What is Language Coaching ?

Play with the languageLanguage Coaching is about implementing what you already know about Danish, French or English in your daily life.

  • Language Coaching focuses on communication rather than the correct grammar, expression, cultural heritage, literature etc. We will touch upon such subjects if they are relevant to your language development.
  • Language Coaching is about your life and how the development of your language skills can make a difference.
  • Together we will set a goal for your coaching program and I will guide, nudge and coach you in achieving your goal. We will use ressources that are relevant and inspiring to you.

Finally, I guarantee that Language Coaching will be creative, playfull and FUN!

How does Language Coaching work ?

Language Coaching focuses on 3 areas:

  1. motivationWe work on the actual practice. You will get to use the language as much as possible in your daily life. I’m committed that we find subjects that are relevant and important to you.
  2. We find your way of learning a language. Perhaps you love competition. In that case we find games to practice grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation or whatever language skills you need to develop.
  3. We find your barriers and make them disappear. We all have barriers when we learn a new language. They can look in many ways, but what is common for them all are:
  • they are created in your head.
  • they are not real even though they may occur as such.

When the barriers disappear you get a new experience of yourself. You will feel confident, relaxed or even free when you speak a foreign language.

Personal Profile

Guldbryllup 062_1My name is Marianne and I live in Copenhagen with my two boys.

My mother tongue is Danish. I speak English and French fluently and I have the basic skills in German and Portugese.

I hold a master degree in Educational Science and French language. I’ve been trained in transformative coaching skills since 2009.

During my studies I worked with kids with special needs. My focus was on language and communication skills. It was fun, creative and playful – and it was such a contrast to studying and learning French. It was like two different worlds!

I often asked myself; what would happen if the two worlds got combined? Would there then be more people learning and studying foreign languages ? And why is it language learning for adults often get boring ?

Well, one of the answers to these questions, is that we tend to forget – or we don’t allow ourselves – to play when we grow up. Furthermore, we often get very significant and serious when learning a foreign language.

As a language coach I intend to combine the two worlds. There are aspects of language learning where hard work is required and there are other aspects where we can make it fun, creative and playful :-)
