Pilipinas, game knb o ikaw ang na-game?Ang saya-saya noh! (I am happy-happy! hehe...)So, how did everyone did on the test. In fairness, I saw some who came out of the room disappointed. Some are just blank or staring faces of "what happened".Well, I am not going to post the questions. There was someone who post the questions in one thread (I think two, it was duplicated) and that person listed everything right. Anyway, we'll see how the raters put their ears on the recorders and manage to understand between eating in a cafeteria and bringing food from home.I think I did fine. Before the test, I vocalized myself by reading some words posted around the area. The showtime was sweet. I exited the room happily. I was already doing extemporaneous public speaking with all my hands extended and my face was almost smiling and saying several expressions like (Who would want a stormy weather when we're suppose to hang out in the beach? Am I happy about this? Definitely not.) and yes, I was imagining that I was talking directly to the person. Though ridiculous I seemed, I didn't care. (CONfidence...) For me, good thing that they use IVR thing and the headphone-mic set. This was the same thing I used in the rehearsals through the computer.January TSE people, prepare yourselves, we we'll see each other in the test centers(hopefully not). I guess, pronunciation and confidence is important. Good luck and God bless to everyone.
Thanks all. Hopefully, I and all of the test takers would get the desired score they want.
No. I didn't know the questions before the test but only before I put my earphones, that was I was already inside the cubicle.
Before I plugged on the earphones, I asked the proctor who is doing the call first if I could rip off the booklet. She said I can. Then I immediately went to the story question, took 5-10 sec to analyze the story and write notes imemdiately. My plan was two words but I ended up writing sentences. (I write fast hehe...)
Then proceeded to questions 2 and 3 to do the same. After which, she gave me the earphone and asked if I heard the other line, I said yes and it's showtime. Since the speaker says about the "this is TSE or... (he reads a very long intro thing, do you want to hear all of it? )" I just read the last sentence as my cue to go back on the first page then went to questions 4-6 start making notes. The speaker spoke slow. so you could prepare.
Then, I talked like I am having my extemporaneous speaking (with all the hands and facial expressions and several teasers like "I think you will come to the party because yur girlfriend will attend there. You don't want her to be disappointed. do you?"
I would suggest that just continue talking. After all, the moment the phone is played/operated, any words came from your mouth will be recorded, so just talk.
Again, hope is that though comprehending and astounding the words, they should be understable to the human ear perception.
