BLCC (Business Language & Communication Center) often organizes customized language trainings for professionals. Their students are often busy people who want to improve their knowledge of a language in a short amount of time and as efficiently as possible. That is why BLCC offers amongst others the so-called ‘e-kits’, courses which allow students to be in contact with a language coach over the phone or via Skype. Additionally, they are active on the BLCC e-learning platform. This platform not only allows them to do repetitive exercises, but also to record themselves and to send e-mails or texts. The language trainer also coaches them via the e-learning platform.
Language teacher Griet, who has a lot of experience with distance teaching, explains how she approaches e-coaching, what you should be careful with when becoming an e-coach.
