French Immersions Programs


I am wondering if anyone has had experience with the DialoguE immersion programs. I have not been able to find any independent reviews on this program. I am also considering CLE in Tours. I am an adult and would like a very serious French immersion experience.

Thank you!

At one point we were thinking of moving to France and looked into this. The one recommended by friends who had done it was in Villefranche sur Mer www.institutdefrancais.net

I didn't experience it but they were very pleased with their time there and seemed to speak pretty good French.

I have heard wonderful things about the Institut de Francais in Villefranche, from more than a single source as well. I also recommend these two schools:

I did CLE in Tours several years ago, and although I was just doing it for "enrichment", it was a great learning experience. They do take their mission very seriously, and I have only the best things to say about CLE.

Did you attend either of the schools you mentioned ? CLE or DialogE- and if so, what was your experience?
