STORIES TO READ AND DISCUSS TOGETHER: The I realise stories are designed to help readers acquire essential cognitive, emotional, social and behavioural skills, and to develop mindfulness and resilience from an early age – aiming to nurture the child in all of us.

“In my experience as a LC coach, I have seen how adults can benefit hugely from realising how emotional strains or limiting beliefs may have formed in the course of a lifetime, through no fault of their own. Therefore, the I realise series presents scenarios, immediately relevant to children, but also very familiar to adults who may see them as simplified metaphors of grown-up perceived limitations. In this way, the I realise stories can talk to children as well as adults, helping them understand themselves better, be more mindful and make better choices. E. Betham

STORIES FOR LANGUAGE LEARNERS: All I realise titles can be used in English as a Second Language (ESL) or in foreign language teaching, focusing on the story contents and following a Coaching For Language Learning (CFLL) approach, which is Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and Learner Centered.


Coaching For Language Learning (E. Betham, 2018 – also available on Amazon) describes how LCC is applicable in many language and performance coaching situations.

This book comes with ready-to-use Interactive Projectable Classes (IPCs).

Notes for teachers and learners of English:

The many advantages of a coaching approach for language learning are exposed in the book Coaching For Language Learning (CFLL). This book explains the rationale and provides many examples for CFLL as a very rewarding successful approach in ESL.

CFLL is a content-based approach, with the coach assisting in research or in an activity on a subject of interest to the learner – which is not always of a purely linguistic or grammatical nature. However, the target language is always used as a medium through which something is learnt.

Furthermore, CFLL incorporates professional coaching, as the approach advocates guiding the learners to use their Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness skills so as to enhance self-awareness, such as one’s learning strategies, to improve communicative competence, self-confidence and performance in the process of learning English.

The IPCs provided with this book are intended for Intermediate levels and up.

With the I realise series, more CFLL material is offered, which can be used with children and adults of earlier levels of English. For more information, refer to the I realise Guide; it sets the context for CFLL as one where learners ‘cannot be wrong’ and the coach provides support; and it offers many activities and discussion topics designed to promote self-growth in learners while they are practicing and improving fast in the target language.

Do not hesitate to contact the author for support in using the I Realise series and guide, or in adopting a CFLL approach (with or without the IPCs provided).
