Teach English in France on this unique chance to live and experience this European country for 3 months. You will be working alongside a French co-teacher, assisting with English conversation skills. The program is designed for people who don’t have teaching experience. You will not be expected to lead a class on your own, but you will be asked to prepare and lead lessons or discussions with your students. Participants will live with a French host family throughout the program. This is an amazing opportunity to truly live as the French do!
