This month we have had exams in Zaragoza, Granada, Almeria and Malaga. As it is becoming more and more commonplace in Spain these days, this past exam session had a combination of paper-based and online exams.

Good luck to all the candidates!

Registration for November has just closed so we are now focusing on the administration phase of the exam session.





Anglia Exams International E-Congress & Exhibition

These past weeks we have had a large number of registrations for the XVI Anglia Examinations International E-Congress & Exhibition for English Language Professionals. This year’s line-up of International Speakers includes Steve Bannister (Anglia Examinations UK), Alice Osman (Anglia Examinations UK), Chris Kunz (Anglia Exams Ibero American Network), Ganna Matichyna (Books Services & Express Publishing), Jenny Dooley (Express Publishing), Alastair Grant (Anglia Examinations Ibero-American Network), Ashley Liney (Jolly Phonics - Spain), Alejandra Ottolina (Macmillan Education) and Joseph Schlefke (Books Services & Express Publishing).

Webinars

We are offering a new Webinar, free of charge for Anglia Members, which will take place next month. On this occasion, Silvana Calzia will be presenting on ‘Multiple Intelligences Tasks in Collaborative Learning Environments’. Registration is now open and there are very few seats left! We hope you can seize this opportunity and join us one more time.  




New Exam Centres

We would like to welcome ‘The Spot Academia’ from Alicante (Valencian Community) as well as ‘Intereduca’ from Sotogrande, Cadiz (Andalusian Community) to the Anglia Family. Thank you for jumping on board our boat!





Recognition

As we mentioned last month, Anglia Certificates are now accepted to apply for Public Calls for Employment and be part of ‘Correos’ (the Spanish National Post Service). This is well-deserved nationwide recognition which motivates the Anglia Spain Team every day to keep up the good work since tangible results show we are on the right track. We continue submitting recognition-related documents to various organisations to encourage students across the country to sit an Anglia Exam. We hope we can share more good news with you very soon!



Anglia Cyprus




From the 10th to the 18th of October, after many weeks of intense preparation, our students took their oral and written examination all over the island.

The exams took place under strict hygiene and distance regulations. Multiple exam centres were used to reduce crowding and all candidates, invigilators and coordinators had to wear masks and follow the health and safety protocols.

We are pleased with the outcome and we would like to wish everyone good luck with their exam results. Also, we are extending our gratitude to every single one of you, who made this possible – team members, invigilators, school staff, parents, teachers and students of course, for their hard work, diligence and sense of responsibility.

Thank you, everyone!

Life goes on, so let’s keep calm, be responsible and follow all safety measures.

Protect yourself and others, stay strong, stay sane! 



News from Asia

Anglia The Philippines

 

Anglia PH through American Institute for English Proficiency launches a campaign:

 “You can’t write and speak what you don’t have.”

The campaign aims to rekindle and reconnect with learners, professional and corporates clients, to continue to strive for excellence. It is understandable that we have all been affected by the global pandemic, but it doesn’t mean that we put on hold our plans in providing personal and professional growth.

It is this time that we really must be smart with where we spend our hard-earned money, and the best investment for that at this point is to use it on us – invest in our ourselves and enhance our communication skills, so that when we do decide to change a career, study abroad, and continue with our plans when the global pandemic has been better managed, we already have the skills set needed to make that change. We can produce and deliver the requirements needed to obtain that certificate.

This November, Anglia PH via the American Institute for English Proficiency, aims to help you and your company in achieving the English language proficiency goals required to study abroad, advance in your career, or boost your corporate goals in sales or customer service.

The struggle is real when you need to answer questions, write documents, and deliver presentations in English when you don’t have the right words and structure to follow. The lack of vocabulary and structure makes you feel less confident when facing fluent speakers and going into impromptu presentations.

We have also come across many clients and professionals failing in the speaking and writing sections of the IELTS, leading them to stall their migration plans or postpone their education abroad.

