In 1992, the Prométour Group launched its first customized group travel program for students and their teachers. In the years since, the Prométour Group has expanded to offices in Canada, France, Spain, and the United States. The Prométour Group’s newest member, Forum by Prométour, has offices in Málaga, Spain and San Diego, California, and specializes in creating unique, tailor-made programs for language teachers and their students.
The word “forum” derives from the Latin for ‘what is out of doors’ and is defined as “a meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged” (Oxford Dictionary). At Forum, we have adapted this concept to the experience of learning a language, by helping school groups from around the world connect, exchange, discover, and improve their language skills.
The founders of Prométour, Sébastien Letailleur, Stanislas Myszkowski, and Xavier Buisson were childhood friends in Paris. They founded Prométour in Montréal in 1992 and continue to lead the company today from Montréal, Málaga/San Diego, and Paris, respectively.
