I recommend the Anglo-TEFL Scholarship with Angloville for those looking for a funded 120-hour TEFL course combined with informal teaching experience

I participated in three Poland-based Angloville programmes in order to fulfil the requirements of the Anglo-TEFL scholarship. Combined with an online 120-hour Advanced TEFL Course, this experience has proved invaluable for someone like myself, who is interested in pursuing TEFL-related job roles in the future and is therefore currently interested in voluntary situations that primarily involve English language practice with and teaching of adults and/or youth.

I, along with other Native English Speaker volunteers, provided one-to-one and group conversational practice and activities for professional adults.

I really enjoyed meeting, working with, assisting and befriending people from a wide variety of professional and cultural backgrounds, broadening my personal perspective whilst gaining practical and theoretical knowledge/experience that will benefit me in my future job search.

Unforgettable Experience!

I absolutely loved the Angloville program in Hungary. It was an awesome experience with unforgettable memories. It was exciting from the very first day and only got better the more everyone got to know each other. There were jokes and laughs as well as the serious business of "teaching" English. By teaching I mean having great conversations with professionals who were able to share their countries' way of doing things which is exactly what I wanted out of the program. I learnt so much about Hungarian culture and have left with so many good friends in Hungary!
I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to visit Hungary or any of the other locations to apply, as you will learn a lot more about the culture than if you are just a tourist in a big city. You will get as much out of the program as you put in, and being involved in almost every activity made it such a rich experience for me.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Get involved! This program was amazing and I took every opportunity to be as involved as possible which made it such a rich experience. I learnt so much about Hungary and made some awesome friends in the process.

Bachledowka May 25 - 31 Poland

This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my young life. On May 25 (incidentally my 76 Birthday) I met a group of the NES (Native English Speakers) and our 2 Angloville Coordinators for a tour of Krakow. It was immediately evident that these were all interesting people from different countries and life experiences. The following day we met the entire group at Bacheldowka - a beautiful resort in the Tatra mountains. Fifteen very keen Polish participants and 15 NES. It was intense with 7 sessions a day, some one on one, some two on two (my favorite) and group activities. As the week progressed the emerging confidence of the Polish Participants became very evident with the very rewarding for all Presentations. Each Polish Participant gave a 5 minute presentation in English that they had designed and researched with the aid of their assigned NES Mentor. The entire group of 30 beamed in the glow of this accomplishment. Kudos to our Coordinators as well Arrvind and Evona and thank you to them for my Birthday Cake and the extra care because I had a terrible cold for the entire week. I'll do it again - probably in the fall

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would not start out with a sore throat which progressed to a terrible cold and sinus infection. I would want to enjoy every moment of the interaction, the meals and the social activities.

Expectations Exceeded!

I spent three weeks in a row on programs in Czech Republic and Poland. I had so much fun, it did not seem like work most of the time, although the days were long. I really enjoyed chatting with the participants who taught me as much as I taught them! I love the concept Angloville has of improving confidence rather than nitpicking on grammar and so on. Some participants had come back after doing the program before so that shows their appreciation for the methods used. I have the same philosophy of teaching in my classroom.

The venues are in absolutely stunning settings where I got much needed green therapy.
Hopefully, I will get to join the program again in the future.
Big thanks to Angloville for the experience AND for making my birthday so special even though a few days prior, I didn't know a single person who was to celebrate with me!

What would you improve about this program?
It would be nice if we could have our own rooms as some rooms are really small and people need to do laundry by hand-washing and get rest. That said, I enjoyed the roommates I had!

The one week we got lots of conflicting info regarding times, schedule, etc. They kept changing which was confusing and not efficient for anyone. Expectations were not always clear.

Some of the materials have grammatical errors/misspelling which should not be acceptable

Could eliminate waste: no plastic folders, no need for three nametags/lanyards for people like me who did three in a row.

**Highest regard to Aaron and his Czech coordinator (can't spell his name offhand) who were fantastic!**

Unique opportunity to gain insight into other countries and cultures

I've volunteered 4 times with Angloville - two in Hungary and two in Poland. I've enjoyed each of them. No two sessions are alike. The opportunity to meet people from the participant countries and other anglo volunteers from around the world is truly unique and provides perspectives into different countries and cultures I would not have gained otherwise.

Even if they don't realize it, everyone participating is an ambassador and representative of their country and city regardless if a participant or volunteer. I've learned people are people are people with similar needs, wants and desires regardless of country of origin. The volunteers are sincerely interested in the participants succeeding and getting as much as possible from their experience. I'm looking forward to my next session.

What would you improve about this program?
Expedite the process for volunteers who have previously successfully participated in the program.

My review

Engaging event and satisfying to help a very receptive group improve their English skills. I am not impressed by the requirement to use a minimum seven hundred and fifty characters in order to write a review to qualify for refund of my deposit. If I did not object to using emojis to express my emotions I would use them to make up the required number of characters. I have said all I want to say in the first sentence of my review so will make up the requisite seven hundred and fifty characters with meaningless filler which will waste my time and that of the person who will review it. Given the opportunity I could have written a more comprehensive and possibly more positive review but resent what I see as a rather manipulative technique to elicit a more elaborate review which could be used to promote the programme.

Angloville Czech Republic, Hotel Buchlov

An enjoyable and fun experience for cross cultural exchange between locals wanting to learn English more fluently and people who enjoy socialising, learning and experiencing local culture. It is extremely easy for the natives, rather like a vacation especially if you like talking a lot and to many people! Staying together as a group with multiple nationalities was fun. On this particular program there were even 10am starts!! (Many stayed on to socialise and drink at night too so the 10am starts came in very handy!!). In this program, speaking English was not enforced between the students which made for a more relaxed vibe as well. Hotel Buchlov was a nice venue, the staff and soups especially were great, the castle and forest walks were nearby. Aaron and Zdenek coordinated the program well. Definitely consider it if you are travelling around Europe or on vacation and want something interesting, cultural and constructive to do.

