How Can We Clean The World? is theme of the Young Learners 4 course book at the AmericanLanguageCenter, Mohammedia. Though many units begin and end in the classroom, teacher Ashley Cannell and her class did not simply close their books when they covered the unit. On Saturday, March 12 ,they "recycled" the unit at nearby Pont Blandin beach by conducting a beach clean up.

Accompanied by two other participating ALC classes (YL2 and T3 classes), teachers Ashley, Mohammed Boubou, Yassine Boussagui, and the school director joined students in picking up everything from shoes to diapers, cans and glass from the beach. They showed us that in just two hours their small hands can make a big difference and have the power to stop trash from reaching the ocean.
