No prior teaching credentials are required to apply for our jobs in France and teach English, as all Babylangues Instructors are fully trained and provided with extensive pedagogical material upon joining the company. Over the course of their sessions, instructors introduce children to a range of fun activities (singing, dancing, drawing, etc.) and acquire invaluable professional skills to teach English as a second language. Furthermore, working with a French family is a great chance for instructors to improve their French and gain a first-hand insight into French culture.

Free mobile phone: Once you become part of the Babylangues community, we can provide you with a mobile phone and contract for the duration of your stay, including two hours of calls a month, with unlimited texts within France, and Internet access.

Free Velib’ Pass: To help you get around the city, all Instructors are eligible to a free Velib’ pass, the Paris bike service. This subscription can be made at any point during your contract and lasts for a year, at which point you can simply renew your pass. The equivalent pass is also offered in our other cities in France.

Your contract is a CDI (contrat à durée indéterminée), which means there is no fixed end date. It is the safest type of contract in France. In accordance with French law, 10% of your pay will be put aside for you as “congés payés” (paid holiday). This will be paid to you during the school holidays to compensate for the absence of scheduled sessions in these periods. Being employed by a French company gives you the right to French Social Security and health insurance.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This section overviews troubleshooting issues in classrooms. It begins with introductions of the teacher to students and how to build relationships with the class. It also provides ideas on how to address issues of mixed language levels of students by pairing weak and strong students together. Provided in this section are examples of warmers or ice breakers, activities and games, etc.Working through this unit has given me a lot of insight and ideas too future lesson plans, I'm really excited to put into practise what this unit has taught me. And also find it interesting how all this falls into place in a lesson. I'v also realised how important it is to implement what iv learnt in this unit in each class and the impact and importance it has in each lesson students.
