Venya Pak about the course

Why Choose the Challenge-Marathon

Save money

One marathon lesson is 1.5 times cheaper than a lesson with a private tutor. In a month, you’ll save over $200 and learn as much as you would in a month of private lessons.

Motivation and personal growth

Through the marathon, you’ll develop the habit of daily English. Our rating system and special prizes will help keep you motivated, so you’ll never want to miss a class.

Focus on both grammar and vocabulary

This marathon has lessons dedicated both to grammar and vocabulary so you will boost your speaking and writing skills.

Speaking practice

Overcome the language barrier and start speaking English with confidence through in-depth lessons on essential grammar and vocabulary.

How It Works

6 Lessons Each Week

For example, in one week we’ll learn new vocabulary, practice new grammatical skills, and talk about phrasal verbs. Then, at the end of the week, we’ll have a livestream on pronunciation or speech practice.

Working with a partner

Each marathoner will have a partner to work with. When choosing a partner for you, we will make sure they have similar hobbies and English proficiency. Together, you will do team homework and have a chance to win prizes.

Mandatory homework

There will be two types of homework: individual and partnered. The individual homework helps you improve English but does not count in the ranking. It’s just for practice. The partnered homework boosts your English, influences your rating, and gives you a chance to win prizes. It only takes 15 minutes to do both sets of homework. And no, you can't just skip it.

Fail your partner — lose your position in the ranking

The idea is simple: if you don’t do the homework with your partner, you let them down. This makes you lose your position in the ranking. Rules are strict but fair. And they’re here to help you learn.

What to expect at the marathon

Lessons and live streams

14 lessons and 4 live streams. You can watch all lessons as many times as you want.

Ranking to keep you motivated

To get to the top of the class, you need to complete all partner homework correctly and on time. If you don’t want to participate in the course competition, let us know. You’ll get the same course, but without any partner tasks.

Learning materials

Memos and a tracker of good habits will help you take less notes and memorize everything more quickly.

Certificate and discounts

All participants in the marathon will receive a certificate of course completion, and special discounts: $50 off our language courses abroad and $10 off any intensive course.

Chat for communication

In chat, you can ask questions and chat with other students, course coordinators, or Venya Pak.

Personal consultations

There is also an option to get access to a chat with Venya for 3 weeks. There, Venya checks your homework and answers any questions about the course.

Feedback

Ilya Lukevich

I previously participated in the marathon, “Speak like a Pro,” and I liked the course a lot. It was the first time I’d participated in such a course. The format of homework was hugely interesting and informative--there was a lot of new and useful vocabulary for everyday communication. As the vocabulary was explained via song lyrics, I discovered a new way to study the language for myself. My partner for this course was perfectly chosen. We became good friends and did all tasks on time. And I’d like to specifically mention “The Chaos Poem:” amazing thing to boost your pronunciation! It was a challenge within a challenge.

Andrey Ivanov

All lessons were delivered in an interesting and engaging format. All examples given were helpful for increased comprehension and memorization of the information, to build emotional connections. My partner was chosen nicely, we have kept in touch with him after the end of the marathon.

Valentin Aliferov

Intensive lessons with Venya were memorable because I received only relevant, current information on the topic. Everything was explained with real life examples, in plain language, and with humor. :) In addition, I was pleased with the technical and organizational side: webinars, chats, reminders - everything is clear, modern and tasteful. I'm looking forward to the next intensives!

Elizaveta Cherepanova

Venya is a very good teacher. He always smiles and jokes. And when the mood is good, it is much easier to study. When explaining the material, Venya usually gives such vibrant, I would even say "flashy" examples, which stick in your memory very well. I also liked that Venya communicates with everyone as if with long-familiar friends. The atmosphere is very comfortable. That's live chatting! That would be great to talk face-to-face! I have only one intensive grammar on my account. It is rather short, but capacious. It will probably be a little complicated if you’re completely new to the language. And those who know the grammar will still find something interesting. It is not necessarily related to the rules of the language. :) First of all, it is important that there is a direct link to the teacher, a resident of the United States, who is immersed in that environment, and practically any situation of life there can be depicted. Repeating and reinforcing many pieces was very useful. To all those who haven’t done so already, I advise you to try at least one intensive to see how the process is organized. As well as to see Venya in action. He is cool.
