What is Language Coaching?
The Language Coaching Certification programme is aimed at language teachers and trainers who wish to enhance their work with a new and highly efficient approach: Neurolanguage Coaching®.
Naturally, this raises the question: What do we mean by Neurolanguage Coaching®?
This is how ELC Global Ltd. defines Neurolanguage Coaching®:
“Neurolanguage Coaching® is the efficient and fast transfer of language knowledge and skills from the Language Coach to the Language Coachee with sustainable effects facilitated by brain based coaching and coaching principles and neuroscience.”
