How can language coaches support language learners?
If you think you have been working with your learners, clients on more than just vocabulary and grammar… language and communication coaching is for you. Help them understand more clearly who they are as language learners, support them with more awareness around their expectations and make tangible outcomes happen for specific goals they set.
What are the key skills you can help develop beyond general communication strategies?
Some of the ones below are language skills, but most of them are not addressed in language classes or communication trainings. Get to the heart of communication and build empathy, EI, and find means to create agile and adaptable learning frameworks for language learners, users in volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous times.
Core soft skills for the 21st century are a must. If you are ready to help language learners master these skills, language coaching is the way forward:
5. Time management
6. Learning agility
7. 4 key skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening)
8. Connecting work-related goals and language learning goals
These are just some of the areas where your learners can experience rapid change and development.
If you wish to build a clientele that appreciates your not just grammar/vocab approach, you're in the right place. Developing the skills above will enhance a number of interrelated areas and your learners will excel with their learning, whether they are adults or teenagers, from all walks of life.
