About

Do you want to stay in a beautiful countryside resort for free while helping talented youth in developing their English speaking skills? Welcome to Angloville.

Angloville is offering volunteering programs in Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania where you will stay for free in a quality hotel in the middle of the beautiful countryside for 7 days mentoring talented and ambitious youth from all over the country in a very laid back environment.

Angloville Junior focuses on enabling a cultural and linguistic exchange between the native English speakers and ambitious young people who are interested in studying abroad. During the program you will talk in English to junior participants, and share your knowledge and experience with them, be the ambassador of English culture and learn about local culture from them through a series of activities.

Questions & Answers

Probably. I attended one session where one of the “Native Speakers” was not really a native speaker, but did have excellent English skills. You will have to check with Angloville.

Ski Junior Angloville English Camp in Poland

Ski Junior Angloville English Camp in Poland is my second programs with Angloville. The experience is great and fun with the junior camp. This is the Angloville first ski program, at first was bit unorganised but everything all work out at the end. If this opportunity is available again next year, I will like to re-apply again. The camp is so fun with the kids, is less intensive compare with the adult program. I spent most of the time playing game with the kids during the speaking session and was fun skiing with all the Junior. (Age 13-18)

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
The traffic was really bad travel to the and back from the venue, but that is nothing we can do, I will suggest other don’t you book you flight on the same day travel back from the venue. The other thing I like to mention is the bus also pick up other participants from the Krakow as well.

Volunteering in Poland

As a retired HR manager I had no experience of teaching a foreign language but plenty of experience of working with people at all levels in their careers and this was a chance to use that experience in a positive way. I met a lot of keen enthusiastic Polish people and interesting volunteers from across the English speaking world. The five days on the programme is interesting, challenging and enjoyable, if you are interested in people you will enjoy the formal and informal aspects of the programme. I always add a few days after or before the programme to do the tourist bit and Wroclaw and Krakow were amazing places to visit.

What would you improve about this program?
Allow volunteers to pay the extra to have single occupancy.

Warsaw Ossolińskich ADULT. 25-31 August 2019

This was my first experience with Angloville, and I enjoyed it very much.

The programme was well organised and participants and volunteers were enthusiatic and motivated. The atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to participate again next year. The volunteers were of different ages (from their 20s to their 70s) and the participants had different levels of English (from basic to excellent knowledge); some were participating for the 3rd or 4th time, so they must get something out of it. The coordinators were also very friendly and they ensured smooth running of the programme. We were very lucky with the weather too. What else can I say - I think this all covers it, no? Besides, I think it's the quality and not the quantity of words that describe the experience.

Refund problems

Angloville is very disorganized. One example is problems with getting refunds after you do your trips. They made me put up three refunds because I was doing 8 weeks. I got 2 partial refunds without any problem but have never received the last one. I have been fighting with them for weeks. Their story constantly changes. First, they told me it's been scheduled. After a month with nothing, I contacted them. They said it's already been paid. Then they had the wrong amount. Then they tried to pay it again but my Paypal said the transaction expired. Nearly two months after completing my last program, I have not received my last refund and have given up hope that I ever will.
Bottom line, you should be aware that you may struggle to get your refund back!

What would you improve about this program?
Get organized. There are many issues with disorganization at Angloville. Refunds is just one of them.
Response from Angloville

Dear Steve, we are sorry to hear that your refund has not been finalized yet. We understand you are not happy with it. After double checking, we can assure you the transfer has been proceeded twice.
The first transfer has failed after 21 days as the money was not claimed. A second transfer has been done on the 03.10: it will soon be canceled if you don't accept the transaction on PayPal. Paypal requires you to claim the money: it takes 1 min, you just have to login to your account and accept the transfer. Feel free to write to info@angloville.com if you need further help :)

Angloville in Poland

Angloville was an incredibly rewarding experience! I not only had to chance to spend 3 weeks in Poland for free and to practice my English teaching skills, but also meet the most amazing people from all over the world (both native English speakers and Polish participants) and live some amazing experiences in a truly beautiful country. The venues I visited were all completely different, but equally wonderful, such as a palace, a hotel in the mountains, and a resort on the edge of a lake (which we could also swim in!). Food was also very accommodating to vegan diets, whilst this varied e.g. living of potatoes and veg for lunch and dinner for one week, at other venues I was made vegan pierogi!

The kids and juniors that I had the pleasure of meeting made the trip even more worthwhile and I would highly recommend Angloville and consider volunteering again in the future.

What would you improve about this program?
The return to the city on the Saturday / travelling to other venues was rather unsafe in regards to arriving in a brand new city close to midnight.
A small contribution to the cost of Saturday night hostels would also be incredibly appreciated as this adds up and we are working for free, despite the participants paying a lot of money to attend the camp.

Angloville Krakow Junior

Angloville junior program in Krakow was a great experience for someone like me looking to gain initial experience teaching english. The students were great, staff were great, venue was great all in a relaxed atmosphere.

There was the freedom and flexibility to be yourself and design your own strategies/interactions which the students enjoyed. The vast majority of students were of good nature and were eager to engage with the program. The coordinators were very approachable and ran the program with good scheduling and cohesion.

The polish participants really valued ups killing their english and appreciated the opportunity to apply their knowledge in conversation (a strategy that they felt they lacked in their english education at school). I would highly recommend spending time in Poland.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
We had the opportunity to see an abandoned castle outside of Warsaw that was very interesting to see, near a very old town. I appreciated the opportunity to see such a historical site and tour a local town.

Angloville in Poland!

Just completed my Angloville week in Warsaw, Poland and it was amazing!

Had the pleasure of meeting enthusiastic Polish participants who were eager to learn and improve their English whilst also making new friends from the Native Speaker team.

Loved the experience and definitely will be doing this again - highly recommend!

At the very beginning, it can seem quite daunting to have speak for hours a day, but when I started, the conversations were naturally flowing well and the Angloville team provided many conversation starters to aid us in keeping our sessions full.

The memories thst were made with the participants are ones to remember, you build friendships with the students very quickly and end up feeling like a part of a massive family!

If you’re considering Angloville, please do it!
