Teaching adults in France

Hi there,
my first post to your site - kudos on the design.
I've been teaching now for three plus years and was wondering, if I came to France, is there much opportunity for teaching English to young/adults?  Personally I would have thought it would mainly be to children up to college age and maybe some business courses for international companies.
The reason I ask, I taught kids in Greece, kids in China for a year, and for the last year and a half I've successfully migrated to teachin adults... and to tell the truth I don't want to go back!  I love kids, but I teach with energy... and I find that my energy runs low after kids class.
I would love to experience France for a long space of time, not just the usual 2 weeks vacation... can anyone give me any suggestions?
Thanks in advance


Thanks for the info Colonel sir!
I'm from England... the not so sunny city of Sheffield.
Business English - I've done a lot of it, but don't really enjoy it... unless my learners want to learn, not 'have to learn to get more money'.
'Having' to learn can be motivation enough, but I find that most people in Chinese business classes are only doing it because it's a part of their contract.
lol, not a colonel of course. or a sir ;)

If you're British that's a different matter. Since you're an EU citizen, I'm sure there's plenty of opportunities open for you (maybe even a college position, although don't quote me on that.)
