A leading language provider with the resources and staff to meet the needs of ESL students across Canada

Since 2002, we have been innovators in the language industry, which is why we have become the leading language training provider to the Government of Canada.

Our online language training is different from traditional classroom training. In contrast to the way teaching English as a second language is approached in secondary schools and higher education institutions, we focus on the individual needs of each learner.

Through an active, hands-on approach, our online training gives individuals and small groups the ideal environment to develop their second language skills. Our pioneering language training focuses on individual needs, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, which has helped thousands of people read, write and speak English with great proficiency.

Our curriculum can help YOU and YOUR TEAM in all aspects of English language learning.

What You Get with the Course

  • 24/7 access to interactive online learning materials in your portal
  • Tutors available from 7am to 11 pm EST.
  • Oral comprehension and speaking activities
  • Create a schedule with your private language tutor that fits into your everyday life
  • Pedagogical support throughout your whole process
  • Quality control for user satisfaction
  • Progress tracking of each student, with a personalized and elaborate report after each session with a tutor
  • Weekly conversation hubs to prepare you for your SLE exam or for your everyday work challenges
  • FREE SLE Simulation tests throughout your studies

Teaching VS. Tutoring
for Second Language Learning

Our system is different

We focus on individuals and small groups. For every hour of coaching with your tutor, you get three 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 are

  • Weekly practice/self study
  • Experienced tutors
  • Your learning portal

Learning Language: A Personal Experience

For people with a native language other than English, learning the subtleties of English grammar and syntax can be truly daunting. Learning a second language should be personal, interactive and evolving, in a way that is similar to first language acquisition. Our approach helps non-native speakers overcome these stumbling blocks by creating a supportive environment that responds to individual needs.

With a 90% PSC SLE test success rate since 2002, our program has helped thousands of public service employees and second language learners over the years. Choose LRDG and achieve your goals!

ESL (English as a Second Language) classes are designed to tutor non-native English speakers and help them improve their reading, writing, and oral proficiencies.

Learners enroll in ESL sessions or tutoring sessions for various reasons, including personal and professional reasons. In Canada, official language laws require government employees to be proficient in both English and French, in order to serve the public in both official languages.

In an ESL class, learners should expect tutoring to build off of the current language level they are capable of. For LRDG, this means learners are evaluated and provided a personalized learning path and timeline to achieve their specified bilingualism goals. ESL classes can be administered in a variety of formats, including one-on-one training or group lessons, or delivered through an online platform.

At LRDG they are kind, caring, and supportive, yet not afraid to correct you, which is great! I’m very satisfied with the progress I’ve made with LRDG. When speaking with my partner and his family whom are francophone, they have noted there is an improvement in my proficiency and confidence.

Logos Military Family Services

Military Family Services (MFS) has been working in partnership for over four years with LRDG. The whole LRDG team has played a huge role in the modernization of adult second language training for Canadian Armed Forces families. Their language programs are adaptable and of high quality. The program delivery allows military families to learn in the comfort of their homes. This helps increase their confidence with speaking, where the local language is not their first language.

I am now capable of participating in meetings all in French, leading presentations, and giving employee trainings with no problems. Both tutors I had were very good in guiding me and helping me advance. They were very supportive and very accommodating. I also liked the ease of accessing and tracking your learning information.
