What Makes Us Unique?

We believe that learning a language in the real world is as valuable as learning in a classroom environment – one complements the other.

Each day of your program combines classroom time with real world immersion in the village. This combination of classroom instruction and immediate application in the real-world provides constant feedback reinforcing the concepts you learn in class. The village becomes an extension of your classroom!

I have been to CDF over the 2018 and 2019 French summers. I love Sancerre and Coeur de France. My French went from absolute beginner to Intermediate due to the teaching I received there but equally so, to the inspiration it provided me to want to get better.

I was a student at Coeur de France in July of 2019. I had been studying French for the past several years in the States and wanted to use what I had learned in France while also improving my skills. After doing a bit of research I decided on this school.
