My wife and I are long term residents of France (since 2009). Naturally, we spoke some French, but had never studied formally. We wanted to study and improve our knowledge of French, with a focus on improve our conversational French. We had a wonderful teacher (Marianne da Cruz) who guided us through the 2 week program. We covered many basic... More

My wife and I spent 2 terrific weeks at the Coeur de France language school. Firstly regarding the french learning part: Whilst being classed 'intermediate level' I found the course quite challenging at times but extremely rewarding. I found that the grammar I had studied previously really sank in whist working at the CDF. We had the couples option with... More

My son (age 7) attended Coeur de France this past summer for a two week program. It was such a spectacular experience that we already plan on returning next summer. Thank you to Marianne and Gerard, the owners of the school, for making us feel so welcomed the moment we arrived. My son's instructor was Madame Beth. She was wonderful.... More

My 2 weeks at the Coeur de France was a wonderful learning experience. My class placement was appropriate and my language skills improved during the 2 weeks I attended class. The teachers are professional, positive and encouraging. I had a wonderful apartment within a 2 minute walk to the school. The village of Sancerre is charming and safe. There are... More

We were very fortunate to select Coeur de France in Sancerre. There was a lot of encouragement not only to speak French, but to live the culture. My little daughters appreciated their teacher Marianne. My teacher Valérie was always eager to help. The same for Malushi, Beth, Gwendolyn, Laurie, and even Magey and Annette. It was a very pleasant atmosphere.... More

My husband was raised in France and we return often to visit his family. I wanted to be able to communicate with them and needed some help getting started. This school was perfect for me. I took a two-week advanced beginner class and at the end of the two weeks, my understanding of the French language had increased immensely and... More

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

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

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
