French as a Second Language (FSL) Courses

Our FSL classes help learners of all levels develop their French language knowledge and skills to get their CBC proficiency levels and move their career to the next level.

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!

Teaching VS. Tutoring for Second Language Learning

Our model 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 on your terms, on your time. 

Learning a second language should be personal, interactive and evolving, in a way that gives students the chance to explore concepts, participate in discussions and overcome hurdles in a supportive and nurturing environment. 

The three pillars of our methodology

  • 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!
