About Coeur de France

Coeur de France Cultural Immersion was founded 25 years ago by Marianne and Gérard Chartrand in Sancerre, France. Thousands of persons from around the world have participated in our highly rated resident French language program. 

How Does the French Online Course Work?

Coeur de France online courses are taught by our professional French language teachers who also teach at our school here in Sancerre. All of our teachers are highly qualified, experienced, native French speakers.

Registering for an online course is easy (no need to complete the form on the right side of this page). Just email us the following information:


Address (include your country please)

Time Zone

Age (if under 18)

Class format that you are registering for (One to One, 2:1, Group)

We will reply (usually within 24 hours) with availablity information and payment instructions (Visa, MC and wire transfers accepted) to confirm your course.

After you confirm your course, a Coeur de France teacher will email you to set up a brief level evaluation via Skype. (Of course, if you know that you are a complete beginner, this evaluation isn’t necessary.)

Within a day or two we will contact you to organize dates and times for your classes.


The scheduling of your online course is between you and your teacher. Keep in mind that the greatest scheduling flexibility is for One to One and 2:1 courses since it is fewer people to schedule for a meeting. The more people in a class, the more complex the scheduling times. 

Please note that if you are having a Group class, it can be complicated to have the most convenient time for each student if people are living in very different time zones. We ask that you be as flexible as possible and the teacher will do her/his best to choose times which work for everyone during the work week in France (Monday – Friday). For private lessons, weekends and evenings (French time) may also be possible. All courses are 4 x 1 hour lessons (total 4 hours) unless you organize differently with your teacher.

Depending on your course and your level, you may receive emailed texts or other support materials the teacher considers useful for you (no additional cost).
