Kuwait is a country which is quite small but very rich. It has a population of a little more than a million, and it is situated at the north end of the Arabian Gulf, which is also sometimes called the Persian Gulf. The land area is about 8,000 square miles. Kuwait’s climate is one of the hottest in the world. In the summer, the temperature often reaches 124°Fahrenheit during the day. That’s about 51.1°on the Centigrade scale. Temperatures are naturally cooler during the winter. They range between 50°and 60°Fahrenheit.
Until oil was discovered there in 1938,Kuwait was a little-known country. Today this small desert country has become one of the world’s leading oil producers: it has approximately 15 percent of the world’s known petroleum reserves.
Since the discovery of oil, Kuwait’s rulers have turned the country into a prosperous welfare state. It has free primary and secondary education, free health care and social services; and the people do not have to pay any personal income tax for those services. It has become one of the world’s richest nations. Though Kuwait has free primary and secondary education for its people, many of them still do not know how to read and write. The University of Kuwait was opened in 1966, but many of the students still study in colleges and universities abroad, at the state expense.

Most worth-while careers require some kind of specialized training. Ideally, therefore, the choice of an occupation should be made even before the choice of a curriculum(课程) in high school. Actually, however, most persons make several job choices during their working lives, partly because of economic and industrial changes and partly to improve their positions. The “one perfect job” does not exist. Young people should therefore enter into a broad flexible training program that will fit them for a field of work rather than for a single job.
Unfortunately many young people, knowing little about the occupational world or themselves for that matter, choose their lifework on a hit-or-miss basis. Some drift from job to job. Others stick to work in which they are unhappy and for which they are not fitted.
One common mistake is choosing an occupation for its real or imagined prestige(声望). Too many high-school students--or their parents for them 如果觉得《1999年下半年英语（一）（全国）》公共课历年真题,zikao不错，可以推荐给好友哦。
