    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 classes to give the chance to our students to use the target language with the natives.
    Our guests can take three days off if they want to travel.

    "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!"
