Learn French in Tours

At its busiest during the warmer months of the year, students are well advised to book early for the summer programmes. Whilst the average age drops during the summer period, for most of the year the average student age is 35 yrs old, and the Over 50’s are well represented!

The French language school was established in 1985. Located in the heart of the lively historic centre of Tours, in a beautifully renovated, elegant 18 th century building.

CESA Plus Points:

  • Mini group classes (of no more than 7 students per class)
  • Well know for the purity of the local French accent and of course for the local wines
  • The school really appeals to adult language students looking for a French school with character and atmosphere

After just three short weeks study in Tours, I am aware that my French has really improved, my vocab still needs a lot of work but I’m beginning to realise there will ALWAYS be more vocab!  However I was really pleased that my spoken skills and comprehension were markedly better by the end of my course.

I particularly loved the course structure at the college, the small groups, the personal contact and the fact that it was adults studying together
