Nuestra Historia

“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..."

Algunas personas pueden cambiar el mundo...y eso fue lo que hizo el Dr. Robert Lado! Cambió la forma en que el mundo aprende Inglés.

El Dr. Lado nació en los Estados Unidos, pero se fue del país antes de que empezara la escuela. Como adulto joven, regresó y estudió intensamente Inglés. Esta experiencia despertó su interés del Dr. Lado por toda su vida en los aspectos prácticos de la enseñanza de lenguas extranjeras.

Recibió su maestría en la Universidad de Texas en Austin y su doctorado de la Universidad de Michigan, donde, en el mismo año, se convirtió en el director del Instituto de Idioma Inglés.

Por más de 10 años, el Dr. Lado sirvió como el primer decano de la Facultad de Lenguas y Lingüística en la Universidad de Georgetown. En 1977 se retiró y abrió su propia escuela de idiomas, Instituto Internacional de LADO.

El Dr. LADO es el creador de la metodología "Enfoque total", uno de los métodos más eficaces de aprender un idioma. Durante más de 35 años, este enfoque ha sido utilizado con éxito para enseñar a millones de estudiantes en más de 70 países.
