Talking about one's culture



Hi everybody!

This is a gateway to know about others'cultures : one reads about another's culture then speaks about theirs. For Example:

I am Anass from Morocco. Morocco is situated in North Africa.It has borders with Algeria(East)Mautitania (South) The Atlantic OceanWEST) Th Mediterranean(North). It is far from Europe about 15 kilometres(Spain). The official language is Arabic, but Amazigh is also spoken by a wide range of people. Islam is the religion of the Moroccans but there is also a small minority of Jews. Some of the traditional dishes are: Couscous, Tajin, Pastilla… As for clothes, we have Jellaba, kaftan,Sharbil… Moroccans are renowned for their hospitality and respect for the others. Some of its international cities are: Fes, Marrakesh,Agadir, Rabat… (By THE WAY, MOROCCO IS A TOURISTIC COUNTRY ). This is by no means a thorough description of  Morocco but just a means to practise the language.

What about your country?

Hi everyone!

It seems to me that the majority of people are not interested to talk about their culture. The question is : is it a problem of language or something else?


Let me know if you like.
