Oukba Ibnu Nafiaa

Teacher’s Letter:


                My name is LAYAT Abderazaq. I am 26 years old. I am a high school teacher of English at Oukba Ibnu Nafiaa High School. It is located in a small town in the South of Morocco. It is called "Assa". I have been graduated from the ENS and CRMEF in Rabat, which is the Capital of Morocco. Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) and Language Awareness are among my personal interests. I have been attending different webinars, workshops, and conferences all over Morocco. Actually, I am an active member of two different associations which are MATE (Moroccan Association of Teachers of English) and MoRCE-Net (Moroccan Resource Centers of English Network).


                This is my third time to participate in Learning Circles with The Global Teenagers Project. It's been an interesting experience with such motivated students. This year, I am participating with some of our best students in our high school. I have explained and told them about the previous experiences I had with Learning Circles. They showed a great interest and excitement to be among you this year in this Learning Circle Children’s Rights 2015. So, I hope they will learn a lot and get to know other students from different countries all over the world. I wish them and all the other students the best of luck.


Keep up the good work  ^^__^^

Sometimes we have an opportunity to ride a camel at the Toronto zoo, but it costs ten dollars to ride a camel for five minutes!

Dear Mr Layat and class,
Thank you for the introduction. I was just wondering, have most of your students ridden camels before?
Here it is very rare

Great work Mr Layat and students, would love to travel to Morocco and see your beautiful country with my own eyes>
Please remember to Not to upload full size camera pictures (2-5 Mb) and make your pictures smaller (50-100Kb).
Again we just love al the pictures, yet with the total web page size of 50Mb+, it means for some school with dial-up connections takes minutes to open on just 1 PC!
Thanks for you support!

Thank you for your introduction Mr. Layat and students.... amazing how much we can even learn from an introduction.
For me Morocco is linked to summer heat (I participated in the 2009 iEARN Conference in Ifrane)... but cold in winters..... cold as in freezing??
Greetings from Holland, Bob.
