Pro-Tips from Past + Current Teaching Assistants


  • Travel as much as you can.
  • Even though the train station is difficult to get to without a car, you can go to Saint-Étienne on the weekends or just for the day to get a break from small town life. If needed, you can ask your colleagues for a ride to the station.
  • Enjoy the scenery.
  • Try and make friends by becoming a "regular" at a café or restaurant.
  • The teachers are very considerate, friendly, and sympathetic - and they will help you with whatever you need. Sometimes, the close relationships formed with your colleagues is the best part about living in a small town.
