French Intensive

Courses all year long

Ideally suited to people who have a limited timeframe, who wish to master their French as quickly as possible, or those who are simply looking to boost their linguistic competency!

We offer 4-week and 2-week courses every month. We limit our classes to a maximum of 8 students because we believe that our students learn more easily and can benefit from individual attention from the teacher in smaller groups!


June 15th 2020

The Jardin is open! We’re restarting our extensive, intensive and individual courses. We’ve moved our classrooms around to make sure that all the government policies on social distancing and hygiene are met. Unfortunately, we’re not able to offer our conversation sessions at the moment, but we’re hoping to do so as soon as possible. 

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to mail us :).

Levels for all learners

Staring at A1 all the way to B1 or 2 depending on demand.

The Jardin is open all year long

We are only closed for 2 weeks over Christmas. Course prices will be adjusted to take into account lessons missed due to public holidays.

There is a 30 min break included, and FREE conversation classes also included with an intensive course subscription!


Tarifs des cours intensifs

Au Jardin Culturel, nous privilégions la qualité et l'encouragement à la quantité. Nos classes ont une taille maximale de 8 personnes tandis que la plupart des autres écoles de langues ne commencent que lorsqu'elles ont 10 personnes ou plus. Profitez d'un café gratuit, accédez à nos livres et DVD, apprenez dans une maison professionnelle plutôt que dans une autre usine d'examen.

For TBS students or Erasmus card holders there is now a 10% discount in effect. If you are a student but not at TBS, or if you are not an Erasmus member, we invite you to contact your school to form a partnership with Jardin Culturel so we can offer you discounts as well.

If you book 3 months in advance we are happy to offer you a 5 % discount.

Please note, offers cannot be used in conjunction.

Course prices will be adjusted to take into account lessons missed due to public holidays.

What Our Students Say

I started the French intensive course early this year and it was the best language course I ever had! The lessons with our teacher Flora were exciting, funny, with relevant interesting topics and I learned a lot! The groups are small so you’ll have a lot of possibilities to talk and improve fast. I had such a warm and wonderful time in Jardin Culturel and got to know a lot of people. The area around is beautiful with a small market in the heart of Toulouse. Highly recommended!!!!


Intensive FLE student

I was enrolled in the intensive French course for two months in March and April 2019. All the Jardin Culturel team has been very helpful and warm. Teachers are experienced and open-minded for discussions for all of our questions. School is situated in very city centre that is easily accessible to any other places (markets, supermarkets, boulangeries, restaurants, pharmacies, and touristic spots etc). It’s truly a great place to be embraced when you just first arrive to a new city. Highly recommended!
