I'm thinking about studying French or Italian for an extended period of time (a couple of months?) 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.
Does anyone know of 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 could homestay with someone who also tutors you, I'm sure there are places that do that.
Otherwise, I'm not quite sure to be honest with you. But I'll bombard you with links!
http://languagestudy.goabroad.com/Switzerland.cfm - Have you looked through this list yet?
But yeah, I think it'll at least be £1,000 minimum for every language school (for the duration of a couple of weeks).
Summer immersion schools tend to be that much, I think.
http://www.teenagersabroad.com/prici...espricing.html - this is for ages 18 and below though.
http://www.spainexchange.com/study_a...2-CH-en-oi.htm - another search.
- a place with the prices in Switz currency.
Hope that helps! If you do a more thorough search, you'll find a place! =D Try and see if anyone else has gone there though.
Even maybe browse a school through YouTube. So you can get an idea of what it's like and whether it's worth it or not.

I went to Spain with www.halsbury.com to do a work placement. Was really good! I recommend the company - they do placements & language schools.
