Type of Collaborations You Are Looking For
Exchange letters or emails, or live discussions via internet and if possible a real trip to meet some students in the US!
Ages of Your Students (if Applicable)
I was in Akron, teaching at Firestone in 2007, and have been in the US many times before.
From september 2010 on, I'll be teaching in a High school in Bondy (Seine Saint Denis, near Paris).
I'll be teaching some of my classes in English (European section), so I'd love to organize some kind of exchange for these students.
My name is Michelle, I’m one of the moderators for the site; I wanted to extend a warm welcome/bienvenue, thanks for joining!
I hope you will be able to find what you are looking for here - feel free to post and explore – the simplest place to start might be one of the three groups for different class levels (high school/lycée, middle school/collége, and university/université); you may post a bit about your class, or the type of exchange you are interested in there. If you’d like a little more information, there’s a forum posting (it’s the section just beneath the groups) which explains this in a bit more detail.
Adding more details - pictures, blog links, music, whatever you feel helps convey more about you - generates more responses and connections.
I am getting in touch with more contacts to help facilitate exchanges; we also had a very exciting seminar hosted by the American Embassy here in Paris - all about using the internet to facilitate classroom exchanges. Here is the link to the wiki page we created, which has some really fascinating tools and links to explore:
We’ll be sure to keep you informed and share the information and tips, but please don't hesitate to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or message here if there’s something that you haven’t been able to locate or if you have any ideas for things you’d like to have on the site.
I teach French I- IV (so 9-12th grade) in a small town in Iowa called Anamosa, about 3 hours from Chicago. I am hoping to exchange letters or emails with students in France, and maybe arrange a host family stay.
It's wonderful that you have so much diversity in your class. I want to teach my students that French is spoken by many different people all over the world.
We are planning a trip to Paris with a group of 12 students (mostly age 16, some 17 and 18) in June 2012. I am hoping that during part of our trip (about 5 days) we can stay with families so that the students will have the chance to make international friends.
We would also be happy to welcome a group of students here. You could visit Chicago or St Louis and then stay with us and attend classes.
Let me know what you think!

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.

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. The…
