Culture is referred to as ways of living and behaviours which people all over the world should preserve and respect. Having an awareness of different cultures enables people to tolerate odd behaviours that seem uncommon to them. Another point is the one concerning values. Parents and educators should implement good values such as truthfulness, loyalty, hardwork, punctuality, creativity... so that the future generations would be able to hold the burden. To summarise, foreign languages are worth learning in order to avoid cultural shock and to have the ability to deal with cultural issues in an appropriate way.
Psychologists think that young people start smoking because they think it’s cool. They do it so purely because they find it enjoyable. They also think they have the right to do so. Another reason is that older people who are supposed
to set an example to them smoke too. Once they start, they keep wanting it and so they can’t stop it. Some youngsters do that because they want to fit within a particular group, to be accepted or to feel more adult. That’s to say, many of them want to exercise some sense of independence or rebellion. Most of these young people claim that smoking helps them cope with stress. But in fact, nicotine is a stimulant and won’t help to attain relaxation. A withdrawal from it, however, makes them feel miserable and lose concentration. Other reasons : *Smokers may use smoking as a support when things go wrong. *They may enjoy it with others as a group activity. *They may also use it to start a conversation with new people so as to look more confident and be in control. *They think that a cigarette keeps them company when they feel bored or lonely. Knowing why you smoke is one of the first steps towards giving up: Giving up is the best thing smokers can do to improve their health. Most of them say that they would like to give up if they could. The solution isn’t a simple thing to do. It may take several attempts to quit for good. There are no magic solutions for quitting smoking, “When there is a will, there’s a way”.
Women have for so long been likened to slaves, created just to serve and execute men’s orders. In some cultures, they were considered as a part of the furniture of the house. The situation is not as acute as it used to be. However, girls in some parts of the world are still unable to go to school because life in the countryside needs help even from children. Thus, illiteracy is so prevailing in rural areas. It undoubtedly affects development and prosperity. As a result, the government has launched many campaigns aiming at fighting this problem which is an obstracle in the integration of women in the development of the Moroccan society. Women in all parts of the world have struggled so as to get a place in the sun. The fruit of this hard work has been the family code. Many claim that it’s a triumph for Moroccan women.
Others, however, believe that it has complicated things and has widened the gap between men and women.. The point is that women need moe rights to be able to efficiently contribute to the welfare of the society. For this reason, we witness today their emergence in political parties and organisations to raise up their voices against gender discrimination within the same society.
WHY DO CHILDREN LEAVE SCHOOL ?
One of the biggest issues that some families encounter is their children's dropping out of school. This is due to many reasons. First, most children who live in rural areas can't attend school regularly because it is situated far away from where they live. Their parents also need them to help with the housework. Another reason is that poor families can't afford to provide their children with all what they need for school, as books and school things are getting expensive. The problem is also due to family problems and divorce. Children can't study when parents often have rows. In cities, small children leave school early to go out to work and support their deprived families. As a
result, these poor kids get lost in the world of adults. Some become addicted to smoking and drugs. Others turn to crime. Generally speaking, they are victims of circumstances and are, thus, often emprisoned.
Morocco is very rich culturally. It has many dialects and traditions which differ from one region to another.

They welcome their guests and try their best to make their stay as enjoyable as possible. ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
Advanced technology has transformed our lives completely both physically and morally. Every day people are assaulted by new gadgets on markets. As a result, life is becoming more and more comfortable but complicated as well. Unemployment is spreading because machines are taking man’s place. Armed conflicts break out here and there due to free arm trade. More and more refugees abandon their home land in search of peaceful shelther. Technology is something good as long as it serves humanity. However, when it makes a mistake, the price to pay is very high : human lives!
Every country has got its own culture and customs which of course differ from other nations. Therefore, Morocco is no exception. As far as celebrations are concerned, weddings are prepared differently in our country. There are many steps to be done before, during and after the wedding ceremony. Firstly, meetings are organised by both families to agree on many things in particular the dowry and also to fix the date of the feast. Then, the groom’s family take food ( sheep, oil, sugar, vegetables, fruit etc…in vans usually accompanied by a mucical group) to the bride’s house who are of course expecting the visit. Next, on the day of the wedding party, many people are invited. A lot of food is served to the guests mainly two main dishes : chicken and meat. Cake and tea are served to the visitors before and after. A musical orchestra plays popular songs and many people dance. The bride changes costumes and walks in front of her future husband. At dawn, many cars in cavalcade leave for the hotel where the new couple is supposed to spend the night.
