Coaching For Language Learning

Contributed to ‘An Introduction to Coaching for Language Learning’ by Emmanuelle Betham M Ed (Applied Linguistics) with reference to important psychological principles including concepts of ‘locus of control’ (the degree of control or responsibility people believe they can take for their own lives/success.), cognitive behaviour principles and consideration of the biopsychosocial model of health and wellbeing to support optimal learning.


In discussions with Mr Conradie about coaching for language learning he said, ‘I am very excited about Emmanuelle Bethan’s preference to so many psychological theory and principles and the use of these principles to support optimal learning in languages.’.
