PTE Describe Image practice tasks form a very powerful part of the speaking module of PTE Academic. It measures your speaking abilities in addition to your skill to assume on your feet.
Describe Image process contributes only for your PTE speaking ranking (speaking, pronunciation and oral fluency).
You might get bar graphs, line graphs, pie charts, diagrams, photographs, or maps to describe. Once an image appears on the screen, you are allocated 25 seconds to study it. Then, after
25 seconds, the microphone opens for 40 seconds.
There are Seven different types of images that typically appear in the exam:
- Bar Graph
- Line Graph
- Pie Chart
- Process Diagram
- Venn Diagram
Take a look at the following PTE Describe Image Practice Template to score better in this task:

Sample Speaking: The graph shows the difference in wheat exports in three different areas.
The line graph of wheat experts shows a quite different pattern between 1985 and 1990. In 1985, Australia exported around 15 million tonnes of wheat and the following year the number seems to increase by one million tonnes to 16 million. After that, there was a gradual decline until 1989 and 1990, when they stabilized at about 11 million tonnes. Over the same period, the amount of Canadian exports varied greatly. It started at 19 million tonnes in 1985, reached a peak in 1988 of 24 million, dropped dramatically in 1989 to 14 million tonnes, and then climbed back to 19 million in 1990. Exports from Australia started declining over the five-year period, while the Canadian market fluctuated a lot, and the European Community showed an increase.
Sample Speaking:This graph is about the income distribution of China and the USA in 1970 and 2000. China is represented in pink and the USA is represented in green.

Sample Speaking: This table represents the information about sleep patterns for kids of ages 1 month, 12 months, and 3 years. A one-month-old baby sleeps almost an equal number of hours during the day and night. 12 months and 3-year-old baby get the majority of sleep during the night. In conclusion, the amount of total sleep required for a baby reduces as they get older, and the frequency of naps also reduces.
Sample Speaking: This image represents the process of production of a sleep hormone called Melatonin. When the human eye sees a candle light there is inhibition, and during darkness, there is stimulation of melatonin production. Melatonin is produced in the brain by the pineal gland, upon the stimulus from the eyes. The production and inhibition create the biological clock of the body. In conclusion, this shows how our body responds to light and darkness, and how the production of Melatonin depends on the light.
Sample Speaking: This image represents the manufacture and distribution of clay bricks.Firstly, the clay is dug out of the earth by a digger and sorted on a metal grid and roller. The clay is then mixed with sand and water and shaped in either a cutter or a mold, before being dried in a kiln. The kiln operates at different high temperatures, after which the bricks are cooled. Finally, the bricks are packaged and delivered to their destination. This brick-making and distribution process is a straightforward and effective way of manufacturing bricks for the building industry.

Furthermore, Charante Martimein is the only place in the middle part of the France which the annual sunshine hours are over 2250. In conclusion, the map provides detailed status of annual sunshine hours for France.
Sample Speaking: This diagram shows how a selection of 100 second-year university students traveled to university. 60 students said that they traveled by train, 30 stated that they traveled by car, and 10 students stated that they traveled by both car and train. One could conclude that most respondents traveled to the university by train, a minority traveled only by car, while a small number of the respondents, 10%, traveled by both train and car.
Sample Speaking: As you can see now that you have had a go at this section it’s not about how complicated you can make the description sound, but about being clear,precise, and accurate you come across to the listener. Go back and listen to your recording and ask yourself if you were clear, if you articulated your ideas effectively, and if you pronounced the keywords well. Below the question, there is a sample answer. It’s always a good idea to go through and listen to the sample answers to get an idea of what the ‘perfect’ answer sounds like. Listen to your answer and then listen to the sample answer and make notes on what was lacking or unnecessary in your answer to help you make the best self-assessment. All the information is there in front of you, you just need to make sense of it. Practice makes perfect and that’s what you are here to do. So don’t worry if you didn’t smash it the first time, you’ll soon get the hang of it.
Sample Speaking: The diagram shows the structure that is used to generate electricity from wave power. Two diagrams show how electricity is generated from the rise and fall of water caused by sea waves. The process involves a structure that is mounted on the side of a cliff or a sea wall. This structure consists of a large chamber. One end is open to the sea and the other leaders into a vertical column which is open to the atmosphere. The first diagram indicates that the moment when the wave approaches the device, water is forced into chamber, applying pressure within the column. The second one depicts the waves retreating. As a result, electricity continues to be generated. The turbine rotates only in one direction, regardless of the direction of air flow.
Sample Speaking: The picture shows us the structure of lower mantle. As we can see from the picture, the earth has the layers of lithosphere, mantle and core. Specifically, lithosphere consists of crust and uppermost solid mantle, and the mantle consists of lower mantle and asthenosphere. In addition, there are two layers of core which are solid core and liquid core. In conclusion, lower mantle is the middle layer of the earth.
Sample Speaking: Flowchart illustrates the production of colored plastic paper clips in a small factory. There are four main stages in the production of plastic paper clips from a small factory. Two of these stages involve actual preparation of the clips, while the other two consists of quality control before the clips are sent out from the factory to the retailers to be sold to the public. Molten plastic is poured into three different molds which depends on the color required. Once these clips emerge from the molds a quality control machine checks them for the street. Then clips are stored by hands into two groups, mixed and single colors. After that color mixtures are divided correctly into single colors and mixed color batches. Finally, the clips are packed and dispatched to markets.
Sample Speaking: The image shows the Enquiry Process and Terms of Reference for Australia in 2015. The process begins with the Terms of Reference and ends with the Government response. In the beginning, there is initial research and consultation followed by an Issues Paper and a call for submissions. Then there is a Review of Submissions. Later a Discussion paper is produced.
