LRDG: 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.

Teaching VS. Tutoring for Foreign 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. 

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. 

The three pillars of our methodology are:

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

On top of that, you get a team of four continuously guiding you and supporting you towards language learning success. They are:

  • A product specialist
  • A personal tutor
  • A pedagogical advisor
  • A student success agent

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!
