The islands of Malta consist of low-lying coralline limestone plateaus surrounded by impermeable clay slopes. The highest point is about 239 m (about 785 ft) above sea level. The climate is dry and temperate, with a mean temperature of 19ยฐ C (66ยฐ F). Average annual rainfall is about 560 mm (about 22 in). Because Malta has no permanent rivers or lakes and precipitation is limited, the natural water supply has become a problem. The country has implemented a program to desalinate sea water; up to 70 percent of Malta's water comes from desalination plants.
The Maltese are predominantly Roman Catholic and speak a language similar in vocabulary to Arabic, although its alphabet and grammatical structure are derived from Latin. Both Maltese and English are official languages. Italian is widely spoken. Education is free and compulsory for children between the ages of 5 and 16. The University of Malta (1592) in Msida had approximately 5000 students in 1994.
