Teaching in Paris - Thank You multiple languages

A good teaching experience

A very REWARDING WORK EXPERIENCE

“I wanted an opportunity to live and explore another city whilst sharing my culture with others. Also I thought it would be a good teaching experience before trying to tackle a full classroom of crazy kids.

I chose a job in Paris because I thought it would be cool to experience the capital city as a local.

I have felt that teaching is a very rewarding experience and when students finally learn a word or phrase, it is great for the teacher. I have also realised that I am definitely NOT ready to be a parent yet. It is always enjoyable when the kids actually learn something that you have been talking to them about for a while.

I wanted to experience Parisian culture and get to know Paris, especially the areas that are not as touristic. This has been met. Also I was expecting to be more fluent in French. Although it has improved, it hasn’t as much as I wanted.

I would recommend this job to some of my friends. I think it takes a very specific type of person to work in this job and you have to be very energetic, even more so than in a classroom.

Thanks for the cookies and coffee in the office. They were amazing!”
