Sounds good – So how can we reach this state in English?

  • Through a deep exploration of your emotional responses in situations where you use English
  • Analysis of your common thoughts and beliefs about your capabilities in English (moderating those beliefs to find supportive and beneficial ways of thinking)
  • Focusing on your fundamental motivation for gaining confidence and feeling good about your English
  • Setting clearly defined objectives
  • Focusing on specific activities which will help you to reach your objectives
  • Creating a personalized action plan to identify exactly how you will obtain your goals
  • Encouraging autonomous learning and practise in order to optimize the learning process
