French intensive language course: duration? Reviews on Voxea School in Lausanne?

Hello

I need to improve my french (A2) and would like to attend a french language course. I was wondering if I should go for the standard course 3,5hours a day for 16 weeks (or longer) or intensive course 6hours (3,5hs plus 2,5hs oral language training) for ten weeks? What do you think makes more sense? What's your experience?

Furthermore does anyone has experience with Voxea language school in Lausanne?

Thanks
Kirabi

Hi Kirabi,


One of my friends took an intensive french course at the same school a couple of years ago, its name was Bosques at that time or smth like that. He had a very negative opinion about classes as there were only unemployed foreigners and thier courses were paid by ORP so they were just spending thier time to receive their unemployment benefit- no motivation and need to study french and finaly it was a waste of time and money. May be having changed the name smth's changed for the better.....

I'm currently taking Skype lessons for German, maybe that would be a solution for you. My school is offering 50% off if you go and like their page on Facebook or follow them on LinkedIN etc. I'm satisfied, very flexible and high quality teacher, also affordable.

Just wanted to give an update. In the end I've went with Voxea and I must say I'm super happy with them. Progressed quite a bit in A2 course and teacher really put lots of effort into it, helped and explained as much as possible. The other students were great (Foreigners with different backgrounds) and they tried to get the most out of the lessons.
If it would be cheaper, I like to continue there, but for now I'll go for online classes.
