ESL Program Introduction

These two methods complement each other perfectly:

*In General English quite a lot of time is spent on grammatical theory, and in the speaking tasks the teacher takes a ‘communicative’ approach. With this approach more emphasis is placed on the student’s ability to get their idea across, rather than accuracy of expression. The aim is to allow the student create a flow of language and to communicate their meaning. Typically the teacher will only intervene if the student is unclear i.e. if their grammar or pronunciation is so wide of the mark that it obscures their meaning.
* A Callan Method class is very different to General English class, focusing almost completely on the spoken language. There is a constant verbal interchange between the teacher and the student. The student is required to answer in complete sentences so that these sentence structures will be retained in the memory and available for re-use. Every error, whether in grammar or in pronunciation, is corrected the moment they are uttered. Grammar is explained, but not in writing: in speaking. The teacher explains a point of grammar and then asks the student a question eliciting a response which shows that the student has understood the point.
