Interactive/skills-based German lessons

To preface, I'm an adult ESL teacher with 5 years experience. At my last job especially, my school really focused on making sure students practice all their language schools and balanced listening/speaking/writing/reading. Also, we made sure the was grammar, vocab, and phonics involved in every lesson. I have high expectations.

Here in Switzerland, it seems like they're still teaching language the mid-20th century way. Teacher talks at you for 2 hours and you do gap fills to practice grammar and study vocab out of a book. Does anyone know any schools that are a little more forward thinking? I've tried Allemania and talking to the other students it seems that Migroschule and Flying Teachers are the same.

Any tips greatly appreciated!
