Default French classes in Paris

I've sort of asked this before but I now have an opportunity to stay in Paris for possibly a month in August (FO' FREE!!! ). I don't have all of the details yet, but basically my grandma is doing a home exchange with a family from Paris. Not sure if my grandma is going as well, because she doesn't really live in the house they're going to be staying at anymore... I'm hoping it will just be me!

Anyway, since I have a free place to say it makes taking some French courses more affordable. I'm also assuming my grandmother would pay for them and possibly my flight since I'm also graduating college this year...

Can anyone recommend a good school or program to use? I know there are also some internship/working things you can do while you learn the language that might be interesting...

I think I might be there for a month, which is a decent amount of time to really improve my French. Plus I would probably travel for a month or two after that...

One of my high school teachers lived in Prague each summer - this was over 10 years ago so he really jumped on it before it got hot. But he learned Czech by bringing a bag of McDonalds food down to a local park and talking to the homeless/poor. He said he learned more there in 4 afternoons than 4 weeks of class...just a suggestion to augment your classroom learning. But as a younger fem...er...person, be sure to take safety precautions.
