Read the passage and choose the suitable word to fill in the blanks.

Choosing your first job

In general, we will all spend about two-thirds of our life at work. This means that we will probably have many different jobs over the years. However, our first of work is a very important one. If our first job is pleasant, we won't be worried about working. But if we have a job that makes us anxious or miserable, we may think that work is something to dislike forever. For this reason, people should think carefully before they apply their first job.

For example, if you are the type of person that enjoys working outside and being very , it would be silly to choose an occupation such as a receptionist. And let's face it, many people who start their first job are still teenagers with energy. It's also important to have a job where you like your employer. There is nothing than having a boss that you don't like. But of course, you need to work hard and show that you are reliable in order for them to trust you and know that you will do your job well.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the following questions.

Table manners differ around the world. If you visit your friends’ home for a meal, it’s good to know about the customs they follow. 

If you are invited to a Moroccan's home, bring a gift of sweet pastries, nuts, figs, dates, or flowers to the hostess. In many traditional homes, people often sit on the floor to eat a meal. Often, everyone shares food from the same 10 plates. The plate is put in the center of the table. Usually, everyone also drinks water from the same glass. Only eat the food in front of you. Don’t reach across someone for food. It is common to use your fingers and small pieces of bread to eat food. Use only your right hand to eat. Don’t say “no” to food. If the host of the meal offers you food or drink, take some and try a little. In many Moroccan homes, it is common to take off your shoes. 

Tanzania is known for its fresh fish and spices. Don’t act scared if your meal comes with its head still on the plate. It is polite to try a bite of everything. In many Tanzanian homes, people sit at a table on small stools to eat. It is OK to eat with your right hand, using bread or chapati to pick up food. Everyone may take food from the same plate, but it is not usual for people to share drinks. You may compliment the cook on a delicious meal, but don’t exaggerate. In some parts of Tanzania, men and women will sit at different tables. Also remember: It is common to take off your shoes in the home, but it is rude to show the bottom of your foot.
