General » Finding work in France
Hi,

Is anyone currently teaching in France, or does anyone have contacts at schools in France?

My boyfriend and I have been applying to schools for the past few months, in hopes of finding work for September start. Ideally we would like to find a job before we leave, but we have
started to plan on conducting a massive job hunt once we arrive in Paris at the end of August.

Can anyone offer any tips on finding work either from Canada or once we arrive? We are interested in working anywhere in France.

Thanks a million,
Elektra
General » Canada - France Working Holiday VISA
Hello!

These are questions for anyone who has ever applied for a French Working Holiday VISA, or is very familiar with the requirements. As you know, the French Consulate doesn't take any
calls about VISAs, and I want to make sure I have everything done right before my boyfriend and I head to our appointment in August.

1. Excess medical insurance - One of the requirements is to purchase excess medical insurance for the year of the VISA. Is it sufficient to purchase emergency medical insurance? Specifically, we are planning on going with Bon Voyage Travel Insurance from TravelCUTS. Do you know if this plan would be appropriate?

2. On the consulate website, it says that VISAs can be issued that day. Do you know if this is the case, or will we have to wait for them to mail us something? We are leaving for Paris 2 weeks after our appointment, so getting our VISAs immediately is ideal.

Hopefully someone can help us out with these answers - we don't want to get turned down!

Thanks a lot,
Elektra

General » Need help with writing my CV and class experience
Hi!

Your TESOL instructor will be able to help you out with your resume. First, you can read over the resume chapter in your orange book to help you with some teaching experiences that you may not have thought of. THen once you have your first draft, you can send it off to your instructor for the final tweaking!

Good luck!

Sincerely,

Andrea

Could anybody tell me how to "ease in" into teaching?

General » Vacation!
Hi David,

There are still a few summer positions posted on the Job Board for China, you should check those out! Also, www.tefl.com still have a ton of openings for England. England is pretty easy to get a job if you are eligable for the Holiday work visa (basically, you just have to be under 30).

If you want more info, you can contact me at andrea_d@globaltesol.com.

Sincerely,

Andrea Dinan
