Other comments:
Please fix the coffee machine! Kept getting black sweetened coffee when I asked for unsweetened coffee with milk. Trivial, but still frustrating during a short break between classes. There seems to be a large turnover of teachers so wonder about their working conditions and salaries as compared with other schools.

Make contact with the other students, because that helps them to speak the new language.
Other comments:
It wasn't good, when I had to repeat the same course two times, so I think it´s better to make the time from the beginning of the course suitable for the student.

Lyon is a fantastic city worth exploring every nook and cranny. I had lots of time after my morning classes to take in the sights and enjoy my summer in the city.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
If you're staying more than a week, consider getting a Velo'v membership. It's quicker than taking the bus or metro and you'll be able to see more of the city by using the bikes for hire.
Other comments:
No food is allowed to be eaten inside the classrooms, so come to class with a full stomach and bring a snack for the break.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Do not get sick and if you do, make sure you end up in the hospital - otherwise, the school will not refund or work with you to change your dates of attendance. You're just out of luck and money.
Other comments:
They are utterly inflexible and apathetic concerning student health, unless you end up hospitalized. They will do nothing but keep your money.

There is an amazing ice cream/gelato place in Vieux Lyon. It was the best ice cream I have ever had. Try the ginger.
Other comments:
I found that the instructor talked too fast in my class and it was beyond my ability to comprehend what she was saying. I attended a tutorial for the class that was one level below and found it far too easy and slow. I was very disappointed to find such a large gap between the two levels. The instructor eventually slowed down a little bit during the second week but the classes still lacked a structure and did not really connect with each other. We never received a detailed syllubus and the materials handed out to us each day were some sheets photocopied from some unknown workbook. There were no exercises with solutions given for practice and no textbook for reference. I was disappointed with the organization of the school and the quality of the instruction. The administration was willing to move me to the easier section, but I thought that would have been worse in the end.

Other comments:
I began at Lyon Bleu in the 8th week of the teaching cycle, so I missed the first 7 weeks of instruction at that level. I asked for the teaching materials (handouts) from the previous 7 weeks but was not able to get them. It would have been very helpful for me.

Other comments:
I've taken a few short-term intensive courses in different countries and somehow, to my regret, this was the weakest one. The curriculum was far from applied or intensive and very unflexible, considering we were a group eager to talk and interact. My host family was never present to practice with so both of us students lodged there were fishing for other ways to practice. Very tiny rooms which, thanks to the heat wave, got stuffy. There was no fresh air on one side or direct cold blast from AC. Would not be able to recommend this course.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Be aware, when you pay for a full week and the school is closed for a national holiday, you will lose a day's class with no refund or credit. While in another school I've been to if you lose a day due to holiday they give extra hours during the week. In Lyon in April/May I paid for 7 wks but due to national holidays I received 6 wks and 1 day.
Other comments:
I was there in April/May and the building and classrooms where excessively hot which for me was annoying when studying.

Other comments:
It takes a while before you're acclimatized, whilst being in a class that have been together for a week or longer. Improving the start for new students is recommended. 25 hours is a lot, but is certainly doable!

Other comments:
Tip: I think that many students are interested in taking courses on the long run. In this case, most of them will go to university, which is a cheaper way to study. Indeed, for this school to reach a global market, it could be a good idea to cut its prices, improve its teaching methods and its e-marketing. It could be also great to develop partnerships with other universities. Within few months, it could have a far greater reputation.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Make sure teachers manage the class fairly. There were talkative Latinos who need to talk less and study grammar more, and quiet Asians who knew the grammar but needed to talk more. If you stay quiet, teachers may just focus on the talkative ones.
Other comments:
I stayed with a French family, and unfortunately there were bed bugs! It was really bad and I had to go to the hospital after I left Lyon. I also have to fumigate all my luggage before going home. I reported to the school, so hopefully they will make sure this won't happen again...

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
The system of school is difficult for making friends. The students are divided into two groups; the morning group and the afternoon one. Luckily I was in the morning class. If you're a late-nighter for drinking, I recommend to join the afternoon group. Then, you can sleep late into the morning. Otherwise, you would miss many classes.
Other comments:
The school facilities are excellent in general though, the wifi is slow comparing to another school in Lyon. The host family I stayed for the first week was horrible. I had a impression that they didn't welcome the students, but want to receive only the money. I felt a miserable guest in the family. After talking with the school about this problem, they rearranged another host family immediately. I was very happy with staying at the second one.
