French schools in Lausanne

I have a voucher for French lessons which can be redeemed at Institut Richelieu or at Inlingua Lausanne

Has anyone used either of these schools? Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

Re: French schools in Lausanne

I took what I thought was a beginner French course at Richelieu and discovered that my fellow students were all European (including Swiss Germans!) and so had some basic grasp of the language already. The pace was crazy, but I guess it was the right pace for the majority. The homework was a bit random, topics we didn't do in class. We also got a lot of homework, like 2 hours of homework/study. I have also some friends who wanted to do a course which was full and so the school suggested they join the next level up which was a stretch.

So I would say that Richelieu is a good school but be prepared to work - and don't over-estimate your ability.
