I just started working with them and I can see that from day one, the whole team is there to back you up to help you have a successful year. Even though the offices are in Paris and I live and teach in Lyon, I still feel well communicated with the pedagogic and administration team. The material they provide is very useful and it helps you save time when planning your lessons.
I strongly suggest working with them, it's a serious company that helps kids have fun while learning English and most of all it takes good care of their teachers.

I have recently started working in a school with CapEnglish and so far I am really happy with how everything is going.
CapEnglish have provided a teacher's programme along with all of the materials such as books, flashcards etc for each class. This is fantastic as it means I don't have to spend hours preparing for each class from scratch. The CapEnglish team are very helpful and friendly and are always a phonecall/email away if I need anything at all. The company is very professional, the salary is great and it's a great kick start to my teaching career. I'm really happy to be a part of the CapEnglish family 😊

Great work-life balance. CapEnglish provides flexible work arrangements, including flexible hours. They also provide you with everything you need to teach (flashcards, teacher's books), so you don't have to spend a lot of time on planning your lessons.
All employees, and managers are kind, and supportive. They are always willing to help when needed, and they make everyone working here feel like they do belong, and that they are welcomed.
I am really happy working here at CapEnglish.
Strongly recommend to join us!:)

I’ve been working for almost 2 years for Cap English. It is a very serious company who offers competitive pay and all the support that I need to thrive in my job as a teacher.

I work 18 hours a week in two very nice private primary schools in Paris. The students are usually well-behaved and I’ve never had any major problems but if I have a problem, Cap English is always there to give me the support I need.

Last year, I worked 9 hours and I did some substitute teaching which was nice. I like the flexibility that they provide.

Cap English provides all the materials and lesson plans but it allows you to adapt your lessons according to your students’ needs. They offer you lots of different resources like songs, games, supplies, books, flashcards, puppets etc.

It is a very friendly environment to work for and I’ve got to meet teachers from different countries. I can always contact Cap English by phone or by e-mail when I’m unsure of something and they are always there to support me when I need.

Teaching for Cap English is very rewarding and I can see the students progressing with their method. I like to teach for Cap English.

Why did you choose this program?

I chose Cap English because I liked their approach to young learners.

As a teacher, it's important for me to share the same values as the institution I work with. Even from the Cap English website, I could see that we were going to be a good match since I could see myself reflected in their paragraphs.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

The Cap English team has helped me a lot from the selection process to the moment I gave my first lesson. Even now, I feel like they have my back with any concerns or questions that I may have.

Cap English have effective communication. Even though they operate throughout the entire country (France), they are just one phone call away and aware of your work, making sure you have everything you need to succeed.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

Living, working and studying abroad opens your horizons but it also helps you reevaluate the person that you think you are up until now. You will find yourself eating things that you would never think possible before, meeting people that otherwise you would have never met. By the end of the year, you will know a lot more than just the cliches everyone knows from the country, but also you will know a lot more about yourself.

Get out of your comfort zone and try it! It's possible and easier than it seems!

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

As a Cap English teacher, your schedules give you time to prepare your lessons with the advice and material they have at your disposition, but you also have time to enjoy life and sunny days in the city.

You would be attending different schools as a Cap English ambassador; some of the material will already be there, so no need to carry around a big suitcase. You'll have free hands to discover your city once the lesson it's over.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

When I arrived in France, I knew how to say three phrases: bonjour, s'il vous plaît, merci (good morning, please and thank you), so I panic every time someone spoke to me, but it turns out these three magic words and a big smile are the keys to be well-received everywhere you go.

Now I'm able to speak fluent French, but it took a lot of mistakes and mispronunciations. Practice makes the master; mistakes are just part of the learning process.

Do you have a favorite story you'd like to share?

Funny story...

I found love while dancing salsa. I didn't even like it that much while living in my home country (you see, rediscovering myself) and now I have salsa lessons every Monday with my soon to be husband and I have fun and enjoy it like I never did before. And of course, he became an awesome French teacher for me.
