LearnerSC this is a good question. I don't know.  I would guess A. The reason being is you have a teacher throughout the whole year as your guide and you have a large amount of spare time to consolidate your learning and correct faults. The crucial factor is what one does outside the classroom.

I'd go with B first, then A. C wouldn't allow enough time in between classes for homework or review, unless you have all the time in the world!

I have Spanish lessons twice a week. My teacher sets homework every time so I feel I am studying for four days in total.

C is the best choice to a language learner。Because you should practice as much as possible

It quite depends on how much time you could spend after the lesson.

But for my opinion, at least two times per week, otherwise it is too slow to see the progress.
