Speaking-Agency : What we offer our Speakers
In addition to finding a way to finance your stay in Paris, you will join a young company composed of friendly members, all passionate about travel, languages and new cultures.
Speaking-Agency is the brainchild of our two founders Antoine Gentil & Julien Viaud. The aim: to ensure that international and local bilingual profiles can transmit their culture and language on French soil. Our credo is: "learning a language from an early age". Indeed, the sooner you start learning a language, the better you will remember it.
Your role as a speaker will be to pass on your language to one or even more more children.
As a babysitter your role will be to look after the child's well-being in the absence of their parents while talking to them and interacting with them in English to accustom them to the accent and sonority of the words. In your presence, the child will absorb your language like a sponge and make it their own after several days of listening. All means are good to practice English: games, stories, songs, cartoons in VO. The most important thing is for the child to have fun in your presence so that they can progress and have fun learning with you!
If you already have teaching experience, we advise you to you apply for our job offers as a special language teacher at home. Your role will be quite different from what we offer in childcare. As a language teacher, your role will be to have your students do exercises by evaluating their level to offer them activities adapted to their age: reading, conjugation exercises, grammar in a fun way. Indeed, your goal will be to create a connection with your student by seeking one of their interests that could have a close or distant relationship with English or the language you teach. By creating this link your student will have a lot more fun and will enjoy learning a new language with you.
To do this you can do all kinds of activities with the child in order to teach them vocabulary, common expressions, etc. You will have at your disposal an activity kit to help you in your activities with the child (readings, games, songs, etc) so that, no matter if you are beginning as a foreign language specific teacher, or experienced, you won't be short of ideas!
This activity pack, developed especially by Speaking-Agency for its own Speakers, was conceived with the help of two language specialists: Maria Kihlstedt, lecturer at Paris X-CNRS in psycholinguistics & John Herbstritt - specialized in language rhetoric at Berkeley University. In addition, we are always developing new teaching tools thanks to the various feedbacks and experiences of our Speakers that allow us to improve, modify and replace our teaching activities.
To know :
• Speak one or more foreign languages with a mother tongue or current level (European level C1-C2)
• To be 18 years old
• Make a stay of 3-4 months minimum in France
• Have experience in childcare, formally (you have already worked as a contract babysitter) or informal (you have already had the opportunity to keep your little cousin, little neighbor, etc.)
Tell us all the possible experiences you had the opportunity to meet.
The choice to settle in Paris was made in order to be easily accessible to all. It is very easy to get across Paris and the capital is accessible by all means of transport possible (train, metro, car, bus, bike ...). This means that even if you live outside Paris, in the suburbs, it is always possible for you to visit the Speaking-Factory easily.
Doing an activity in Paris is also an opportunity to visit the capital and participate in many events. The city is full of cultural places, places to have fun and to meet new people, including other internationals. Paris is perfect for students. The French capital is extremely lively and there is always something to do.
In addition, Speaking-Agency organizes its own events to promote exchanges between our Speakers. Come meet the Speaking-Agency team during our "Wine & Cheese", our favorite event created to support our friendly atmosphere around two ingredients that represent France so well abroad: wine & cheese!
