This organisation has long running job notifications on various websites - although not, to my knowledge, on ESL cafe.

Be aware that certainly in northern France the "chiffre d'affaires est sensiblement en baisse." The ramifications of this fact is that the number of in-company hours alloted to teachers is very low and makes it impossible for a teacher living in, say, Le Havre, to pay rent and live. The month of May compacts this situation even further and it becomes necessary to subsidize living costs from elsewher.

On top of that is the fact that new applicants are expected to be motorized. Cars in France can run on the cheaper E10 petrol (10% ethanol) but what with road tools and garage bills, running a car will obviously eat up more of the teacher's income.

Be extremely wary about replying to one of these adverts. They promise about 850 teaching hours per year but in fact, after working there for about 2 months I still had only about 90 hours worked - when it should be closer to 150.

Look before you leap!
