We have been helping teachers get work since 2003
 

Teach English in France. If you are looking for long paid holidays then France is for you. There is a strong teachers union in France and they look after their English teachers with 1 year contracts or life long contracts offered, unlike Spain or Italy that give 9 month contracts by schools. Qualifications do help, but are not obligatory, especially if you have experience. Non European Union English teachers will have problems finding work in schools, working "under the table" is almost impossible here, especially when there are so many willing and legal recruits just across the channel.

As an English teacher in France, you can expect to earn 20 euros an hour after tax (almost 10% pa). Full time contracts are very rare, but exist, paying around 1800 euros a month net for 25 English teaching hours a week, averaged over the year. Most schools will offer a “permanent contract” called a C.D.I, which does not usually guarantee the number of hours over every month, but over a year – this means that for example, a 900 hour yearly contract will be fine in peak periods, but in February, July and August you will have almost no hours and no cash, but still have bills to pay! Private lessons charge twenty to fourty euros an hour. To find work it is best to email the ESL schools directly and then wait for replies while you are in your native country or hanging out in Paris! English teachers are in demand in France and there are a lot of Teaching ESL jobs about..

There’s a major rented accommodation shortage in Paris, meaning rents from around 400 euros for a room in a shared flat (usually with other foreigners), 650 euros a month for a small studio flat, and 900 for a one-bedroom/ tiny two bedroom flat. Check out FUSAC (a small-ads magazine, free at any expat hangout or online), and “Particulier a Particulier” a French accommodation magazine with cheaper offers, but don’t expect too much when you’re in competition with hundreds of locals. Deposits are usually two months rent, and you may be asked for wage slips and/or a job contract.

LIVING COSTS in the cities: Supermarkets are pretty cheap, and the quality usually quite high. The metro is excellent and a one month travel pass for the basic two zones is about 50 euros a month, including buses and metro. Eating out is relatively cheap, a decent meal with wine can be found from fifteen euros up. Shop prices in general seem reasonable for Europe. Going out is expensive though: a pint of beer is about 6 euros for example, a coke or coffee about 3, spirits around 6 euros. There are lots of happy hours dotted around, and of course, cheaper local bars. In smaller towns the prices can be half the price!!!

French schools are pretty strict and English teachers are relatively well respected. Most of your students will be in one to one / small groups, so discipline is rarely a problem. French people do like to talk, and generally make great ESL students, they also love tests. Their timekeeping though, is poor! Just download the TEFL jobs contact list on this page to find your next teaching English job in France it's that simple.

For the climate expect a basic temperate climate, with some chilly winters and sticky summer months: heating and air conditioning are not really brilliant here. Parisians are a notoriously unfriendly bunch: downright rude waiters and shop workers are the norm for expats and locals alike – don’t take it personally, even though it can wear you down a little. It’s quite hard to meet people here, it’s not so common for locals to chat with strangers – there are expat bars though, for salvation! Public transport is excellent, but crowded. Crime is low, but pickpockets are a very good at their jobs here. T.V. is generally awful, almost entirely dubbed into French: good for your language skills.
