I have just returned from a one week stay at the French immersion school Coeur de France. I attended with my parents and my 2 primary school daughters and we had a wonderful time. First off the classes: I had studied French in the 1980s and although reasonably fluent at that time I had not spoken it since and had... More

Bonjour ! Thank you for your review of Coeur de France Ecole de Langues. You may find i interesting to know that for each private class (such as Family or One to One tutorials), we carefully review the student(s) registration information and select the staff teacher who we believe is best suited to teach to the needs of that family...

This is an egregiously overdue review of the amazingly wonderful experience a good friend and I had at Coeur de France language school the summer of 2012. Everything about Coeur de France was professional and welcoming. My friend and I took a two-week advanced beginner class with the co-owner, Marianne. Marianne, is one of the best teachers I have had... More

Bonjour ! Marianne and I are delighted that you enjoyed your classes and the cultural excursions at Coeur de France. It's a pleasure knowing that you spent your free time exploring the village of Sancerre, getting to meet locals and really living like one of us! As many students say, Sancerre is almost an extension of our "campus" and our... More

I recently finished two weeks at the school. Let me start with the good points. For context, I spoke some French prior to arriving and was aiming to improve my speaking, listening, and reading. I didn't care much about writing. So the good points: 1. Sancerre is a beautiful, quant little village located along the Loire. I really felt that... More

I recently finished a 2-week stay (May 31-June 14) at Coeur de France and absolutely loved it. I was not quite sure what to expect, though I had read several long accounts of other people's experiences. I decided to learn French because my husband and I travel to France rather often. I am not sure why I waited so long... More

My husband & I spent 2 weeks in Sancerre at Coeur de France language school. What an experience! No English was spoken, but, as we were really mostly beginners, they were very helpful: all the teachers took great care to speak slowly and clearly, watching always to be certain they were understood -- and repeating themselves (often!) when needed. They... More

My wife and I just completed a 2 week couples class in French at Coeur de France, May 26 - June 6. Although we had studied French at home for a year, we really had had no opportunities to actually speak French until we came to Coeur de France. When we arrived at the school, the staff was very helpful--they... More

My husband and I took classes for 2 weeks in May. The classes were great, the teachers wonderful. However, Sancerre is isolated, and there were NO optional excursions, as listed on the website! We spoke with the owners, who are very nice, but they admitted they haven't offered optional excursions for at least a year and a half!! One of... More

Thank you for you review and I am delighted that you and your husband enjoyed your classes and our teachers, however, there is obviously a misunderstanding about the availability of our cultural excursions and activities. Cultural activities and excursions have always been -- and continue to be -- an important part of the experience at Coeur de France. It is... More

As a solo learner with little French, mostly continuing education classes for tourists, and recently once a week at a local French alliance, with little focus on speaking, I was overwhelmed with the total French speaking aspect the first week. The teachers were very patient and the people in this quiet and charming tourist town of Sancerre were warm and... More

Regrettably this is my last day in Sancerre after completing a 2 week "immersion" into French language. I would very happily stay for another 2 weeks. I have had one of the best experiences in my life. Right from the moment of arrival until now, it has in a word, only got better! The size of the school is not... More

From the very moment you are greeted at the school you are immersed in the french language at a pace with which you are comfortable. We stayed in the school apartment Margaux which is just upstairs from the school so not far to go in the morning to get to school. Sancerre is a perfect French town with everthing you... More
