Poles keen to hone their English language skills and to get a feel for what it’s like to live in an English-speaking environment now have their chance—without having to leave Poland.
The first “English village” in Poland, suitably named Angloville, has been set up in the Le¶ny Dworek Hotel in Cisów, ¦więtokrzyskie province. On site are native speakers from all over the world and people from Poland are invited to live in an English-speaking environment for a week. While staying in the “village” you not only get to brush up on your language skills but become part of a great cultural exchange.

English is the official (and only) language used at Angloville. Polish students of English who want to immerse themselves in an English-speaking environment come to the village to break through the English communication barrier. Angloville is the first language immersion program of its kind in Poland.

Angloville is promoted in all English-speaking countries and a group of people interested in Poland come here every month as part of the project. A theater director from London, a lawyer from New York, a businessman from Toronto and a language teacher from New Zealand traveling the world are just some of the people who have found their way to Angloville.

There are up to 15 native speakers and 15 Polish guests at the village at any one time. Every Polish guest has a native speaker on hand throughout his or her stay.

English is practiced in a variety of everyday situations and no books are used. Angloville is a simulation of the real world. Participants dine together, meet over coffee, at negotiating tables, and during group sessions.
