In 1960, Dr. Lado founded the Georgetown University School of Languages and Linguistics, where he served as Dean until 1973.

Our homestay program was designed to make our students feel at home while you are away from home. Our students love the places where they stay. LADO International Institute is here to help our students to involve many activities in Washington DC area. We run activities of all variety every week. We also partner with 13 universities including University of New Hamphshire and University of Massachusetts where our students go without taking the TOEFL exam. Many of our students have gone to these universities and are studying there for their bachelor's and master;s degress.
At LADO International Institute, our students learn using a unique methodology developed by Dr. Robert Lado. The Total Approach for teaching and learning English appeals to different learning styles and takes into consideration the native language, culture, and education of each student.
The Total Approach philosophy is divided into three phases which the students experience during their lesson:
During this phase, the students are introduced to the language and learn words and expressions naturally.
Following the Learning Phase, the students assimilate the target language through a variety of activities, experiences, and explanations.
In the final phase, the students develop facility with the language. During this phase, students are given the opportunity to practice and produce the language in a real-life context.
