What is Neurolanguage Coaching®?
Neurolanguage Coaching® incorporates the latest findings in neuroscience as well as principles and tools from coaching into the traditional process of language teaching.
Through neuroscience, we know that no two brains are the same, so neurolanguage coaching® is tailor-made learning to clients´ needs, without books, but with clear and structured targets to achieve in defined periods of time.
This method and approach create the perfect learning conditions for the brain leading to faster, more efficient, sustainable and cost-effective results. Our Language Coaches are the FIRST in the WORLD to be certified as INTERNATIONALLY ACCREDITED LANGUAGE COACHES (accredited by the ICF – International Coach Federation).

21st Century learners are different. We’ve all changed. Adults, teenagers, children. We are actually learning in a totally different way.
We have seen learners who are very frustrated, who are embarrassed and are almost afraid to speak another language.
Neurolanguage Coaching is about bringing coaching, science and neuroscience into the language learning process.
It is about having coaches located worldwide who have trained to understand how the brain learns functions, how the brain learns, how we associate and connect those languages, and how embarrassment and fear can actually shut the brain down.
What our clients have to say
Wonderful and Highly-Professional
Liz has been a wonderful and highly-professional teacher, leading our English lessons efficiently and proficiently. Her tailored approach has proved to be successful, and we really got along during our conversations. I’ve really enjoyed practising English with her, trying to stay on top of things and following her tips on how to improve my vocabulary and my knowledge of idiomatic expressions and phrasal verbs. I take the rap for any mistake in this review and I presume it will be hard for me to find another teacher like Liz!!
Dynamic, motivating and committed
Helen coached me in English when I was preparing to take an international job. She was instrumental in building my confidence to move into working in English. Dynamic, motivating and committed, Helen is a wonderful coach.
Informative, practical, and fun
I was new to Portuguese, and did not consider myself a natural language learner. Marília’s love of language and teaching, and her dedication to her passion, made lessons with her a delight. Every lesson with her just flew, the lessons were informative, practical, and fun. I never wanted the classes to end. Every class was designed to build on the last lesson, and Marília was open and happy to discuss learning challenges. After 5 weeks and almost daily lessons, I was amazed at what I had learned, and (2 months) later back in Australia, what I have retained. She is an outstanding teacher, outcome and detail focused. Marília often talked about the teacher / student relationship being a flexible partnership, that both contribute to for a common outcome, and to the individual goals also. I could not agree more. If you are lucky enough to have Marília as your teacher, it will be an experience you will never forget. I hope to be able to engage her again when I return to Brazil. She is simply the best you will find. (Christopher Bayliss, Australia – Marília Araujo Schmitz’s coachee)
Wonderful ideas to carry out in class
I´ve had the opportunity of taking Coaching sessions in Spanish with Catarina, and they proved to be really useful. Together we dived into the world of some of my high school students with entangled personal lives, which affect their process of learning at school. We got wonderful ideas to carry out in class, so the students could perceive different ways of learning as well as dealing with their attention and focus on their tasks and activities. (Catarina Mendes, Certified Professional Coach and Trainer, Portugal – Nora Vergara’s coachee)
Classes tailored perfectly according to your expectations
Struggling to find a course in Catalan that would meet my needs, I turned to Skype classes, and was lucky enough to get in touch with Mònica. She tailors the classes perfectly according to your expectations and previous knowledge, in a way that no course can match. With a great ability to create a learning environment that is encouraging and positive, Mònica’s enthusiasm and creativity turns learning into pleasure. Learning, and starting to speak, a new language has never been as easy, fun and fast. If you are looking to improve your Spanish or Catalan skills I can only urge you to contact Mònica. You will not regret it.
The Differences between Language Teaching and Neurolanguage Coaching ®
Language teaching classically places the learner in a passive role, in Neurolanguage Coaching ® the learner becomes much more active and takes much more responsibility for his/her own learning process. The notion of “ownership” becomes key, and the learner then finds him/herself empowered as his/her master/owner of the process. This in turn creates much more motivation and commitment to the whole process, as in the end, it boils down to the learner taking responsibility for the learning and the learning process.
Language teaching is much more directional, instructive and mandatory, language coaching assumes a more flexible, adaptable process, which is absolutely non-directive, but flows more through equal status conversations and dialogues, allowing the coachee to assimilate and then put the knowledge into practical use immediately.
