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.

Teachers still have everything prepared for them but it provides you with room to think and respond to students and their language-needs in a way that Callan tries actively to prevent.

One other big advantage I saw is that Speak your Mind works well at advanced levels: Hi Jon, Thanks for your response. Which Callan School did you teach in? Was it the main one in London? I have never heard of the 'Speak Your Mind' method of learning English, I just googled it but couldn't find anything. How can I find more about it?

I'm a new teacher and start my second week tomorrow.

Callan Method 1

I always dread going in; I find the students are always well-versed in much of the 'New Work' especially when I have to cover something like 'Do you walk to school? Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos. Hello again, I worked in a school in Poland - I've never been to the main school in London.

You are describing the most infuriating part of the Callan Method - when rigid rules get in the way of what you see in front of you.

Why 'teach' something when it's obvious the class know it already?

I think all those rules are there to make it fool-proof in the worst possible scenario - incomepetent or ignorant teachers in a mixed-level group. The thing is, good groups and on-the-ball teachers are stuck in that straight-jacket too. It's like having to repeat every question even when students get it first time - what is the point really? The bottom line is that you are paid to provide a service to studnets who have chosen to be there with you, so it's not fair to rebel in the classroom, especially after a week or two.

Grin and bear it and look for little loopholes where humour can break through. Spea your Mind isn't so rule-governed but it doesn't need to be. Everything is well explained and makes sense and things pretty much work by consensus. Keep at it, Xanthe.

Things are worst at the beginning. You'll soon get over most of the embarassment and a politely tongue-in-cheek approach can even make it fun with the right classes. Do they hire regionally or is there a center which you need to go through? 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.

Teach with the Callan Method - fast, fun and affordable!

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.

They want to speak and communicate. With Callan, they know this will happen.

Callan students are listening and speaking all the time — a stark contrast with what they have experienced with other teaching methods.I need some help for choosing the book and supporting the lesson with other materials ex,worksheets etc.. In his early twenties, he went to Italy to teach English in Salerno.

This is because it is natural to use contractions in spoken English and you must learn to understand them. Teachers are not supposed to mess with it by Mr. Has anyone got scanned.
