  • Language Learning Program is one of the components of the Continuing Education of the University of St. La Salle.  It is built on four main methodological and pedagogical pillars that are fully integrated with each other in all the courses. 

    • Pillar 1 involves Guided Discovery Learning which is a way to develop the language acquisition skills of the learners by using a more natural process in learning a language. It benefits the cognitive, linguistic and social aspects of the learner.
    • Pillar 2 focuses on Grammar Progression which includes learning the rules of grammar in a spiral progression that allows the learner to revisit the rules as the need arises. It also involves the functional use of English and grammar.
    • Pillar 3 gives importance to the Individual Learning Plan, a mechanism to motivate adult learners into self-direction. Activities will be provided to allow the learners to explore their skills and to analyze their experiences.
    • Pillar 4 emphasizes the need to have an international standard when it comes to teaching and learning English.  The LLP sees the need to adapt the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) design. Hence, the program will offer authentic activities and assessments that will further the language acquisition of the learners.

  • Certified Professional Coder Program
