The weather is sunny, hot, with dry summers and mild winters. Being the capital and the biggest city of the French Riviera, Nice allows for easy access to many famous places such as Cannes, Monaco, Saint Tropez, or even Italy if you travel a little further by train, bus, boat….
The city is not only a paradise for tourists but also a great place for students. The University of Nice is labelled University of Excellence with more than 35,000 students.

WORK IN NICE AS A TEFL
A 120-Hour TEFL or TESOL Certificate in your pocket is the minimum qualification you need to get started. And the good news is that, apart from Paris and some Mediterranean locations, most of France is still FAR from being overrun by TEFL teachers. English-teaching jobs are available everywhere.
In many countries, advanced qualifications are required to enter schools; the French, however, are more likely to hire native-like English-speaking teachers based on other credentials. While it is wise to be able to put a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate on the table, advanced degrees are not required. A Bachelor’s Degree in almost any subject and teaching skills will take you a long way to a rewarding teaching position.
What type of work is out there? How much will I get paid? Well, Business English still seems to be No. 1. “Young Learners” are on the up in France. Teaching teenager groups after school will probably take off soon, as it did in Spain in the 90s. Although you can work a number of hours while holding a student visa, this should not be considered as the only way of supporting yourself.
If you plan on staying in France for an extended period of time, you are well advised to obtain a work visa. Obtaining a work visa requires finding an organization that is willing to sponsor you throughout the process. As a contracted teacher, you will make between 1,400 – 1,800 Euros per month. It has become possible for U.S. citizens to teach legally in France with certain prerequisites. Please ask the center for more information.
Teaching English in France is also possible at the private level. If you are not interested in working for a school, college, or a corporation, consider teaching private lessons. As a private teacher in people’s homes, you can expect to earn about 15-20 Euros per session. If you are planning on staying in France, it can be a great way to supplement your income. The training center can help with in setting this up. Teaching over the telephone has become particularly popular in France. It offers teachers the opportunity to even work while living in another country.
If you are interested in the French culture and know French to some extent, teaching English in France can be a great way to make a living. You need to do some homework before embarking on your adventure. It will take some effort, but it is very possible to make this your lifelong career and one of the most wonderful experiences in your life.
