Need some extra income in France? Fancy a new start away from Brexit and Trump? Our TEFL course is just what you need.
The course really helps you gain confidence giving presentations even to very large groups - which you will probably need to do at some point in your career, even if you are not sure teaching is for you.
Already TEFL teaching but not fully qualified? TEFL refresher course? UK teacher fed up with discipline problems and paperwork? Many of our trainees are disillusioned school teachers or existing TEFL teachers. TEFL in France is one of the most popular jobs for people quitting UK teaching
Not au fait with our two locations? look at Toulouse , look at Biarritz and nearby Bayonne

Student visa in France for Americans
Can Americans teach English in France? Yes!
"I did the TEFL Toulouse course in 2014 and have been teaching English in Toulouse ever since, on a student visa, studying French at the Alliance Francaise for few hours a day. I switched to a freelancer visa my second year in France. This is a great route for Americans to take if they really want to live and work in France, and TEFL Toulouse and the Alliance Francaise here can make it happen for you" Katya Smundak, San Francisco, USA
How it works:
If you book intensive French courses to begin immediately after your TEFL course, then you can come to France on a student visa, and stay here legally for a year or more. With this visa you can set up as a freelance teacher (nearly all teachers are frelancers now) The Alliance Francaise in the Place du Capitole in Toulouse provide TEFL Toulouse trainees with a 10% discount on their Student Visa French course
Here is the procedure, which you should begin several months in advance:
You apply for our course, and contact Maggy at the Alliance Francaise Toulouse
to find out when you can start their course (asap after ours ends) and confirm your discount. We work together.
Once we have accepted you, you purchase 6 months of their 4 week courses (at 468 euros each, after your discount) to get the student working visa. They will bill you for the first 3 of their courses upfront and when they receive this payment they will send you the registration certificate. You use this registration certificate to apply for a student working visa. Campus France can help you with the whole visa procedure.
You 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 will be 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 the Alliance Francaise as above or us
