Coeur de France is a fabulous school. My husband and I had a three week private language course, and we could not be happier with the experience. Laurie, our instructor, was one of the most patient human beings on the planet! My husband and I fumbled our way through conversations in French, and Laurie patiently corrected us, shaped our conversations,... More

From our very first email of inquiry up until the end of our course, Gerard and Mary Ann at Coeur de France were easy and professional to deal with as well as very accommodating. The coursework was challenging but both our French language skills and our confidence at speaking French improved immensely by the end of our time at the... More

This was my first trip to Coeur de France. I arrived feeling a bit apprehensive and out of my comfort zone, but I needn't have worried. Throughout the entire week I found all the teachers very friendly, patient and professional ( not surprising as Marianne's passion and commitment to the school is truly inspirational). I had one to one lessons;... More

Bonjour ! Thanks for sharing your experience at Coeur de France. I think you pointed out a very important fact about One to One private lessons: Being in a private class doesn't mean being alone; you ALWAYS have the opportunity to interact with fellow students in the various optional excursions and activities that are offered daily. I'm delighted that you... More

I wasn't sure what to expect - in some ways it was very different than what i expected language wise - it very much a class where you get out of it what you put into it. Reflecting on my week, I got a much better base in French which is very helpful, had a very nice time in the... More

Thanks for coming to Coeur de France. You're absolutely right: learning a language takes effort and one does indeed get out of it what one puts into it. Glad you enjoyed your experience and I hope to see you again someday soon! Gérard More

This was my forth time at the Coeur de France but my first time in a group class. The language school does a wonderful job of making you feel like you're part of french family. All the instructors are very competent and friendly and work hard to make the class fun and educational.

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

Bonjour. Thank you for review. In reply to your 4 points: 1. You registered for an Advanced Group class and your classmates were at your level. As an Advanced Group class the subjects studied are appropriate for that level and as a Group class the topics of conversation must be of a general interest to all members of the Group... 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

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
