What's EnBooo's English Gym?
How Does It Work?
Level Assessment & Goal Setting
A video call with your personal coach to test your level and discuss your learning goals. You will also decide how much time you will spend studying every week and what activities you should to focus on.
Receive Your Monthly Tasks
Receive your tasks for the month. Your coach will tell you which type of tasks you should work and will help you incorporate English in your daily routine.
Complete Your Tasks & Receive Feedback
Once a week you’ll be able to submit a task to your coach to receive detailed feedback from them. This will include a list of all the mistakes you made as well as strategies to improve.
Work With Other Learners (If You Want To)
Only if you want to, you have the possibility to connect with other learners that are working towards the same goals as you.

EB Gym or 1:1 Lessons?
How does the English Gym compare to live one-to-one classes? Read to find out!
You’ll be more consistent. With one-to-one classes, students often tend to only study English to prepare for their lessons. The English Gym motivates you to stay consistent and to study English more often.
You’ll be able to ask your teacher any question at any time. With one-to-one classes, you only talk to your teacher when you have the class. With the English Gym you can contact your teacher whenever you’d like.
You’ll get very precise feedback. In a one-to-one class, it’s impossible for the teacher to correct every single mistake you make. With EB Gym you get detailed feedback on one task every week.
You’ll make progress faster. Since you don’t have to rely on a teacher to learn English, you’ll become independent and will start making progress much more quickly.
You’ll set specific goals. With 1:1 classes, it’s hard how much progress you’re making. With the English Gym, you’ll know what exactly what you’re working on and what you should learn every month.
Meet Your Coach
Lara is a CELTA-certified English teacher and founder of EnBooo.
Although she is originally from Italy, through years of practice and self-study, she has achieved a native-like level of English.
Now she likes to spend her time creating quality resources to help English learners become fluent and confident.
After four weeks, you will decide whether to sign up for another month or take a break instead.
This entirely depends on your goals and weaknesses. The tasks will be based on the self-study guide you can find here. You can access the guide for free by registering to the website.
No, you don't have to but it's recommended. I suggest setting aside at least 30 minutes a day for five days a week. I can help you build a routine to make sure you find the time.
Working with other learners is not required but it is strongly encouraged. Working with other EB Gym members will help you stay motivated, build confidence and see things from a different perspective, but the choice is ultimately yours.
Absolutely! In fact, you will learn more! Sorry to break it to you, but 1:1 video calls are way overrated and more often than not... a waste of time. Talking with someone unfortunately is not enough to see major improvements in the way you speak and only works when combined with self-study, which is what we focus on.
Of course! In fact, speaking will most likely often be our main focus, only we will practice it asynchronously (i.e. not in real time), meaning you will record yourself speaking into the camera or having a conversation with another EB Gym Member and then you'll receive detailed feedback on how you did.
This has multiple benefits — not only will this give you a chance to prepare for the task and use new vocabulary (which will increase the chances of you memorizing it) but it will also give the coach the opportunity to review one of your tasks once a week and correct ALL of your mistakes (and not just some); besides, you'll have the possibility to watch/listen to your recording again and become aware of the mistakes you make — this is something you can't usually do after a long 1:1 call, but it's a crucial step if you want to improve and if you want to stop making the same mistakes over and over again.
Try it for one week! If you don't like it, I'll happily give you a full refund.
