Overview

Over the last few years, coaching has been a buzz word in the world of ELT. There is a natural crossover between teaching and coaching. Indeed, many teachers intuitively apply aspects of coaching without even knowing they are doing it. As language teachers, good, clear communication is what we aim for, in both how we teach and what students learn.

Simultaneously, communication is a key ingredient in the coaching relationship. Judging by the number of coaching-related talks at conferences, articles in teaching journals, posts on blogs and downloads of (free) ELT coaching-related eBooks, there is a clear interest in the topic within our field. However, this book is not about how to coach. Nor is it about how to teach. It is about applying coaching principles to teaching. It borrows from the world of coaching certain tools and exercises which lend themselves to training language.

With this in mind, the 26 activities in this book are designed around coaching techniques, with the language learner in focus. They have been written by two qualified coaches who are also experienced EFL teachers. Coaching is all about communication on multiple levels, including the linguistic and the interpersonal. A successful coaching relationship is built on trust and a supportive working relationship between the coach and coachee.

Coaching is non-directive, there is no telling; instead, the focus is placed on the coachee – through the process of answering the coach’s questions – finding their own solutions, resolutions, decisions or ideas to overcome or navigate a challenge or to make a change.
