At London Language Institute (LLI), our approach to language learning goes beyond simply memorizing words and phrases from a textbook. We believe in immersing our students in English through a dynamic and interactive learning environment. In our classes, you won’t just passively listen, but rather actively participate in discussions, group activities, and practical exercises that are designed to build your confidence and improve your speaking and writing skills.

As part of our enrolment process, all students are required to take an LLI Placement Test. This test is designed to assess your current level of English proficiency and determine the most appropriate class for you. By placing you in a class with other students at the same level, we ensure that you receive targeted instruction that meets your specific needs and allows for meaningful interactions with your peers.

At LLI, we believe that learning English and French should be an engaging and enriching experience that goes beyond traditional classroom instruction. Our immersive approach and personalized placement process are just some of the ways we provide our students with a wealth of details and opportunities for meaningful language learning.

Study English online or in-person, the choice is yours!

When it comes to learning English as a Second Language (ESL), you may be wondering whether it’s better to study online or in-person. At our esteemed institution, we want to assure you that our full-time ESL program curriculum is of the highest quality, regardless of whether you choose to join us online or in-person.

For those who prefer the traditional classroom experience, our in-person classes take place at our modern institutions located in downtown London and Mississauga, Ontario. Our physical classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, providing a conducive learning environment for our students. You’ll have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with your classmates and experienced teachers, engaging in dynamic discussions and participating in engaging activities that will enhance your language skills.

On the other hand, if you opt for online classes, you can join our virtual classrooms from the comfort of your own home via your computer. Our online classes are not pre-recorded sessions, but rather live, interactive sessions that provide you with the same level of engagement as our in-person classes. Through our cutting-edge LLI Virtual Learning Platform, you can see and hear exactly what our in-person students experience, and actively participate in class discussions by asking and answering questions using your computer microphone. It’s just like being in the room with your fellow classmates!

Moreover, our online classes are designed to be flexible, allowing you to learn at your own pace and schedule. You can access course materials and resources anytime, anywhere, and even review class recordings to reinforce your learning. Plus, our online classes follow the Eastern Standard Time (EST) timezone, making it convenient for students in North America and beyond.

LLI French Course

If you’re interested in learning French, the London Language Institute offers a variety of classes to help you achieve your language learning goals. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an advanced learner, LLI provides a supportive environment and expert instruction to help you build your language skills.

Beginner French Classes:

LLI’s beginner French classes are specifically designed for students who have little to no prior knowledge of the language. These classes are structured to provide a solid foundation in basic vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure. The goal is to equip students with the skills needed to engage in simple conversations and understand basic French language material.

If you’re new to French and looking for a structured and supportive environment to learn the language, beginner classes at LLI are perfect for you. The classes provide a safe and supportive learning environment, with teachers using visual aids and additional resources to help students understand the material and develop their language skills. The classes are also accessible, providing an entry point for students who may feel intimidated by the complexity of the language.

Intermediate French Classes:

LLI’s intermediate French classes are designed for students who have a basic understanding of the language and are looking to improve their fluency and comprehension. These classes focus on more advanced grammar and vocabulary, with an emphasis on speaking and listening skills.

For those who have completed beginner French classes and are looking to continue their language learning journey, intermediate classes provide a natural progression. They allow students to build upon the foundational skills they’ve learned at the beginner level and deepen their understanding of the language. The classes also provide opportunities to practice language skills in real-world settings, which can be especially beneficial for those looking to use their language skills in a professional setting.

Advanced French Classes:

LLI’s advanced French classes are designed for students who have a strong grasp of the language and are looking to refine their skills and deepen their understanding of French culture and literature. These classes may focus on advanced grammar, literature, or other specialized topics.

For students who have reached an advanced level of language proficiency, advanced classes offer a chance to explore French culture and literature more deeply, and to further refine their language skills. They may also provide opportunities to use language skills in a professional setting.
