I just read of a recent development that Guadeloupe will have 3rd & 4th grade students meeting cruises at the cruise terminal to welcome passengers.  They will act as ambassadors participating on excursions, sharing their history, culture and geography with visitors.  The young students will be those who are studying English and German.  This sounds like a win-win situation for everyone.  The students get to practice their foreign languages and the passengers get to meet delightful youngsters and learn first hand from them about life in Guadeloupe.
