I'm planning to move to France to look for teaching work this autumn. I live in Slovakia at the moment but feel it will soon be time for a change of scene, and I've wanted to live in France for a while. I know it isn't the easiest country to find work in, so I want to make sure I am in the right place at the right time. I'd like to go to the south; some of the places I'm considering are Montpellier (looks like the most likely option at the moment), Bordeaux and Aix-en-Provence. Does anyone have any advice about living and working in these cities, the likelihood of finding work, or the best time to look for it?

To summarise my qualifications etc: I am 23, British with a BA in English and the CELTA. By the summer I will have 18 months' experience with two language schools in Slovakia, teaching General English to adults and some children. I can speak French at roughly intermediate level and am thinking of enrolling on a language course in France for a few weeks in the summer. Oh, and I don't have a driving licence.
Any advice/info greatly appreciated - thank you!

Take a look at - in the section "rubrique" enter enseignement langues or formation langues. Add the name of the town/city that interests you.

That will give you the names and numbers of all the places you could apply.

Alternatively contact the relevent Rectorat and register as a vacataire (replacement teacher).

If you look at you can find listed vacancies - mostly just a few hours per week, though.
