In this article, we will share how you can get a high score in the popular Pearson Test of English language, which is a technology and software driven exam to measure your English language proficiency.
The speaking section of the exam is most interesting. One of the question types which is found most difficult by test takers is Describe Image. Describe Image is the equivalent of seeing a visual image in day to day life and describing that in your own words in English. As per the describe image study guide on Sure Way English, the computer software behind the test compares your spoken response with the actual elements of the picture shown on the screen.
If you score well in this question type, you can expect a good overall score in the exam. The software judges you on a few criteria. These are:
If your spoken responses reference the key points as displayed in the picture, the software will give you a high score for that response. The visual information is correlated with the words that you are speaking.
If you speak in a manner that your speech matches the pattern of a fluent English speaker, you will have no problem getting a high score in the exam. The software uses a rudimentary algorithm to match the speech waveforms.
Pay special attention to how you pronounce the various words. Again, the waveform of the words is important as the software will match that against the sample set in its algorithmic question bank.
In a nutshell, the language technology is primarily a set of functions that matches the shapes and keywords from your response to sample responses at various score levels. As long as you do well on the matches, you will get a high score.
