Amazing opportunity for cultural exchange in Poland

After completing this program I can honestly say it has been one of the best experiences I have had so far in my life. The volunteering aspect is really well coordinated - basically you choose the cities you want to depart from and what dates you are free and then have the most fun three weeks of your life ! Angloville's organisation is excellent - all the coordinators were so enthusiastic and approachable and the other volunteers were some of the loveliest people I have ever met. Working with the Polish teenagers was very rewarding - they are so eager to learn and share their cultures with you and you become more like friends or older siblings to them. All the language learning is based on conversations and games so it's not too demanding even though the hours are long but to be honest it goes so quickly and you have so much fun that the time flies by. There really is no negative aspect of the volunteering if you just get involved and be enthusiastic you will have the best time! The TEFL modules aspect is also very interesting - they are very manageable and easy to work through. The content that you learn is very relevant not only to teaching but also to working with people who aren't natives as you learn so much about how the English language is formed and learnt. To come out with this qualification at the end of 3 weeks for such a low price really is an extra bonus the whole volunteering experience is just incredible and is the perfect start to a career teaching English!

The Anglo-TEFL English teaching extravaganza!

The Anglo-TEFL scholarship is an excellent way into teaching English as a foreign language, or a way to develop professionally as a teacher. The Angloville programmes are the most valuable part of the scholarship, as they involve real teaching of real students in different parts of Europe. In other words, you can put directly into practice what you have studied in the theoretical component of the scholarship. While the days on each course are long, the environments are such that you still have fun -- in fact, that is part of the point! Both you and your students develop in many ways over the course of the programmes.

One of the great aspects of these programmes is that you can use the opportunities to work out how you might continue your TEFL career. It soon becomes clear whether you are suited to one-to-one teaching, or whether you might prefer to explore classroom teaching instead. Some also take to teaching in particular countries and maybe even particular cities!

Overall, an excellent opportunity for those with a great interest in TEFL.
