Why Learn a New Language?

Travel The World With Confidence

French is spoken by 12% of the European Union’s population, French is the fourth most widely spoken mother tongue in the EU after German, English and Italian; it is also the third-most widely known language of the Union after English and German (33% of the EU population report knowing how to speak English, 22% of Europeans understand German, 20% French).

Increase Your Job Opportunities

In an increasingly global world an extra language is the difference between being “just another candidate” and being a real contender. While English remains a vital global language, Spanish, French and German are all widely used and useful to the international worker. 

More Perspective on Arts & Culture

To learn about another culture is to learn about your own. French is rich language with philosophy, poetry and heritage, Spanish cinema, German writers, every new language opens a door to a new world and we look forward to helping you open them. 

Become a Better Learner

Studying a new language whether you’re a student or retiring is a great way to improve your mental acuity. At Jardin Culturel we don’t believe in boring repetitive grammar drilling, speaking is the best way to get better at speaking. 

Business Travel & Communication

Knowing when to shake hands or kiss cheeks, knowing when to bow or not to isn’t just a matter of language, at the Jardin we give you the Culturel elements as well. Learn to succeed internationally with our business acumen and carefully crafted courses. 

Speak With More People

If you live abroad or are new in Toulouse, you’ll know that meeting people and then communicating with them is vital. We can stay in our expat bubbles, but to pop that zone of exclusion and dive into the real life around us is vital when abroad. 


What Our Students Say

 I had a great time studying here. The teacher Pauline struck a great blend of grammar, speaking and listening; somehow even managing to make the grammar parts fun! A relaxed atmosphere with passionate and well-organised staff. Highly recommended

Studying French extensive courses for live in France. 

I had my French classes with Ms.Pauline Petit-Brun and I thoroughly enjoyed it ! She is a package of fun. She came up with different activities which made learning French not so difficult. It was really great and helpful! The institute is easily accessible by metro. They even offer conversation classes that lets you talk to new people in French to improve speaking skills. I highly recommended if you have free time ! Also, they organize events such as hiking etc,.. which is a good experience as well! In short, a great place to learn the language !

This is truly an amazing and special place! I participated in the French conversation every week with Nadia, who is so welcoming and patient and helpful! I met a bunch of people through these weekly conversation and I felt like my French improved a lot throughout my months in Toulouse, in large part because of these weekly conversations. There are a variety of levels in the conversation which means everyone is interacting and helping each other, with Nadia leading and occasionally correcting. A wonderful experience and I already miss it!
