This presentation is a report on the project “Más allá del español (Beyond the Spanish Language)”. Its first goal was to create a free on-line resource useful for Moroccan students, non-Spanish fluent speakers. Even though they are the higher migration group in Secondary Schools in some areas of Spain, there are not didactic materials for them. Lack of motivation and difficulties in communication involve educational and social problems. The resource is based on contrastive linguistic studies (Dariya and Spanish language) and on qualitative social research techniques. It is developed as a set of games by levels and it was evaluated by some Moroccan students. The second goal of the project was to change attitudes in Spanish students: for this reason we made a short film with Spanish and Moroccan students, and some other additional audiovisual material.

    • To create an on-line resource; to change attitudes 14
    • • We decided to develop: 1. a linguistic contrastive study of Spanish and Moroccan Arabic Language 2. a social study based on qualitative research techniques• On the basis of both studies, we started to create a website where both the teacher and the student or his family find games, videogames and audiovisual materials.• This resource could allow them access to the aspects of the Spanish language and culture which differ most from their own language and culture. 15
    • • A large set of traditional games (100)http://www.gros.es/maes/congreso/ 16
