My name is Irina Pravet and I’m a language and cultural transitions coach. Basically,
On a language level, I believe each of us is born with an innate ability to adapt to language — to our linguistic environment. It’s our birthright. So I help people connect with learning the language in a joyful, intuitive way, that many of us never experience in the traditional classroom.
On a cultural transitions level, I believe we can make our home and thrive anywhere in the world. As humans, we adapt. It’s what we do and we’ve been doing this a loooong time. The process isn’t instantaneous, as mainstream culture would have us believe. Though it’s easier than ever before to move to the other side of the globe, this fast-paced world does little to prepare us for the internal transitions that follow.
As an entrepreneur in a budding field, my job title is often changing: from coach to speaker, workshop facilitator, writer, vlogger, teacher, guide — or all-around creative. What doesn’t change is my intention: I’m here to help people find inner peace and harmony in the midst of cultural and linguistic transitions.
My work brings together the threads that have run deep throughout my life: transitions, adaptation and belonging (between languages and cultures). You can read more about my story here.
I’m excited to keep pushing the limits of possibility when it comes to multilingualism, multiculturalism and multibelonging — and supporting you in doing the same.
