A pleasant and quiet learning environment

Students experience how nice it is to stay at Regina Coeli for a few days, where they discover the peace and quiet needed to concentrate fully on learning the language.

The tranquillity, cleanliness and order you find with us are part of the nuns’ legacy. A French international order of nuns founded Regina Coeli, and sisters from all over the world gave the language lessons. As a result, we came to be known as ‘the Nuns of Vught’.

You can once more take a language course safely and relaxedly. We adhere to COVID-19 guidelines, and we’ve set up the institute so that you can maintain a 1.5-metre distance from each other alongside taking additional hygiene measures.

Your personal language training course

Once you’ve registered for your French training course, you have an intake interview with a language trainer. In this interview, you discuss what you want to learn and look at the options for the design of your programme. After the interview, you receive a personal proposal and determine when you want to start your training.
