Is there a difference between Bob being a teacher who is French and Bob being a teacher who teaches French?

bingav,

Yes, there is. If we follow Formal Standard Arabic, it will be:

1) "Bob being a teacher who is French":

بُوْبٌ مُعَلِّمٌ فَرَنْسِيٌّ

"buub(un) mu3allim(un) faransiyy(un)."

2) "Bob being a teacher who teaches French":

بُوْبٌ مُعَلِّمُ لُغَةٍ فَرَنْسِيَّةٍ

"buub(un) mu3allim(u) lugha(tin) faransiyya(tin)."
