    very useful article, I normally use games to motivate my students and to learn new vocabulary.

    This was a good read! I definitely see my own language tutor as a 'coach' as you've mentioned in these top trends and she steers me towards my goals and I hope I can play the same role for my students and keep encouraging them to reach their potential!

    I absolutely agree with the line: "Students can find all the resources online and do self-study but need a coach to show them the right direction and motivate them to reach the goal."
    This is why students come to platforms such as italki. They cannot get real-world interactive experience by reading a grammar book or watching YouTube videos. This is where we, as teachers, become guides, cheerleaders, supporters and morale boosters. I firmly believe in commending students however I can before pointing out areas in which they can improve. It boosts their confidence, which boosts their motivation!

    Thanks! I like the idea of games. I would like to add that creative writing is also a motivating and fun tool.

    As a student (and future tutor) I couldn't agree more. It is very important to consider the students' needs and approach to learning a new language before asking them to do this or that.

    The role of the teacher as the coach is something I have found to be true. The checklist and progress report mentioned here are things I'm in the midst of fully implementing in my classes. Thank you for another good article, italki!
