Reading Test

        (§1) Hi 1ère Bac. Students! I am Reda, a thirty-two-year old doctor from Casablanca. I like my work a lot since it saves lives, and I am always glad to help sick people get healthy again.

        (§2) Yesterday was my day off, so my wife, Imane, the kids and I decided to go to Marrakech to relax. We visited a lot of monuments and we ate delicious dishes in "Jamae Lafna square". We also took gorgeous photos, but our son Anas wanted to have a photo with “Lamsayyah” to use as his facebook profile image.

        (§3) I published the photos on my facebook wall for the family and friends to see and enjoy. They got a lot of "likes" and several funny comments. My daughter Bahija shared the videos with her friends on Instagram. After I performed "Al Isha" prayer at "Alkoutoubiya" Mosque, we took the train back to Casa.

        (§4) Well, I believe there are other good places for holidays in our country. For instance there is Merzouga. Our friend, Ihsane, said it is wonderful, and she adores it a lot. I can't wait to go there, too.
