COACHING PLAN TO PRACTISE THE LANGUAGE

If you want to reactivate your knowledge of a language, boost your fluency or simply improve your level, Askaway offers a coaching plan focused on authentic language practice. We remove the obstacles to learning that your busy schedule can create and offer you many ways to practise.

A TAILOR-MADE SERVICE

Askaway adapts to your agenda and monitors your progress to help you work through your plan. Every week, the personalised coaching service will select and update your material pack according to your language needs, remind you what you have to do, help you with your bookings, motivate you and support you in achieving your goal.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR TIME

The REACT plan allows you to practise the language frequently and take advantage of what free time you do have. By utilising the small gaps in your schedule, for example when travelling, while waiting, during meal breaks or in gaps between meetings you can practise your speaking, listening, writing and reading. The digital formats of the self-study material and the online videoconference sessions will help you to better commit to your studies.

A COACHING SERVICE IN YOUR POCKET

Via the Askaway website, you can open your private folder to access your tailored listening and reading material, book and access your oral or written online videoconference sessions, or review your errors and language needs in your customised progress reports. Askaway will always be available via all your mobile devices.

Details of the services:

Personalised coaching service: From the moment you begin your plan, Askaway will always be there to help you organise your self-study using the material packs, help you with your bookings of online videoconference sessions and any changes to your schedule. We will motivate you and track your progress.

– Tailor-made material packs: These are uploaded weekly into your private folder. They consist of listening exercises and worksheets, normally in the form of press articles, current news reports, videos, grammar work, general, technical and business-focused texts which represent a total of 1.5hrs of self-study per pack. These are tailored to the interests and needs of each individual learner.

Online practice sessions: These are oral and/or written practice sessions conducted in the target language and are delivered via videoconference or telephone (Skype or call to the learner’s phone line in case of connection failure). They are usually spread over 45-minute sessions. In these sessions, you will discuss the topics studied in the material pack, subjects of your choice or those best suited to your interests and needs in order to motivate you and encourage concentration.

– Post-session feedback: This will be sent to you following your videoconference session and consists of a brief summary of the main language points covered in the session along with any areas that may need further attention.

Customised progress report: This is an updated assessment of your strengths, weaknesses, the achieved skills, maintenance advice and an improvement plan. The report will be updated in your private folder after every 12 sessions. See example.
