Courses in Toulouse

Available courses

    All courses are taught by experienced, highly-qualified native French teachers, so you’ll be sure to have the best tuition possible!

    The Intensive Course offers 20 French classes each week, which is our most popular course and ideal for anyone looking to improve their general French skills. If you would prefer more teaching hours each week, opt for a Super-Intensive of 26 or even 40 lessons per week. The Super-Intensive course of 26 lessons includes general French lessons, as well as afternoon workshops which provide a more focussed approach on other aspects of language learning, such as oral expression, vocabulary development and grammar knowledge. The Super-Intensive course of 40 lessons per week provides invaluable linguistic immersion for six hours each day (not including breaks). You will be placed into classes at two similar levels - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The higher level ensures continual progress; the lower level enables students to revise perfect existing skills at a gentler pace.

    Students who attend the Intensive course or the Super Intensive course of 26 lessons per week for at least nine weeks will be able to take the EVALANG test free of charge. This French language level test has been developed by France Education International and provides students with an instant assessment of their level according to the Common European Framework.

    If you’d like to combine group lessons with individual tuition, take the Combined Course of Intensive + Private Lessons, which gives you six additional private lessons on top of your Intensive group course. Or, you can choose a course of Private Lessons only, to completely customise your French programme!

    For more information about any of these French courses, please contact us.


    Available accommodation

      Live with the locals whilst you learn French in Toulouse! Host families, carefully chosen by our school, give you a taste of delicious local dishes, plenty of French practice and a glimpse of the French way of life! Accommodation is in single or shared rooms, on a bed and breakfast or half board basis. If you’d prefer to make your own meal arrangements, our school can arrange self-catering accommodation for you, sharing an apartment with French locals. You can also choose an executive host family if you would like your own private bathroom.

      If you would like a more independent experience, choose to stay in a studio apartment. All studios are located within 15 minutes of the school by public transport, and are equipped with a bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom.


      Helping you get the most from your time in Toulouse, the school offers a variety of activities and excursions. Discover the region’s rich culinary heritage with cookery lessons and meals out in local restaurants. A typical program also includes guided tours of Toulouse’s historic sights, boat cruises down the Garonne river or Canal du Midi, wine-tasting, sports like ice-skating and football, film-nights and much more!

      There are trips to Mediterranean beaches, the Pyrenees and Carcassonne, with its majestic city walls. The school can also help you to get in touch with French students who are learning your native language, giving you both a chance to practice your language skills!

      Intensive 23 with Host Family
      School Staff

      My course was very good. It was at the right level upper part of B2.

      Fabulous. A wonderful family. I did not want to leave. Toulouse is lovely.

      Intensive 23 with Host Family
      School Staff

      I loved the air-conditioned classrooms, the central location of the school, but most of all our teacher Kevin - thank you for being simply great! I feel confident to teach some French to my school children now!

      My accommodation was great - a walking distance from my school, close to the train station, lovely forthcoming host. Perfect

      Intensive 23 with Studio Apartment
      School Staff

      The course was a little too advanced and the speech a little too fast for me, but still very enjoyable as the other students were all at different skill levels as well. Kevin Jamin was very tolerant and helpful. I have told him I want to do the same level course again next year having done some more work.

      Excellent. Mme Monjon was helpful and welcoming and the self-contained bedsitter was perfect - and only 10 minutes from the class. I would be very happy to use this accommodation again (next year?)

      I'm definitely going to pursue my studies and as my family live a short train ride away - at Toulouse again.

      Intensive 23 with Host Family
      School Staff

      The 2 week course was very comprehensive with a focus on grammar and phonetics. The teacher was engaging and interactive. There was also opportunity for extracurricular learning.

      The accomodation was appropriate and my hostess friendly. It was within easy walking distance to the school or 15 min via direct bus route.

      Super Intensive 27 with Studio Apartment
      School Staff

      All instructors and staff were wonderful and my primary instructor, Claire, is a very talented instructor - she is amazing and I learned a lot from her. My studio apartment was cute and very well situated close to the school, to the Capitol, and in a very charming part of the city (La Daurade near the Pont Neuf) so it was wonderful. The landlord picked me up at the airport so that was very helpful and she was extremely nice.

      School Staff

      The school has a great atmosphere, dedicated and friendly staff, and the course was well structured and offered a great variety of methods. It was a great experience, thanks to the wonderful teachers and the welcoming and helpful reception staff! I lived with a lovely host family, generous, helpful and very nice. My room was spacious, the facilities clean and well maintained. I enjoyed my time with the family!

      School Staff

      The course was interesting, challenging and rewarding. The accommodation was fine, the owners were very welcoming and helpful.

      School Staff

      The course was great and so were the teachers. Although I was there for only 2 weeks I think I became more confident in terms of speaking than before as I had to use it with the locals. I wish I could have stayed longer. I loved my homestay, the host family was wonderful and the house was beautifully furnished as well. I felt at home and very pleased. Toulouse is a wonderful city!
