Hi Emmanuelle!
I would definitely consider an area other than Rennes (my hometown!), and even if I find a school in or around Rennes, I am sure I could find another school for you :)
I was thinking of hosting up to 15 French students next October (2016), perhaps the last week close to Halloween time! And I would like to travel to France with probably about the same amount of students in March-April 2017 (during of close to our Spring Break). My school already has exchange programs with 3 other countries, so it will not be a problem to get the project approved by our school board. The name of our district is Phoenixville Area School District if you would like to visit our website (select High School). I am looking to hearing from you, and eventually speaking with you :)

Je pensais que ça serait préférable de faire l'échange dans la même année scolaire comme ça on garde les mêmes élèves et les élèves de dernière année peuvent participer. Ça vous laisse un an pour préparer votre voyage aux États-Unis. Peut-être que votre lycée pourrait faire une exception dans ce cas-la. Je vais jeter un coup d'œil à votre site web. Restons en contact :)

Bonjour Emmanuelle,
Du nouveau au sujet du projet d'echange scolaire 2016-2017? Comme je l'ai deja mentionne, nous aimerions que ca se fasse dans la meme annee scolaire pour que nos eleves de terminal puissent en profiter. Est-ce que ca serait d'accord avec votre proviseur et les familles?

Bonjour Valérie,

Je te présente mes meilleurs vœux de bonne et heureuse année 2016. Pour le voyage, nous sommes un peu en stand by cette année:  suite aux attentats de novembre deux voyages (en République tchèque et en Russie) sont reportés à l'année 2016-2017.

Si l'échange se fait avec les USA, je pense aussi que ce serait mieux sur la même année scolaire. Pour nous, il ne faut pas que ce soit pendant les vacances, et partir en automne est trop tôt dans l'année. Les voyages se font en général vers mars-avril. Peut-on envisager que les 2 séjours se fassent de manière rapprochée? 

En 2016-2017 nous aurons  nos breaks du 4 au 20 février, puis du 1er au 18 avril. En-dehors de ces  périodes les élèves pourraient accueillir et partir. Les cours se terminent début juin.

Pour nous il s'agirait de proposer le voyage à des élèves de seconde, soit 15-16 ans.

Dis-moi ce que tu en penses. A bientôt par mail.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless

mr frank.

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.
