Does anybody know what the TEFL market is like in Nice (or the whole PACA region)? They don't seem to have an awful lot of language schools in that area, so if you've been teaching in that area could share your thoughts? I would appreciate an up-to-date assessment of that region.

Also, for those teaching in the South of France, did you start directly in that region or did you start in Paris and worked your way south? Which option is more viable for a newbie? (with a Celta equivalent certificate and a EU passport)

Comments, experience, insights are greatly appreciated.

Hello : )
I lived in Nice for 12 years before I moved to Kuwait. They have a lot of language schools actually so the market is somewhat saturated.
You can make a living out of teaching but you will need to accummulate other occupations - translation and such like, especially at first.
If you have a Master's degree or a long career in teaching, you may also apply for a lectureship at the University - they are always in need of native speakers.
Other than that, CELTA is good but not essential. French people swear by their own legislation so if you have a "formateur" status, you will do better. Also, you will need to declare your activity - either as an autoentrepreneur or as a "profession liberale". Each has its own advantages and shortcomings. To really settle there, you absolutely need to master French.
If you are already in Nice, do not hesitate to send me e private message, I have some contacts that you might find useful. I'll send you their e-mails : )
Best of luck!
