About us

Objectives of Association Natif :
Our objective is to help non French speakers to integrate into Gers society, primarily by teaching them about French language and culture.

A non-profit oragnisation :
Association NATIF is a non-profit organisation (under the1901 law). That is to say that the directors are volunteers, and the monies collected for lessons and subscriptions are used entirely to pay for tutors’ salaries, teaching materials, premises and other charges incurred in the running of the school.

An official Training Organisation :
Association Natif is an official  Training Organisation, registered at the Prefecture of Toulouse. For this, trainings can be carried out by companies or fund collecting and distributing agencies.
