Summer 2020 will be different in many ways. Unpredictable. Anglia Team Roosendaal has decided to offer extra support for schools and students who want to do some extra activities in July or August. Live meetings on our new Platform will be a great option for this.

Teachers and students from Spain, Vietnam, Argentina, Ukraine, Germany, Belgium and Indonesia have been on the Platform so far, discussing various forms of cooperation. In July and August the Platform will be available for our Members, so please contact Angela@Anglia.nl.

English Summer Schools, assessments or training. Nothing is too much, in sunshine, or when it is raining. Dear Marian, you deserve our PIE because you give far more than you take.
Marian has been involved in a wide variery of Anglia activities for many, many years. As one of our most experienced Anglia Speaking Test Assessors she has guided hundreds, if not thousands of Anglia Speaking Test participants, mostly in the south of The Netherlands.
