TEFL in Paris / TESOL in Paris

Our program in Paris takes place in a beautifully maintained, historical building in the neighborhood of the Sorbonne (the oldest university in Paris).

This area is a lovely, totally safe student environment. From here it’s just a short distance to get to those sights Paris is so famous for.

Everything is in immediate reach: nice cafes, bistros, bars, shopping, movie theatres and dance clubs where you can meet beautiful people to spend your time with.

During breaks, students have access to coffee machines and a nice indoor lunch area. If the weather is pleasant, the school has an outdoor area with patio furniture and trees that give shadow.

Our TEFL teaching practice students come from all walks of life. They are business professionals, students and housewives. They live in Paris and come to the school daily to be taught.


The school offers free French classes to all interested TEFL trainees throughout the duration of their TEFL course.  Classes take place every week and last two hours.   Graduates of our institute can continue for 50 euro/month as long as they want.   Other individuals may participate for 80 euro per month.   Private French classes can be scheduled for an extra fee.  Please contact the school for more information.

Unsure whether you need a visa for France?   Please visit the website of the French consulate in New York and take the visa wizard.  It will tell you whether you need one, no matter what country you come from.

With Paris being the No. 1 tourist location in the world, it is understandable that France, in general, is a dream destination for many people. Teaching English provides for one way of making a living here and a way of making new friends. A 120-hour TEFL or TESOL Certificate in your pocket is the minimum qualification you need to get started. And the good news is that, apart from Paris and some Mediterranean locations, most of France is still FAR from being overrun by TEFL teachers. English teaching jobs are available everywhere.

In many countries, advanced qualifications are required to enter schools; the French, however, are more likely to hire native English-speaking teachers based on other credentials. While it’s wise to be able to put a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate on the table, advanced degrees are not required. A Bachelor’s Degree in almost any subject and some French skills will take you a long way to a rewarding teaching position.

What type of work is out there? How much will I get paid? Well, Business English still seems to be No. 1. “Young Learners” are on the up in France. Teaching teenager groups after school will probably take off soon, as it did in Spain in the 90s.
Although you can work a number of hours while holding a student visa, this should not be considered as the only way of supporting yourself. If you plan on staying in France for an extended period of time, you are well advised to obtain a work visa. Obtaining a work visa requires finding an organization that is willing to sponsor you throughout the process. As a contracted teacher, you will make between 1,400 – 1,800 Euros per month.

It has become possible for U.S. citizens to teach legally in France with certain prerequisites. Please ask the center for more information.

Teaching English in France is also possible at the private level. If you’re not interested in working for a school, college, or a corporation, consider teaching private lessons. As a private teacher in people’s homes, you can expect to earn about 15-20 Euros per session. If you are planning on staying in France, it can be a great way to supplement your income. The training center can help with in setting this up. Teaching over the telephone has become particularly popular in France. It offers teachers the opportunity to even work while living in another country.

If you’re interested in the French culture and know French to some extent, teaching English in France can be a great way to make a living. You need to do some homework before embarking on your adventure. It’ll take some effort, but it’s very possible to make this your lifelong career and one of the most wonderful experiences in your life.

A visitor to the wonderful “City of Light,” as it is lovingly called, has sheer unlimited tourist attractions to view, and most of them are in walking distance around the city center.

One of the city’s most popular places is the Pompidou Centre. This is a must-visit place for the art lover.

The boulevard Champs-Elysees, the hub of high culture, represents the style of Paris. Extending from the Arc de Triomphe, the area is lined with chic restaurants, shops and exclusive boutiques.

Amongst the new attractions is the neighborhood in and around the ruins of the Bastille prison which has been transformed into a hub of Parisian nightlife. Here, one finds a range of popular café joints, restaurants, and clubs apart from the Opera Bastille.

Paris is a city with over a thousand years of history and a rich cultural heritage.  Who doesn’t remember the immortal hunchback of Notre Dame or the musketeers who fascinated people around the world in movies?  Just imagine visiting Versailles—a place not accessible to the general public during the time of Luis XIV.  The beauty of Paris’ architecture and its artistic development is a delight for one and all.

One of the most outstanding achievements and a representation of French civic pride is the breathtaking Eiffel Tower. A visitor to the tower will enjoy a spectacular view of what is the world’s most visited city.

And finally, the endless shopping and fine dining opportunities make Paris a haven for the tourists.  Shopping for perfumes, cheese, wine, elegant jewelry and antiques in this magnificent city is worth every penny.


Although its latitude (48°52’0″N) is roughly the same as Vancouver or the Island of Newfoundland in Canada, Paris benefits from a temperate climate as a result of its location in Western Europe and the warming effects of the Gulf Stream.

The average temperatures in Paris generally range between 5°C (41°F) during winter and 20°C (68°F) in summer. July is the hottest month of the year, and January is the coldest.  As a rule, it is slightly warmer in Paris than in the suburbs. The effects of urbanization result in significant differences of temperature between the city’s center and the outskirts, regularly recording one or two degrees higher.

Spring, from March to May, is the driest season. Rainfall is distributed fairly evenly throughout the other seasons. Paris is known for its frequent showers, which tend to pass just as quickly as they arrive. It is not unusual to witness bright sunshine one moment, then a quick shower followed by a return to sunshine — all within the course of a few minutes’ time.


Airport pickup can be arranged for by contacting  [email protected] .

The school offers free French classes to all TEFL trainees (upon request).  Classes take place twice a week for beginning and intermediate learners for the duration of the TEFL training.  A class lasts 40 minutes.  We can arrange for personalized French classes for an extra charge.
