As an English-speaking volunteer, you stay in one of Angloville’s beautiful venues for 1-8 weeks and help local language learners practise their English while enjoying a unique cultural experience, free board and lodging during each program. Each day is packed with conversations, activities, discussions and connecting with new friends. The program is all about conversing and you will not be required to offer traditional teaching. Your conversation partners will change each hour, thus, at the end of each week you will have made a bunch of new friends!

During the teaching practice, you will be involved in full immersion Angloville programmes. These are conversation-based programmes during which you will help local students improve their English in a series of 1 on 1 and small group conversations, games and activities. The programs are an intensive intellectual experience, you may end up speaking for up to 12h a day with various people in a laid back setting. But do not worry, over 8000 people go through the experience each year and they love it!
Typically, a volunteer spends with us from 4 to 8 weeks, combining various 3-11 day programmes into a longer package. Each programme is all about conversing, talking to people and sharing stories. During the whole programme, participants talk on average for around 70 hours. Angloville is a conversation-based event, we do not expect you to teach through books or theory. We will provide materials, but only to help stimulate diverse conversations. By the end of the week you will have many new friends.</span>
We do not limit the format of the conversations and the participants are free to talk about anything they like, while enjoying a stroll, sporting, having a tea or coffee, etc.
Each Angloville venue offers various amenities ranging from indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, a jacuzzi, a sauna, table tennis and pool tables, etc. Enjoying what the venues have to offer is part of what makes Angloville such a unique and fun experience.
We recommend arriving at least one day before the start of the programme to attend the free city tour. Attendance at the city tour is not mandatory, yet we strongly recommend it. It will give you a chance to learn about the city and country you’re in, and will also give you an early introduction to the English speaking group you’ll be spending your week with. The tour is free as is the lunch at the end of the tour.
The tour usually starts at 12:00 PM and lunch starts at 2:30 PM. Typically, you’re done by around 5:00 PM. Keep in mind your lodging is not covered for the evening after the tour/lunch in Warsaw, Wroclaw, Poznan, Budapest, Bucharest or Prague (depending on where your particular trip departs from). Your free accommodation begins the following day upon arrival at the Angloville venue.
On the first day of the programme, the Angloville Bus leaves the city between 6:00 AM – 11:00 AM depending on the location of the hotel venue. You can check the Angloville venues here. Generally, you should be in the base city at 8:00 AM at the latest on the first day of the programme. Please note that detailed information about the meeting point and exact time of departure will be send to you around 3 weeks before the programme starts.
The Angloville Bus leaves Wrocław city centre at 10:00 AM on the 24th of January, which means you shall get to the venue at around 1:00 PM.
