french migros course lausanne

is it me being stupid or is it the case. i am trying to look for a french course in the migros school, considering i am looking up a french course and chosen the website to be in English, when it comes to selecting the course A2 and getting the description it only has it in french- the description of an A2 course... bit silly i thought, since that's the reason i am trying to learn so giving a description all in a language i intend to learn is not very useful!!
how are the migro classes? anyone with good feedback? before i enrol and waste time and money.

Well, it really depends. The profs are not paid too well, in my opinion, so you can get stuck with a really bad one, or can find a really really good one, too. I think there is one trial class you can take and then decide. Our local school has a receptionist that speaks a bit of EN, so maybe yours will have one, too? How about going there in person? I would always choose Universite Populaire in LS, since I am taking the same in GE and it costs very little, same chance of running into a bad or good prof, though. I found a fab prof in Migros Ecole GE, so I wouldn't bash it in general, one has to shop for a good teacher, pretty much everywhere. I know a lot of people who are very happy with their Migros courses, both GE and Nyon, but I have also tried some trial classes that were actually attrocious, before. Try it, then decide.

Hi there, firstly, if you don't understand everything just use an internet translator to help you out. Personally I think it's better that it's not in English, just by reading it in French gets you into using French as a medium to communicate, even if you think you cannot, just by using the most simple of phrases that someone at A2 would know, perhaps if you want to know more, you can write them an email (in French). Expect your classes to be in French too...

Infact, I am the only one in my class of 12 to be an English speaker, so having my class description website in English wouldn't be much used to the Kosovans, Portuguese, Cambodian, Viatnamese... etc in my class...

As for the Migros school, I've heard they're pretty good value for money, but you'll never know unless you go and try. Good luck!
