    Hi Khalid,
    May be, in opinion of other people you 'll get new information you did not get before. May be you'll get another point of view, which means another location to see the fact. May be the same fact does not have the same consequences in different contexts. Finally you consider the fact with more datas, and you get your own true. That makes you, at least, to understand why other people don't have the same understanding that yours. That is what You and I are doing right now.

    Hello Ayse,

    Nice to meet you,

    You are welcome on this thread. We will exchange our ideas and opinions about so many things such as our ways of learning English, our different cultures, etc.

    I also am a student. I am studying English. What are you studying?
    Yes I know Turkey, but not in deep. So please tell me more about it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Elmansour

    Hello Si Bachir,

    It is a great pleasure for me to meet you on this board. It is always a good opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions with experienced people like you. I also consider it an important event to be in contact with people with the same culture like mine even if separated by regimes borders.

    I am Elmansour from Casablanca, Morocco. I am a student of English. I spent an important part of my life in the East of Morocco not far from the borders with Algeria. I was in contact with many Algerian people living near the borders.

    Where are you from? I man which city are you living in? Do you have any ideas about Morocco and Moroccans apart from the speculations of the regimes?

    Let us share our knowledge through exchanging our ideas, views and opinions.

    Kind regards,

    Elmansour

    Hello Khalid,

    Nice to meet you here,

    I think you got the point of Mr Bachir. He actually meant to exchange ideas and not change them. We enrich each other through exchanging our different ideas and opinions.

    I am a student from Casablanca, Morocco.

    Would you mind telling us what's your occupation and where are you from?

    I think that we have a lot to share, haven’t we?

    Kind regards,

    Elmansour

    Hi Si Ali,
    The first of all, I get huge respect and love to marocan people. I always loved them. As I told you before, I visited Casablanca for about a week, I met there many people .... I felt there I were in my homehood ..... like when I was travelling inside Algeria. I don't feel that marocan people are foreigners .... I agree with you .... we can swap ideas, knowledge, experiences .... and built, gentily, a true friendship .
    I was born and grew up near the North Sahara borders. When I reached 13 years ago, I have moved to the capital city of Algiers to persue my learning. Still now I live at Algiers. I got a degree in economic sciences in 1971 .... and I did after that some trainings on some topics for profesional sakes. I worked in the management field about 18 years, then I taught relationships for about five years. Right now I work as co-manager at the smal compagy of building. I spend my spare time in computing, reading, outgoing through a country side etc
    What can say more? .... Chers Bachir

    Dear compatriot Bachir,

    How are you doing? I hope you are fine.

    I'm sorry I didn't answer you in time. I was absent from this board for a long time. It was due to my work. I'm teaching French in a private school. And all my time is spent in preparing lessons and in the classroom. I teach more than 30 hours a week. So no time is left for the internet.

    As you rightly said, Moroccans and Algerians feel comfortable in their relationship. It is normal. We are one people. We share history, culture, and everything is common among us. It's only political regimes that made a separation amid the same family in order to be able to govern.

    I unfortunately never visited Algeria, but I lived near the frontier for a long time and met Algerians. I had a good relationship with them. I love and respect Algerian people.

    We'll have in chaa Allah more time to discuss about these things. Plese keep in touch.

    All the best,

    Elmansour

    Hello Sebastian,

    I'm so sorry for being late to answer your message. It's long time I was absent from here.

    You said you wanted to talk to me. You are welcome. I'm all ears!

    I'm from casablanca, Morocco. Do you know where Morocco is? It's in the north west Africa.

    I know where Colubia is, but I don't know very much about its culture. What language do you speak? Is it an original language or the language of the coloniser? Where Colubia colonised after all?

    Morocco has known may partial invasions in the past, and it was invaded almost completely by Arabs who bought Islam with them in the 8th century. The recent colonisation in the 20th century was by France and Spain. It recovered its independence in 1956.

    The languages we speak are Tamazight, the language of the berbers, Arabic, Hassani, French and Spanish.

    When it's about culture, we can say it's a melting pot, it's a mosaïc of cultures.

    What could you tell me about Colubia?

    All the best.

    Elmansour

    Hello Sebastian,

    I'll rewrite the previous message after correcting the mistakes I made:

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like you to interact with me on this thread to exchange our knowledge.

    Let's start by sharing some odds and bits of our different cultures. For example: how do we greet each other when we meet?

    How do we greet each other in Morocco?
    Shaking hands is the common way of greeting each other, but when we are members of the family, we kiss on cheeks. Also when we are close friends, we kiss on cheeks man to man and woman to woman. Some even have the habit of kissing each other's hands. Sometimes we just say Salam, which means hello, especially when we frequently meet.

    How about you? How do you make your greetings?

    All the best,

    Elmansour
