Eine geniale Zeit in Tours
Im Juli 2015 ging ich für drei Wochen nach Tours, um an der Sprachschule CLE Französisch zu lernen. Es war eine unvergessliche Zeit. Man lernt intensiv in kleinen Klassen, die Lehrer sind sehr kompetent – und vor allem kommt die gute Laune nicht zu kurz: es gibt immer viel zu lachen. Man lernt viel über Land und Leute, was das Verständnis für die Sprache noch erhöht. Das Angebot der Schule wird abgerundet durch Ausflüge in die Umgebung – es finden sich immer Mitschüler, die auch per Bahn oder Fahrrad das Loire-Tal erkunden wollen. Ich würde jederzeit wieder CLE in Tours besuchen.

Fantastic French School in Tours
Had a wonderful time at CLE in Tours. The Directrice, Isabelle, is very warm and welcoming, and the teachers are all very passionate and fun to learn from. I spent 5 weeks at the school with one of their amazing Host Families and will treasure my memories forever.

By far the best
I spent four weeks at CLE in Tours in May / June 2015. They were by far the best four weeks of an entire year of intensive french lessons conducted at the British Defence Academy and the Univeristy of Westminster.
Beyond the small class sizes, the tightly controlled levels (streaming) by ability from day one, and the immersion generated by living with a french family, the CLE experience is out of this world. Our teachers put so much effort into every single lesson, with materials from literally the previous day's news or media on a regular basis. All of that run alongside the workshops which were varied and interesting, fun and engaging.
Then just when you thought you might get five minutes off, the school teaching staff were joining us for lunch and for visits around the town (which is perfect in size and shape) or further afield. Isabelle the directrice routinely joins in visits to the chateaus and holds the cycling challenge cup for anyone feeling a little sporty who might venture along the Loire.
I would go back in a heartbeat and I would recommend CLE to anyone considering learning french at any level, age, and for any period. The experience was simply fabulous.
A few months on I am now able to fully participate in the french Ecole de Guerre, largely thanks to CLE.

After spending four weeks in June at CLE located in Tours, France for a French immersion language course, I have found that among the other (FLE) language schools which I had attended in other cities of France, as well as in Québec, this one in Tours is superior. This city is conveniently reachable by train from Paris' Charles DeGaulle airport. The director and all the teachers are specialist in teaching French to the foreigners, they are very attentive to the students' needs -- scholastic, health, as well as social. What is taught in the morning classes is put into practice immediately. I liked the afternoon "atelier" sessions where various current topics were discussed, and the participation of the fellow classmates (of various professional backgrounds) who unselfishly shared their actual experience/knowledge of the topic enhanced not only the discussion but also had broadened my own viewpoint on the subject being discussed. The classes are small, maximum is seven students, we get acquainted and shared our learning very quickly. The media lab was available to everyone, to practice listening and oral comprehension.
Tours is a smaller and less complex city, for a person who has very little sense of directions, getting lost in Tours did not become too frightening. My host family (ma famille d'accueil) was very kind and attentive to me, they gave me a nice and quiet room, good French food, invited me to join them on some of their activities and outings. The region is beautiful, there is a lot of history and a lot of natural beauty. The parks and the gardens are beautiful, one could spend days just visiting the chateaux and their park like grounds. It was a special treat for me to go to the Cathedral St. Gatien to listen to their pipe organ, and attend the children's choir in concert at St. Julien le Pauvre Church. These children all sang like professionals. Weather-wise, June is a good month, not too cold, not too hot, definitely stay for the annual Music Feast (Fête de la Musique) where one hears and dances to free live band performances throughout the city from noon to late night.
I definitely recommend the school, CLE and the city, Tours to everyone who is seriously interested in learning French or wants to travel with a purpose.

Had an awesome time at CLE, the staff and the teachers were so nice, concerned and very helpful. Recommend this to everyone who really wants to learn a language, speak a lot and get to know France and its beautiful culture. Had an awesome host family who did everything for me, they accepted me as their own. Teachers made class fun and exciting, classes were small with awesome classmates. My highlight was the canoe trip on the Loire, it was so much fun!
Merci à Isabelle et à tous qui ont fait mon séjour ici si mémorable. Tours est vraiment une jolie ville avec des jolis et gentils personnes!

Hoping to go back next year!
I had a fantastic 2 week stay in Tours studying at CLE. Isabelle was so kind and made every student feel so welcome and I particularly enjoyed the bike rides in the afternoons along the Loire! The course itself exceeded my expectations and I was lucky enough to have Marlene as my teacher who was brilliant. My host family were like my own family and I was in tears when I left them. Don't hesitate to spend at least 2 weeks here, you will want to stay for longer and to return!

