Teach English Abroad in an Olympic Host Country
By Catherine Rose Mountain
When I first met Valerie, she was taciturn
and sulky. When you teach private one-on-one English lessons, this is your worse nightmare: a student who won’t talk. When it’s just the two of you, and the student refuses to take interest in the lesson you’ve so carefully prepared, what do you do?
With the exceptions of assistantship programs operated by the French government or the British Council, those looking to teach English in France will find the vast majority of teaching and tutoring opportunities in-person locally on the ground in France. Most language schools interview prospective teachers face-to-face in France. While part-time and free-lancing opportunities can for teaching English in France be found year-round, we still highly recommend that you plan on being in France during the end of summer (late August – early October) and in January. Some summer camps and schools also recruit during the winter and spring for summer opportunities.
