Language school

My wife wants to retire and fulfill a long held dream to be able to be able to converse in french. When we were in Tolouse, we heard about the "Alliance" which intrigued her. What she is looking for is formal education mixed with a homestay of some type. Her thinking is that she will be able to pick up the language much quicker if there are people to talk to outside of school, little kids especially.

Does something like this exist in Cahors?

I can recommend two excellent schools neither of which are in Cahors:

1. In Aix-en-Provence http://www.iefee.com/

2. In Tours http://www.institut-touraine.asso.fr/

Alliance information is here: http://www.alliancefr.org

If your wife is serious about learning French, she should start now, there are many free sources available on line:
