I would like to have my students speak French to native French speakers. I would also be willing to have my students (or English class students) speak English with native French speakers seeking to improve their English langauge skills.
I would like to connect with other French teachers with the goal of improving my French langauge skills as well as exchanging ideas in methodology.
Ages of Your Students (if Applicable)
High School, ages 15 - 18
I teach French in a public school in northern New Jersey, USA. I am interested in sharing and creating innovative methodology in foreign language education that is centered around getting students to speak in the target language.
I am also actively trying to improve my langauge skills and would like to network with teachers that would like to do the same. Also, I am interested in keeping the French language viable in the USA and would like to collaborate with other educators on ideas and means of promoting the language regionally and nationally.
I'm an English teacher in Jean Monnet High School situated in Cognac (in the South-West of France). I'm also looking for a pairing with an American school. My students are between 15-18 years old. Our school is trying to develop its communication tools (we'll soon have skype in our classrooms to be able to communicate more easily with schools abroad.)
We used to have an exchange program with a Californian school but it is a few years they can't come to France because they miss teachers to supervize. If you're interested in exchanging with me and my students through conversations, letters etc... we may be able in the future to make them meet during school trips between our two countries...
I'm looking forward to heraing or reading from you soon...
Have a nice week-end!

I'm looking for a partnership with a high school in or close to New York City. I'll be teaching 15 year olds next year. They're in what we call here the "Euro" program which means that they have 2 more hours per week of english classes so they're very motivated kids. There will be around 20 or 25 of them. I'd like for them to spend 2 weeks in the States sometime in April next year (2014). I'm looking for a school who would let them attend the classes for one week and families ready to host them… Continue
French-English bilingual programs in New York City’s public schools are growing. The programs were developed not only to serve the French families who had initiated after-school programs, but also to meet the needs of a growing number of diverse Francophone immigrant children who are emergent bilinguals, better known as English Language Learners. Also, more and more non-French-speaking families are signing up for these high quality…
