There are lots of opportunities for English language teachers to find TEFL Jobs in Paris. There are around 300 language schools in need of teachers, and it’s also possible to make a living freelance teaching.
The focus in Paris in on business English. Businesses in France have to spend money on continued training for their employees or face a higher tax bill. Business English courses are seen as a good way to spend that money, perhaps partly in recognition of English being the EU’s official language. Unfortunately this has led to negative consequences too, in that there are a lot of poor quality schools which keep the wages low for teachers (as little as 12 Euros an hour). Also students can be quite lethargic as often they are not studying out of choice.