Mon séjour linguistique à CLE
A truly phenomenal experience! The energetic environment with enthusiastic teachers kept my motivation going. The creative teaching method was engaging - each day provided a challenging and unique learning focus. Classes had a good range of ages with maximum 7 students in each class. I enjoyed the afternoon workshops especially those conducted by Gaëlle and David.
My wonderful host family shared their local culture and gastronomy from the hospitality of their traditional French home. I enjoyed going out with them and their friends. The conversational exposure to the native French was a great way to immerse myself.
Learning a new language is difficult and at times frustrating. CLE provides a strong foundation for the opportunity to learn French in a unique cultural environment. Excursions and activities organised by the school enhance the learning programme.
Besides learning French, there is the opportunity to make new friends and experience daily life in a historic French town. I am very grateful to Isabelle (our principal) and Ludivine (my class teacher) for their commitment and dedication to teaching - alas I am starting to enjoy reading in French! I departed with fond memories and feeling more confident in speaking 'la langue de Molière'. The entire experience was an absolute pleasure and I look forward to returning to CLE.

IDEAL WAY TO LEARN, GREAT LIFE EXPERIENCE
After my month of avril at CLE in Tours, I hated to go home! The school is brilliantly organized to provide intense French training in a way that really works: everything you learn is immediately applied in discussions, readings, films, news clips. And living in Tours, in an apartment near CLE as I did, makes the experience complete. I simply existed in French, absorbing the language and culture with each breath. And with each step I took in this beautiful old city! Tours is ideally situated to let one enjoy the incredible richness of the Loire Valley -history, food, art, beauty, nature - it's all here. Don't hesitate - choose CLE as your language learning venue! Christine F.

Eintauchen in die französische Kultur und Sprache
Zwei Wochen in der Sprachschule CLE in Tours mit Aufenthalt in einer Gastfamilie haben mir ein Eintauchen in die französische Kultur und Sprache ermöglicht, das ich zuvor nicht für möglich geglaubt hätte. Die familiäre Atmosphäre an der überschaubaren Schule, die motivierten und engagierten Lehrerinnen, der Kontakt und der Austausch mit anderen Studenten und die Diskussionen in der Gastfamilie haben mir nicht nur das Üben der französischen Sprache ermöglicht sondern mir auch Einblick in den Alltag gegeben und mein Verständnis für die französische Kultur erhöht. Die helle und lebendige Stadt Tours mit ihren Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Gaststätten, die herrliche Loirelandschaft mit ihren Schlössern und weiteren kulturellen Höhepunkten sowie die generelle Freundlichkeit der Einwohner der Touraine haben mich schwer beeindruckt! Es waren perfekte Ferien, bzw. ein toller Sprachaufenthalt, den ich jederzeit wiederholen würde!

I just returned from a month long intensive course at Cle tours. What a charming city and I can't say enough about the language program there. We met in small groups, 5-7 students at the same level of proficiency from 9-12:15 each day. We did grammar, oral comprehension and gave reports on current events, political satire, and movies. On Tuesdays and Thursday's we met again in the afternoon for "ateliers" where we played games, did oral comprehension, and learned about French culture. These went from 1:30-4:15. Then on Monday and Wednesday had private lessons from 1:45-3:15. The private lessons consisted of talking, oral comprehension, grammar, whatever you wanted to work on. The group I was with was fantastic. We were all adults mostly working on our French for pleasure. We were two Americans, three Swiss, and one Japanese. I rented an apartment around the corner from the institute which I found quite convenient. There was some homework, but not so much that I didn't have time to visit the chateaux of the Loire valley on the weekends. I can't wait to go back next year!

AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE
As a result of the great reviews I read here, I spent all month of November 2014 in CLE. The academy is placed within the old centre of Tours (beautiful) and I must say it lives up to its reputation, as from the very first moment you feel a warm welcome from both teachers and students. Isabelle (la directrice) takes care of you and asks always for feedback with a smile on her face. Teachers are great and classes are small size. There is a great atmosphere from the mixture of nationalities and ages of the students, who at the same time take very seriously the french immersion – giving the experience a great cultural enrichment. I also signed up for a host family and, after taking into account my needs, they found one excellent, making the experience unforgettable!
My french has strongly improved and I can’t help but recommend this experience to anyone willing to give their french a boost! I will definitely come back!

Best Of Both Worlds
I have just finished a wonderful 3 months in Tours at CLE.Not only did my French come on enormously but I had great fun. The teachers are wonderful and very informative. The town of Tours has a lot to offer and for me spending 3 months at school in Tours was definitely the Best Of Both Worlds!!
Would I go back? You bet! Summer 2015 is already earmarked for my return!

Better than Uni
My study at CLE was very short lived, unfortunately, as I was on a Foreign University Exchange and only had one week holiday, which I chose to use for further study. Yes, I'm a language nerd! Sad for me, but great for those of you ready to improve your French, I found that I learned more in one week at CLE Tours, than in 4 months at Uni. The teachers are kind, happy and knowledgable and have the happy knack of pin-pointing your needs and filling them. Just do it. You will be glad you did.

