Read the passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks.

The first question we might ask is: What can you learn in college that will help you in being an employee? The schools teach many things of value to the future accountant, doctor or electrician. Do they also teach anything of value to the future employee to know? Yes, they teach the one thing that it is perhaps most valuable for the future employee to know. But very few students bother to learn it. This basic is the skill ability to organize and express ideas in writing and in speaking. This means that your success as an employee will depend on your ability to communicate with people and to your own thoughts and ideas to them so they will both understand what you are driving at and be persuaded.

Of course, skill in expression is not enough itself. You must have something to say in the first place. The effectiveness of your job depends on your ability to make other people understand your work as they do on the quality of the work itself.

Expressing one’s thoughts is one skill that the school can teach. The foundations for skill in expression have to be laid early: an interest in and an ear language; experience in organizing ideas and data, in brushing aside the irrelevant, and above all the habit of verbal expression. If you do not lay these foundations your school years, you may never have an opportunity again.

Danger in the sea

When people think of dangerous sea animals, they often think of big animals like sharks. However, the sea wasp that lives in the tropical waters of Australia is even more dangerous. Since 1980 the sea wasp has killed about 80 people in Australia. These were mostly children. Sharks in Australia have not killed nearly as many people as sea wasps.

The sea wasp is a kind of jellyfish and is very difficult to see in the water. Its body can grow bigger than a person's head and its tentacles can be three meters long. These tentacles have a poison in them that helps the Jellyfish to kill its food. The poison hurts a lot, and it is so dangerous it can kill a person in five minutes. Even small sea wasps can kill a child.

Everyone comes out of the sea when there are sea wasps in the water. If people have to go to the water for some reason, they must wear clothes. Nowadays we know how to help a person who is hurt by a sea wasp, and not many people die anymore.
