Teaching Assistant Program in France ▾
Expand your horizons and share your language and culture with French students

Are you ready to expand your horizons and share your language and culture with French students?

The Teaching Assistant Program in France offers you the opportunity to work in France for 7 months, teaching English to French students of all ages. Each year, over 1,100 American citizens and permanent residents teach in public schools across all regions of metropolitan France and in the overseas departments of France such as French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Réunion. The American cohort is part of the larger Assistants de langue en France program, which recruits 4,500 young educators from 60 countries to teach 15 languages annually in France. The Assistants de langue en France program is managed by the CIEP, the Centre international d'études pédagogiques. 

Visit our Prospective Applicants section to find out how you can gain valuable teaching experience, improve your language skills, and experience French culture first-hand through the Teaching Assistant Program in France.

Find answers to many of your potential questions on our FAQs page in the Prospective Applicants section

Read first-hand accounts from current and former assistants in the Testimonials section.


What happens after TAPIF? 

After a year in France, Teaching Assistants pursue global careers in education, international business, public health, international policy and development, arts and culture administration, among other fields.

TAPIF Alumni are regularly recruited by top graduate schools preparing the next generation of global professionals. These schools recognize the value of language proficiency and intercultural competency, cornerstones of TAPIF.

TAPIF Alumni Scholarships support and encourage former teaching assistants to pursue gradate studies at select U.S. universities, including New York University, the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, the University of Wisconsin - Madison, the University of Mississippi, and the University of Minnesota.
