Jean: "My one on one class was perfect for me since my level of expertise is very uneven due to the fact that I have studied it on my own. Both teachers were excellent and very knowledgeable about the language, as well as flexible with regard to meeting times and places. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I will definitely recommend this school to friends and hope to be back in the future myself. "

What students liked about Tours Langues, Tours
I chose Tours Langues particularly because it is located in a city where English is not commonly utilized. I also chose this school because of its small size; there were about a dozen students or so while I was there, and my classes ranged from 2 - 7 students, so I certainly was able to get attention and assistance from the teachers.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Students should certainly visit the nearby castles during the weekend. That was a highlight of my stay in Tours.
Other comments: I improved my French a lot at Tours Langues and would definitely recommend this school!
The teachers were great and provided very good explanations in French. They cater to your strengths and weaknesses and they really care about your development in the language. All the teachers were very friendly with great personalities and they would make jokes throughout the lessons so it was never boring.

EMILIE!!! The small class was great. The school had a very home-like atmosphere. It was more than "just a school." Emilie is a very talented teacher who knows how to get a point across through visuals. You have a gem in her!
