Program Details

Angloville is a conversation-based program. It is not about traditional teaching; it’s more of a cultural exchange program where the by-product for the Local Participants is comfort with using English language, for the English speakers a great introduction to the new culture and for everyone – many new international friendships. During the whole program, participants talk on average for around seventy hours. While that may sound intimidating, the time flies by – each hour is a new activity, with new people, and new goals.
***
We depart from Warsaw on Sunday February 12 and come back on Saturday February 18. You'll be staying at Lipowy Most Hotel http://www.lipowymost.pl/?lang=en
We also offer you a chance to participate in a tour of Warsaw before the programme - on February 11.


Activities & Shift

You will be talking for most the day in many different forms from one-on-one and two-on-one conversations, to group activities, to games, to entertainment performances, to relaxing over a meal. We do not limit the format of the conversations and the participants are free to talk about anything they like (though we do provide topics you may use).

We also encourage people to have their discussions while enjoying a stroll, sporting, having a tea, etc. Each Angloville venue is fantastic, with amenities including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a tennis court, a jacuzzi, ping pong and pool tables, etc.

Throughout the week, you will have a chance to speak with everyone on the trip, individually, in addition to the group discussions, meals, etc.
