If you study French with the Alliance Francaise in Toulouse after your TEFL course, then you will be in France legally and can set up as a freelance teacher for the duration of your study. Language schools increasingly want all their teachers to be freelancers these days. You are legally allowed to work up to 20 hours a week on a student visa.
There's more- The Alliance Francaise in the Place du Capitole in Toulouse provide a 10% discount on French courses for TEFL TOULOUSE trainees!
Here is the procedure, which you should begin several months in advance:
you apply for our course as normal http://tefltoulouse.com/tefl-course/application-form and look at the dates of the 4 week intensive courses with the Alliance Francaise .http://www.alliance-toulouse.org/nos-cours.php?g=cours-intensifs&idType=1. to see when you can start their course (asap after ours ends)
You will need to purchase 6 months of their 4 week courses (at around 470euros each, after your discount) to get the student visa. They will bill you for the first 3 of their courses upfront and when they receive this payment they will send you the receipt. You use this receipt to apply for a student visa. You should use http://www.campusfrance.org/en who help you with the visa procedure.
You then pay the Alliance Francaise the balance for the second 3months course when you start your course with them.
Their courses will be in the mornings, and so you are free to teach in the afternoons and evenings. The Alliance Francaise also offer a range of activities (cooking, wine tasting, local visits..) as well as accommodation during your French course.
Once you are in France on a long term student visa, you can usually renew it without needing to go home by arranging more studies. Want more information? Just email us
