Try speaking french all the time, even if it's easier to speak English, that's the only way to learn the language, and don't be afraid to make mistakes.

While I enjoyed the interaction with students and teachers, I found it VERY annoying that some students insisted on using their portable electronic dictionaries - I'm sure the teachers found it annoying also.

Teachers are professional and try to provide you with the maximum of the notions and to optimize times. This is good expecially for those who attend the school for brief periods and need to progress quickly.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Lyon bleu is moving to a new location, about which I know nothing except that it will be better and more furnished than the current one. Organization is good and teaching effective. Moreover, there are many social activities that students can attend mostly for free, such as the tours around the city. You can also take part to chocolate tasting or to ceramic laboratories. You can find all the information you need about restaurants, clubs, theaters, concerts and special events on the school notice board. In other words, you have all you need!
Other comments
It was a great experience, no doubt about it. I encountered some rigidity regarding the schedule for the lessons, which I didn't find in other language schools, like the one I attended in London. However, I guess it depends on the number of available classes and professors. I'm saying it because there were a couple of factors that made my days a little tiring: the home-school distance (2 buses which had to be taken at a certain time in order not to lose the connection) and the time of the lessons, which started at 8:45. if some young man or damsel wants to both go to the school and enjoy the night life they'd better ask for an accomodation close to the school or for a more convenient timing, 'cause once you have been assigned to a course you cannot change it. You can do it only for work reasons, or things like that. This is purely for informative purpose!

2 hours 15 min lessons without a break in the afternoon is too much. The students had very few possibilities to speak french themselves. We just had to listen to the teacher. Large group(12 students)

the kitchen in the apartment was very very tiny and not very well equipped. Fine if you wanted to heat up meals that were already prepared, but real 'cooking' was too difficult to do.

I stayed in CISL, which was good and cheap but miles away from the school. There was a transport strike at that time so I ended up taking the taxi a lot. If possible , stay in town!

I think this school is best for those who are a bit self motivated to learn beyond the class, or who have a higher command of the language as the class sizes are a little big, and the curriculum is not well established. Overall the experience with my host family and other students made it worth it.
