The Second Language Evaluation (SLE) is a set of evaluations used to evaluate a candidate’s ability in their second official language in English or French in reading, writing, and oral proficiency.

The SLE evaluates different levels of proficiency: Level A, Level B, and Level C, with Level C being the highest. Those who cannot achieve this score are assigned an “X.” However, depending on a specific job and its requirements, a candidate may have at least earned Level B or Level C proficiency to qualify.

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.
