Do you want to learn a language faster and more effectively?
Learning a new language can be challenging. We need to tune into the right mindset, connect with our motivations, find resources, create habits, and the list goes on. If you’re studying a language and feel stuck, at a plateau, and making little progress towards your goals, it’s possible to change that for the better. Maybe you’re not sure about the learning resources you are currently using. Or you lack motivation and discipline to get yourself to study as much as you’d like. Either if you are taking individual lessons, you joined a language course, or if you’re studying on your own. I can help you break through the language barriers that keep you away from your goals 🙂.
I offer Neurolanguage Coaching® sessions, a modern approach that combines recent neuroscience research on how we learn better, with professional coaching practices that follow the International Coach Federation (ICF) standards, and traditional language teaching.

I participated in a seminar program with Walter about developing hobbies in the language you’re learning. I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to sign up for his coaching program. I have to say it was completely worth it. Walter helped me find unique and interesting ways to incorporate Spanish into my everyday life. I like how amenable he is to the ideas of immersion learning – but at the same time, he doesn’t scoff at more traditional methods. That can be a hard quality to find in a tutor/mentor.
After just over a year of learning Spanish, I reached a comfortable level of conversational fluency. I think Walter played an important role in me reaching that goal. And since there’s always room for improvement, I continue to follow Walter’s content so that I’m always al tanto regarding unique and interesting ways to engage with the language I’m learning.

I loved working with Walter and found it enormously helpful. I have been studying Spanish for many years, and Walter was able to quickly identify the areas where I could study much more effectively. Together we created a study plan that has totally transformed my approach to the language. Not only am I learning more, but I’m also having much more fun.

Walter Freiberg is the ultimate cheerleader! Without his knowledge and encouragement, I wouldn’t have signed up for learn-to-draw for beginners classes with instruction solely in Spanish, I wouldn’t be listening to interesting podcasts in Spanish while I cook dinner, and I wouldn’t be curled up in a corner reading “The DaVinci Code” as “El Codigo DaVinci,” all of which have contributed greatly to my language skills. His suggestions have been invaluable.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between traditional language lessons and language coaching?
This coaching program is not like the typical language classes. I’m going to guide you and assist you in the process of learning your target language. This may include grammar and pronunciation explanations, but it’s not exactly like traditional language lessons. I won’t teach you: I’ll help you to learn on your own. My role is to help you tap into your motivations and set your own language learning goals, choose activities and resources to establish solid language learning habits & routines. At the same time, I’ll provide you with resources and information about how we learn languages more effectively.
Can you help me learn ANY language?
I have personal and direct experience with the languages I already know and studied: Spanish, English, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Thai. Other than that, I’m familiar with the different elements and learning strategies for other languages. Chances are, I can help you devise an effective learning plan for your language of choice 🙂.
How many languages can I choose to learn in this coaching process?
Just one at a time😊. It’s possible to learn multiple languages at the same time, but here we’re only going to focus on one. Having said that, the tools and strategies you will learn along this coaching process will serve you for a lifetime of language learning. You will be able to transfer and apply what you learn in this process to other languages.
Do you provide the learning materials I will need to study my target language?
No, I don’t supply language-specific learning materials such as textbooks, courses, or such. I do share plenty of suitable resources, tools, and apps, both with free and paid options. Those that are to be paid are at your own expense.
I have another question…
