IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO START LEARNING ENGLISH
How many times have you said that you are too old to learn English?
This is actually a very common excuse people use to avoid learning English. You will be surprised when we tell you it’s easier to learn a language when you are older.
Studies show that no matter their age, people have the capacity to learn new vocabulary, grammar and generally develop new ways of learning. Older people have an advantage over young people when it comes to learning languages.
Think about how often you give your children or grandchildren advice, based on your own personal experience. You know more, because you have more experience, right?
Well, the same goes for this.
Already know how to learn
Have developed efficient learning techniques
Have the ability to guide yourselves
Can adapt to change
During one Callan method lesson the teacher and students say more than 10,000 words altogether! In schools which use classic methods of learning only about 3000 words are spoken.
Our beginner students start speaking immediately, and we always have new beginner groups opening, you can enrol at any time during the year.
All beginners get the first lesson for free in order to get familiar with the method.
Your learning will be oriented towards one goal, and that is to:
Learn real, spoken English in the shortest time possible.
Here are 5 ways to stop with excuses and start learning, no matter your age.
1. ADULTS LEARN MORE EFFICIENTLY
There are some aspects of languages which are easier when you are older because you are already full of knowledge. As an adult you already know how to study. Adults have a much greater vocabulary than children, so they can use different methods to remember and connect hundreds or thousands of new words in a very short period of time.
2. THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL LEARNING IS MOTIVATION
The advantage adults have is that once they start learning a language, they have a great desire to learn. Those people are then excited with what they are learning and absorb it faster. Let’s say you have met someone in a foreign country and fell in love or you got a new job which requires international communication, or you just think that a language sounds nice. No matter the circumstances, motivation for learning is going to speed up the process.
3. IT IS IMPORTANT TO TRAIN YOUR BRAIN
Constant learning keeps your brain active. Naturally, training it more leads to better results. The brain is a very dynamic structure that can change and adjust to new experiences. So, you can teach an old dog new tricks.
