THE SPEAKING-AGENCY VISION
Speaking - Agency is a company created in 2009 by 2 young founders: Antoine Gentil & Julien Viaud. With their respective experiences abroad (USA, Canada), the 2 young entrepreneurs realized that the best way to learn a language is to immerse oneself in it from a very young age (by rubbing natives whose mother tongue is the one you want to learn). From this idea: the concept of Speaking-Agency was born.
Its goal is to allow everyone (children, adults, teenagers) to enjoy language immersion without having to travel abroad!

5 reasons to teach English in Paris
Find below the testimony of Toby Bryant (UK), who worked for Speaking-Agency as an English teacher in the French capital.
#1 Meet a French family
Speaking-Agency offered me a great way to experience what Parisian life is like for French families. Just by speaking English, there were families who wanted to welcome me into their lives. Through teaching English, I learnt how family relations work, what activities they like to do and the little traditions that made their daily lives (culinary or social).
#2 Give the gift of language
It is not just a cliché – you really do feel like you are opening opportunities for kids.
#3 Meet an international community
The company employs thousands of foreign-language speakers across the country and as an employee, there are plenty of chances to socialize and make new friends. They can be students or workers from different countries all over the world. We're all world's citizens after all!
#4 It helps you to live in Paris
Having a source of income can help fund social activities whilst any other loans or funds can cover living expenses.
#5 You learn new skills
I have definitely improved my communication: making yourself understood by a French-speaking child can be challenging at first. Elsewhere, I became a more dedicated individual having persisted when the student was struggling.
