Hello guys my name is Sarah. Nice to meet you all. I am a french girl. About my origins i can tell you that i am a moroccan. I joined this forum in order to improve my english but also to tell you more about moroccan's culture, traditions...
First, about our food, moroccan's food is known all over the world. In fact, we have several specialities like couscous, tajine, pastilla of chicken or fish. We used a lot spices in our food, that makes its so popular all around the world. Personnaly i prefer pastilla of fish because we used various type of fish, vermicelli and various spices.
I used to travel one time per year in Morocco. Because the major part of my family live there.
So i used to talk with them in our language after learning it with my parents. However, some members of my family can talk with me in french there's not problem about that.
About mentalities of people. I can say that morroccan people are kind and generous towards others. Welcoming a guest is a honor. The sense of hospitality and services defines well moroccan's behaviour.
I am proud to be french and moroccan. 2 nationalities 2 cultures, 2 parts of me ☺
Thank u for your attention
Don't hesitate to talk with me if you have any questions ????
Stay safe ???? take care of you and your family !

Hi Sarah, welcome to the forum. :)

There's not much travel possible during the pandemic, but stick around because this place gets way more interesting in normal times.

Hi Sarah. Welcome to TravellersPoint. France is my favorite country and I love both French and Moroccan food. I must admit I've only had Moroccan food in France because we've never been to Morocco.

Since we can't travel right now, if you have any pictures at all, why don't you start a blog here on TravellersPoint and show us some of the places you have visited? If you don't have pictures, you could do the blog with information like you have in your post above, even post some of your favorite recipes for Moroccan foods.

Something to think about. Good to see you here and AndyF is right, it will be more fun when we can all start traveling again.

Hello, Sarah! Welcome to this great website! Hoping to read your profile and travel blogs soon :)
As an English teacher by profession (now retired), may I draw your attention to the way you write language and nationality names.
We always write: French, English, Moroccan (with capital letters). ;) even if we are in a hurry.
Best of luck to you!

On the other hand, young people often don't capitalize anything. It's just internet grammar. I'm a retired teacher too and I capitalize but I also realize many, if not most, young people don't. It's good to know the correct way to do it and if you are writing anything formal, you should use the conventions of the language you are using, but online it is not something to worry about.

I know it's hard for me to remember to not capitalize when writing in French. It feels odd because I'm used to it in my own language. I don't worry about it here assuming people will understand. It was very nice of Vic IV to share the information with you though in case you didn't already know. :)

Indeed, this exchange of opinions and advice is meant to help fellow travelers. Therefore, I simply thought to remind some young people about having to be polite while writing about languages and nationalities... No matter what habits young people may have, there are strict rules observing which will only be your advantage. This is where we, travelers, can help one another: getting more and more advantages and benefits in communication/travelling.
As you know, we, teachers, are terrible nerds...
Best of luck to you, fellow travelers!
Keep well
