Extraordinary experience. I can't believe that there are better french educators anywhere. How else could a month of 8-hour days learning/improving French fly by. This is not a program for the faint of heart, or those looking for a please month in the sun with some French thrown in. But if you are seriously interested in learning or improving your French, it is a fabulous experience. Just don't expect to do a lot of site-seeing or lazing about; we usually came home, grabbed a bite of supper, did our homework (yes, there was even homework!) and went to bed. Three weekends to do laundry, get organized, and perhaps take in some sights in Nice, or elsewhere on the Cote d'Azur. The student body is a great mix of ages -- from 20s to 70s, and all nationalities. Classes no larger than 10, and my class had several Americans and students from Switzerland, Monaco, Japan, Denmark, Netherlands, and Russia.
Not cheap, but includes breakfast and full hot lunch every weekday, and 7 hours of instruction/labs/ etc.
