Over the past few weeks, 12 students from the ninth grade of the Arab Institute have been engaged in forms of cultural exchange between Britain and Palestine.

We have been giving talks about life in Britain and asking them what they already know about our culture. The students have also been giving their own presentations about life in Palestine and we have all been learning about different cultures together.

Topics that have been discussed include: British and Palestinian traditions, landmarks, sport, food, religion and entertainment.

Below is fourteen-year-old Mohammad, who gave an insightful presentation about Palestinian marriages and the elements involved in the celebration. He talked about the importance of marriage customs, food and dancing (particularly Palestinian dabke).
