Improve Your French Language Skills and Reach Your Professional Goals

In Canada, a strong command of both official languages is required to advance to managerial and executive positions, especially for jobs in areas where many people speak French as a first language in bilingual designated areas like Ottawa, Gatineau, Montreal, and other main cities.

Learning French will expand your horizons, let you experience the joys of French culture in everyday life and help you take your career to new heights, as more than half of manager and director-level positions require a minimum of BBB.

To ascend to the highest professional levels in both the public and private sector, non-native French speakers need to acquire an in-depth understanding of French grammatical structures, syntax and vocabulary to communicate effectively in any situation.

With LRDG’s FSL programs, meeting the language requirements of bilingual positions is within your reach!

The three pillars of our methodology

There are several strategies to pass the Canadian government French exam, often referred to as the Second Language Evaluation (SLE). These include enrolling in a specialised language training program like those offered by LRDG, regular practice and immersion in French, and, lastly, simply understanding how tests are administered and best practices.

The French proficiency test for Canada is referred to as the Second Language Evaluation (SLE). This is a test used to assess a public service job candidate or employee’s proficiency in their second official language (English or French). The SLE consists of three parts: reading comprehension, written expression, and oral proficiency, in that order,

SLE tests are graded with three proficiency levels: Level A, Level B, and Level C. In this system, Level C is the most advanced level. The level obtained in writing, reading, and oral evaluations are used to create a candidate’s profile, such as BBB or CBC.

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.

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.
