This was a life changing experience for me as well as many of the participants in the programme. The opportunity to meet so many great people and really get to know them was awesome. Some life-time friendships are created here. The work that each volunteer and especially the participants put into the programme is the most rewarding experience to see how each one's confidence grew over the period of a week and how their English dramatically improved. The mentorship opportunity was exceptionally great which allowed guidance in a real life situation. The resulting presentation by the participant at the end of the week is phenomenal and such a proud moment for both parties. Group activities were lots of fun too and of course the entertainment and social time were the most fun. Work hard and play hard for big reward!!!!! This programme is highly recommended to improve English conversational skills. Participants leave this programme speaking confidently and without hesitation. A phenomenal experience and I will definitely do it again.

Angloville offers a great programme for learners of English, and it's really good experience of working with a wide range of people of different ages.
You will be speaking almost the whole day, and engaging in different group activities. The participants are almost universally extremely enthusiastic and very willing to talk and join in with everything in order to improve their English. The juniors in particular are surprisingly invested in speaking sessions, and generally have an impressively high level.

How can this program be improved?
There isn't much in the way of training and resources, while helpful, aren't always enough to make sessions run smoothly.

Three weeks spent in Krakow and Warsaw Poland was amazing! People, places, culture, story sharing; all was more than I hoped. Coordinators were great, venues often jaw dropping. One really leaves with the sense that you made an impact on the participants...and they on you. Whatever age of native speaker and participant, all were very impressed with the program. I am very excited to try other venues, but will always have these in my back pocket for future rediscovery!

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.
