Sunset at the mosque. Morocco Summer Program.

Learning by doing

Salam u3alaykum from the I-team in Morocco and all our students who are having a good time learning and experiencing the real Moroccan life and diving in its culture.This Yak is being posting from Imouzzeer where we are having the home stay for 5 days. Students had language lesson about vegetables and fruits. They had chance to explore the Souk market and tried to buy  different vegetables and fruits using the language they have learned at the classroom.Students had meet with the beneficiaries from the women center and talked about the different activities they do beside the history of the center,they also exposed to the English/Darija  class with the  Peace Corps Volunteer in Imouzzeer. Later on our students had  Darija learning activity  before heading  to the amazing water source where people of the city usually spend their time off; As a goup we had Tea ceremony  with some ” Msmmen” in a very Moroccan sitting,that allows us to give a presentation about the significant meaning of Tea in Morocco,how it is presented and how it is interpreted as a very welcoming part in Moroccan context.The ceremony led us to the hike in the mountain where we had a sunset reflection for the whole group;students expresses their thoughts about what they have learned and what they are learning.Sending you all our warm salutations and wait us for the up coming yaks!!
