Teach EFL in France This Spring!

Date posted:2019-01-23 | Writer: American Village, Nacel | Email: [email protected]

American Village Camps seek energetic, creative, initiative-takers who are native level English speakers & love working with children. We’ve been running English immersion camps in France since 1994! Our English Language Counselors live at our immersion camps, scattered in the countryside across France.

Working at American Village Camps is a good first ESL job. It gives you experience:

- Implementing lesson plans (2 hrs of ESL class, daily)

- Using ESL games

- Working with beginners

- Practicing TPR

- Perfecting your communication skills

- Meeting other ESL teachers

- Getting international work experience

All the while having fun with games and activities in English.

For more seasoned ESL teachers, it is a good fit if you are ready to get out of the classroom and onto the playing field! This is a language camp counselor job, there are no ESL office hours, if the kids have questions, they will ask you while playing with you in activities!

- Are you a team player, organized, and able to disconnect from technology during working hours (no smartphones while with the kids)?

- Are you kind, caring and friendly: a people-person?

- Are you capable of organizing activities: sports, arts & crafts, dance, large scale games?

- Are you excited about performing in skits, telling stories, leading songs & cheers?

- Are you creative and excited about brainstorming as a team?

- Are you receptive to learning about our approach to teaching English, and implementing it in and outside of the classroom?
