While I admire the mission and goals of this school, after attending 4 weeks of other French classes at other locations in France, I was very disappointed in this school, and, in fact, left after 2 days because: 1. I did not find the course material challenging and interesting. I know the French subjunctive, and I know and am not... More

The teaching at Coeur de France was of an exceptional standard. I was in a small group class (3 students) and the attention to each student was given at exactly the right level for each of us. I was taught by Marianne who was very experienced but always enthusiastic. My big mistake was not staying for longer. After a few... More

The teaching staff at the school are enthusiastic and encouraging, and genuinely supportive of the students at all levels. The school is... More

She doesn't teach every class. I had booked one month of classes. When I was too ill to travel, I missed the first week. There was no refund of either the class or my apartment. That, in itself, might have been understandable...but, I was thrown into the class [with Marianne} that had already had one week of the book, teaching... More

Thank you for your review. Marianne C. very well may be the best French teacher in the world but one woman cannot teach all classes at Coeur de France (and take care of me and our 3 children!). Remember that you registered for a Group class but then for personal reasons were unable to come for the first week (and... More

We stayed for a week in Balzac apartment, and did a 'couples program' with Laura. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer. Program was really well organised, yet flexible to our needs. Daily pronunciation class was an added bonus. School organised soirées for students .most days but we weren't able to join in as we wanted to use the... More

Thank you for your review. It's true, 1 week is short but it gives you a chance to improve your French skills in the time you have available. Just think what you can do with a longer stay next time! Merci encore. Gérard More

The setting for The Coeur de France is amazing, a small village on top of a hill steeped in history, vintage wines and very hospitable to share all this with those who would desire to experience it. Sancerre offers a unique setting to learn not just the french language but some of the history and culture of France. I so... More

Having considered 'immersing' myself in France for some years now, I arrived at Coeur de France for my 2 week stay quite apprehensive but very excited! I drove from the UK but only used the car once although it did prove useful for transporting home all the wine and cheese I bought! Any fears I might have had disappeared immediately... More

My son (8) and I had a wonderful week in Sancerre. We shared a teacher and despite our different levels in the French language we both progressed and enjoyed ourselves immensely.
