You Want To Speak Another Language
I help people speak in just 4 months
I work with people like you who want to speak a foreign language but hate studying. Who traditional learning doesn`t worked for. Who feel frustrated that time is passing and they still can`t speak.
Who don`t want to rely on teachers and go to boring language classes. Forced to suffer topics they have NO interest in, and spend months memorizing word lists and writing out grammar rules.
I hope my Mother-In-Law sees that testimonial because she`s always teasing me about my accent.
I don’t Teach You a Language.
I coach you how to learn and work with you one on one to fluency and beyond.
There is always more to learn, maintaining a language is just as challenging as learning it.
Guiding you as an individual. Not prescribing that there is only one way to learn but understanding that we all learn differently so the approach needs to be personalised.
No two people learn in the exact same way. For that reason most language classes are OUTDATED in approach.
Whether you work on your target language independently or with a teacher I can help. What I offer is both different and complimentary to a language teacher.
Often teachers teach in the way they were taught, or what works for them. Few people are coaching others on how to learn. To figure out what type of learner they are, their best learning style`s, and how to become independent learners.
A Personal Journey
Language learning is a personal journey. It`s difficult to learn a language. Being coached on how to learn is just as important, if not more so than learning the actual language. It can greatly affect, for better or worse, your feelings and perception of it and your ability to succeed.
THERE`S NO RIGHT OR WRONG, forget what you were told at school.
I Help You Find Your Own Unique Path.
My coaching relationship with my clients is different to a teacher/student relationship. It is of equal status and puts them in charge of their learning. This works well for adults who want to learn without feeling like they have gone back to school.
When I work with a client the first thing I do is
- Ask what your motivation for learning is.
- Work out the blocks in your learning and where they come from.
- Help you draw up a daily learning schedule personalised to your routines, strengths and interests.
- Help you stay accountable and on track with YOUR goals.
- Help you manage your study and know when to change methods and direction.
- help you find the right type of tutor for you should you want one.
- Help you find native speakers to practice conversation.
- Help you find the best type of resources for your style of learning.
- Help you work on your self confidence so you actually USE the language.
Then further down the road I,
- Help you adapt your approach because it will change as you progress.
- One you reach fluency I guide you through how to maintain the language.
You Must Put In The Work
I don`t have a magic wand, though if someone wants to gift me one that would be great! Learning a language requires work but that doesn`t mean it can`t be FUN work. I show you how to make it fun by modeling it around your hobbies and interests.
What If I Don’t Speak The Language You’re Learning?
Because I` m teaching you how to learn and not the actual language it does not matter.
Most people choose to study the actual language on their own with my guidance and to use a tutor to explain grammatical terms, or colloquialisms if and when they struggle to understand on their own.
You Have An Advantage An Me
What a strange thing to say you might think but I wish I`d known years ago what I know now. It would`ve made all the difference. Hey I might even speak at least 4 languages now.
If there`d been someone like me who could have guided me that would`ve saved me a lot of time and frustration. Who could help me realise my best ways of learning and where I was going wrong. Help me through dips in motivation. Make sure I achieved my goals. Share tips and insights. Help me set a clear path. Well that`s what I do for my clients.
If you`re frustrated with language learning, want to START SPEAKING RIGHT NOW, and know more about coaching than don`t be scared head over to the CONTACT PAGE page to request a FREE “Get Me Speaking” no obligation consultation with me.

My Clients would say I`m warm, friendly, approachable, and fun loving. That I have a wickedly good sense of humour. You might decide I`m way too scary or you might decide I`m your new best friend, let`s see!
I`m really nice I promise.
