Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Khalil: Phone conversations can be tricky in a new language. Generally, people in Morocco will try to speak in French or English if they can, when they notice someone doesn’t speak the local language. But it's always good to know some of the basic sentences just in case the person can't speak any other language.

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in another series! Bye!
Khalil: بسلامة (bslâma)
