Over two years ago, I achieved an important goal of mine: to become a certified Neurolanguage Coach®. But what does that mean, and, more importantly, what does it mean to my clients?
If the title Neurolanguage Coach® is new to you, that’s okay. Let me explain a few differences between traditional language teaching and Neurolanguage Coaching®, so you will know what to expect and share some of the excitement that I feel about this new journey.
First off, most of my explanation is inspired by Rachel M. Paling’s article, The Differences between Language Teaching and Language Coaching. She is the founder of Neurolanguage Coaching® and owns the accreditation company that certified me as a Neurolanguage Coach®. She is a brilliant woman, and I’m thankful that she paved the way for teachers like me to become more than just a person who lectures on grammar and passes out worksheets!
Let me explain a little about Neurolanguage Coaching® and what it means to you:
With Neurolanguage Coaching®, you (the coachee) take on a very active role.
Instead of simply taking notes and reciting information when called upon, this style of learning calls upon you to be active and engaged in the language learning process. Because you have worked with the me from the beginning to develop your own specific grammar and long-term language goals, you are more motivated and committed to learn.
