Language coachingLanguage coaching combines methods of coaching and language teaching to help the speaker of English as a foreign language to complete tasks in English with increased efficiency.

The process itself is personalised and goal-oriented, and takes all aspects of the language as well as the skills and qualities of its user into consideration. These include cultural differences, personal preferences, learning style, learning pace, motivation, strengths and weaknesses.

Language coaching offers a quick and efficient solution for handling tasks in the foreign language. It is extremely beneficial if the speaker has met an obstacle in the path in their language learning or has mastered the language at such a level that it is only minor details that need attention, yet the change could result in visible improvement in the quality of the use of English within a short period of time.

Coaching provides help for those speaking English as a foreign language at a minimum of B1 level whose language use plays a critical role in their job. Language coaching is an ideal solution for them when they

  • are preparing for an English language project (negotiation, job interview, meeting, conference, presentation, etc.)
  • would like to accelerate and make their language learning more efficient
  • are aiming to perfect their learning strategies
  • wish to improve a specific skill
  • are proficient enough but certain areas need perfecting for better performance in their job
  • have an unpredictable schedule that will not allow them to take part in regular classes in the long term
  • are preparing for a trip or an English course abroad and aim to maximise the use of the stay or the course

The process and structure of the language coaching relationship is tailored to the individual’s needs and the goal is formed after a thorough analysis of the client’s language level, skills, attitude, preferred learning style, needs and the aim. The coach and coachee work together on mechanical and mastery goals and base every step on neuroscientific information to ensure learning takes place efficiently and with permanent results.

Language coaching can happen one-to-one or in small groups, in English or Hungarian, but at higher levels the use of the target language is recommended.

The method significantly increases the efficiency of language learning, improves learning techniques and enables the client to become the best language learner and user they can possibly be.
