Get your French up to scratch before working in France! Why not do a week’s French with us before your TEFL course starts, or after it ends? The dates are perfect for you! Group sizes are very small (max only 6 people – usually just two or 3*), and the classes take place at the TEFL training centre.
Spending your first week here learning French will give you the perfect introduction to the city of Toulouse. You will have time to get to know the city before the TEFL course starts, and also be able to practice your French with the locals! You can even add a “walkabout in Toulouse with the teacher” after lunch for just 30euros extra!
Spending a week learning French with us after your TEFL course will give you time for the dust to settle, and begin to properly get to know Toulouse. As the lessons are only half days, you can still teach English the other half of the day!
There is also no doubt that language schools are more likely to employ teachers who speak some French, as you will come across as being more likely to be living in France for the longer term. Whilst post – school French should be just about enough to get you by, you will feel much more comfortable professionally, not to mention kick-start your social life better, if you can have a basic conversation with colleagues and friends.
5 days Monday to Friday 9.30am to 12.30pm, or from 2pm to 5pm. We can usually add more weeks if you want them – just ask!
Small groups mean increased conversation practice and a more tailor-made course to suit your specific needs.
*Note that the main providers of French courses in Toulouse have groups of up to 16 people!
