Czesc Everybody!

Well I'm from Mauritius( island between Africa & Australia)... and I really want to come work and live in Poland.

I speak and write in French and English very well and I've got distinction grades in French for my IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Diploma.

I wanted to know:

1. what are the requirements to become a full-time French teacher in Poland and what the salary usually is for this kind of job?

2. Where to apply for french teaching jobs?

Thanks.

Hi Jason,

given that you are not a native speaker of French, not a graduate and apparently have no training as a teacher, it's going to be very hard for you to get a job here teaching French. I know a guy who runs a language school which offers French, I'll ask him the questions you've posted here and get back to you with the answers.

Oh thanks for the quick reply Harry!!

Well actually I'm a native speaker of French!!! It's my mother-tongue!!! I'm not a graduate but I'm prepared to be one if need be.

And dziekuje in advance for your precious help..

I thought the official language of Mauritius is English and the generally spoken language is Creole. Guess I must be wrong.

To get a work permit you will need to offer something which a Pole can't offer. That will probably mean being a graduate of a French-speaking university. Having some form of teaching qualification will help hugely too.

English is the official language indeed... But everybody commonly speaks French here... You rarely find someone speaking English on the streets!! and creole is for people living in rural parts of the country...

Seems like I'm going to have to graduate finally...I'm already enrolled in a French Bachelor/degree course at the University of Mauritius but I wanted to know if it was really a major requirement to get the work permit...

Anyways you're of great help Harry...Thousand thanks..

There are many schools that teach French here. I was unofficially tested by the French teacher at my school and she is good. She is Polish of course.
