"The secret to learning a language is to repeat, repeat and repeat
and to SPEAK without thinking"
– Mr. Robin Callan, Inventor of the Callan Method
Our method helps your brain to remember by using ... ORAL REPETITION!
This is how your parents taught you to speak your language.
Get started today
We are thrilled that you found us!
Since 1996 we have been helping students SPEAK English in Switzerland.
And now we look forward to helping you!
Now the only question is... How would you prefer to learn English?
By taking literally YEARS to learn the grammar, writing and reading of a language...
gaining the ability to... read & write
Simply practicing English by SPEAKING...
gaining the ability... to speak
(Ok we will also spend time so you can read, write and pass exams -- however 80% of class time spent SPEAKING)
This is REALLY important to understand, if you want to make REAL progress...
Speaking a language is actually 2 subjects!
Reading, writing, grammar & vocabulary lists
This is the typical TRADITIONAL METHOD formula:
80% writing, 20% speaking
Years of study with the result to be able,
perhaps, to write, know grammar,
but lack confidence for speaking.
Most often translating in order to speak.
It is not natural and not easy.
Simply using your EARS and TONGUE
to "program" your brain.
This is OUR METHOD formula:
80% speaking, 20% writing
Being able to SPEAK English, with pronunciation correction every lesson. Gain the confidence to speak without the need to translate.
This is how languages should be taught.
These 2 subjects do NOT automatically support each other...
Just because you can Read & Write English
does NOT mean that you will be able to SPEAK English and vice versa
To speak means speaking. Naturally without thinking.
Translating is not speaking, it is translating.
We get different results because we do things differently!
Here is an example of 4 of our differences!

Our 4 basic levels are:
Beginner: Start page 1, Book 1
Never had English classes before, or a long time ago. Can not speak at all.
False Beginner: Have taken English lessons before
But for not very long. Or a long time ago. Can perhaps understand some and speak broken sentences. Very basic conversation perhaps possible.
Intermediate: Basic plus conversation - Can hold a conversation and talk about the past, future etc. But stall to find words, do not feel fluent.
Advanced: Can speak, and probably have occasions where I do speak, at work, or with friends. However, I feel stuck. I don't feel I have learned any new vocabulary or expressions in a long time. I can even get tongue tied at work or in front of people I think speak better than me.
Our classes meet 2 x 1h25 per week
Or 1 x 1h25 or 2 x 45 minutes
Groups are organized by level.
They are LIVE, online with a teacher.
Overcoming the FEAR to SPEAK English can change your life. No matter WHAT your level is we can help you!
