Speaking Club Guide

Welcome to the EnBooo Speaking Club! Learning English is an adventure, so why not make it a fun one?! Keep reading to find out more about our meetups.

1. Who is the EnBooo Speaking Club for?

The EnBooo Speaking Club is a space created for intermediate (B1) and upper-intermediate students (B2) to practice and improve their speaking and pronunciation skills.

2. How many people will be in each meetup?

In order to give everyone the chance to speak and practice, we keep our meetups small – that means between 3 and 6 people per meetup.

3. Who is the teacher?

Lara will be the teacher hosting the Speaking Club.

A few facts about me:

  • I am a CELTA-certified teacher
  • I have around 10 years of experience teaching students from all over the world, both in person and online
  • I have taught at several schools and academies, including the British Council and the University of  Tampa, Florida

4. How are the lessons structured?

Each meetup is 1 hour long

• Approximately 2 days before your meetup, you will be sent a short article to read or a short video to watch, which will be the starting point of our discussion.

• We’ll briefly go over any difficult vocabulary and grammar and then we’ll dive right into speaking, either in pairs or as a group.

• From time to time, we will stop to correct any mistakes made, introduce new vocabulary and correct any pronunciation mistakes.

5. Where are the meetups held?

The Speaking Club meetups are held on WhereBy, a great platform for online meetups. Join from your computer or your phone, you don’t even need to install any apps.  Once, you register, you will be given a link to access the meetup.

6. What times and days are the meetups?

Each Speaking Club group will meet once a week. You can choose the time (Berlin time) that best fits your schedule. I might consider opening up more slots if enough students are interested, so if these times and days do not work for you but you’re interested in participating, you can still fill out the form to suggest another time.

  • Tuesday at 7.00pm CET or
  • Wednesday at 5.30pm CET

7. How much does it cost?

Each meetup is 1 hour  long and it costs €10. The first meetup is free. After that, you will be able to purchase a four-week membership (€40), which will give you access to the four meetups that will take place that month. Your Speaking Club membership is renewed automatically every four weeks but you can cancel it at anytime. You can pay via PayPal or by credit card.

8. Can I skip a meetup?

As a rule of thumb, missed meetups cannot be recouped, this is meant to ensure there is a minimum number of students participating in every meetup. Exceptions may be made if there is an open spot for another meetup that same week, but I cannot assure that will be the case. If the organizer themselves cancels the meetup, you will not be charged for that week, meaning your membership will be paused and that meetup will be recouped.

9. How can I join the Speaking Club?
