Hello Forum,

I have a student who I am teaching English as a second language. His first language is spanish. He doesn't speak, write or read English. How can I teach this child English? I tried the Callan Method and that really didn't works since he can't really read the words on the board. What method can I use to teach him how to read and pronounce the alphabet?

Thanks

Kind Regards

JV

I believe the purpose of the Callan Method is to improve the learner's speaking and listening skills. I suggest you separate your lessons for reading and speaking. To teach reading, phonics is the best foundation.
