The French immersion program is fun and very well done. The village is perfect for the experience, charming and so French. The shops are friendly and the storekeepers are wonderful...always speaking French, and so helpful. The school provides a very good environment...class with those of your own ability, and teachers who are encouraging and do not give in to speaking... More

Having traveled for many years to an artisan folk school in the mountains of N.C., I knew how wonderful it could be to live and learn in a warmly caring community of committed teachers and students. I did not know that in later years, I would again experience such incomparable joy in a small hilltop village in France. After my... More

The school is located in an historic building in a medieval village in the Loire valley. Although we had spent two years studying French at our local community college, our practical skills were...

What an amazing experience I had at this language school in Sancerre. Starting with the welcome on our arrival on the Saturday evening, we were given an overview of local facilities and attractions before being shown to our various apartments. My apartment Balzac was lovely, having been recently renovated; it was comfortable and could easily accommodate a couple. The staff... More

Bonjour Ruth, Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your experience at Coeur de France! I'm sorry that you found your taxi fare for your return to the train station rather expensive. As you know we advise students that the cost is about 40 euros (which can be shared with others in the taxi), but it's true that... More

I just spent two weeks at the Coeur de France school in order to sharpen my French speaking and comprehension skills. Two weeks was the perfect amount of time: at the end of my week-1 group class I could identify specific areas to work on, and the school was flexible enough to allow me to get in a few one-on-one...

Bonjour, Thanks for your feedback. I agree, 2 weeks is a good length of time for most people. The first week is useful to settle down and get used to studying French everyday and being immersed in a French-only world. The second week is typically when students start to see themselves really improving quickly. Marianne and I are happy that... More