We have helped companies whose employees were struggling with accuracy and efficiency when it comes to communicating in English with their clients, colleagues, and even stakeholders. Our classes don’t just focus on grammar, but we place importance in developing comprehension skills and critical thinking. We, at Anglia PH, will be opening classes this November to ensure that despite the global pandemic, you will be able to achieve your goals. 

Take classes with us as we have over 15,000 + enrollees and with almost 14 years of classroom and corporate teaching experience. Improve your communication skills by enrolling in our graded classroom instructions.

We believe that you don’t need to take an internationally required certification multiple times to pass. We make sure that if you plan to take it, we target the core of your proficiency.

Email us now at helpdesk@aiepro.org, call us or send us an SMS at 09177019520 or 09178442437 via VIBER.

This year, all mock exams are being conducted virtually, via Zoom.

The First Anglia Language and Culture Exchange between students from Argentina and Peru has sadly come to an end.

We are most certain it will be another huge success!





Anglia Argentina

Anglia’s Online from Home Exams have been launched in Argentina as well as in all other countries within the network and the large amount of interest expressed by all our members has just been impressive. We’re now working around the logistics of all the forthcoming exam sessions, but we can anticipate tons and tons of exam registrations this year.

Our campaign to widen the Anglia exam centres network in Colombia is working really well. We are getting in touch with schools, private institutes as well as universities across the country.

Meetings are being held as we speak and we foresee an even brighter future in this country. Also, we are in close contact with a large number of new universities so they start recognising and accepting Anglia certificates and students can, therefore, take an Anglia exam to show proof of their English level.



Anglia Chile

The new schools in our network, Colegios Pedro de Valdivia, have had a flurry of activity this month. Around a thousand students have done Anglia Placement Tests, hundreds of parents and teachers have attended informative meetings, and we are now setting up exam dates for all of them.

Anglia Cyprus

Limassol/Larnaca

Greetings everyone,

Schools are now open after months of disruption and time at home. Students have to adapt and get used to an environment which is rather different due to the COVID-19 measures. Social distancing measures have been prioritized and face masks must be worn at all times when at school.

At the office, we are currently working on getting ready for our October examination session. Again, we have to take all necessary steps to protect the candidates and the teachers against the coronavirus (Covid-19), always in line with the Cyprus Government's measures.

We too, would like to wish you all to have a healthy, productive and happy new school year! Let's hope we will soon return to normality. Stay healthy and safe.

Verónica Cabañas, Coordinator of the Primary Department at our Anglia San Rafael Open Centre in San Rafael, Mendoza, has shared their latest news with us:

Greetings from San Rafael, Mendoza Argentina.

Our workload at Colegio San Rafael doesn’t seem to be getting any lighter these days.. At the Marist English Academy we continue working with our remote classes. From the beginning of this pandemic we started adjusting our classes to the current times with personalized spaces and permanent feedback.

The Marist English Academy opened its doors for the first time under these difficult circumstances, but the initial proposal is intact and we are convinced that we will reach the original aims by working with effort and commitment. The educational community at the Academy has understood that we must take this circumstance as an opportunity, and continue inspiring our students who have always been there ready to learn.

Last August, the Primary Department organized a Talent Show so as to allow our students to show their talents in different areas: Music, Art, Sports and Cooking. The main objectives were to develop the students’ capacities that allow them to be more confident and at the same time to foster the development of students’ autonomy. Anglia Examinations also accompanied us by presenting certificates to the winners.

September was also a month of hard work. This time our primary students from 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grades had the chance to participate in some workshops organized Anglia Examinations so as to help them become more confident for the coming exams. This year, around 230 students from primary and secondary years will be participating and they are already working hard. Once more, we are ready for the challenge in Covid times.



Instituto Babel, our Local Agents in Corral de Bustos & surrounding area, in Córdoba, have shared their news with us:

Hi Anglia Team! 

We do hope you are safe and sound during this hard time!

