Institut Francophonie, Nantes, France


Nantes has lots to offer anyone wanting to learn more about the town and Institut Francophonie absorbs this into its courses. With nearly 30 years of experience teaching the French language, Institut Francophonie really understands what helps to form a deep memory of a language and has designed its courses to reflect this. The school offers a range of package programmes, which combine learning the French language with one of the key features of the city including Véritable Petit Beurre", the castle, the mechanical artwork, Jules Verne, Jacques Demy and the River Loire. It is not surprising that a vast nationality mix of students visit the school to learn more of both the French language and the city of Nantes. ">

Institut Francophonie

The language school Institut Francophonie was founded in Nantes, France in 1991. Right in the centre of the historical city of Nantes, lies the school Institut Francophonie. Nantes is to the North West of France in the region of Brittany, close to the Bay of Biscay and home to the Medieval Castle of the Dukes of Brittany. This structure dates back to the medieval period, although it has experienced extensive restoration, and was a pivot point not just within the city but also for the whole of Brittany. Institut Francophonie is a 10 minute walk from the Medieval castle in the up and coming neighbourhood of Madeleine-Champ de Mars, a mixture of modern architecture and traditional streets. Along with the jaw dropping castle, Nantes has some other interesting characteristics and historical notifications. Looking for something different, then look no further than the Machines of the Isle of Nantes, a museum created by two local artists to project fantasy and surrealism into the city. The museum is around a 25 minute walk from the school, along the River Loire, and the river itself is a noteworthy feature in the history of the city.



The author of “Around the world in eighty days”, Jules Verne, was born in the city and there is a museum detailing his works. The French director, lyricist, and screenwriter, Jacques Demy, was born in a town not far from Nantes and his childhood fascination and love for the town can be seen throughout his films. France is renowned for its food and Nantes has many local restaurants for you to tease your pallet. However, the most prominent culinary delight to the region is the shortbread biscuit, known as “Véritable Petit Beurre" whose origins are in Nantes.
