Description

Learn French in Tours,enjoy your French learning vacation in the "Le Jardin de la France" ("The Garden of France") due to it's many parks.

The city is famous for its medieval district (le Vieux Tours) where you will see well preserved half-timbered buildings and it also offers a bustling square. It is also home to a beautiful cathedral with garden (tree planted by Napoleon) and the Fran├žois Rabelais University.

The inhabitants of Tours (Les Tourangeaux) are renowned for speaking the "purest" form of French in the entire country. The pronunciation of Touraine is widely regarded as the most standard pronunciation of the French language, devoid of any perceived accent (unlike that of most other regions of France, including Paris). Gregory of Tours wrote in the 6th century that some people in this area could still speak Gaulish.

Located in the center of city in the pedestrian street area, our school is a beautiful renovated 18th century stone building with large classrooms and rooftop terrace.
