    I'm thinking about studying French or Italian for an extended period of time (3-5/6months?) preferably in Switzerland but after just a quick internet search it seems that most of the options are very expensive private language schools which charge in the thousands for just a couple of weeks.
    Are there any other options available? I wouldn't mind doing volunteer work to help with the costs (in fact, I'd probably prefer it) or any other ways of studying the language formally?


    You may find it a little cheaper to organise once you are actually there. These types of courses always tend to be more expensive if you book in advance. Why not do a spot of travel, then start the classes when you find some? Usually if you are staying in hostels or backpackers there will be endless adverts for language classes.

    Why Switzerland? Why not France or Italy? Would probably be cheaper and easier to learn the local language?
