To English language speakers, wherever you are in the world…
Are you wondering where to go next with your English? Have you reached a plateau, and would like to know how to break through to the next level of empowered communication?
Are you coming to the UK to study at Flying Classrooms? Would you benefit from the opportunity to gain confidence in your English before you arrive in the UK?
Or perhaps you have finished a course at Flying Classrooms, and would like to continue to empower your English from the comfort of your home or office?
If this is you, then…
We are a team of Life, Language and Communication coaches who have partnered with Flying Classrooms to help you form a new relationship with your English. We coach online, meaning you can meet your coach from wherever you are in the world.
While training equips you with the knowledge you need to form sentences (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation etc), coaching aims to discover and unblock the barriers you might have which are impacting your confidence.
As coaches, we help you recognize the judgments you have of your English, and the judgments you feel you receive from others. This means you are able to distinguish between your English as it is, and your opinion of your ability. With this fresh perspective you’ll gain a new-found acceptance of where you are now. With this acceptance comes the confidence to help you grow.
With Norwich Study Centre, we are offering a variety of online courses, each including a balance of 1:1 coaching sessions and pair or group workshops. Every course begins with a discussion about your needs and objectives.
Whether in 1:1 or common-ground sessions or in group workshops, we focus on your needs and work to empower your communication.
Distance coaching doesn’t have to be distant! In 1:1 sessions, you will build a close relationship with a coach who will be with you every step of your growth.
Sessions typically involve:
Group workshops are an opportunity for you to come together with 2-4 other participants for 2 hours of conversation, discussion, discovery and fun, facilitated by one of our coaches.

These unique and very popular workshops are an opportunity for participants to meet others with whom they have ‘common ground’ – a shared interest. The sessions are facilitated by a coach.

The beauty of online coaching is that you can meet your coach from wherever you have a reliable internet connection and a PC, tablet, or smart phone.
We use a fantastic platform that enables us to share an experience as rich and personal as a physical face-to-face conversation. What’s more, coaching online means we have the wealth of the internet as a resource. It’s a real context, for growth in the real world.
We hope to meet you online soon, to begin a new adventure in Life, Language and Communication!

After finishing university, I was desperate to cut loose from my home country and explore the world. My ticket? Becoming an English language teacher. I had many amazing experiences and worked with many wonderful students, in countries as diverse as Japan, Tanzania and Spain, and in environments ranging from primary schools, to businesses, to universities. Fortunately for me, what started simply as a way of travelling the world, also became a career that I loved.
