Want to teach English in France?

I really like the Jenny n'est plus en France (Jenny is no longer in France) blog. Not only does she have great material about the French language, she also offers a lot of interesting cultural tidbits and sometimes job advice.

Recently she posted about the Teaching Assistant Program in France for 2012-2013 School Year. Basically you need:
  • To speak English
  • To speak French at an intermediate level (B1)
  • At least two years of University
  • Be under 30 years of age
Not exactly onerous requirements!

The pay is low, so housing assistance is available (not guaranteed) and you can opt for a second job, if desired. Not a bad addition to one's résumé or life experience!