It's was a great experience

I would recommend this program to all wanting to learn English with confidence. Its engaging, fun and still with a mission at the end. Every experience is so personal and beautiful. If you have the time do consider joining this program. Build a new confidence and new friends too. Get to see great views, places, explore and learn about a place. So for travel lovers this is can also be a good option as you an exchange your language skills and confidence to someone who really needs it and while you get to learn from them and local cultures. The only advise is, be prepared for the amazing places in Poland however it can get cold from time to time so do bring your wind breakers or a scarf the least . Other than that its amazing times with Angloville.

Poland program

Wonderful program that was very enjoyable. Great discussions, amazing participants and it got better as the week went on. I recommend it highly. ThePolish participants were committed, dedicated and very serious in their efforts to improve and were very impressive in their abilities and growth during the week. My mentee was wonderful and very eager to do a good job and we worked well together as she took advice, was receptive to my feedback and grew from it. We also had fun during social activities, meals and off time that enhanced the program. Having time to be outside was also important as a way to enjoy fresh air during a long day I would attend another program in the future and look forward to another experience. It was also great to see the venue and enjoy the local scenery.

Lip[owy Most

I had a fantastic time in Poland and met wonderful people from all over the world, I will definitely repeat the experience again. Everything was well organised, the location was fabulous, great food and comfortable rooms. Steven did a fab job leading the programme each day. A typical day would start at 9:00 am for breakfast followed by one to one activities, role plays or negotiation activities, then lunch and after lunch similar activities again. Dinner was at 7:00 pm followed by fun and games! I highly recommend Angloville to anyone with a sense of adventure. You will have a brilliant time and meet incredible people.
Lipowy Most is set in a beautiful forest close to the border with Belarus, it even has a beautiful spa and gardens with a lake to walk in too. I can't wait to try another Angloville programme.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My advice would be to just do it. There are people of all ages ranging from 20 to about 70. We all got on well and had a lot of fun together. You will come away with great memories and you will have met fabulous people from different countries and cultures.

Rewarding and fun experience

My wife and I just finished two fantastic weeks with Angloville. One week out of Budapest, Hungary and a week near Wroclaw, Poland. Angloville is a great experience and opportunity to meet other mentors from around the world as well as professional people from the country you volunteer in.

The week is organized so that there is no guessing what you need to do. There is no formal teaching just conversational interaction with the participants. Lots of fun during the event.
You will make many new friends. The accommodations and meals are provided.

It was a great way to travel between Angloville programs for enabling us to see other parts of the two countries we participated in. You won't regret being a part of the program.

Look forward to taking part again!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
We had the opportunity to hike as a group to a waterfall and to a castle. It gave us an opportunity to informally interact as well as bond with participants. It changed up the routine. The hike was challenging but worth the view at the top.

Angloville Budapest 2019

This was my first Angloville and it was amazing! The students were great - really engaged and motivated. It was wonderful to see their progress over the week, improving their language skills, growing in confidence and enjoying their experience. I met so many people from different parts of the globe and different walks of life, which helped make my experience of Angloville so enriching. The coordinators were friendly, encouraging and supportive. The venue (Varga Tanya) was lovely. I can recommend the wellness centre for taking some time out to relax during a busy day. Overall the environment was friendly, fun and relaxed. Mentoring sessions included one-to-one conversation, small group discussions, role play, negotiations, telephone conversations and group activities. I would recommend Angloville to anyone. Just be yourself and enjoy the experience!

Well-worth it!

Angloville is great for networking and working on ESL teaching skills. It also requires you to be a good listener and come up with appropriate topics of conversation for people of varying English abilities.
The accomodations vary depending on the program. Yes, it's volunteer work so the focus should be on working with people and helping them achieve their English learning goals, not what time the bar opens or if the wifi is any good. Volunteers come from all walks of life so be prepared to deal with their issues, not necessarily the native speakers'. Luckily, the program coordinators are very adept in handling all kind of situations and are always available for addressing issues.
It's a rewarding experience though. You kind of have to take it for what it's worth.

What would you improve about this program?
I would do better screening of the volunteers and staff.

Very Great

The program was very streamlined and easy to follow along with. I am excited to see where it takes me in all of my future endeavors. Applying to Angloville was simple and easy. The recruitment team contacts you timely and makes sure you don't have any confusion along the way. The interview process is very professional and quick. I look forward to participating in future programs and experiencing all it has to offer me. The cities and programs were all put together very well. Traveling between programs and working in multiple cities is definitely the way to experience the most exposure to the culture. The student's participation was very active and highly involved. Overall, Angloville is a great, simple and extremely fun organization. I highly recommend participation in one or more programs.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Apply early to get access to the vast amount of cities offered in this program.

May 2019

I randomly stumbled upon angloville & signed up for the adult program. I almost thought of it as being too good to be true. I signed up for a program in Warsaw.

I thoroughly enjoyed the program. I met people from all walks of life & learnt so much from everyone involved. The day is broken into 1-1 as well as group activities. Entertainment hour in the evening is a lot of fun & relaxed.

Angloville looked after us very well. The venue was amazing set in the grounds of a palace. The food was delicious with an array of local dishes & fresh salads. A tea and coffee station on hand throughout the day.

This was a fantastic program, I won’t hesitate to book another. I would recommend this to anyone who is up for a fun and rewarding week abroad.
