What our students said about Tours

Rating: 5/5


Tours is a little bigger and busier than I expected, but many beautiful old buildings and lovely places to sit and have a drink or a coffee. Don't miss the Botanic Gardens!


Rating: 4/5


Tours is a nice sized city, not too big, not too small. Easy to get around by foot.


Rating: 5/5


Tours is great but can be a bit loud at times in the center.

Small school, small courses. Home stay was ideal: warm and friendly family. It was also close to the train station so we could take easy day trips.
The only down side was that the numerous female Asian students often had strong accents and spoke very quietly and timidly, if at all.

The building is a lovely old rickety place in an excellent location. The constraints imposed by the building mean that more usual modern facilities are not easy to provide. I personally would not want it any other way, but I can imagine some students might find it unusual. The staff went a very long way to tailor our course to our needs - first class. They were without exception charming, helpful and focused. We loved it. There was one lack of communication that spoiled an otherwise perfect time: the details of the trip arranged for the final afternoon were not revealed to us until the day before, and we had already visited the places the trip was planned for. A pity, but nothing much to worry about.

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.
The professors at the school were very personable.

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.
I improved my French a lot at Tours Langues and would definitely recommend this school!

Excellent teachers, enthusiastic and engaging. Loads of lovely places to enjoy lunch or a snack within a stone's throw. Lots to see in the area, chateaux, aplenty. Tours itself is beautiful.
Their wifi is not good. The teachers even had difficulties with it. I frankly couldn't get my iPad to stay on, so did not rely on it at all.
