We went to Lyon and took on a 2-week course at Lyon Bleu International, a small friendly French language school near the central area of Lyon. We heard about this school from a former teacher who now lives in Hong Kong. We had a fun 2-week and met many nice classmates from Germany, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Sweden etc. Adding multimedia elements like music and movie to the traditional teaching, we think this is something in between our Paris School (very interactive and more practice on spoken French) and the Antibes School (more traditional teaching). Paris is a busy capital with many interesting things to offer, and Lyon is more relax, cleaner and nice in many other ways.
The school helped us to find the accommodation and the rate was quite reasonable and included breakfast and wifi access. The room was pretty decent with ensuite toilet, shower, kitchen facilities. It was also within walking distance (20 minutes on foot) from the school.
