Hi,

I've mentioned this on a few other posts so don't want moderators to think I'm flooding the site. Smile

Consider signing up for the TESOL France Jobs List. It's free and will give you a good idea of the market and the best recruitment periods (beginning of the year, beginning of the school year in September and in June for after the summer).

You can sign up here: http://www.tesol-france.org/teachingjobs.php

Glad to hear you've got such an extensive experience! That will definitely help.

Would love to hear about your experience in Peru.

All the best!

More adverts for TESOL France.

Why will you never say that non EU nationals will have huge difficulties working in France or in most other countries in the EU ?

At least in this case the OP has dual citizenship, presumably with the second one in France, though it's not really clear.

Dear Mr. Bar,

Since pingouin59 mentioned having dual citizenship, certification and extensive experience, I felt that one of the best resources for 1) finding a teaching position in France and 2) getting an idea of the best time to apply would be letting him/her know about the TESOL France Jobs list.

It's a free mailing list run entirely by volunteers. In fact the entire association is run by volunteers. Our goal is to reach out to fellow teachers and help them with their own professional development.

You ask, "Why will you never say that non EU nationals will have huge difficulties working in France or in most other countries in the EU ?"

Actually we do. Almost daily. We receive emails from non-EU citizens asking if we can pass on their CVs and/or get them work in France. Of course we can't. Moreover, it's not the main purpose of the association! We inform them, as you have on this Discussion Forum, that's it's just not possible for non-EU citizens to simply relocate to France and find English Training work. We also mention this on our website (FAQ section).

And even if it were possible, the current private ELT market in France is changing rapidly and the number of positions available is not what it was in the 70s and 80s. Companies and language schools (especially in Paris) are getting pickier. I am personally glad to see that they are demanding more quality and qualifications. But that does mean that teachers are going to have to continue updating their methodology to keep up with the changing demands of today's trainee.
