Caleb Gattegno – Creator of the Silent Way

Caleb Gattegno revolutionised the teaching and learning of foreign languages by applying the Science of Education and the Subordination of Teaching to Learning. He developed a completely new explanation of how babies acquire their mother tongue, which had profound implications for the teaching of second languages. Our web-site is dedicated to spreading Gattegno’s thought and the techniques and materials of the Silent Way.
