We took a 5 day class as a family here. The class was tailored to our varying depth of knowledge and a great cultural experience. There are short walks though the quaint town to the bakery and such to practice. Most of the town merchants have a lot of patience for the students and it is easier to get over... More

This program seemed perfectly designed for me. As I hoped, the location in a small village offered a minimum of distractions from the task at hand in a beautiful setting. The French instruction was delivered by incredibly skilled and talented instructors at a pace that was very challenging for me but not impossible. The instructors were amazingly kind, encouraging and... More

Yes, it was winter and cold, but the atmosphere inside the classroom was warm, welcoming, and very stimulating. Marianne was our instructor for two weeks and she did an amazing job. She demonstrated the patience and instructional skill... More

First, I was so pleased to find myself among learners and improvers of a mixed age range. My sole aim for the week was to kick start my aspiration and fading ability to speak passable French. In that respect, Cœur de France hit the target. I particularly liked the variable structure of the course and the flexible programme which allowed... More
