Review

I learned about Angloville online without any sort of personal reference, so when I read that a programme would be willing to pay for transport across Romania as well as a week of meals and accommodation I was immediately interested, as someone attempting to travel with a budget. When I met the staff at the bus on our first day everyone was very kind and welcoming, there is a sense of community in Angloville from the get-go and it only gets stronger as you go. The most challenging part of the programme was trying to keep the participants English stimulated constantly! This begins at breakfast at 9am and doesn’t really end until 10pm, with an hour and half break in between. However this is easily made up for by the friendships formed between the volunteers, coordinators and the participants themselves. Our accommodation was great and made an effort to make meals for those with a vegetarian diet. However, the electricity and water at times were not reliable, but this happened only occasionally. I’ve made great friends from the programme and I’m so happy to have taken part! My advice for those preparing is that Angloville sometimes feels like a lot of work - but it’s really just a lot of fun!

Would you recommend this program?
