This paper 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 (Moroccan Arabic language and Spanish language) and on qualitative social research techniques. It is developed as a set of games by levels and it is being evaluated by some Moroccan students. The second goal of the project was to change attitudes in Spanish students: for this reason we are making a short film with Spanish and Moroccan students, and some other additional audiovisual material
