Nossa Família

Sobre a LADO

Há mais de 35 anos o Instituto LADO tem ajudado estudantes do mundo todo a aprender Inglês. O método da LADO “Abordagem Total” tem ajudado com sucesso o aprendizado não apenas do idioma mas também da cultura americana.

Nossa Missão

Ajudamos nossos alunos a alcançar seus sonhos oferecendo ensino de alta qualidade nos cursos de: Inglês como Segunda Língua, Inglês para Fins Acadêmicos e de Formação de Professores, inspirados pelas conquistas do Dr. Robert Lado em Linguística Aplicada.

Nossa História

"Quão sem graça seria o mundo se existisse apenas um tipo de flor, seria também sem graça se existisse apenas uma língua..."

“A linguagem está intimamente ligada aos sentimentos e atividades humanas. Está relacionada com a nacionalidade, com a religião, e com a sensação de ser…”

Algumas pessoas podem mudar o mundo... e isto foi o que o Dr. Robert Lado fez! Ele mudou a forma do mundo aprender inglês.

Dr. Lado nasceu nos Estados Unidos, mas mudou-se antes de começar seus estudos. Na juventude, ele retornou e intensificou seu estudo do inglês. Esta experiência o inspirou para estudar os aspectos práticos do ensino de línguas estrangeiras.

Obteve  mestrado pela Universidade do Texas em Austin e  doutorado pela Universidade de Michigan, onde, no mesmo ano, tornou-se diretor do Instituto de Inglês.

Por mais de 10 anos, Dr. Lado atuou como primeiro reitor da Escola de Línguas e Linguistica da Universidade de Georgetown. Em 1977 ele se aposentou e abriu sua própria escola de Inglês, a LADO International Institute.

O Dr. Lado é o criador do método “Abordagem Total”, um dos métodos mais eficientes de se aprender um idioma. Há mais de 35 anos, este método tem sido usado com sucesso para ensinar milhões de estudantes em mais de 70 países.

Aqui na LADO tratamos você como família
e como família sempre lhe daremos suporte!
