关于LADO

LADO国际学院已经帮助全世界各地的学生学习外语35多年。 LADO直观的“整体方法”成功掌握了语言和学习文化, 从细小和认识方面更好地理解外语。

我们的任务

我们通过由我们的Dr. Robert Lado创造的英语作为第二语言的高质量的、 用于学术应用的和老师培训项目的方法来帮助我们的学生实现他们的梦想。

我们的历史

“How boring the world would be if there was only one flower, so how boring it would be if only one language...”

"Language is intimately tied to a man's feeling and activity. It is bound up with nationality, religion, and the feeling of self..."

一些人可以改变世界;。。。那就是Dr. Robert Lado 做的! 他改变了人们学习英语的方式。

Dr. Lado是在美国出生的,但是他在开始上学前离开美国。 作为一个年轻成年人, 他选择回国并高强度地学习英语。 这个经历激发了Dr. Lado在外语教育的实用方面的毕生兴趣。

他获得了奥斯汀德克萨斯大学的硕士学位和密歇根大学的博士学位, 并在同一年成为了密歇根大学英语语言学院的主任。

Dr. Lado在乔治敦任语言文字和文学学院任第一任校长10多年。在1977年他从乔治敦大学退休并且开设他自己的语言学校, LADO国际学院。

Dr. LADO是“整体方法”的创造者, 是学习一门语言最有效的方法之一。 在这35多年间, 这个方法已在70多个国家中被成功用来教授数以万计的学生。

在LADO我们像家庭一样对待你并且你的家庭会永远在乎你!
