Hi

I am moving to the South of France (St Raphael/Frejus area) next summer with my french boyfriend to be closer to his family and am looking for any information on teaching english while I am there. I am currently in retail management and although my french is getting better I won't be fluent enough to pursue employment in my field and have always enjoyed the training part of my job so thought teaching english would be a good start. I have looked into TEFL courses and am enrolling on one that provides classroom and business english training, along with english grammar as I would like to focus on teaching business english if possible. I am wondering if anyone has any feedback on my plan and if it should be possible? Also anyone who has experience of teaching english I would love to hear about your experiences good or bad.

We will be living with my bf's family at first then looking to rent for about 6 months before we decide where we will finally settle in the area.

Thanks for looking at my post and I appreciate any information from you all

Margaret

Teaching English in France is not the most lucrative of professions, given the number of native speakers readily available to teach. You should, of course, look into employment opportunities with the various language schools in the area (though they may well want you to speak enough French to be able to handle the usual formalities). Check the Pages Jaunes website (cours de langue or ecoles de langue as the "quoi" and your town or departement as the "ou") to see what's available in the area.

Your other option is to go freelance - find your own business and/or private clients. Takes a bit of networking skills, but it means you can set your own rates and hours.
Cheers,
Bev
