Program Details

Angloville is a conversation-based programme. It is not about traditional teaching; it’s more of a cultural exchange programme 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 programme, participants talk on average for around seventy hours. The most important difference between Angloville and a traditional English course is that we do not teach through books or theory.

What’s included?
o Free accommodation and food for all action-packed days
o A free tour (lunch included) of Wrocław
o Free transportation from Wrocław to the venue and back.
o Invaluable teaching experience with students from Poland


Activities & Shift

You will be talking for the majority of the day in many different forms from one-on-one conversations, to group activities, to negotiations, to games, to entertainment performances, to relaxing over a meal or a drink. 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 one-on-one discussions while enjoying a stroll, sporting, having a tea or coffee, etc. Each Angloville venue is fantastic, with amenities including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a tennis court, a jacuzzi, a sauna, ping pong and pool tables, etc. Enjoying what the venues have to offer is part of what makes Angloville such a unique and fun experience. Throughout the week, you will have a chance to speak with everyone on the trip, individually, in addition to the group discussions,
