English Course for Absolute Beginners With the Callan Method

Improve your confidence in speaking English with the assistance of an innovative, dynamic and interactive method.

These courses can also be funded through the Erasmus+ program. For more
information, please contact your National Agency.

Course overview

For absolute beginners, starting to learn a language can be overwhelming. Traditional methods, like reading grammar books, may not be effective due to a lack of vocabulary. Self-teaching is challenging without feedback on progress.

With the Callan Method, tailored for beginners, learning becomes seamless. As experienced educators, we appreciate the blank slate beginners offer;
no pre-learned mistakes make teaching easier.

In this course, you dive into speaking from the very first minute. Beginning with simple sentences and a limited vocabulary, your speech evolves organically. We progressively introduce complexity, building your
vocabulary and grammar through conversation.

The method is straightforward yet
impactful. Questions target specific words or phrases, and your entire lesson is spent speaking, with every mistake corrected. Repetition solidifies learning, akin to how parents correct their children's mistakes. It's a mistake-friendly environment, acknowledging errors as a vital part of the learning process.

Methodology
Our mission is very simple. We want to help you speak English confidently and without a mental barrier.
We help people speak English confidently and free them of the fear of making mistakes. The Callan Method is a fast and dynamic method that consists of guided conversation with native speakers. Our students learn English actively, practising it during the lesson. The goal of the method is to improve your listening, understanding and speaking skills. The method focuses on spoken language, not traditional, high English.
Callan classes are fast-paced, dynamic and interactive! During a Callan Method lesson, students speak English the whole time, and the teachers are there to correct your mistakes! Repetition makes you more fluent and, most importantly, raises your confidence level and frees you from your fear of speaking.