We are sending just a few words about our experience in the Anglia Latam exchange.

We are very grateful for all the opportunities you continuously offer to our students and teachers

The unique opportunity of intercultural exchange and speaking.practice you are offering.our students from Argentina and Perú is turning to be not only interesting and motivating , but also a great chance to share among peers , have a great time and enjoy the fun and well-planned activities by Estefania. 

Thank you Anglia for being caring and sharing with our students, being with us through these months and giving students moments of true connection.

Lucrecia and Josefina



Silviana Cristaldo, Head of Britannia School of English in Caleta Olivia, Santa Cruz, shares with us:

In September, Estefania Krogulec, International Liaison  Officer, and Guadalupe Rodriguez, Operations manager, offered two very productive parents’ meetings in order to introduce Anglia Exams to the families who are new at Britannia Institute and to those students who had no information about these renowned  international exams. 

We truly appreciated all your excellent management of what turned out to be successful and highly stimulating meetings for all of us.

Undoubtedly, events like these help us to considerably  strengthen the bonds between families, teachers and Anglia Ibero-America



Anglia  Uruguay

Apart from the General English Exams levels at B1, B2, C1 & C2 levels, students in Uruguay can now present their Anglia International Business Certificates levels B1, B2 & C1-C2 as proof of Language Proficiency at the Secondary School Education Council. This, without a shadow of a doubt, is a step forward not only recognition-wise but it also shows how big Anglia is getting in Uruguay.



Anglia Bolivia

Luz Marina Arenales Mendez, our Local Agent in the region of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, has kindly shared these words with us:

We are in The Third Season of the Anglia Exams registration campaign in Bolivia. We invite school, college and university students to participate not only in online exams from their own comfortable houses, but also paper-based Anglia Exams.

The invitations are sent via e-mails and massive advertising on social media. This is the only way to reach a lot of people. Communication means such as the telephone and the internet are the best way to make our exams known.  The Third Registration Campaign for Anglia Exams has reached over one million people. We anticipate great results, but It is well-known that Anglia Exams are the most accessible exams for get an International Certificate.

Anglia Peru

Chris Kunz, President of Anglia Ibero-America, has delivered one of his Webinars for Peruvian Members. Over 300 attendees thoroughly enjoyed his presentation.



Anglia Colombia

Anglia members in Colombia are getting more and more interested in our brand new Online Exams. We’ve received several queries and answered all of them.

Exam results for the students who took their Anglia Exam last month have arrived. Congratulations to all the candidates who passed their tests.

On September 26th, Chris Kunz, our President within the Ibero-American Network, will be participating in an online event organised by Pedro Cruz of PESOL Centre, our new Local Agent in Colombia. The topic of discussion is Blended Learning and every speaker will have the chance to share their ideas on different issues suggested by the organisers. Thank you PESOL Centre for inviting our President.


Meetings with the authorities of Universidad Colegio Mayor in Cundinamarca, Bogota, were held throughout the month. We are positive about all the presentations we gave and hopefully we will be announcing a new Exam Centre in Colombia very soon.


Anglia Chile

We are smoothly moving along in our partnership with the Colegios Pedro de Valdivia network of Schools in Santiago de Chile. We have recently had an informative meeting with Parents of candidates from all four schools, where we supplied them with information about Anglia and the coming Exam sessions, and gave them the opportunity to ask questions and clear doubts.

News from Asia

Anglia Malaysia

The Malaysian team has attracted media coverage from the no.1 newspaper in the country - The Star.


It's a big boost to creating national awareness of Anglia examinations. 

Another round of teacher training has just been done to prepare them for the rolling out of our Anglia courses from pre-schoolers to adult learners.


"The education sector in Malaysia is robust and returning to pre-Covid days. We are planning more marketing activities in the coming months," said Richard Lim, the Malaysian representative of the Anglia international network. 

Anglia The Philippines 

Greeting from Anglia Philippines.

