The garden city of Tours is strongly influenced by its natural space, green heritage and urban landscape. The historic city is nicknamed "Le Petit Paris" and is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The medieval architecture blends perfectly with modern buildings as the city remains close to its historic roots, it is also embracing 21st-century living as well as being a popular University city.
Whilst learning French is, of course, a priority during your stay, during your free leisure time you can experience the culinary delights of Tours, local vineyards, public gardens and medieval architecture. Tours is also famous for its many bridges that cross the river Loire. Our schools organise cultural tours and activities to add to the whole experience during your stay.
Immerse yourself in the French language and culture - create an unforgettable experience!

Varied learning methods. The Institut de Touraine has really helped me to progress in French as I had different teachers and methods of teaching. At the same time, I had relations with people from all over the world, I spoke French with them and learned a lot of new things.
My French has progressed, the best part of the program was the teachers, patient, fun, speaking the great French language, interactive with a student of all nationalities and always with respect. It was a perfect atmosphere to learn.
One of the best summers of my life! I did not know any French and 2 months later I was speaking well!!
Moments I will never forget! I have very good memories of my time spent at the Institut de Touraine. Excellent teachers!
Awesome chance to meet people from around the world!
