Language Coaching

Differences between Training and Coaching?

Learning requires training, excellent practice in all situations requires coaching.

  • Understanding various accents: A member of a worldwide organisation is faced with a lot of foreign accents and has sometimes difficulties to understand some of them. A "weakness" that could lead to missing some crucial information...
  • Problems linked with active use of a foreign language: An individual who uses very well a foreign language on paper or in real life situations when he or she is on the receiving end end (also known as a “passive”) actor but faces multiple types of problems when using it actively (also known as “active”).
  • Refining oral expression: When a lecturer, during a conference, a briefing or even a simple meeting in front of an audience does not manage to successfully pass a message across, because of the structure of the language used or the choice of vocabulary.
  • Making a difference: During an immersion in a new country, it is very often difficult to appreciate the many occasions where the cultural differences are making an impact on the image given. Very often body language is different, signs used, colloquialisms are paramount and appear everywhere in daily life. A real final threshold on integration in a country would be the possibility to feel relaxed, to enjoy humor, or even to be able to generate jokes.

Similarly to Language Training, our Language Coaching Programme will be tailored to the specific needs of the student