With the quarantine becoming a lot more lenient and restrictions being lifted in the next coming weeks, Anglia PH is looking forward to conducting face-to-face classes once again. We will start opening two classes at 1pm–3pm and another one from 3pm to 5pm, which will be happening daily except weekends. The classes will be a little smaller than usual to observe government mandate on space utilization. Despite these changes together with the use of PPE’s in class, we ensure the same dynamic energy in conducting our English learning sessions.

For more information of our classes, please visit www.aiepro.com


Anglia Taiwan

"Anglia tests have been very different in 2020 as the COVID-19 epidemic spreads globally. However in  Taiwan we feel very fortunate because even though our schools resumed later than normal after Chinese New year,  we have not been required to lockdown and therefore is a successful example of continuing to maintain open campuses. This has allowed LiveABC to run our test days even though registered students may be somewhat lower and of course we have had to require more rules like wearing masks. This is not easy as candidates have been required to wear the masks for the entire period of the test as can be seen from the attached photos. This is an inconvenience and uncomfortable but we are thankful that the students and parents welcomed the safety rules and also that grades don’t seems to have been effected.

Let’s hope that Covid -19 epidemic ends soon and that we can continue to offer Anglia tests in Taiwan, Asian and the world"

Anglia Cyprus




Greetings from Cyprus

We are only a few days away from the start of the new school year and we look forward to catching up with our daily schedules. This particular summer break has given all of us the chance to recharge and refuel as well as self-reflect and get ready to face any future challenges in and out of the classrooms. 

On a personal note, the beautiful Cyprus summer has washed away the stress, the worries and negative thoughts we have experienced these past six months, like a good therapy session ;) I feel confident and positive and can't wait to start teaching again at school. I hope colleagues, students and parents everywhere had the chance to relax, get their mind off things and prepare themselves to face the new reality. 

Once again, good luck to everyone with their exam results and best wishes for a healthy, productive and happy new school year!

Exam Sessions

Even though summer is currently at its peak and the temperature is soaring, exams do not seem to take a rest.

In August, we had face-to-face Exam Sessions in Almeria, Orense, Zaragoza and Roquetas de Mar. Besides, a new online Exam Session also took place in Granada.  We hope all the candidates pass with flying colours!

   

Anglia Congress

The XVI edition of the Anglia Examinations International E-Congress & Exhibition for English Language Professionals was launched earlier on this month.

Anglia Examinations holds this event annually for our members in all the countries within the Ibero-American Network. This time, being quite a peculiar year, the event will be offered online and, as ever, it is free of charge for all our Network members.         

We look forward to seeing you all at the E-Congress!

Webinars

One more Webinar is being advertised as we speak. On this occasion, Ms. Lorena Muzzicato of Teaching Resources will be delighting our Anglia Members with her ‘Turning Lockdown Stress and Anxiety into Motivation and Action’ session. This online event is free of charge for all our Anglia Members. We’re sure you don’t want to miss it! Thank you very much, Lorena, for your support!

New Exam Centres

We would like to welcome to the Anglia family ‘Computer Soft’, with schools in Malaga and Cordoba, as well as ‘New College Granada’ from Granada. Thank you for choosing us and jumping on board our boat during this difficult time!

     

Going from strength to strength

Anglia Spain has never stopped contacting potential schools, kindergartens, academies and universities, which may well be ready to become Official Anglia Exam Centres soon enough. We keep assisting and accompanying those who are part of our family - being close and helping in the process is our motto.


Anglia Netherlands

On June 18, about 7,000 students at 170 schools took part in Anglia Exams & Speaking Tests. Next week, the students will receive their well-deserved Anglia certificate. Congratulations!

Online Platform widely used

Due to the corona pandemic, Dutch schools were forced to close their doors and students mainly had (online) lessons from home in the period before the summer holidays. Several concerned parents of students who will start secondary education this new school year, contacted us with their concerns that, in many cases, teaching English hadn’t been a priority for primary school teachers dealing with remote learning.

