    "I am French and have been living in England for 6 years, 2 years ago I successfully completed my Trinity college certificate in TESOL with a grade B. Since then I haven't been able to get a job because most employers require native speakers only, I now wish to move to Tuscany in Italy but find it very difficult to find a job. Most people say that I sound English and hardly have a foreign accent. Is it possible for me to ever get a chance to teach ? "
