Language Coach Courses

Equipping you to help others learn a new language and culture

  • Are you helping others in their language learning journeys?
  • Do you need resources, knowledge, and tools to better support language learners?

ICCT offers fully online non-credit courses for those who work with on-field language and culture learners. Through active engagement with videos, short readings, personal reflection, practical assignments, and small-group discussions, each course helps current language coaches improve their skills and new coaches get off to a good start.  

We currently offer three courses: “Foundations of Language Coaching,” “Listen Up and Speak Out: Helping Learners Develop Oral Skills,” and "Learner Assessment.” A fourth course, “Coaching Learners for Ministry Language” will be available later. 

Each course is five weeks in length and requires about 4-6 hours per week. Flexibility has been built into the learning experience, allowing you to be online on days and times that are convenient for you. Throughout each course you will interact with other coaches and receive frequent individualized feedback from the instructor. You will also receive multiple learning resources to use with those you are coaching.
