About


This question type is the 4th one in the Speaking Section. Test takers will hear a lecture of about 1 minute beforethey have 10 seconds for organizing what they have noted down from the lecture and they have 40 seconds for retelling what the lecturer has mainly talked about. Their response will be recorded only once. This question type ususally consists of 3 or 4 questions.


Tips


Many presume the difficulites in RL are of the content, which can not be overcome at all without comprehension of the lecture. However, the fact is that with a mediocre listening comprehension and thus an insufficient understanding of the lecture it is still very likely for test takers to achieve a relatively high grade.

That is because the key point in answering RL is of fluency, namely, the way test takers organize what their have noted down from the lecture, manage their moods, and their pronunciations stream into the microphones. Comparatively, the grading of content is not so rigorous as those of fluency and pronunciation are.


Time Span

The maximum time length for response recording is 40 seconds, and 30 to 35 seconds is usually enough for test takers. Note do not use up the whole 40 seconds, which means responses are very likely to fail to end in time before 40 seconds has elapsed, and thus a gratuitous loss of fluency grade.


Practice Goal

WHV: Speak fluently.


50 points: Do not be obsessed with content in a response, for hitting just 3 or 4 points in a response will be enough. In the case of insufficient understanding of the lecture and failing to note down complete sentences, a note-taking containing just 7 or 8 words will also help, which can be filled into the Less Words Template of RL. The point is still about pronunciation, tone and fluency: test takers try to speak in a smooth, consistent and mild fashion with a moderate pace and without monotonous or over-stressed tones.Note formula sentences should be used to make time to organize responses in the mind. Meanwhile, formula sentenses should be well paced and well pronounced with reasonable tones.
