Date posted:2019-09-26 | Writer: Your English Workshop | Email: [email protected]

Your English Workshop is recruiting a full time TEFL position in Chambery/ Aix les Bains Savoie. We are looking for a native level English teacher to join our team as soon as possible, we specialize in teaching children and adults.  In this role, the teacher will be responsible for teaching and engaging and helping these students to achieve the best academic results they can in English. It is a post that requires French, adaption, vision, anticipation, commitment and the consistent role modeling for pupils if you have experience with children this would be a welcoming position.

We will prepare all the lessons with programs from Oxford and us, through speaking, listening and games. These classes for our teachers are prepared in advance, and the teacher will have practically no preparation to do and a very little marking of books, exercises, tests, etc.  The teacher will need to have a good level of French as French children and ‘beginner/elementary’ adults are used to being taught in French (!), though we try to maximize the level of English in our classes by speaking English as much as possible. Our belief at Your English Workshop is that every child/ adult has the capacity to learn English as a foreign language our approach is through programmes created by us and tested in our centers.


Our English school, “Your English Workshop” is based in Aix Les Bains and La Ravoire (Chambéry) in the Savoy, France. The school was established in Aix Les Bains at the start of 2012 and last year had approximately 100-120 regular, weekly students (children and adults from 5 years to 75 years old) and approximately 200 students as a whole over the year joined for private English lessons either in groups or individually.  Our teachers generally teach from our Aix Les Bains and Chambery premises, but we also go directly to client offices and homes in the region.
