Méthodologie

Our blended methodology was developed by the industry most qualified pedagogical and technological advisors resulting in effective, accelerated language acquisition at a lower cost. When your learners begin the training process with us, they will be in good hands and actively managed on their path to success.

LRDG’s methodology consists of 3 strategic components:

SELF-STUDY TRAINING
Comprehensive, quality content for effective learning

LRDG’s self-study training is based on structured DVD-based  and online content, enabling students to learn anywhere, anytime. Both our DVD and online software programs offer rich pedagogical content and allow learners to study from the comfort of their home, at the office or on the go.

The software programs Pour l’amour du français and For the love of English consist of 15 modules covering the entire language spectrum from beginner to advanced levels (A-B-C of the Canadian Federal Government). Our online software program follows the same pedagogical excellence  as the DVD software and features exclusive interactive content, including games and quizzes to help reinforce language acquisition. The online software is the newest addition to our language training solutions and was specifically designed in line with today’s Web-2 technology trends and need for a highly user-friendly, cost-effective and flexible solution.

Our software programs are in full compliance with the Government of Canada’s language proficiency levels.
A level: modules 1-8 | B level: modules 7-12 | C level: modules 11-15

PERSONALIZED TUTOR SUPPORT
Our tutors – more than teachers.

LRDG’s tutors are linguistic experts who are carefully selected to provide personalized support to learners. They not only bring a human approach to the language acquisition process but also empower learners to develop and maintain their oral skills. Learning a new language requires not only time; regular and timely practice is the essential ingredient to retention and excellence in communication. This is where our valuable expert tutors bring the learning experience to a whole new dimension.

The tutor’s main role is to motivate and guide the student throughout the entire learning process by providing personalized coaching, oral interaction and progress reporting.  This enables the learners to put into practice software-based acquired knowledge and greatly improve their confidence and oral skills. The tutor evaluates the learners’ progress continuously and adapts the content to better reflect their strengths and weaknesses.
