Callan Method Grammar Workbook launched at the Central School of English

We are excited to announce a great new addition to our Callan Method courses… a grammar workbook that gives you extra practise of the language and grammar you learn in your classes… and more!

When you have covered an important grammar topic in your Callan Method class and there is a section in the workbook about it, the teacher will advise you where to find the relevant exercises. You complete the exercises at home and see how well you did by checking the answers at the end of the book.

There are 22 grammar sections in all, with two, three or four exercises in each.

In addition to the grammar practice, there is a general language section in the workbook where you can practise and test your knowledge of all the language taught in Stages 1-7 of the Callan Method books.

You can check out some sample pages below.

The workbook has been written by the authors of the Callan Method and is designed to give you extra help in improving your English fast. Of course, it isn’t compulsory, but whether you want to improve your English for day-to-day communication or if you plan to prepare for an exam, we think it as an excellent tool to help you achieve your goals.

The workbook costs €25 and you can get your copy from reception at 5 Talbot Street or the office at 23 Marlborough Street.

Luas Green Line

It’s not called the Central School of English for nothing: Not only is the school right in the very centre of Dublin – just metres from the Spire – but it’s also really handy for all transportation links.

Dublin’s central bus station (Busáras) is five minutes walk away, as is the city’s main railway station, Connolly.

And now it’s even easier to get to the school by a third method of transport: The tram (LUAS).
