Language coaching is essential at every stage of language training. Its purpose is to alleviate any blockages, give students self-confidence and help them to rid themselves of negative fear of failure. It is important that they allow themselves to make mistakes. The more confidence grows, the better the language level will evolve. Important questions are: how do I sound? Can I be understood and am I clear enough? Do I use the right words in the right situations?
