent. The microphone turns off automatically if there is no sound for three seconds. If you need to pause to think or check you notes, use pause fillers such as um, uh, Let me see, and so on. Saying something – anything – is better than saying nothing because one the microphone turns off, you cannot turn it on again.
