New Course! Cambridge Exam Preparation with Callan Method

Now students can study a Cambridge Exam preparation course and the Callan method at the same time. Because JET English College is the only accredited Callan Method school in Australia, we can enhance students’ listening and speaking skills with the Callan Method while they earn practical English with the Cambridge Exam Preparation course. It is so original that you cannot find this type of course anywhere else!

Tested and Proved! Callan Method is significantly effective for Cambridge Exam.

It is true to say that it takes a long time to master English. But what if there was a way to shorten the time and master English quickly with an effective method? Do you think you could resist choosing it?

Students spend less time and less money on lessons by learning English in a quarter of the time it takes to learn by other methods.

Research has found that students reach the level of the internationally-recognized Cambridge Preliminary English Test (PET) in approximately 80 hours instead of the usual 350 hours it takes when learning by other methods and the level of the Cambridge First Certificate in English (FCE) in about 160 hours.

▼The graph below shows the relationship between the levels of the Cambridge Exams and Callan Method stages.

Unique! Our curriculum has been developed by an Cambridge Examiner

The curriculum was made specifically for Jet English College by one of the most experienced examiners, who has conducted exams at many schools such as the University of Sydney. With all this experience and knowledge about the Cambridge exam the examiner has gained, this curriculum can optimize the English improvement of the students and they can aim at passing the exam in the quickest way.

Our teachers are experienced and sophisticated

Our teachers for the Cambridge Exam Preparations are trained not only by a Callan Method trainer but also a Cambridge examiner. We must say they are very experienced in teaching.
