Do you want to learn a foreign 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 can help you:
- Assess where you’re currently at in your target language
- Define meaningful goals for your language
- Design a reliable and actionable language learning plan (100% personalized)
- Choose a variety of comprehensible and compelling input sources in text, audio, and video format that work for you
- Create language learning habits and routines that you can sustain over time
- Get good pronunciation in your target language
- How to start speaking (or improve fluency) in your language of choice
- How to write better and more accurately in your language of choice
- How to get and use feedback from teachers and instructors
- How to use Anki and other SRS’s on a regular basis
- How to find conversation partners and language exchanges
- How to learn new skills and hobbies in your target language

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does the coaching cost?
I offer 5 session and 10 session language coaching packs. The 5 session pack is $400 (four hundred USD) and the 10 session pack is $700 (seven hundred USD).
Are you going to teach me Spanish?
This coaching program is not a Spanish course. I’m going to guide you and assist you in the process of learning Spanish (or another language). This may include grammar and pronunciation explanations, but it’s not exactly an structured language course. My role is to help you tap into your motivations and set your own language learning goals. At the same time, I’ll provide you with resources and information about how we learn languages more effectively. I will help you design the strategies and habits you will need in order for language learning to happen.
Is this coaching available only for Spanish or I can learn other languages?
I can help you learn Spanish or any other language of your choice (see question below).
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, and Portuguese. Other than that, I’m familiar with the different elements and learning strategies for Asian languages, such as Thai, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, and continue adding new languages. Chances are, I can help you devise an effective learning plan for other languages as well. If in doubt, just ask me 🙂.
How many languages can I choose to learn in this coaching process?
Just one 😁. 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. Even though it is not absolutely essential, I recommend having a budget of at least 100 US dollars for the 10-week period of our coaching, in order to cover the costs of language-specific tutoring, books, audiobooks, apps, or other paid resources.
Can I book just one coaching session instead of a pack? I’d like to see how this works.
I offer a free coaching call to help you decide if this is something for you 😊.
What’s best for me: a 5 session or a 10 session pack?
That depends on many factors: your previous languauge learning experience, your target language, your current goals, etc. We while discuss that during the free call.

What fascinates me the most is the learning process: that is, ‘learning how to learn.’ I love sharing my insights on the process of learning, and to help others become better learners. My purpose is to empower people to develop their potential and achieve their learning aspirations.
I believe human beings are born to learn and improve, enjoy life and make positive contributions to the world. We all have a tremendous learning potential, and I would love to help you unfold yours.
