Anglia started operating in Bolivia a few years ago and has been expanding steadily since then. We have Official Examination Centres in 5 different departments of the country, including the capital cities of Sucre and La Paz.
Each year, we offer our various centres and members one paper-based English language exam session at the end of the school year (November/ December), and online exam sessions every month. Our exams include reading, writing, listening and speaking assessments at a variety of English language skills levels. The paper-based exams take place at official Anglia Examinations centres, whereas the newly launched online exams can be taken either from exam centres or from the comfort of the candidates’ home.
Every January, Anglia participates in the Bolivian English Teachers’ Association (B.E.T.A.) International Convention, which promotes professional development in the EFL field. It is thanks to our presence in such events that we manage to always reach more and more teachers in the country and keep spreading the Anglia word.
