Centre Linguistique pour Etrangers

Intensive and personalised instruction

Upon arrival at CLE you will receive a file containing further information about the school and your stay in Tours. One of our teachers will take you on a guided visit of the school and will show you the literature, multimedia and other study aids available to you as a student. You will also receive a student card enabling you to benefit from various reductions in numerous museums, cinemas and bookshops, etc. You will be given a written and oral placement test to evaluate your abilities. This will enable us to place you in a class that corresponds to your level. We also take the time to discuss together your motivation, expectations and special interests.

Students attend classes for 20 hours per week, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. until 12.15 p.m., as well as Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, from 1.45 p.m. until 4.30 p.m. NB: this changes in July and August to take advantage of the warm weather. Monday - Friday: 9 a.m. to 12.45 p.m. plus one afternoon: 2 p.m. to 4.45 p.m. Students enjoy a coffee break together in the morning.

In a class of no more than 7 students you will feel confident and at ease. Your oral participation is encouraged by the relaxed and cordial ambiance. At elementary and intermediate levels your progress is closely monitored and tested. With the help of your teacher you will be able to analyse your individual needs and progression throughout the course of study.


The ideal way to discover France and its people is to live with a local family and to share their way of life. Even if your level of French is limited, chatting at the family dinner table remains one of the best ways of improving your comprehension and vocabulary.
You also discover the French mentality and of course the famous French cuisine.

Apartment or studio
We can make a reservation for a fully equipped and comfortable studio or one-bedroom apartment (telephone, television, etc.). Weekly maid and linen service is included. Laundry facilities are also available. All studios and apartments are located in the centre of Tours within walking distance of CLE.

Bed and breakfast in a château
For an exceptional stay, we can reserve a room in a small private château. You will be treated as a house-guest, in the intimacy and elegance of an exquisite residence. NB: you will need your own transport if you opt for this type of accommodation.
