Whats the job situation like in Paris and France at the moment?
First of all, the French national education system doesn’t have a very good reputation amongst the general French population themselves, and exam results prove that the French are amongst the least competent English speakers in Europe. Secondly, as French companies become more and more international, they are finding that their employees poor English skills are holding them back and are therefore constantly investing in English training for their personnel. Thirdly, French companies are actually obliged by law to put aside a certain sum for training their employees, and one of the best ways of spending this money is on English training. Fourthly, the turnover of English teachers in the large cities of France is way above the average. It seems that many people who look for English teaching jobs in the adult education system (with private language schools, for example) are very mobile, and tend to move on after a year or too. This leads to an endless supply of teaching positions opening
