The structure, pace and steps of the language coaching process are determined by the client and their language level, attitude, learning style, needs and goals.

The first session aims at analysing motivation and needs, diagnosing language aims and areas to improve and as a result developing a detailed, step-by-step plan. Later, with the help of language coaching conversations and language tasks, the coach and coachee work together on pursuing the goals and keeping them at the forefront at all times.

The aim of the coaching conversation is for the learner to acquire language that has been diagnosed as important and  to engrave it in long-term memory and usage. The coach will help to establish an environment ideal for learning, while the coaching conversation promotes the assimilation of new information into existing knowledge. ‘Aha’ experiences throughout the conversation provide a continuous sense of success and energise the learner.

During the process it is essential to maintain motivation and attention, to take steps towards both mechanical and mastery goals and to regularly check in on the goal. In every second of the process the client is aware which stage they are at and when the final goal will be reached. This gives the adult learner confidence and security in a process that is entirely under their control in terms of pace, style and content.

Besides creating and maintaining the perfect learning environment, it is the coach’s job to be available as the source of language knowledge. Coaching conversations provide an opportunity for the coachee to discover the language, their own abilities and skills, while specific tasks and conversation about the language trigger the development of new connections in the brain.

Since language coaching is perfectly personalised, there is no syllabus or course material to follow, the coachee writes their own book. They create their own plan in the first, diagnostic session and change it if necessary session by session with their goals and needs in mind.

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.
