Looking for a German Course in Bern (though with particular stipulations)

Hi all,

My girlfriend, though, is Bernese, and I am going to go visit her for the entire month of December (or from 03/12/15 to 05/01/16 specifically).

I would like to use my month there wisely and begin learning German, because I am fairly certain that I am going to relocate there sometime in the next year (and I will spend the first half of next year learning it in the USA as well).

I was wondering if anyone could give me some recommendations; I know zero German, though I am using Memrise to start learning some basics.

Thankfully having a swiss gf is helpful because she found a list of all the German school in Bern on the canton website (though it, ironically, is all in German), so I at least "know" my options.

My problems, though, are

1. I do not know how to seriously discriminate between the 15 or so that are listed.

2. this month long period is an awkward amount of times because it is quite short and because of Christmas holidays; many school end their courses in the middle of December; not so convenient for me.

3. When one knows little/no German, is it better to go to klubschule migros, for example, and have a group lesson that is cheaper, or to pay more money for a 1v1 session and potentially move through the basics much more quickly?

4. My desire to do this was conceived recently and thus gives little time for preparation.

Thanks for your input and I apologize for the length of this query.
