This chapter presents a longitudinal case study of a single adult learner of French in New Zealand, which focuses on the role of ‘coaching’ in the self-directed learning process. The results of the study highlight the benefits of the flexible and ongoing nature of such an approach to supporting independent learning, with the coach playing a role not only in assisting with the processes of needs analysis, goal setting and programme planning, but also in asking questions and discussing the process of self-directed learning.

Keywords:   self-directed learning, coaching, goal setting, needs analysis, programme planning
