I arrived in Lyon with zero French knowledge (A1.1), and thanks to Lyon BleuI left three months later with a B2 level! Before starting my course, I received so much help from the director to sort out my visa, classes, and housing. My first month of class, taught by Eva, was truly spectacular. I then had classes with several other teachers, all equally enthusiastic and helpful. Lyon itself is beautiful and located perfectly for those who wish to travel (with Paris, Marseille, and Geneva just a quick train ride away!). Lyon Bleu offers stellar individualized service (of a caliber that I have never encountered at other language schools). It's a true gem. Thank you very much for this unforgettable experience!

I had during three weeks a language course at the school Lyon Bleu besucht, um mich auf ein Austauschsemester im französischsprachigen Teil der Schweiz vorzubereiten. Dafür habe ich zum einen den Cours de français intensif premium und zum anderen einen Cours individuel ausgewählt. Im Intensivkurs (Level C1) hatte ich Marie-Hélène als Unterrichtende, die als selbstständige Lehrerin von der Schule angestellt ist. Ich war rund um zufrieden mit deren Unterricht. At the beginning of the week, we had one lesson each, which we worked on in the lessons during the day (week 1: art, week 2: environment, week 3: economics). Jeder Morgen war einem anderen Schwerpunkt gewidmet (Grammatik, Sprechen, Schreiben, etc.). Auch die Nachmittage waren diesen Schwerpunkten gewidmet. In these workshops, however, fewer students attended, and we were able to learn about our own personal needs and the training was tailored to our own needs. The training courses of the Intensivkurses gave me the opportunity to learn more. Marie-Hélène überzeugte mit viel Elan und Kreativität. Sie war es nie müde, unsere spitzfindigen Fragen zu beantworten. Zudem war dem Unterricht immer anzumerken, dass sie in dessen Vorbereitung viel Zeit und pädagogisches Fachwissen investiert hatte. Sie verlangte viel und gab uns anspruchsvolle Hausaufgaben, die sie dann auch mit Sorgfalt korrigierte und uns zeitnahe und mit individuellen Feedbacks versehen zurückgab. Auch auf zwischenmenschlicher Ebene nahm ich Marie-Hélène als überaus kompetente Lehrperson wahr. Sie zeigte ehrliches Interesse an ihren Schülerinnen und Schülern und erzählte auch gerne von sich, was eine angenehme Beziehung ermöglichte, die wiederum das Lernklima positiv beeinflusste. I was a little less impressed with the private arrangements. My aim was to make sure that I was able to learn during these lessons. The first problem in the context of this course was that there was a lack of communication between the language organiser (Boa Lingua) and the language school. This led to the fact that my teacher of the first week - but there was a change of teacher between weeks 1 and 2 - did not take anything from my teacher's course and therefore the private lessons were not appropriate for me. Ab Woche 2 änderte sich dies und meine Lehrerin (Romane) hatte sich die Zeit genommen, sich in mein Gebiet einzuarbeiten. Ihren Unterricht fand ich jedoch wenig hilfreich, weil sie sich eng an ein Lehrmittel hielt, das ich zufälligerweise vor meinem Aufenthalt gekauft hatte. Wenn ich dies gewusst hätte, hätte ich wohl auf die Privatlektionen verzichtet und stattdessen das Lehrmittel auf eigene Faust durchgearbeitet. Auch hatte ich den Eindruck, dass meine Lehrerin mit wenig Motivation dabei war - vielleicht lag dies aber auch daran, dass der Privatunterricht immer am späten Nachmittag stattfand. Ich bin mir bewusst, dass die Lehrpersonen von Lyon Bleu selten Privatunterricht in meinem Fachgebiet geben und es deshalb verständlich ist, dass sie meine Erwartungen nicht vollends erfüllt haben. Was mich positiv überrascht hat, war die Flexibilität von Lyon Bleu, as I was previously transferred from the Corona-Pandemie to the home. Innerhalb von zwei Tagen hatte die pädagogische Verantwortliche meinen Stundenplan neu organisiert und ich konnte dem Unterricht von zu Hause aus über Zoom folgen. The two days were not simply frozen - I could have finished them in the next week. Zudem glichen die zum Intensivkurs gehörenden Lektionen dem Privatunterricht, weil ich Eins-zu-Eins-Unterricht mit Marie-Hélène durfte - und dies zum selben Preis! I would especially like to thank Janine, who organised the extracurricular activities. She trotzte den warmen Sommertemperaturen und führte auf ihren Touren durch die Strassen und Museen Lyons. Dabei hatte sie viele spannende Informationen bereit. Am Freitagabend lud sie jeweils zu sich nach Hause ein und kochte französische Spezialitäten - merci!
