IELTS Reading Practice Test


What point is made in the first paragraph?
The aim of education is to teach people to read
Everybody has a different pattern of reactions.
Print only carries meaning to those who have received appropriate ways to respond.
The writers should make sure their works satisfy a variety of readers.


Simplify & Connection

 1 The end, product of education is the total pattern of reactions and possible reactions we have inside ourselves

 2 If you did not have within you the pattern of reactions that we call "the ability to read.” you would see here only meaningless black marks on paper.

 3 Because of the trained patterns of response, you are (or are not) stirred to patriotism by martial music , your feelings of reverence are aroused by symbols of your religion , you listen more respectfully to the health advice of someone who has “MD" after his name than to that of someone who hasn’t.

 4 “pattern of reactions” is the sum total of the ways we act in response to events, to words, and to symbols.
