What will you learn and achieve?
The biggest asset will be you ending up with a number of new language coaching tools to add to your existing toolkit. These will include tools to assist all stages of a language coaching process (ranging from initial exploration to discovering hidden strengths, potential and realistic LL goals, paths to reach these goals, accountability, stretching out of the comfort zone but staying out of the panic zone etc.), whether you are working one-to-one or with a group.
What you will also notice is the transformation in how much more versatility you will have in application of language coaching in a teaching or training framework.
You will focus on finding answers to the following:
- How can I reach my full potential as a language coach?
- Do I have a USP as a language coach?
- Is it possible for me to identify needs and create room for more freedom together with a group of language learners too?
- How can I manage usage of written input in the class?
- Where can I increase awareness of language learners when tackling challenges by using visual, auditory and kinaesthetic tools?
- How can I increase my awareness of roles, decision-making and responsibility within the corporate language learning environment?
- Can I really make the whole language learning / communication skills development process practical and learner-friendly?
Thirdly, you will be leaving with a sense of having made friends with a number of like-minded professionals who feel passionately about language coaching and who will be able to support your growth continuously, long-term.
