French in Zurich

Hello,
I really want to learn some French.
The problem is that
1. I live in Zurich.
2. My German is A1-A2, so I can't really take a course because I believe they teach French in German.
3. Can you please recommend good coursebooks with CDs for beginners ?
Thanks.

Have you tried Duolingo as a starting point to get the basics?

Find a French course that is only taught in French, rather than from German or English.

I would guess that the courses at the Alliance Franšaise de Zurich are taught in French.

Re: French in Zurich

Can somebody recommend any 1-1 private classes of French on Skype ? I found EASY LANGUAGES, but they have only german language teachers...

Thanks so much for the link, I will surely try to take this course in the nearest future.
Unfortunately I have realized that the private lessons on SKYPE would be the best option due to the lack of my mobility.
Can you be so kind as to recommend any private teachers so that I can learn basic stuff ?
