Students from French Guiana who dream of discovering Louisiana


my name is Rémi Guyot. I teach English in Saint Laurent du Maroni in French Guiana. I have a class of junior high school students whose dream is to live the American way for a few days and I would like to take them to New Orleans in February 2018. I think this is the perfect destination for my students as they wish to experience life in a big American city but also because of Louisiana’s multicultural heritage.

I am looking for any tips that could help me to organize this trip but what I really need is to find a partnership and to start working on a project that could benefit students from both countries.

I shall, of course, be delighted to give any additional explanations that you may require.

Yours sincerely, M Guyot.

Hi Rémi! Are you still thinking about planning this trip? I would love to help you organize it.

Hello! I am very sorry I haven't answered earlier: I have been in many different places for the past few weeks and it was difficult to go on the internet. I was very excited to get your message and I would like very much to organize a trip to New Orléans but I don't know if it will be possible to do it this year: things take a lot of time in France (to get some Financial aid etc)  but I will tell my headmsater about your answer and see if we can fasten things up. 

Thank you so much for your answer. See you soon!

Hi Rémi,

I think it would be so cool to host a group of students from la Guyane, whenever you are able to come! Plane tickets are so expensive, so I understand if you need some time to raise money. Let's keep in touch. My email is

Looking for a one year partnership lycée exchange

Hi! I am a French teacher in the USA and normally take my students to France in the spring to stay with host families. We have had a partnership with a lycée, and they cannot host us this year, so I am looking for a school that is willing to have an exchange for this school year only. Anywhere is France is fine. As for us, we are in an urban high school in North Carolina, about 1 hour from Charlotte. We have between 12-15 students who are involved in this exchange.

Looking for partnership with an American middle school for exchange trips

Hello everyone,
I teach English in a french Middle School of Guadeloupe ( a friendly and lovely Caribbean Island - French West Indies).

I assist our P.E. teacher on his Basket Ball class project.

Last year, he launched a very successful Basket Ball class in our school.

We would like to push it further next year by creating connections with an American Middle School from Miami, Orlando, New-York, Boston, Baltimore or Washington.
