IELTS reading module focuses on evaluating a candidate’s comprehension skills and ability to understand English. This is done by testing the reading proficiency through questions based on different structures and paragraphs (500-950 words each). There are 40 questions in total and hence it becomes extremely important to practice each and every question structure before actually sitting for the exam.

This reading passage mainly consists of following types of questions:

  • Match the following
  • Short-answer questions

We are going to read about a steam iron. You must read the passage carefully and try to answer all questions correctly. 


A. Filling the reservoir

Your iron is designed to function using tap water. However, it will last longer if you use distilled water.

  • Always unplug the iron before filling the reservoir.
  • Always empty the reservoir after use.

B. Temperature and steam control

Your Moulex iron has two buttons which control the intensity of heat produced by the iron. You can, therefore, adjust the temperature of the iron and the amount of steam being given off depending upon the type of fabric being ironed.

  • Turn the steam control to the desired intensity.
  • Turn the thermostat control to the desired temperature.

Important: If your iron produces droplets of water instead of giving off steam, your temperature control is set too low.

C. Spray button

This button activates a jet of cold water which allows you to iron out any unintentional creases. Press the button for one second.

D. Pressing button

This button activates a super shot of steam which momentarily gives you an additional 40g of steam when needed.

Important: Do not use this more than five successive times.

E. Suits etc.

It is possible to use this iron in a vertical position so that you can remove creases from clothes on coathangers or from curtains. Turning the thermostat control and the steam button to maximum, hold the iron in a vertical position close to the fabric but without touching it. Hold down the pressing button for a maximum of one second. The steam produced is not always visible but is still able to remove creases.

Important: Hold the iron at a sufficient distance from silk and wool to avoid all risk of scorching Do not attempt to remove creases from an item of clothing that is being worn, always use a coathanger.

F. Autoclean

In order that your iron does not become furred up, Moulex have integrated an autoclean system and we advise you to use it very regularly (12 times per month).

  • Turn the steam control to the off position.
  • Fill the reservoir and turn the thermostat control to maximum.

As soon as the indicator light goes out, unplug the iron and, holding it over the sink, turn the steam control to autoclean. Any calcium deposits will be washed out by the steam. Continue the procedure until the reservoir is empty.
