Introducing Efficient Language Coaching and Neurolanguage Coaching Certification…
Hi everyone, I’m Rachel Paling and I’m the founder and Director of Efficient Language Coaching. I’d like to tell you more about our Neurolanguage Coaching courses. Neurolanguage Coaching® is very much about bringing neuroscience and coaching into the language learning process.
We are the ones who are now transforming and implementing the neuroscience. Everything about Neurolanguage Coaching is about being brain-friendly. Brain friendly in how we communicate and how we act.
Everything that we do, the structure, the delivery, takes into account how the brain learns, how the brain functions, how the brain reacts. So on our Neurolanguage Coaching courses, we start off with coaching and we start off with the question of what is coaching and how can we bring coaching into language learning.
And this means that, right from the beginning, I get you to feel, walk, talk, breathe and be a coach. I get you to really understand how different language coaching is compared to teaching. It really is extremely different. We go from being a directive teacher to understanding how to be non-directive and brain-friendly in our communication.
Then we go onto the neuroscience and take that journey into the brain. We start off in very, very simple terms when going into scientific explanations.
We as educators need to understand that just one drop of cortisol in the brain could totally affect the learning process. So we have to know how to be sensitive. Neurolanguage Coaches know how to coach people around barriers and blocks and really help people to come into that learning process but tailored to that person, because we know that every brain is different.
After the neuroscience, we bring that together with the Neurolanguage Coach process. We put the process into a definite structure. There are so many people doing Language Coaching these days. But what many, many people miss is real structure and process. Neurolanguage Coaching has a definite structure. Structure right from the beginning to the end.
We create a unique first session with our learners and on the course you learn how to build up that first session, step by step – getting everything you need from the learner. Then we look at how to create the roadmap forwards with your learner. Then we look at the goal review.
Finally we go into how to deliver brain-friendly grammar conversations so that the learner is coming into a very relaxed conversation about grammar and instantly getting it. That’s the idea. This course is for teachers of language. We always ask that the teacher of language either has a diploma, a degree or evidence of teaching with at least three years language teaching experience. This is because, on this course, we don’t teach you how to teach language. What we do is we transform the process. So I need to know that you know how to deliver language learning and that you really understand languages.
