French Language School - Montreux

Any recommendations for a French language school in Montreux?

I looked at social media and other website reviews and some of the local schools do not appear to be highly thought of. Saying that, negative items are oftentimes posted more frequently unfortunately when experiences are overwhelmingly positive.

I studied French over 20 years ago in secondary school. My French is quickly coming back to me as we settle in.

I do not want to do online courses or private lessons. Prefer group lessons in the morning for about two to three months.

Re: French Language School - Montreux

Ended up doing evening courses in Lausanne at Migros School. I then used a private tutor to help me pass the DELF.

No evening courses in Monteux and Vevey did not have not have the numbers to make up a the B course at the time. Not sure now.

Montreux schools also seemed to be mostly full of Swiss German teenagers which is grand, but not really whom I wanted to do a long course with. The test class I did consisted of most of them on their phones and not interacting.

How was the Migros School?

I'm with a private tutor online but I want to enrol in some intensive course almost daily.

Migros was great for me. You can go along to their classes too for free to 'test' your level.

They appreciate that you may want to check out the teacher too.
