This is the third in a new series of podcast episodes about brain-friendly language learning. When I began teaching English as a Foreign Language, I intuitively used my coaching skills so I began research language coaching. Just before the USA went into lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic, I enrolled in Rachel Paling‘s course to become a certified Neurolanguage Coach®.
