I wonder if the French Institute takes people qui ne peut pas parler Francais avec “une maîtrise parfaite” mais qui peut at least lire le plus de le job listing. And also who don’t have teaching credentials.  Basically, I could be like “I speak shitty French, but I used to be fluent. And I had to run most of this cover letter through Google translate.”  Hmm. I’ll probably have better luck with the Tall Model gig.
