This summer, from 1st to 12 July 2024, you can link FLE teaching and cultural tourism in the heart of the Loire Valley and its châteaux, only 1h from Paris.

2 weeks to:

  • Reflect on your educational practices, experimenting new ones and get to grips with new resources;
  • Explore the city of Orléans and the châteaux of the Loire Valley region.
