The TAPIF program is a good way to see France. You should be aware that the stipend of EUR 800 won’t cover all your expenses, so you should treat this adventure a little like volunteering – it’s unlikely you’ll save anything, but you’ll come back enriched. The intake for this program is limited to applicants who have an intermediate understanding of French (you’ll have to prove this), so take some time to brush up your skills if you’re serious about it. Other jobs do exist in private academies, but are rarer and have more stringent requirements – you must be a native English speaker with EU citizenship and a CELTA level TEFL certificate. Check out EF, IFG, or Inlingua if you’d like to try this route. Another options is getting a Working Holiday visa if your home country has this arrangement with France – you can find teaching work when you arrive. There are online ads for paid programs promising you an easy job in France – make sure you do your due diligence and if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. In general, we recommend avoiding paying any fees for a work placement.
