VI. Material’s Project
Paris is a city with over a thousand years of history and a rich cultural heritage. 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. One of the city’s most popular places is the Pompidou Centre. This is a must-visit place for the art lover.
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.
Additionally, amongst the newest attractions are the ruins of the Bastille prison, which has been transformed into a hub of Parisian nightlife. You will have a range of popular café joints, restaurants, and clubs, apart from the Opera Bastille to visit from.
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. 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, University 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.
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. It has become possible for U.S. citizens to teach legally in France with certain prerequisites.
As a contracted teacher, you will make between 1,400 – 1,800 Euros per month.
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.

You can find housing in apartments, hostels, or single rooms at very affordable prices.