We immediately decided to help, and thanks to our R&D team, we managed to set up a preparation course specifically for this group of students (age approximately 11-12 years old). As our own platform can be used even more widely than we previously thought, this course was also a great fit here.

Based on the content of a combination of Anglia Primary and Preliminary levels, we have created an online course, based on all parts of the Grammar & Structures List of the Anglia Handbook for Teachers + interactive quiz parts + breakout room sessions. We wish all participants good luck at their new schools!


Japanese students will join our Masterclasses

Stay safe and stay connected! Now that people and students from around the globe are at home, it is important to stay connected. And let’s be honest; how many of your students actually communicate in English in their daily lives? We believe that international and intercultural communication make your live more interesting. Therefore we have brought international students and teachers together on our platform, during a range of Summer Masterclasses. Three morning sessions, based on various Anglia levels.

Our Summer programme has almost finished, but we are happy that groups of students from Japan will join our Masterclasses in week 36 and 37 (Anglia levels A1 and A2). We expect to welcome individual students from Turkey Ukraine and Indonesia as well.

We invited you to join as well, this session, or a separate one, to actively participate with a small group of your students, or as Anglia Representative to see how it goes. Feel free to contact us: arnold@anglia.nl.


Supported by the European Council: European Day of Languages

 “Celebrate Language” is the theme of the activities for the European Day of Languages on the 26th of September. As the official representative of EDL in the Netherlands, Anglia and the English for Kids Foundation are organizing two online, corona-proof, fun events for schools and teachers! Don’t let the name fool you: Students and teachers from outside the European Union or Europe are just as welcome as European friends!

 

1.       Firstly we have the #CelebrateLanguage photo contest. The idea is simple: a group of students or a classroom take a picture that reflects the theme of language celebration. By uploading it to social media with the #Celebrate language and tagging our organization in the picture, they automatically enter in the contest to win an EFKF goodie bag. There are no participation costs and it’s a modern way to visibly promote language!

2.       Secondly we have the Celebrate Language Online Quiz! Thanks to the support of Anglia NL, we will use their online platform to organize an online quiz where anyone across the world can participate. Questions will revolve around the Celebrate Language idea, with an international and intercultural focus. No preparation is required, and classes of students between the ages of 11-15 can participate at no cost!

Anglia Malaysia

Anglia in Malaysia announces a new milestone. The Anglia flag has been raised in Penang.

This is a very important territory for the growth of Anglia as Penang is an important economic hub in northern Malaysia.  The team has been careful to choose the right partner to work with - that's The Learning Kingdom Education group of schools. An MoU ceremony had been done to ink the strategic collaboration.



Anglia The Philippines

Greeting from Anglia Philippines.

"Assess, Adapt, and Apply"

Anglia Philippines has definitely chosen to pursue the three A's. We have maintained business continuity to all our current and future clients, and ensure that our passion for teaching the English language will not waver. We have changed our business model to adapt to the new normal and embraced how business operates during these uncertain times. We have shifted most of our classroom sessions to a digital one, breaking down barriers to connect with other learners from different parts of the globe.

ASSESS

WE have assessed that language learning will be different at this time, and we understand that our students will not be able to come to us, join our classes, and participate in cultural immersions.  Furthermore we have assessed that as more and more people become unemployed due to the pandemic, there is a greater need for language teaching training. 

ADAPT

We have decided to offer CITE to potential English teachers.  We have begun to introduce the CITE program to the Philippine market.  We have conducted a free training session to English teachers who are looking to go through a an examination and certification process.

APPLY

Our CITE program includes at 120-hour virtual training and internship or apprenticeship.  This job training  addition  is what makes our program unique compared to a regular TESOL program that doesn't include classroom teaching experience.

