French lessons in Vevey or Montreux

Currently living in Vevey , can anyone recommend french schools or french teachers ?

I can travel to montreux , at a push lausanne. Ideally looking for evening or weekends . I have found a school in vevey but their course does not start till mid sept so wondering whether there is anywhere that can offer sooner than mid sept.

thanks in advance

Re: French lessons in Vevey or Montreux

My partner's been studying for the past 3 weeks in Lausanne on an intensive French course at the UNIL.

I believe the next 3 week session starts next week (and they still have places).

It is a full time course though (definitely all morning).

Re: French lessons in Vevey or Montreux

As for UNIL, they have 3 offerings. As per their web site here is the info.,

(www.unil.ch/fle)School of French offers, during the academic year, courses in French language, literature and civilisation, as well as training in language teaching. Beginners are not accepted. Therefore, as a minimum requirement, your French language skills must be good enough to allow you to take part in everyday conversation and to understand and write a variety of simple texts.

Organised every year during the University vacations in summer and winter, the Cours de vacances (Vacation Courses) (www.unil.ch/cvac) offers courses in French language, literature and civilisation are intended for non French-speaking students of different levels: complete beginner, beginner, intermediate and advanced. No preconditions need to be met. These courses are particularly recommended for non French-speaking students intending to study at the UNIL. Fees for these courses are to be paid by the students themselves.

The Programme Tandem (www.unil.ch/tandem), a simple yet efficient method for improving foreign language skills, is organised as follows: two people whose mother tongue is different agree to meet on a regular basis and teach each other their respective languages free of charge. The partners are completely autonomous since they decide where and how often they will meet, what form their meetings will take, and how they will correct each others' mistakes.

Hope it helps

I'm studying French in Vevey at Migro (http://www.ecole-club.ch) which is quite cheap compared with the others. The pace is quite 'relaxed' with one lesson per week but there is semi-intensive and intensive classes also.

Regarding the Migro school and course , how would you rate it ? just that my colleagues said they had heard it wasnt very good so I hadnt considered them. If its any good it would be handy as its only five minutes walk from my office.

Well as I said the pace is leisurely, but I've been happy with it as its easy to fit around work commitments, and I am actually making progress where otherwise I would have been overwhelmed the additional time and cost of another course.
