Callan Method 1 (Student's Book Stage 1 English in a quarter of the time!Th) The teacher in a Callan Method lesson speaks quickly. This is. I need some help for choosing the book and supporting the lesson with Hi I am teaching the Callan method here in peru for about 5 years.

I have some of the material and have tried it out a little bit. I think it can be very effective in terms of equipping students with vocabulary which is very improtant especially at lower levels. However, it does not ask studnts to ever express themselves or their opinion.

It is a little outdated too. I think that the best method to teach is to combine this kind of technique with others depending on how students respond.

I agree with Loxley too.

It all becomes some sort of addictive game. Like Loxley I also worked at a school where they had actually switched from Callan to SpeakYourMind — which seemed like a highly evolved cousin. It kept the structure and the high speaking content, but the question-answer format becomes genuine interaction: Also, the material is interesting and up-to-date and often quite funny.

After about an hour of training I decided not to work there. I really just found the system annoying. I have taught at Berlitz and EFL, using their own textbooks. I have also taught at other schools, using Headway, natural English etc. Recently I was intruduced to the Callan method and have started using it. More for convenience than anything else! The fundamentals of Callan are: So It is neither new nor unique to the Callan method.

I have yet to see that Callan induces full absorption of English language, i. And this includes homework and tasks that put the student into situations where they MUST use what they have been learning! The student s also have to put themselves in situations where they mix with, observe and learn from native English speakers. However I think that basing the whole system on having to repeat exactly what the teacher prompts really limits its effectiveness.

Another huge disadvantage is the material. A lot of the teachers I taught with felt pretty uncomfortable having to teach some of the things that are in the books. A big emphasis is put on question forming, where Callan really falls short which is great because question forming in English is something that many students struggle with and it is such an important part of life! If your teachers believe in what they are teaching, then this energy gets passed on to the students during the classes.

You are quite right, Alextj: I like it because I think it does what it aims to do pretty well. I was looking to see what people had to say about Callan and I stumbled across this blog. Hi, I have been reading a lot about the Callan Method and teaching it for the past 6 months to 3 classes in Vietnam. It is comprehensive and has used statistical information from the top London language schools. It also guarantees that its students will pass the Cambridge First certificate in hours compared to an avg.

The guarantee is that, if a student fails the exam the Callan school will give the student free lessons, up to I think 40 hours, until they pass. Tell me of another course that offers a guarantee like that? From Stage 5 it asks the students to give their own opinions on topics. Also, it is very amusing.

Callan Method 1

All my students find a lot to laugh at in it, which I encourage wholeheartedly. More importantly, I have met ex-Callan school students and not only do they all recommend the course, but they speak pretty excellent English. With good pronunciation. Obviously, if you are born clever and rich with a good ear and memory in this world of ours, you can learn using far more expensive private language courses. Or, if you have an innate ability for language see polyglot you can just learn them from a book.

I do love intellectual snobs not. It is often criticized for being nothing more than a money making venture by the very people who are in the business of making language acquisition a money making venture, aimed at the middle classes with ready cash to spend on their little ones achieving greatness.

An easy target. I give an example: So, its courses are obviously aimed at the upper end of the middle classes. I have met students who have completed their courses and quite frankly I was disturbed at their level of English. Bad pronunciation was my main criticism. This is in no way blaming the teachers. What can a teacher do if his students refuse to do their work? Throw them out of class? The school wants to make money! If any of you are really interested in finding out the mystery of the Callan Method I enclose a link to the above mentioned document.

One last point, behaviorism might have been what inspired it but if you take the time to read Chomsky or Pinker you will find that modern theory of language acquisition has more to do with the Callan Method than most teachers would like to admit. I only wish there was a Callan Method for learning Vietnamese, with 6 tones for every word, you need something like that to learn; whether quickly or slowly!

Gurantee example: This document guarantees John Smith success in the Cambridge Preliminary exam at the end of a preparation of fifty-minute lessons by the Callan Method. If after this number of lessons the exam is not passed, the Callan School will give the student free lessons until he is successful.

If you could re-share the statistical document, it will be greatly appreciated. The link has died. As a Vietnamese now living overseas, I appreciate your dedication and enthusiasm in teaching and improving English for Vietnamese students there. I could not agree more that speaking, especially pronunciation, is the weakest skill of the majority of Vietnamese who would have studied English over a decade! I myself was not a difference.

I finished university degree in Vietnam before studying a master degree in an English speaking country. I barely spoke English in Vietnam, though my grammar was very good.

I spent about 2 hours per day in about 6 months doing this, and then realised my pronunciation has improved dramatically.

Now my brain is free from thinking whether my pronunciation is correct, I can freely absorb more English language to express my ideas more fluently and naturally. While researching how to share my English knowledge to the students, I got to know this Callan method.

Amazingly, it is not quite far different from my own experience. Having experienced and improved my English using own method similar to Callan method, I am convinced Callan is the proper method to teach spoken English for Vietnamese students. With your own experience, it encouraged me more to proceed with this plan. In English: In Spanish: Many thanks in advance! If you have any questions please email me at phoebe.

I watched a video of someone teaching with this method. English in a quarter of the time The Callan Method can teach English in a quarter of the time taken by any other method on the market.

