5 Star reviews since 2013

Our teachers and staff are awesome, and we love to hear how happy our students and clients have been with our services, here are a selection of reviews over the years. 


The Jardin is open! We’re restarting our extensive, intensive and individual courses while assuring 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. 

This is the third conversation English evening I have done and it’s always also interesting, pedagogic and fun! We debated about actualities, the first time. The second evening, we talked about our likes and dislikes. And tonight, we played games as “times up”. It’s always different in a friendly time. The trainers are really helpful and always correct our mistakes with goodwill! I recommend everybody who want to practice and improve their English to join us! Thanks James and Paul!


J’ai connu le Jardin Culturel il y a environ 5 mois et suis désormais assidu (quand j’en ai la possibilité) aux ateliers du mardi et autres conversations du mercredi. Le concept m’a franchement séduit, les choses se déroulant dans une ambiance chaleureuse et amicale entre gens de bonne compagnie. Choses qu’on ne trouve que difficilement ailleurs. J’ai au demeurant le sentiment d’avoir effectué quelques progrès sensibles grâce à la pédagogie patiente et bienveillante de ces excellents maîtres de cérémonie que sont James et Lauren. Je profite de ce petit mot pour les en remercier et pour les assurer de ma fidélité amicale et de toute ma gratitude. Je vais donc continuer à “Jardiner” tant que mes nouveaux amis du Jardin Culturel voudront bien de moi et toléreront mes fautes de syntaxe !!




Je vous recommande fortement cette école avec son équipe 100% anglophone qui mettra toujours le petit plus pour vous permettre de faire de réels progrès en Anglais. J’ai adoré et j’en suis resorti entièrement comblé. Les + : Les locaux sont originaux et conviviaux avec leur petit jardin terrasse.



If you want to improve your level in English, I strongly advise you Jardin Culturel. James learns very well and if you compare with other language centres in Toulouse, it’s the least expensive. So, it offers a very good value for money !!


Hello, I’m french and I come at Jardin culturel one and half years ago. James is a nice guy and a very good teacher. At english conversation, we meet nice people and we discuss about everything. It’s a real kind and pleasant place in the center of Toulouse. I suggest you to join us. :à)

Being an English language teacher myself, I’m quite picky when it comes to language teachers/courses. However, I absolutely loved my group French courses with Pauline at Jardin Culturel. She is very dynamic in the classroom with a variety of interactive activities and clear explanations. I plan to take her class again.

During a brief 3-month stint in Toulouse I went from speaking roughly 10-20 words of French to now being level A2 and able to understand/converse on a few topics. The classes at Jardin Culturel are a really ideal small size and the teachers are brilliantly able to adapt to your pace and needs while staying within the course topics. There are also speaking classes weekly which act as a forum to practice with people of comparable ability. Evening classes also make it highly ideal for those who work Monday-Friday. Highly recommend Jardin Culturel and would certainly return there if I’m ever in that neck of the woods again.
