Job Description: Teach English in Strasbourg
What does this part-time teaching job look like? It’s not a traditional method, so you can get rid of your mental images of vocabulary exercises on a chalk board! We have been teaching English to French children since 2008 in their home environment with a unique method which imitates the way that children learn their native language – through spending time in a “bubble” of the language, playing, drawing, doing puzzles, reading, and so-on and so-forth. It is the job of our instructors to create this “bubble” and create the fun, stimulating environment needed to learn English in their daily routines.
Our instructors work closely with the children and their family – work which allows them a proper insight into French family life and culture, as well as a great relationship with some locals! It’s a brilliant experience and a great part-time job for students, expats, and any world travellers who are spending time in Strasbourg. With it being a part-time job, it’s perfect for those of you who are looking for flexibility: we create your schedule around what works best for you, and you can work anything from 4 to 20 hours per week depending on what you’re interested in doing. Plus, we fully train you and give you all the teaching materials you’ll need, giving you the chance to get some great teaching experience.
Here’s a quick bullet summary of the people we’re looking for, who should be:
- Native or native level English speakers
- Aged 18 or over
- EU citizen / in possession of a valid visa
- Experienced working with children (anything like childcare, tutoring, or sports coaching is great!)
- Available at least twice a week in out-of-school hours (so from about 4pm on weekdays and/or on Wednesdays and Saturdays – French kids don’t go to school on Wednesdays if you’re wondering why that’s in there!)
- Staying at least a whole semester / 3-4 months (or longer, of course)
- Kind, patient, keen, creative and responsible
Remember, you don’t need any teaching experience (because you’ll be fully trained!) or prior French speaking skills! We hire people with any level of French, whether beginner or fluent, and it makes no difference to your experience.

Why Work in Strasbourg?
Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace region in north-eastern France, and it’s got plenty to offer locals and internationals alike. Its history makes it the perfect melting pot for culture and gives it a firmly international feel, as well as a great blend of the German and French cultures which have made it the city it is today. In fact, it’s been a sort of European crossroads ever since it was named the capital of Europe after World War II, and it’s now the home to the European Parliament, the Palace of Human Rights, and the Council of Europe. So, it’s an important city on the global map, essentially. But beyond the important side of it, there’s a cool, buzzing, contemporary side to the city’s culture and way of life and it has so much to explore. Let’s take a look at just a few things going on in Strasbourg!
Things To Do in Strasbourg
La Petite France
This treasure is a UNESCO world heritage site, hidden away in the heart of Strasbourg’s old town, and it’s an amazing pocket of the city to go and explore. Once upon a time it was the cobblestoned home to local traders, such as tanners and fishermen, who lived and worked in the classic Strasbourg black and white timber houses, all bunched together. Enjoy the windows full of flowers, the little restaurants and cafés, the canals and the covered bridges. If you want to get a feel for the true Alsatian history and culture of Strasbourg, this is the place.
We’re not exaggerating when we say that this cathedral will take your breath away! It’s a beautiful, ornate, gothic work of architectural art built in the medieval times. It completely dominates the city centre. This pink sandstone beauty was the tallest building in the world for over 200 years, and to this day it’s still the tallest building in the world that was built entirely in medieval times. From the top of the tower you can see as far as the Black Forest and the Vosges mountains almost 20 miles away. And if that’s not interesting enough, legend has it that there’s an underground lake underneath the cathedral. It’s absolutely stunning inside and out, and we can’t recommend it enough!
Enjoy the city at Christmas
Strasbourg is the birthplace of a huge amount of Christmas tradition. Even the tradition of decorating a Christmas tree started in the region of Alsace, and in 1570 the very first Christmas market in Europe took place – making it the oldest one on the continent! Every year since then Strasbourg has put on a gorgeous festive market at Christmas which is warm, traditional, authentic, and Alsatian to its core. Find some mulled wine and little Christmas cakes, and see for yourself how Strasbourg truly earned its fame as the capital of Christmas.
Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art
Break away from some of that old tradition and get a breath of something a little newer with the art at this museum. With exhibitions of works of some big names, such as Monet and Picasso, as well as a catalogue of modern art from the last 150 years, there’ll definitely be something there for you to enjoy – whether it’s a painting, some photography, graphic arts or just the library and bookshop. Find out more.
Fancy learning about the art and traditions of Strasbourg throughout the years? This museum will teach you all the local information you need, reconstructing little domestic scenes as well as walk-throughs of how traditional trades used to work in the days before we had more advanced technology. You can see a huge collection of Strasbourg trinkets and items from tools to toys and get a great picture of how the city has evolved over the years. Read more about it here.
Parc de l’Orangerie
This marvellous park is a must-see, especially for those of you wanting a bit of time in the great outdoors. It’s just opposite the European Parliament, and with over 60 acres of parkland you can explore it for hours. It’s a stunning collection of beautiful lawns and tree-lined walkways, as well as a boating lake and an animal park! As the city’s oldest park, this place is a local favourite – so don’t miss it! Find out more about it here.
Study in Strasbourg
If you’re interested in studying in Strasbourg, take a look at some of the key educational institutions that the city has to offer! Studying abroad is a great experience, and one of the best parts about spending your time abroad in education is that it gives you plenty of free time to enjoy the city life and socialise (or to get a part-time job with us for some extra cash…), giving you a rich experience to remember for the rest of your life. So, here are a few of the key places you might be able to study abroad in Strasbourg.
University of Strasbourg
With over 500 years of history, this is a place which knows education very well indeed – perfect for its ever-growing student body. It offers the classic range of courses from arts to humanities to sciences to everything in between, so you’ll definitely find something for you. It’s also proud to be a firmly international institution with over 400 partnerships around Europe and even more worldwide. Read more about why they think you should choose them on their site.
Are you a budding computer scientist? Epitech is an educational institution with a presence all over France, including in Strasbourg, for refining computer science skills and giving a host of employment opportunities to its students, 96% of whom are employed after graduation! They welcome international students and offer summer schools too, so whether you want to spend a year there or a month there should be something for you. Read more over on their page about international students.
Are you an engineer or an architect? Or do you want to be one in Strasbourg? INSA is probably your best bet in this city. The school itself dates back to the end of the 19th century, but it joined the INSA group in 2003. With over 2000 students in its body, it offers hundreds of diplomas every year. Read more about them here.