My study with CLE was short (2 weeks) but it has helped me a lot! It was certainly beyond my expectation of regular language course. Here’s why…
1. I liked the idea that CLE place students of the same level in the same class, yet CLE also offers workshops where students from different levels can mix. Of course, they would suggest which workshop is more suitable for which level.
2. The course is well balanced, not only grammar but also cultural relevance and current usages. This, in particular, extended my vocabulary a lot.
3. The teachers are very professional and they really helped me figure out which area could use a bit extra work.
4. Last but not least, I really appreciate the small class size (max. 7 students, if I’m not mistaken). This really allows us to practice, practice and practice.
If you *seriously* want to improve your French, CLE is THE school!

Ne pas hésiter
Attending courses can sometimes be daunting when you've gone beyond your school days! We all need a little courage sometimes to go into the unknown. So if you are debating about this course in the slightest - just take the step and go for it. I am glad that I did.
For this course has many truly welcoming positives:
the small group sizes (max 7); mix of ages (beyond teen agers but not all OAP's !); friendly, enthusiastic staff; central location; activity lessons in the afternoon (baking, games etc) and Isabelle's personal interest in finding suitable accommodation for you.
In addition I found Tours to be a great, relaxed city, beautiful architecture, old square with restaurants etc and a city which is easy to walk around and very cycle friendly.
I aim to goo back - next time I would stay with a host family as everyone who did had very good words to say about them.

Ecole CLE - Tours: OUTSTANDING!
I have just completed 4 weeks immersion at CLE and cannot speak more highly of my experience there.
The pace, the focus, the attention to detail (depending on an individual's needs) was truly excellent. Everyone brought different levels of competence to the class - for instance, some could speak fluently, but were weaker at grammar (or vice versa). Our teacher always focused her questioning on the right person. On top of this, the lessons were fun and left us wanting to do our best for ourselves and for her. Sometimes the homework seemed a lot, but it was never overwhelming. I enjoyed the challenge of completing it whilst also maintaining a healthy social life! I could not speak more highly of our teacher: dedicated, professional, creative and fun: truly outstanding. Thank you CLE!
My one-on-one teacher was a complete joy to be taught by and the hour just flew by always. She was excellent at correcting me without 'stifling' my enthusiasm. 10/10!
The school is very well run and the Directrice is always looking for ways to further improve the detail. She regularly asks for student feedback which is often acted upon, and the staff clearly enjoy working as a part of her team.

Ich kann nur etwas aussetzen an meinem Sprachaufenthalt, nämlich dass ich nur 1 Woche in Tours war!
Die CLE unterscheidet sich in der Grüsse zu anderen Schulen: Sie ist klein, so dass man fast alle Schüler kennt und pro Klasse hat es maximal 7 Schüler. Dies trägt einerseits zum effektiven Lernen und andererseits zur familiären Atmosphäre bei. Zudem ist das Durchschnittsalter 30. Besonders gibt aber die Herzlichkeit von Isabelle und den Lehrern der CLE den speziellen Touch. Dank ihres Engagements wie auch Interessen am Kontakt mit den Schülern fühlte ich mich vom ersten Moment an wohl an der Schule.
Zudem ist die CLE perfekt in der Altstadt von Tour gelegen, alles liegt in Gehdistanz; ob die Place Plumerau, la Guinguette, die Geschäfte oder die Loire.
Der Schulunterricht am Morgen ist strukturiert aufgebaut und fokussiert stark auf das Schulbuch. Die Ateliers und Privatstunden am Nachmittag lassen mehr Freiraum für Diskussionen zu.

UNFORGETTABLE and INSPIRING
I have just completed a wonderful 3 weeks at CLE in Tours.
I've toyed around trying to learn French for many years and recent retirement gave me the chance to pursue an intensive course which has done wonders for my confidence in speaking the language.
I did lots of research to find the 'right' school for me and CLE easily met all my expectations. LA Directrice Isabelle and her excellent team cannot be complimented highly enough on both the quality of the teaching and the supportive and welcoming atmosphere in which students and staff operate.
Two other points that impressed me about CLE (1) its 'smaller classes' approach whereby students can integrate closely with teachers and fellow students - no danger of being lost or forgotten in large classes and (2) the wide ranging age mix of students.
CLE also made excellent arrangements for me to live with a local family - a lovely experience that added to the overall pleasure of my trip to Tours
I cannot recall enjoying school so much and have no hesitation in recommending CLE if you are minded to learn or improve your French.

Angenehmes Lernen in entspannter Atmosphäre
Wir waren zwei Wochen bei einem Intensiv-Sprachkurs in der Sprachschule CLE in Tours und ich kann diese Schule nur weiter empfehlen. Engagierte und kompetente Lehrkräfte, kleine Lerngruppen, abwechslungsreicher Unterricht und eine sehr angenehme Atmosphäre machten die zwei Wochen zu einer tollen Zeit. Ich konnte meine mündliche Ausdrucksfähigkeit deutlich verbessern und die Scheu zu sprechen komplett ablegen. Ich kann CLE uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