We are still in the process of fully executing our CITE program.  However, we have started other online programs such as CXL (Communication Excellence Lab), CXY (Communication Excellence for the Youth), CXS (Communication Excellence Self-Paced), PSE (Public Speaking Excellence), and CWIG (Critical Writing and Intensive Grammar).  We also have digital content, so students from different time zones can choose to study and improve their language on their preferred time and on their own pace. 

AIEP and Anglia PH aim to bring our services closer to you. We hope to see each and everyone in our class or at our other Anglia partners all over the globe.

Anglia Taiwan

August saw the first Young Learner tests take place at the American Language Village (ALV) in Taiwan. The candidates  have been taking part in the summer camp which normally attracts 4,000 students between the ages of 6 and 14 from all over Taiwan. Understandably, this year has been very challenging especially as it is the first year for ALV to use Anglia tests due to the coronavirus  pandemic. Earlier in the year there was further concern that the camp would not be able to take place at all and though the number of participants is only 50% of the usual number, thankfully Taiwan has managed the pandemic well which enabled schools to re-open shortly after Chinese New Year and allow for registrations.

Much of the preparation for the test including training examiners and invigilators as well as the administrative preparation has taken place between David and Merak Clarkson online which is a first as they would normally like to meet new centre staff prior to the first test. On the whole things have gone very smoothly and we have high expectations for further tests in the near future in cooperation with Leo and his staff team at American Language Village who have done an excellent job.

Finally well done to all the ALV students!

Anglia Argentina

New Anglia Members in Argentina

This month’s newsletter finds us giving a whole-hearted welcome to the Anglia family to two new Exam Centres: HDL English Institute in Jujuy, one of the far-north provinces, and Oxford House from Tierra del Fuego, as far south as you can ever get to in Argentina.

The XVI Anglia International E-Congress & Exhibition for English Language Professionals

We have now officially launched our annual Congress! Nine Internationally renowned Speakers will be offering plenary sessions to a truly international audience. This event usually takes place in the City of Buenos Aires, but this year, for the first time, we are going 100% ONLINE, and we expect even larger attendance, since there are no location limitations to attend regardless of where you are physically based.

Cultural Exchange Programmes

During the months of July and August, a group of Argentinean students form Euskal Echea Secondary School in Buenos Aires, Argentina, took part in an exchange programme made up of a series of 5 meetings with Chinese students from Shanghai Yong Chang Private School in China. These meetings were moderated by Ms Estefania Krogulec, International Liaison Officer, Ms Li Xin, Head Coordinator of the School International Programme and Ms Gabriela Racca, Head of the Secondary School English Department – they were all very kindly assisted by Ms Claudia Beltrán, International Partnerships Manager at Chichester College, England.

The 16 year-old students really enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the geography, history, culture and traditions of Argentina and China. Hopefully, we’ll soon see the Argentinean students sightseeing in Shanghai and the Chinese ones experiencing South American culture in Buenos Aires.

The teachers thank Anglia and Chichester College for this one-of-a-kind activity.

They say it BEST!

Mirta Sarchione, our Local Agent in Pergamino, Buenos Aires, has shared some latest news with us:

Informative meetings

It´s already known that Anglia ESOL Examinations offers a wide range of paper-based Exams. Now everybody is celebrating the launch of the new General English online exams, which is a great achievement.

This is the time in Argentina when decisions about final exams are being made, so myself, as a Local Agent, decided to organize informative online meetings for all my Anglia members, in order to keep them all updated.

Two sessions were offered, and the results were more than positive.  Coordinated by Estefanía Krogulec (International Liaison Officer) and Guadalupe Rodriguez (Operations Manager) respectively, both sessions were a great success.

Considering that it is uncertain what the pandemic situation in our country will be like in the months ahead, Estefanía and Guadalupe explained in detail all the options Anglia has to offer for the final exams. They also gave clear explanations about the implementation of the new General English online Exams. 

We have to remain positive about the future and go on working hard all together.


