Anglia Summer 2020 weeks in June, July and August will focus on connecting the students in the various locations to each other. Everyone will have a chance to talk on Skype to 3 different countries. Small groups of older students can even travel to other countries.
An exciting week with a focus on international communication. We are preparing locations in 8 countries: The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Ukraine, Czech Republic, England and Poland. Perhaps more countries will join, we will present the final programme before Christmas.
We offer an exclusive platform, designed to teach students of different ages, levels and language skills the art of public speaking. While many are afraid of public speaking, it's an incredibly important skill and we think one worth developing in young minds. Therefore, Debate4Kids offers guides, topics, in-depth evaluations and continous support to ensure the students grow to be confident public speakers.

Joep and Carli's adventure in Ghana has started. They will be there for three months to teach English and promote hygiene to children. The EFKF has provided materials to help them with this, and we will be following and posting their journey via social media.
Watch their full interview below for more details!
Just before they left we met with Joep and Carli to give materials, have some pie, and bid them goodbye as they embark on their three month adventure in Ghana. This material will help them teach around 100 children!
The Anglia Speaking Tests are a valuable addition to the Anglia offer and are available at all levels. “Do you speak English?” is the most popular question.
The Speaking Test is not an exam on its own. Participation is always in combination with the R/W/L examination and can be taken at the same level. Most schools register their candidates at all four levels at the same time and the Speaking test is taken in the same week as the written exam. The Speaking Tests do not have to been taken on a fixed exam date, but they should be conducted within 12 months after participation in the R/W/L examinations.
With the last two Experience weeks in Amersfoort and Middelharnis we closed off another successful summer season. We want to thank everyone who participated and helped making the Experience weeks happen. We saw many new faces but also lots of students and teachers who have been part of the experience for several years in a row now!
Check out the new English Experience Weeks photo impression page on the website of English Academy. We hope to see you again next year!
Choose the Anglia Exam Training to prepare you and/or your colleagues for an Anglia exam or choose the Primary in Action training to also learn how to have discussions and conversations in English and receive tools and instructions how to teach English in your class room.
On July 7, a team of 6 international teachers will fly to Athens to teach English in Action at the Arsakeio, Ekali High School from 8-12 July. This will be our first year in Greece and we can’t wait to meet the Greek students and local teachers! Initially we decided to only accept 50 students but the enthusiasm from parents was so overwhelming and convincing that now over 75 children will participate.
A special thanks to Jan Vijfhuizen, Internationalization coordinator at RSG het Rijks in Bergen Op Zoom, who will be one of the teachers in Greece but is also the initiator of this project. And another special thanks to local partner/organizer Eugenia Dodopoulou, teacher and dean at Arsakeio High School, who has gone above and beyond to make sure that everyone will have an incredible week!
This was the fourth year that we started off our summer school season in lovely Khust, Ukraine. Like last year our director Arnold Augustijn, local organizer Lidia Fedinets and teacher Tolga Gul were present but this year the team was supplemented with EEG colleague– If I have not done it before, I am sure can do it – Melanie Testers and Monique Wilkinson from the UK who was the appointed summer school head teacher.
“This week was the kick-off and the perfect start of the 2019 summer school season! Lots of new students, new teachers and this year also a new second location. At the welcome there were lots of tense faces, but after the warming up session everyone loosened up. The English Experience Week is all about English in Action. There are not too many boring exercises; we focus on learning children how to communicate in English with one another . These skills will help them to become global citizens.
It was also very warm in Khust this week so we went outside often to play, for the group pictures, lunch (in the shade), sports, games and ice cream for everyone! This was such an energetic and inspiring week for all of us!” – Melanie Testers
Our Building Bridges project wants to double next school year. After a successful first pilot year, the schools are eager to expand the cooperation.
“Although the practicalities are sometimes a bit of a challenge, the final outcome is more than rewarding.” quotes one of the teachers. The biggest attraction is the contact with kids of the same age in another country. “I like the fact that you can choose your country, so you can go for the atmosphere that fits your kids.” Making the videos was also a popular activity. “It’s a different kind of language learning, but because they have to be serious, as they get feedback in the group report, they tend to be very actively involved.”
Registration for the new Building Bridges group starts on Thursday 20 June. The actual Building Bridges project begins in October / November 2019.
