Today we visited a public high school in Casablanca.
One of the teacher unions is on strike fighting for smaller class sizes and more school funding, so the students at this school did not have classes today. The teacher we visited still came to show us her class and her students were eager to stay for their class to show us how well they have learned English.

Some graffiti outside the school. We should take their advice.
Notice how they use some of the same word shortcuts as we do.

I can definitely agree with this!

Projects on energy conservation
Some of these pictures the students used look very familiar.....
Moroccan teachers must be explaining the importance of energy
conservation and the effects of green house gases too!
