Francophile Karen Eberwein had always dreamed of becoming fluent in French. She realized that the perfect way to learn is total immersion - in a small village in the Dordogne Valley. So she packs a bag, rents a rustic stone cottage, and spends nearly a year in Cénac-et-Saint-Julien, France. Karen refuses to speak English, vows to speak to anyone who is willing to talk with her, religiously carries a French dictionary, and retains a light-hearted, playful approach to learning the language. She has carefully chosen a village not dominated by tourism, arrived in December, and in a surprisingly short amount of time, the local people befriend her. In the process of learning a language, she becomes part of a wonderful French village. Locals who first acknowledged her with a nod, then a handshake, now greet her warmly with kisses on both cheeks. Tag along with Karen as she experiences French life and gains more than just a language.
