Our mission is very simple. We want to help you speak English confidently and without hesitation.
We are helping people speak English confidently and lose their fear of making mistakes. The Callan Method approach is a fast and dynamic method that consists of guided conversation with native speakers. Our learners utilise English actively by practising it during the lesson. The goal of the method is to improve listening, comprehension and speaking skills.
Callan Method classes are fast-paced, dynamic and interactive! During a Callan Method lesson, learners speak English the whole time, and the teachers are there to correct all mistakes in real time with actual examples! Repetition makes you more fluent and, most importantly, raises your confidence level and frees you from your fear of speaking.
