Looking for French language school

Hi all, I am due to come to Switzerland at the end of September, and would like to attend a language school in Neuchâtel, Berne or Bienne from the beginning of October. Does anyone know such language schools which offer intensive French lessons? If so could you please give me some web links or addresse? Thanks in advance!

Re: Looking for French language school

The Neuchatel commune office has a brochure which will list all the places you can go to to pick up French. Anyway, this is the list I got from that brochure - I kept it even though I have already signed up for classes.

Littoral neuchatelois

Lycee Jean-Piaget
Rue des Beaux-Arts 30
2000 Neuchatel
032 717 88 00

Ecole-club Migros
Rue du Musee 3
2001 Neuchatel
032 721 21 00

Ecole Benedict
Rue de l'Ecluse 38
2000 Neuchatel
032 725 29 81

Interlangues
Grand-Rue 1a
2000 Neuchatel
032 724 07 77

Centre de formation professionnelle du Littoral neuchatelois (CPLN)
Passage Max-Meuron 6
2000 Neuchatel
032 717 78 40

Inlingua
Avenue de la Gare 16
2000 Neuchatel
032 724 62 29

Universite de Neuchatel
(Institut de langue et culture francaise)
Avenue du 1er Mars 26
2000 Neuchatel
032 718 18 00

Globe-Trotter
Verger l'Ecuyer 8
2068 Hauterive
032 753 80 50
(This is near Neuchatel - 15 mins by bus)

I've actually signed up with Ecole-club Migros because the fees are affordable and it's next to Place Pury so it's convenient for me to either take the bus or cycle there.

Anyway, hope this info helps.

Re: Looking for French language school

Thanks a lot for your advice. I will check the schools in your list soon. Also I heard there was a language school called Inlingua which has different branches in many major cities in the country. Don't know if anyone attended it already and would recommend it?

Re: Looking for French language school

I went to the language school offered at the L'Ecole Superieur de Commerce/L'Ecole Lycee Jean Piaget for six months earlier this year and it was great, would give it my full recommendation

We had classes every weekday morning, including a language laboratory where you can work at your own pace. One afternoon a week, plus the option of organized sports for a a total of about 18hours/week, before homework. I made some friends, went from an A1 to almost a B2 in six months, and had excellent teachers.

The only negative is the cost, it was around 4000 CH, though that is not bad for intensive classes when you start shopping around. Good luck!

Try ESL language school (www.esl.ch). They have a good reputation with head office and school in Montreux.
Good luck!
