There's a really excellent total immersion programme for learning German in Heidelberg University which takes place for one month in the summer, and a similar one run by the university in Perugia for Italian. Does anyone know of a similar programme in France?

Many thanks

As far as I know, La Sorbonne in Paris offers French language courses, and here are the options for Summer 2010. They also run other courses year round, short session running for about 8 weeks while longer session for several months.

How long did you go for - and was there much support?

I like the look of the one week "Stay in Paris" module.
At €180 is not too much of a commitment.

I've never taken a course there (am considering one next year if I can free some time) but considering La Sorbonne has a reputation to maintain so I'd imagine their support system is pretty good. However, a 1-week course with just 2 hours of classes per day, it's probably going to be relatively basic language course. (I've read of a couple of blogs where the bloggers live in Paris while attending the course at La Sorbonne - the long courses - and the impression I get is, yes, it can get quite hectic for the intensive classes but they enjoyed it.)

Good point about "basic language". Already doing part-time study at local college.
