Coaching Session 2 _ Introduction to the Bidirectional Translation Method
You will learn the principles of Luca’s famed Bidirectional Translation Method. Built from the ground up to be the most brain-friendly way to acquire the core of any language, Bidirectional Translation is the very same method that Luca uses to begin learning languages. After this session, you will understand the “big picture” of the method, and gain insight into how the method works with your memory to create a solid and long-lasting “language core.”

Coaching Session 3 _ Adapting the Method to Your Learning Style
You and Luca will work together to tailor the Bidirectional Translation system to the way in which you work best.

Coaching Session 5 _ Building the Four Skills of Language