Callan Method 1

The method is suitable for students of all nationalities, and ages. It requires no equipment not even a whiteboard or other books, and can be used for classes at private schools, state schools and universities. It is also possible for students to use the books to practise with each other when they are not at school. In addition to this, students can practise their English online using the interactive exercises, which are available to students who study at licensed schools. Ask your school for details.

The Callan Method in practice A Callan Method English lesson is probably very different from lessons you have done in the past. You do not sit in silence, doing a reading comprehension test or a grammar exercise from a book. Of course, activities like this can help you, but you can do them at home with a book, or in a coffee bar. In a Callan Method lesson, you are busy with important activities that you cannot do outside the classroom.

You are listening to English all the time. You are speaking English a lot, and all your mistakes are corrected.

You learn quickly because you are always surrounded by English. There is no silence and no time to get bored or lose your concentration. And it is also fun!

So, what exactly happens in a Callan Method lesson, and how does it work?

The teacher asks you questions The Callan Method books are full of questions. Each question practises a word, an expression, or a piece of grammar. The teacher is standing, and asks the questions to the students one by one. You never know when the teacher will ask you, so you are always concentrating. The teacher speaks quickly The teacher in a Callan Method lesson speaks quickly. This is because, in the real world, it is natural to speak quickly. This idea of not translating is at the centre of the Callan Method; this method helps you to start thinking in English.

Also, we do not want you to stop and think a lot about the grammar while you are speaking. And do not worry about mistakes.

You will, naturally, make a lot of mistakes in the lessons, but Callan Method teachers correct your mistakes, and you learn from the corrections. When you go home, of course it will help if you read your book, think about the grammar, study the vocabulary, and do all the things that language students do at home — but the lessons are times to practise your listening and speaking, with your books closed!

The teacher says every question twice, and helps you with the answer In the lesson, the teacher speaks quickly, so we say the questions twice. The teacher then immediately says the beginning of the answer. So, for example: Are there two chairs in this room? The teacher will speak along with you all the time while you are saying your answer. So, if you forget a word or you are not sure what to say, you will always hear the next word or two from the teacher.

You should repeat after the teacher, but immediately try again to continue with the answer yourself. You must always try to continue speaking, and only copy the teacher when you cannot continue alone.

Never simply wait for help from the teacher and then copy — you will not improve so quickly. Long answers, with the same grammar as the question We want you to practise your speaking as much as possible, so you always make complete sentences when you speak in the lesson, using the same grammatical structure as in the question.

For example: Correction by imitation With the Callan Method, the teacher corrects all your mistakes the moment you make them. This correction by imitation helps you to hear the difference between your mistake and the proper English form. You should immediately repeat the correct word and continue with your sentence.

You learn a lot from this correction of your mistakes, and constant correction results in fast progress. Contracted forms In the lesson, the teacher uses contractions e. This is because it is natural to use contractions in spoken English and you must learn to understand them. Also, if you want to sound natural when you speak, you must learn to use contractions. Lesson structure Every school is different, but a typical minute Callan lesson will contain about 35 minutes of speaking, a minute period for reading, and a 5-minute dictation.

The reading practice and the dictation are often in the middle of the lesson.

In the reading part, you read and speak while the teacher helps you and corrects your mistakes. In the dictation, you practise your writing, but you are also listening to the teacher.

So, a minute Callan lesson is 50 minutes of spoken English with no silence! No chatting Although the Callan Method emphasises the importance of speaking practice, this does not mean chatting free conversation. There is no time wasted on chatting; this can be done before or after the lesson. Chatting is not a good way to spend your time in an English lesson. First, only some of the students speak.

Second, in a chat, people only use the English that they already know. The Callan Method has none of these problems. All through the lesson, every student is listening and speaking, practising different vocabulary and structures, and learning from the correction of their mistakes. And nobody has time to get bored!

Repeat, repeat, repeat! Systematic revision In your native language, you sometimes read or hear a word that you do not already know.

You usually need to read or hear this new word only once or twice in order to remember it and then use it yourself. However, when you are learning a foreign language, things are very different. You need to hear, see and use words and grammatical structures many times before you really know them properly. So your studies must involve a system of revision repeating what you have studied before.

This is absolutely essential. If there is no system of revision in your studies, you will forget what you have studied and will not be able to speak or understand better than before. In every Callan Method lesson, of course you learn new English, practise it, and progress through your book. However, you also do a lot of revision so that you can really learn what you have studied. Your teacher can decide how much revision your class needs, but it will always be an important part of your studies.

The revision with Callan is automatic and systematic. Every day you do a lot of revision and then learn some new English.Now as it seems the previous entrant is trying a little of that within a strictly controlled "obligatory" environment.

Such feedback is difficult to provide in most classroom situations, as it often interrupts the flow of the lesson, and can make students feel self-conscious. While researching how to share my English knowledge to the students, I got to know this Callan method. Students want to enjoy themselves at school — not sit quietly doing exercises in a book.

Callan's own strong admonition but I have found that it is not the bizzare questions he asks that makes it work, but rather the logic of the method.

He also runs Callan Publishing Limited, which supplies Callan Method books to schools all over the world. How can I find more about it? This number rises to more than in the middle of summer, similar to a small university. So It is neither new nor unique to the Callan method.
