NEW IN 2020!
Virtual Exchanges - an E-ami.
Since Covid has severely restricted our travel and exchange possibilities, we are offering virtual exchanges, so that students can exchange with each other either by Skype or FaceTime, in their own time.
This scheme is open to children of 10 yrs upwards who are learning French. It is essential that your child is well motivated for this to be a success.
The equivalent scheme, years ago, would be having a French penpal.
You will be responsible for deciding with the French family - or their child - the frequency of the on-line chats. You can decide one session all in French and another session all in English or alternate weekly.
We will send you the profile of a suitable child, matching the age group, and, as far as possible, the same interests. In the event of the two children not being compatible, you will be offered one alternative profile.
An application can be made on this site ignoring the sections on the Registration Form, such as visit dates, which are not applicable. The application fee, to be paid as instructed by Paypal, is £40.
It is worth noting that this scheme may well lead to a physical exchange for your child in future years.
