    It's just speaking. Volunteers are invited to speak to our students about their countries, their culture and their life experience. This interaction with our students usually takes place at the end of our evening classes from 7 pm to 9.30 pm, except on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday when we need help from midday to 1 pm and from 3 pm to 5 pm.Friday is off.
    So our guests have all the day and can take three days off from time to time in rotation with other guests to explore this wonderful country.

    "Working with the school was one of the most humbling experiences I have ever had as a Workaway Ambassador. They took us in like family. All of the meals they cooked for us, the group trips around the country, and of course the classes consistently filled with interested, engaged learners made my time in Morocco the best Workaway experience possible. Thank you to everyone for an amazing opportunity to help mold the minds of these students, I will certainly be returning soon!"
