I was a native speaker at Angloville for this past summer. I did 3 weeks and I wouldn't that exchange the experience for anything. You go into this program thinking you are going to help others but it is so much more because you end up learning so much from the kids as well. I made so many bonds with so many children and with the other native speakers. A week may not be a long time but it is more than enough time to make an impact on someone's life or even to be impacted!
I absolutely recommend Angloville to anyone!

The three weeks I did of Angloville were intense, but worth it. It pushes you outside your social comfort zone, you make a lot of amazing friends - participants and mentors alike. I would love to do more programs in the future and would recommend it to anyone travelling and looking for something different.
Even when things might not have always gone to plan or someone was struggling with the mundane, like how to do laundry or find your way around the venue, the group you're with are always there struggling with you or trying to find solutions.
You are never really alone at Angloville, which can be a little tiring at times, but my mindset was always that I wanted to spend as much time as possible with these amazing people that I'll only be able to get to know and hang out with for one week. So the experience makes you very socially spent, but in a good way. You're always having fun, and maybe discussing really interesting topics, especially when you connect with people sharing similar interests with you or letting them tell you about what's different in other countries compared to yours, etc.

Was really fun, would recommend to people wanting a cheap trip to Europe and to learn more about teaching experiences. Some of the hotels are better than others but all are very accommodating especially with dietary requirements. Good idea to bring some of your own resources/ games although there are some provided. The coordinators were very helpful when you were unsure of anything and were always available to offer support.

I have no regrets doing Angloville as it was a brilliant and fufilling experience. The Polish participants were lovely, and it was amazing to meet likeminded native speakers from around the world. I feel like I have made great friends for life. I'd also say Anglovile improved my confidence.
I would recommend Angloville as it is a great way to travel + see unique, non touristy, areas of a country for a very low price as they cover food, accommodation and travel. However, it is worth mentioning that Angloville do not cover transport costs between venues.
Overall it was a great experience

How can this program be improved?
An incentive for volunteers as we put in a lot of hours. I also wish there was more resources to aid speaking sessions such as games involving speaking. This would be helpful especially for when we get a shy participant.

I definitely recommend Angloville. They helped and assisted by giving me the opportunity to teach and mentor their students (adult participants) in Hungary, Czechia and Poland for 3 months, May-Aug 2018. I had such a great experience with their staff and programs. I loved all of them and couldn’t pick just one. I would do more in a heartbeat and plan too.

Also, great news...I’ve just been TEFL Certified with TEFLPremier. With the help of Angloville and special thanks to all their participants that I’ve met, taught and mentored for 3 months, this was because of them. The last three months with Angloville sparked the passion of teaching in me!
