German teachers are paid nearly twice as much as their French counterparts. Why ? Explanations with an extract from the latest “We Europeans”, broadcast on Sunday January 23 at 10:40 a.m.

In Germany, the average salary of a beginning teacher is 6,300 euros gross per month. But that requires some quid pro quos. To realize this, just follow Julia’s day.

Like all teachers across the Rhine, she teaches two disciplines: it begins with a course in German literature, then continues an hour later with a French course.

German teacher, and French teacher, and on six different levels. In Germany, colleges and high schools are merged. Teachers must prepare courses from the fifth to the final year. “I have masters in both subjects to be able to teach them. I give a total of 26 lessons a week. It’s dense, we couldn’t do more than we do, it’s already limited”, analyzes the teacher.
