Why do a TEFL course in the South of France?

15 reasons why you should choose the South of France for your TEFL course:

  1. The weather here in Toulouse is close to perfect. Extremely warm and dry in the summer, often sunny and bright in the winter.
  2. AtlanticMediterranean or Pyrenees mountains ? Toulouse is just a few hours drive from all three. Surfing, walking and sunbathing…
  3. The English teaching profession is still fairly young in France – unlike in Spain for example, where the market is quite saturated and wages are down.
  4. Gain teaching practice teaching real French people. Generally very kind and polite , the perfect people to practice your teaching on!
  5. Everyone wants to meet you in Toulouse. It’s true – the moment your “accent anglais” is detected, you’ll be fighting them off!
  6. The food. Remember France is the world’s food reference point. And it isn’t expensive, especially if you shop at Street markets
  7. The local wine .You can get a great bottle for under 5 euros! Bordeaux is just 2 hours on the train, but local wines (Gaillac,  Saint Mont, Corbieres..) are all good.
