Re-tell Lecture

Contact us for Online PTE Coaching


You will hear a lecture. After listening to the lecture, in 10 seconds, you'll have to speak into the microphone and retell what you have just heard from the lecture in your own words. You will have 40 seconds to give your response. 

Skills assessed

Listening and speaking

Number of questions

 3 - 4


  • The lecture will start automatically. Sometimes the lecture is accompanied by an image or video. Once the audio is over, you’ll have 10 seconds to prepare yourself. After 10 seconds, you'll hear a short tone. Start speaking immediately after the tone.
  • Don't speak before the microphone starts because your voice won’t be recorded. Speak clearly, and don’t make any hurry. You’ll be able to record your answer only once. 
  • Finish speaking before the progress bar reaches the end. The word “Recording” changes to “Completed”. 
  • You will be judged for listening, speaking, oral fluency, pronunciation and content.
  • Noting down the keywords or phrases will help you recalling the lecture.
