Discover a great destination — Paris, a city that is many different things to different people. Well informed, eloquent and oh-so-romantic—the French capital is the Number 1 tourist destination in the world with 45 million tourists annually.
Paris has used up all superlatives that could possibly be applied to any city. Its famous landmarks have been described countless times in books and in movies; however, what writers and film producers have been unable to express is the grandness and even the magic this city has.
Paris probably has more famous sights than any other city in the world. The media have created a stereotype picture of intellectuals discussing weighty matters in cafés, of lovers walking along the Seine, of naughty nightclub revues, and of rude French people who avoid speaking English. And if you look hard enough, you can probably find all of those. As a result, first-time visitors often arrive in the French capital with all sorts of expectations.
Another approach is to set aside the preconceptions of Paris and to explore the city’s beautiful avenues and forgotten backstreets as if the tip of the Eiffel Tower or the spire of Notre Dame wasn’t about to pop into view at any moment. You’ll soon discover (as so many others before you have) that a stay in this charming city is delightful almost everywhere, at any time of the year.
The summer in Paris is usually warm and pleasant with average temperatures between 15 and 25°C, and a fair amount of sunshine. Each year, however, there are a couple of days where the temperature rises above 32 °C (90 °F). Spring and autumn have, on average, mild days and fresh nights, but are changing and unstable. Surprisingly warm or cool weather happens frequently in both seasons. In winter, sunshine is scarce; days are cool but generally above freezing with temperatures around 7°C. Snowfall is rare, but the city sometimes sees light snow or flurries with or without accumulation. Rain falls throughout the year, and although Paris is not a very rainy city, it is known for heavy sudden showers.
Taking a TESOL course in Paris, France
In the season of giving, TEFL Paris is reducing the balance payment (final course fees) for the Paris TEFL course to 900 euros. Hopefully, this will be beneficial for many people.
ABOUT THE SCHOOL
The TEFL course takes place in the heart of the city in walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. Everything Paris is so famous for is right at their finger tips: great shopping, elegant dining, cozy cafes, bars, cabaret shows and discotheques in which you can dance till dawn together with beautiful people. Our center helps you find these places. For all those who like it quiet, Paris offers tranquil moments in world-famous museums and in many of their beautiful parks and gardens.
Accommodated in a beautifully maintained, classical building, the college features large, modern classrooms equipped with all those amenities TEFL students need to have a comfortable learning experience. Besides access to a copy machine and a printer, our students may also use wireless Internet with laptop computers.
The EFL/ESL students they teach are locals or visitors to Paris who come from all parts of the world.
It’s a great starting place to look for jobs in Europe.
And the time in the beautiful French capital is rounded up with the opportunity to learn French.
