Coaching helps clients take the skills they are learning and integrate them into their daily lives. A coach will help clients identify their goals and then support, challenge and hold those clients accountable so that they attain and surpass their goals.

Language coaching encourages clients to explore any blocks that might be impeding their progress, such as lack of confidence, discouragement, resentment, and lack of knowledge about how to learn. It’s imperative to address these issues so that the client can move beyond them and succeed in the learning process.
