The article at hand seeks to unveil the different patterns of communication between Moroccan and American students. The article is based on a conducted experiment in which a group of American students were put together to converse freely under the topic of social media. The same experiment was replicated with a group of Moroccan students. Each group used their native language (Moroccan Arabic for Moroccans and American English for Americans). The results are drawn from the observations made by the researcher during the experiment for each group discussion. The experiment was audio taped which allowed the researcher to make observations after the experiment.
