Course overview

Do you have a problem when you need to speak in English? Does your confidence in speaking suddenly drop when you have to say something in public?
Nowadays, there is more and more pressure to speak English on a daily basis. For the majority of us, understanding English is not an issue. Problems come up when we need to speak, because often our confidence disappears and we go blank. Even the simplest of words fail us, which can be very frustrating and sometimes humiliating.

At Initiative for Education we offer specialized English courses that strongly focus on speaking and improving fluency.

With the Callan Method for English language learning, trained teachers make participants speak from the moment they enter the classroom. Our dynamic and fast-paced method is taught by native speakers who ask participants questions designed for their level. The teachers then assist learners in their answers and correct any inconsistencies in their pronunciation. Participants will also be guided through relevant workshops that will assist in their daily operations.

This Erasmus Plus training course is designed for any member of an educational organisation, be it trainers, school management, administration staff, marketing advisors, etc.

Language proficiency
This Erasmus Plus training course is best suited for those with at least a B1 level of knowledge. All of the exercises and materials will be presented in English. 

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.
