Student reviews & feedback

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.

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.

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!
