Opportunities for Teaching using French
Teaching English in France!
For decades, literally dozens of IWU graduates who have majored or minored in French & Francophone Studies have
participated in the French Government's "Teaching Assistant Program in France" (TAPIF)
sponsored through the French Embassy and the French Ministry of Education. The program
pays students a modest monthly stipend to assist English teachers in secondary school
classrooms for a period of 7 months—in locales ranging from Paris, to Provence, to
Martinique! Although competition is difficult (with less than 50% of the total number
of applicants accepted), IWU applicants have a
100% acceptance rate
history in this teaching program! Applications are typically available in mid-October,
with a due date some time in early January. For more information, please visit the
French Cultural Services website.
