My husband and I had an amazing time at our French immersion program at the Coeur de France School. The instructors were fantastic and really helped us become more proficient in the language. After a rough start on day 1, where I was overwhelmed with the level of the class, they put together a more basic class with one other student and provided instruction more to our level. They wanted to assure that I had a great experience while at the school, and I did. In addition, the accommodations were excellent, and located in the same building as the school. We had a nice roomy flat with a full kitchen. We were able to walk around town to get cheese, baguettes, meats, and wine to bring back to our room for food. Plus there were excellent restaurants within walking distance. Also we enjoyed meeting the other students at the school, and had two people in the program that live 15 minutes from our house back in the US. The excursions during our free time were great as well and well worth the nominal additional cost. We really enjoyed the cooking class we had in our flat and eating together with our fellow students. I would highly recommend the program. The only thing that I regret is not staying another week to really lock in the language. Next trip I would like to do two weeks.

What could be better than an experience of learning and growth in a beautiful place, among kind, smart people? I returned home refreshed, energized and empowered with my new French-speaking skills! I hope the return very soon.

A friend and I spent 2 weeks at Coeur de France in April 2018 and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. I met a lot of nice people there who share my passion for French language and lifestyle. The school is expertly run and the faculty are wonderful. Students work hard but in a relaxed environment where much progress is made in a short amount of time. I would highly recommend this program.

Great choice for a personable & personal language-learning experience. I took 2 years of French in high school, so was slightly more than a true beginner; class was paced, structured to our level; only 2 people in our group, so literally one-to-one in a group class. Be prepared to work hard. School strategy is to speak only French to students & students are expected to be in
