English Course for Absolute Beginners With the Callan Method

Description

Targeted to A1 speakers. Read more »

At the A1 CEFR level, learners focus on acquiring basic language skills. They can understand and use simple expressions to meet immediate needs, introduce themselves, ask basic questions, and engage in simple interactions.

When you are a real beginner, you don’t even know where to start. It’s pointless to read grammar books because you don’t have enough vocabulary to apply what you have read. Moreover, it’s hard to teach yourself because you don’t know if you are doing a good job or not.

However, as experienced educators employing the Callan Method, we find beginners the easiest to teach because they do not have any pre-learned mistakes.

In this course, you will be learning the correct way to speak from the very start. You will learn how to speak the same way native speakers from English-speaking countries speak.

During the course, you are going to start speaking from the first minute of your lesson. At first, you only learn a few simple sentences using only a few words. With time, the sentences gradually become longer and more complicated, but everything evolves naturally.

Step-by-step, we build up your vocabulary and grammar, and it is all learned through conversation. Every question we ask focuses on a specific word or phrase. You spend the whole lesson speaking and we correct all your mistakes. Every single one!

The Method is simple and makes the lessons stick in your head. The teacher asks you questions and you reply. When you make mistakes, which you most definitely will, the teacher immediately corrects you. Since everything is repeated many times, after the second, third, or fourth go, you will just instinctively know how to pronounce the words.

The method follows the same way your parents corrected you when you made mistakes as a child. You won’t be embarrassed! Those who make mistakes learn. That is the only way to learn.
