(Guadeloupe french caribbean)
QUESTION: Hi, I'm Elise from Guadeloupe french caribbean, im 21 and i dream to go to Jamaica, but i have to found a job so that i stay in a little house and I thought about working as an assistant french teacher in a school?
Do you think it could be possible? Do you know some people around my age with whom I can speak about jamaica and exchange mails like a penpal and become friends?
Thank you very much to answer to my questions and BIG UP JAMAICA ! ;)ANSWER:

Thanks for stopping by and posting your question Elise.
Special welcome to you from lovely Guadeloupe, fellow Caribbean island!
Thanks for your deep interest your interest in coming here, I am sure your french language skills would be welcome here as well.
Yes, it is possible. Question though? Have you finished school? If so, why not come as a full french teacher, rather than an assistant?
I would suggest that you complete your education, if not yet done, at least to a level where you can attain a decent job here, and then hop over.
I am suggesting that as, like most countries around the world today, jobs are not easily have, but the more you qualify yourself academically, the better your chances - and your options. And who knows you might not need to stay in a 'little' house at all :-)
Regarding Jamaican penpals or finding persons to become friends, there are a lot. We Jamaicans are generally a friendly people and will embrace other nationalities and cultures. I am just not sure how much of those would speak french though - but maybe you can teach them :-)
I would just caution you to be careful though. Like everywhere else, there are people with ill intentions, so be smart in your dealings and get to know people before exposing or opening up yourself.
I would suggest you make contact through recognized Jamaican community, social and civic associations as a start, and there are many here. If you need some direction please contact me my friend.
Thanks again for your post!
Have a great rest of the day.
