Summary/Abstract: The coaching approach finds its justified use in contemporary foreign languagedidactics. The essence of this approach is encapsulated by the belief that learning a foreignlanguage constitutes an element of self-development and as such should reflect the individualneeds and goals of the student. The coaching approach, then, transforms the two most important agents of the glottodidactic process, i.e. the teacher and the student, reimagining the teacher as the coach and the student as the coachee. Such an approach, in turn, invites questions concerning the use of coaching tools in actual language courses. The author presents selected examples of beneficial practices, as well as the possibilities of utilizing coaching tools in foreign language courses.
