Cross country skiing - skating vs classic

Hello! Got a question for experienced cross country skiiers. I have done classic XC skiing and I love it, but I am looking forward trying skating. I've been told that it is very difficult, and it's been hard to find a school to get some lessons. 


Does anyone have an opinion on this? any preferences?

I've done both type of ski de fond lessons in La Vattay, 40 minutes from Geneva.


Skating is more difficult, that's for sure.

I haven’t done it personally, but you could get in touch with these people  to see when they will be doing this next season

http://www.scig.ch/wp-content/uploads/20190302_PlateauGlieres.pdf
https://www.gbnordique.fr/welcome/

 
There’s also the International Ski School that is not far away at La Faucille and otherwise  present in many stations in France and Switzerand    https://www.ecoledeski.fr/en/school
 
Or if you search on the Ecole de Ski Francaise site they teach it in quite a few places in the Haute Savoie. 
 
Or ask the Ecole Suisse de Ski in whatever ski staton in Switzerland you fancy.
