    In that thread we speak English only.
    Here we discuss how to improve your Writing part of PTE.

    That's the most easiest of all. Just make sure, that you don't make silly mistakes in spelling or grammar.
    • Tips are general for all English exams
    • Use correct punctuation for writing tasks. Use full stops, capital letters, commas, etc.
    • Essay and summarize text is only 50% of the mark, other 50% are from reading and listening

    Summarize written text:
    • Summarize written text: Make sure your answer is one sentence of 5-75 words. If you write more or less than the word limit or more than one sentence, this will affect your score.
    Essay:
    • 200-300 words, not more! If the word contains mistake, it is not counted.
    • 4 paragraphs. The meaning is not so important, but the vocabulary, linking words, etc is.

    Let's go and see in-depth how to fulfil one of the writing tasks which is "Summarize the written text" by using a proven method.

    Conditions of the task are:
    a) Summarize the text within 1 sentence.
    b) Make sure that the word's range in a sentence is between 5-75.
    c) Taken into account that writing a sentence with more than 75 words will negatively affect your score.

    Method:
    1. Read (2 minutes)
    2. Write (7 minutes)
    3. Edit (1 minute)

    Step 1 (Read the text for a 1 minute)
    a) Read attentively and absorb the information.

    Step 2 (Read the text AGAIN for a 1 minute)
    a) Write down keywords
    b) Ignore details

    Keywords can include:
    a) Nouns (THINGS)
    b) Verbs (DO WORDS)
    c) Adjectives (DESCRIPTIONS)

    10 keywords are enough. Try to write mostly nouns but it would be also good to write some adjectives.

    Step 3 (Turn keywords into a sentence)

    After all 3 steps were done ASK yourself:
    1. Who did that?
    2. What happened?

    By asking the above-mentioned questions, you can create a sentence in your mind.

    Possible sentence structures:
    1. Who did what?
    2. Who did what, which did what?
    3. Who did what that did what?
    4. Who did what when who did what?
    5. Who did what and did what?

    DO NOT:
    a) Don't include your own ideas.
    b) Don't steal whole phrases (borrowing words is okay)
    c) Don't refer to the passage, such as: "the text says"
    d) Don't use grammar you aren't comfortable with
    e) Don't use the vocabulary you aren't comfortable with
    f) Don't include too many details!

    Advice:
    a) Try to write roughly 30-35 words (There is no necessity to write all 75, it will not give you an additional score).

    Punctuation:
    a) Make sure you start with a CAPITAL LETTER.
    b) End sentence with a full stop.

    Be sure:
    a) Your articles are correct.
    b) You have the right singular or plural versions of words.
    c) The verbs matches the subject.

    Let's go and see in-depth how to fulfil one of the writing tasks which is "Write essay" by using a proven method.

    In a nutshell, do the following:
    a) See the question prompt.
    Usually, the first sentence is the general statement. It sets the background of the debate.
    b) After reading it STOP and THINK.

    Essay structure:
    1. Introduction.
    2. Paragraph 1.
    3. Paragraph 2.
    4. Conclusion.

    Essay structure sentence by sentence:

    1. Introduction

    Sentence 1: Rewrite "General Statement".
    Just paraphrase it. Don't add any new information.

    Sentence 2: Briefly mention Side 1 and Side 2.
    Rewrite in your own words opinion of the sides.

    Sentence 3: Give your OVERALL opinion.
    Choose a side. You can begin the sentence with the phrase "This essay will discuss why..."

    2. Paragraph 1

    Sentence 1: Restate "Side 1"
    Paraphrase the statement of the Side 1 and add a few details.

    Sentence 2: Give reason/s
    Give REASON why.

    Sentence 3: Give example/s
    Give EXAMPLE. You can start your sentence with "For example,..." or "For instance,...".

    Sentence 4: Conclude Side 1.
    You can start your sentence with the phrases "As a result (of),..." if your conclusion is positive or "As a consequence (of),..." if your conclusion is negative.

    3. Paragraph 2

    Do the same structure as in Paragraph 1 but with the Side 2.

    4. Conclusion

    Sentence 1: Rewrite "General Statement" by capturing the same meaning.

    Sentence 2: Give your OVERALL opinion.
    You can start the sentence with the phrase "In my opinion,...".
    Continue to support the same side which you chose at the beginning.

    Advice:
    At the end check your essay for a 1 minute.

    Tips:
    a) Length must be between 200-300 words. Please take into account that 300 words exactly will not give you additional points. You can stop even at 201 and it will be assessed positively but not less than 200 or more 300. If you wrote more than 300 you will be assessed negatively.
    b) Show good development and logical structure.
    c) Show consistent grammatical control of complex language. Errors must be rare and difficult to spot.
    d) Have a good command of vocabulary.
    e) You should have correct spelling.

    Good luck :blush:

    Is it necessary to acquire Touch Typing? I mean, I realize that it should be helpful, but.. Is it worth the time wasting on it?

    Yes it is. And it won't take so much time to learn that.
