How Far Can You Rise in Your Career?

Working in your second language means truly mastering all three competencies: Writing, reading, and speaking. In fact, over half of Executive positions in the Federal public service require these skills.

Because most Manager and Director-level positions require at least a BBB (and some require a CBC), Federal public service employees will progress further in their careers more quickly by strengthening their abilities in a second language.

Being bilingual is both a challenge and a gift. With us, you can get your B & C levels faster, in a way that fits your schedule and learning style.

What Makes Our Programs so Unique?

LRDG: The Leading Language Provider With the Resources and Staff to Help You Succeed

Teaching vs tutoring

Our system is different; it’s not simply a traditional language class held over Zoom. Instead, we focus on providing second language instruction for both individuals and small groups that combines one-on-one attention with the online learning resources you need. For every hour of coaching with your tutor, you get 3 extra hours of guided learning in your portal. This gives you the flexibility of learning whenever and wherever you want.

The three pillars of our methodology

Weekly practice and self-study / Experienced tutors / Your learning portal.

On top of that, you get a team of 4 continuously guiding you and supporting you towards language learning success: a product specialist, a personal tutor, a pedagogical advisor and an account manager/ client success agent.

Learning Language: A Personal Experience

At LRDG, we believe that learning a language should be a personal, interactive and evolving experience. All you need to do is take the first step. Choose a language course that will help you achieve your goals, and before you know it you’ll share in the success along with thousands of other Public Service employees that have joined us since 2002.

SLE stands for “Second Language Evaluation,” which is a suite of tests developed by the Public Service Commission of Canada to measure fluency and proficiency in one’s second language. SLE tests consist of reading comprehension, written expression, and oral proficiency, in that order, and grades within these tests (A,B,C) are used to define a public service employee’s bilingualism profile.

The difficulty of the SLE test will vary depending on a candidate’s proficiency in the second language. With proper preparation, practice, and confidence, you can succeed in the test. You can prepare by learning from experienced tutors, incorporating the second language into your everyday life, and practising with online resources or self-assessment tools. Remaining focused and present in the moment, thinking positively, and remaining calm throughout the exam will also help you optimise your performance.

For the test of written expression, learners have 45 minutes to answer 30 multiple-choice questions, which include fill-in-the-blank problems and error identification. . The test of reading comprehension provides candidates with 45 minutes to answer 25 questions.. The oral language assessment is administered by a live evaluator and usually takes 20-40 minutes. There is no specific number of questions.

What Our Graduates Say

Previous Previous
Next Next

My colleague in Human Resources had been using LRDG to learn English and said that it was excellent. She also helped me to understand that it was easy to set up contracts with LRDG because they were on standing offer already!

- Mark

I had a tutor tell me, “don’t make it overly complicated, a C is easier to get than you think!”. Just by adopting that attitude and working on how we can improve, squeezing the lemon on questions to showcase our ability, and giving more tangible communication strategies - that is key

- Rebecca

I am not a person who likes languages - I even struggle with my native English. The tutors at LRDG challenged me and made me think, which assisted in my learning. They all encouraged me to work on immersing myself in the language and culture.

- Conrad
