    I graduated in 2013 and have been working for PGL in France since January 2014! I've loved my seasons with them, I've worked 4 different job roles at 3 different centres. It's a really good way to meet new people, live in France for cheap (accommodation and food is part of your contract) and move around the country. 

    Out of the job roles I have worked in, I think that admin is the best role for making the most of your language skills and you learn really varied vocab. Usually the admin is the only French speaker on centre so you have plenty of opportunities to use your French. 

    If you want any more info let me know!

    I'm Currently working for PGL in northern france and have been doing it since 2007, If you are looking for language based jobs northern france is the way to go as there is a role called Tour leader and you will be able to get off site with a group and use your French to both help them and also to help yourself improve they also have a product that is called language detectives that means you teach the French to the guests in a class room each morning for a little bit and then they get to use there French they learnt from you off site. Its a amazing company and great locations. Give them a email or a ring and they can tell you more. www,pgl.co.uk

    I worked for PGL for 2 years in Northern France in 2005-2006 and again in the UK for 4 years from 2010-2014. My role in France was as a Tour Leader at Chateau de Grande Romaine where you need to be a French speaker, and take groups of school children I tours of Paris and the surrounding area, so a role like that would suit you perfectly. It was the best time of my life and I would thoroughly recommend it! You could also work at Chateau de Tetre doing a similar language role or at Chateau d'Ebblinghem where you can take tours of the historic areas of Belgium as you're close to the border (I also did that for a few months in 2010). Any further questions just ask!
