Our eBooks are designed to be read using the free Callan app. You can download the Callan app for PC, Mac, iOS or Android platforms by using the relevant. This method we are using for learning English is called the Direct Method. method the student thinks and speaks directly in the new language.

It's very interactive and gives students endless opportunity to practice what they are learning in a real and enjoyable way. It's speaking-based and reflects the need of most students to develop their ability to use English in order to communicate verbally. There is relevant writing and reading practice, too, but up to Unit 8 there are 18 units that's used as an aid to building up fluency and comprehension.

Even at advanced levels the emphasis is on the spoken language. I speak 4 foreign languages with varying degrees of fluency, from near-native to adequate for travelling, and see the benefit of the Speak Your Mind very much in terms of the things I know I have had to learn. I know that Callan lacks those qualities. For anyone interested, they can visit my school website Probably the scariest is creating the illusion that students WILL achieve if only THEY want to, so if they do not succeed it is their own doing, they did not want bad enough.

Well, Mr Callan seems to me a controlling personality, with other very unpleasant traits as we read above from other entries, disliking professionals in the field of English teaching, patronising towards both teachers and students, insulting their intelligence, etc, etc.

Would we trust sb who likes adding numbers to teach us Maths, or someone deeply interested in medicine to operate on us??? A bit of an exaggeration? I can understand their motives but maybe it is time for an equivelent of a Hippocrates's oath for teachers. I have taught in Poland many years ago and am sorry to see that the fashion for "fashions" still exists and going strong!

Despite the high intellectual status of Poles and their demand for professionalism. However it is so OLD! There is nothing wrong with old yet we are past the times of teaching only according to one method, where "sth is good and another not good", treating learners as non critical entities. In my very long professional career I have taught according to many methods, all of which had a solid grounding in Pedagogy, Androgody, theory, etc, however the Callan method has disregard for the work and research within the field, is out dated and seems fundamentally floored with no understanding for Reflective Teaching one of the key elements of modern methodology and present teacher training!

Callan's method is not rocket science and any practitioner will teach speaking and listening with the use of similar techniques, but this method is based on control, dependence on the tutor and does not create an environment for the learners to create "their own speaking" even if it means making mistake. True, Mr. Callan's personality is quite clear from the method.

I picture him sitting in a wing-backed chair sipping cognac by a fire, wondering how the world will ever survive political correctness, and reminiscing about the days when you could say what you wanted without fear of criticism. He is old fashioned and perhaps morbid and misogynistic.


The method is what it is though. Teachers are not supposed to mess with it by Mr. 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. I change the order of some things and expand on things and omit some things.

You should only do this when you have some experience with the method, but the fact is, some adjustment may be needed depending on who you are teaching. 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. 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.

Callan Method Stage 01 Lesson 1

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.

Welcome to Callan Online service.

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.

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.

Account Options

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.

Callan Method 1

The revision with Callan is automatic and systematic. Every day you do a lot of revision and then learn some new English.

This is all written into the Callan Method; it happens automatically. Correcting your dictations With the Callan Method, there is little or no homework to do, but it is very important that you correct your dictations. These are printed in your book and so you can easily correct them at home, on the bus, or wherever. It is important to do this because it helps you to learn the written forms of the words you have already studied in earlier lessons. For this reason, the teacher may not ask you many questions.

You can sit and listen, and become more familiar with the method - the speed, the questions, the correction etc. He also runs Callan Publishing Limited, which supplies Callan Method books to schools all over the world.

Robin Callan grew up in Ely, Cambridgeshire, England. In his early twenties, he went to Italy to teach English in Salerno. He became very interested in the mechanisms of language learning, and was sure that he could radically improve the way English was taught. He remained in Italy and started to write his own books for teaching English. He used these in his own classes and, over the following ten years, gained an immense amount of practical experience and a reputation for teaching English quickly and effectively.

When he returned to England, he opened his school in Oxford Street. As the method became more and more popular with students, the school grew and moved to larger premises. Robin continued to write his Callan Method books, and today the method is used by schools all over the world.

Robin Callan has always been passionate about English literature, especially poetry. For this reason, he bought The Orchard Tea Garden in Grantchester, near Cambridge, which attracts thousands of tourists each year.Yes, I generally wake up early The teacher is constantly asking questions, so you are hearing and using the language as much as possible. So, what exactly happens in a Callan Method lesson, and how does it work? You learn quickly because you are always surrounded by English.

Callan has a powerful directness that in the hands of an enthusisatic 'lesson conductor' appeals to many, although how long the appeal will endure is another matter.
