The Callan Method: Why learning the English Method is Best in QQEnglish?
What is the Callan Method?
The Callan Method is a fast, fun, and easy way of learning English that focuses on improving students’ listening and speaking skills. It is the only surviving direct method of teaching English invented in the 1960s by Robin Callan from the UK. The first Callan School of London opened in the UK 50 years ago and is considered the largest private language school in Europe.
Unlike any method of teaching English, the Callan Method allows students to learn English through repetition. This method provides carefully programmed practice to ESL learners with different English levels. In every lesson, English learners can learn new grammar and vocabulary and immediately practice them. Moreover, the Callan Method teaches English learners by giving them a quick review to make sure they remember what they have learned from the previous lesson.
Why the Callan Method is efficient?
Learning English using the Callan Method is probably unique and very different from other English lessons you will ever experience. What makes the Callan Method efficient is because you need to be an active listener and focus during the class.
1. No Free Conversation
During the lesson, you must not sit in silence and there is no free conversation in the class. Clearly, this method encourages you to speak all the time, even when doing reading comprehension and grammar exercises from a book.
In the Callan Method lesson, you must not talk about topics not related to the class, as this will defeat the purpose of the lesson. It is of utmost importance that you learn the target language every after class.
2. Constant and Immediate Correction
What makes this method different from other English methods is that it requires constant and immediate correction. In a Callan Method lesson, your teacher corrects your pronunciation and grammar mistakes, but not in the usual way.
The correction follows a systematic process which includes repeating your mistake first and then giving you the correct answer.
The pronunciation correction is done like this, “NOT loom … ROOM”, “NOT resson… LESSON”, etc.
Unlike other English teaching methods, learning English using the Callan Method requires active listening, focus, and concentration.
3. Learning English at a Normal Speed
Regardless of what level your English is, your teacher in the lesson asks questions quickly. You will practice learning English at a normal speed, like being engaged in a real English conversation with a native speaker.
As you progress to the higher stages, you will soon be able to understand without first translating into your own language. The fundamental idea of the Callan Method is to not let you translate the questions into your own language. This technique hastens your thinking ability in the target language and helps you practice speaking English like a native speaker.
In addition, this method lesson is an engaging way to learn English because there is no time to get bored and be silent. The method enforces every student to focus, comprehend carefully, and speak quickly during the entire lesson.
4. Learning by Repetition
The Callan Method is learning English by repetition. When learning a foreign language, it is very important to hear, see, and use words and grammatical structures several times so you can easily remember them and can use them confidently.
In learning the Callan Method lesson, it is a routine to complete the daily revision first before starting a new lesson. This method follows a carefully constructed style of revision. You need to review first the language you have learned in your previous class to ensure you still remember them. Then, you follow the same process of practice using a new target language, answering questions, and saying the answers and getting constant corrections for any lapses.•
5. Learning new words and grammar structures
Besides repetition, the Callan Method is best for learning new words and grammatical structures. In every class, you can learn the most practical and useful vocabulary and the basic and most complex grammar structures.
However, the Callan Method follows a unique system of teaching you grammar. Your teacher in every lesson teaches you grammar not by giving you exercise but by telling you how to use verbs, nouns, adjectives, etc.
6. No Homework
At QQEnglish, we don’t give you homework after each lesson in the Callan Method. Instead, we make sure that you finish the lesson with the proper guidance and instruction of the teacher.
However, your Callan teacher will remind you to read, review, and practice the target language of the lesson regularly.
