TESOL Jobs in France

Job Market

Teaching English in France is a great experience for those who wish to experience the French culture and learn to speak French for work purposes. France offers a great European experience for Australians, Canadians, and New zealanders under 35 years old who do not have an EU passport. Agreements exist between these countries and France to grant a temporary work permit to young professionals. Contact the embassy for more information about the ‘Working Holiday Visa’  before embarking on your TESOL journey.

Most teachers in France work as freelance contractors for ESL schools and job agencies that send teachers to ‘in-company’ Business English courses.


Teachers earn 15-20 euros per hour in Paris, where most jobs are found.

Minimum requirements

University degree
EU citizen / passport holder or work permit
