Fatima Roussado

Fátima Roussado | Portuguese as a Foreign Language teacher, Portugal

“LCC was a fantastic and enriching experience. It was a breath of fresh air. My coachees feel both liberated and committed. Also, I feel that they are truly aware of where they are right now in the learning process. Thank you, Rachel, for the Brain Friendly Grammar Conversations. This is such an important tool when delivering, for instance, the Subjunctive in Portuguese. Hearing my clients say “I want to know more about this” is brilliant!”

Evgeniya Medvedeva

Evgeniya Medvedeva | Mandarin Chinese/ Russian/ ESL tutor, The Russian Federation

“I found this course very inspirational, it motivated me to look differently not only at my way of teaching, but also at my general attitude. I became a better listener and I am asking more powerful questions, this had a significant impact on my interpersonal relationships. I am definitely better equipped to help language learners to achieve their goals. I also witnessed the “aha moments” which my clients are experiencing, and it’s amazing”

Cheryl Williams

Cheryl Williams | Language Teacher, Malta

“The Neurolanguage Coaching Certificate was the perfect option for my clients and I. I was specifically after something forward thinking.  Neurolanguage Coaching offered that. Through Neurolanguage Coaching we use a ‘brain friendly’ approach. There are many tools that we learn which really help the clients come out of ‘drama’, negative ‘limbic’ reactions and help prioritize their tasks. The approach is so brain friendly that my coachees don’t feel that they’re ‘in’ training, and at the same time their brain is developing the language skills much faster. It’s very professional, effective and efficient. In addition to this I’m seeing the positive impact it’s starting to have on their personal lives too. It’s a win-win situation. Also, in Europe being a fully qualified Advanced Neurolanguage Coach under an accredited institution such as the ICF is an additional asset. “

Monika Vogel

Monika Vogel | Language Teacher, Switzerland

“Participating at the LCC course was just what I needed to give a new impulse to that moment of my own professional transition. I could feel the positive energy flow. I started to tailor every grammar lesson and left aside books and classic exercises. Giving more space and a more active role to my learners, improves their motivation and strengthens their commitment and self-confidence. I feel empowered to continue and improve my way to deliver highly personalized language training”
