Il était une fois

"Can a 60-year-old budding eccentric, who hated school, learn French in a four-week immersion course in a classroom in the south of France? ...the short answer is yes, in four weeks at Institut de français you will learn an awful lot; meet some great new friends; have a lot of fun and a fabulous appreciation of French food and wine culture, country and much, much more!"
