" A fantastic and fun environment to learn French. These guys offer so many fabulous ways to immerse oneself in the language from yoga to dance to drama and naturally traditional evening and day classes. There is also many opportunities to try French cuisine and wines and their croissant morning breakfasts every month bring a charming group of Francophiles together."
