Best Postcard Swap Ever!

Glorious Postcard Bounty

Glorious Postcard Bounty

I just received a bounty of postcards from my Moroccan host Anya, who had her Pre-Intermediate English students write postcards to me to practice modals of advice: should, must, etc. As it goes, several people were offered for the class to write to, but I was – and I quote – “by far the most popular.”

Is anyone surprised by that?

For anyone thinking of potentially taking a trip to Rabat, below is a highlight of some of the advice her students have for a new visitor to the Moroccan Capital.

Dear Michales

  • I write you this letter, because I miss you.
  • You have to be careful because of the scam artist that will probably try to steal your money. So bring all things that you’ll need.
  • You must not put on the hot clothes because we have a nice weather.
  • You must not take buses because there are a lot of thieves.
  • Then you must not wear summer clothes because it’s raining and cold.
  • If you want to come to visit me you must not bring [a] lot of luggage.”
  • Souvenirs will impress your family and friends.
  • Also you might want to bring your camera because mine was broken.
  • You mustn’t bring a lot of money, everything is cheap here.
  • You might want to bring a lot of money because some thing are expensive.
  • You must ride a donkey.
  • You don’t have to take a lot of money with you because the life isn’t expensive.
  • You must not hang out late at night if you don’t have a car.
  • Finally, you might want to bring some novels to read in the hotel because it’s so boring.

Well, there you have it. All the advice you need for a fantastic trip to Rabat. Reading up on this might also help:  The Moroccan Incident
