In the villages, the Koranic school is held on the central public square on which night lights are lit. The children gather around a marabout in the evening and early in the morning to copy on their wooden shelf (lôh) the Koranic verses of the day that they all recite together to learn them by heart. If they make a mistake, they are beaten by the master. Every day, the lôh is washed to water and prepared for the next lesson. Children must memorize the 114 surahs of the Koran, after which their father offers some present to the master to celebrate the end of the learning of the child who may then be circumcised or excision.

There are also Sidewalk Koranic schools in which children follow their master for a few years, usually from 2 to 5 years.
