西点军校英文介绍
West Point is a college for future army officers. It has more than four thousand students. The students are called cadets1. The school is located about 80 kilometers north of New York City.
  West Point is the oldest continuously occupied military post in the United States. General George Washington built a fort2 there during the Revolutionary War. The aim was to protect the Hudson River from the British soldiers. He moved his headquarters3 to West Point in 1779 in the middle of the war.
  In 1802, President Thomas Jefferson signed legislation4 to establish the military academy at West Point. The education centered on civil engineering. West Point graduates designed many roads, bridges, harbors5 and railways for the young nation.
  Not all the young men and women at West Point are American. This year, fifty eight are from other countries. Up to sixty cadets can be international students.
  International students are nominated6 by their governments. They must satisfy physical and educational requirements. They must also do well on the Test of English as a Foreign Language. After graduation, they return home to serve in their nation’s armed forces. Other services besides the Army also accept foreign students at their academies.
  Major Joe Sowers, a West Point public affairs officer, says information about the military academy is available through American embassies7.
