Learners Overview

The Best Formal Learning Solutions

For 20+ years, LDS has been a well-known leader in the design and content of speech improvement programs for adult English, second-language speakers.

Join us in our Online Learner Center!

We’ve been ahead of the curve in offering distance learning programs for more than 8 years!  Currently, online learning is not only an option – it is essentially the primary learning venue!   We may be moving out of the shadow of the pandemic, but everyone has found that online learning in the right hands is very effective.   When we moved our training programs online, we customized  them for active, engaging training.  We take advantage of all the unique elements of video, audio and interactive materials.  In short, we know how to do it well!

The Most Effective Products for Working Solo

If you prefer to tackle speech improvement on your own, LDS will guide your selection of self-study materials. Whether your goal is to improve your North American English accent or to bring an adult ‘polish’ and sophisticated speech patterns to your language skills, we can refine the search.

Let LDS be your first choice in determining how best to begin your accent improvement program.

Contact us for a courtesy brainstorming session and what will work best for you!.   We’ll meet you in our Online Learner Center (OLC) for ESL adults for a quick video chat. Once we hear what your goals are, we can suggest options for you to consider.  

When you’re ready to prioritize your learning efforts for improving your speaking skills, contact LDS & Associates.