        


Webinars

We’ve had yet more International Speakers offering webinars for Anglia Members, at no cost. We are very grateful to Laura Schmutz & Sharing Materials, Luciana Fernandez & Cengage Learning, and Lorena Muzzicato & Eager Beaver / Neuro Talent for helping us continue offering all our members excellent professional development sessions.

Anglia Columbia

 Anglia in Colombia is growing steadily. Recently, we have contacted existing Anglia Exam Centres to help them have a more active role again after the pandemic. Meetings were held and are still being held while new projects are also being developed these days.    

This month we’ve had exams in Chia, within the Cundinamarca district in Bogota. We wish the best of luck to all the candidates.

Throughout the month, we’ve got in touch with potential schools and institutes which could easily become Exam Centres in Colombia. We are working really hard to finally place Anglia in Colombia on the front burner.

Last but not least, Chris Kunz, our President within the Ibero-American Network, has been invited to take part in a monthly ‘Chat Meeting’/ ‘Discussion Group’ organised by our brand new Local Agent in Colombia, Pedro Cruz of PESOL Centre.

Our newest Members in the country, the network of Schools in Santiago de Chile: Colegios Pedro de Valdivia Agustinas, Providencia, Las Condes & Pañealolen, have attended an initial training session for teachers & coordinators, with Guadalupe Rodríguez & Estefanía Krogulec, where they received guidance to implement Anglia Exams in their schools, and how best to prepare candidates for our exams!

Good News we have managed to acquire  ALTE Institutional Affiliation

Anglia Cyprus

Limassol/Larnaca

On 18th and 19th July, 2020 we had our end-of the year exams in Limassol, Larnaca and Paralimni. Despite the circumstances, we have managed to have, yet again, a very successful session. Through hard work, collaboration, careful planning and determination we have kept our promise that we will come out of this unprecedented period stronger and closer. We have taken all necessary steps to protect the candidates and the teachers against the coronavirus (Covid-19), always in line with the Cyprus Government's measures, and the end result was more than we could have expected.

Paphos/Nicosia

What a whirlwind 2020 has been!

The Anglia oral and written exams took place in July across the island under strict hygiene and distance regulations.

Our main priority was the safety of all our students, examiners, invigilators and ushers, of course, therefore we decided to organise smaller sessions in all four districts.

Everybody came to the exam centres with a big smile, feeling positive and confident. We are very pleased about this and proud of all our youngsters and their teachers for all their hard work and competence to adjust to the new ‘rules’.

We would like to wish everyone good luck in their exam results, a nice and relaxing summer and all the best for the new school year in September.

Stay well, keep safe and remain positive!

Also, and by public demand, we decided to organise a couple of webinars on a different time slot.

We expect to keep registering candidates and to grow more with this modality which suits students perfectly.

We have also begun registering students for our forthcoming exam session in August.

Words by our Peter Vooght, Anglia Agent in Zaragoza

Despite the current situation with Covid-19, students from across the City of Zaragoza have signed up for their ANGLIA exams for August, with others about to take their exams next week at United Academy of English and Super Simple English.

Cultural Exchange Spain/China

Words by Alejandro Salas of Escuela Municipal de Idiomas de Tabernas

For the past three months, a group of eleven students from our Anglia member “Escuela Municipal de Idiomas de Tabernas” (Spain) has engaged in a cultural exchange with “Yong Chang School” in Shanghai (China), by means of a digital net meeting platform. During this period, students from both sides have been performing a wide range of common activities, both on-line and off-line, such as presentations about their respective countries, discussions, games and a digital diary, to name just a few. The participants have enjoyed this initiative pretty much and have also built bonds of friendship during the lockdown days.

News from Latin America

Throughout Latin America, we all continue to work from home, with very few exceptions in some cities/ countries within the Network.

Online Exams

We continue to offer several informative meetings for Anglia Members and other interested parties. These sessions aim to supply all participants with details and answer their questions regarding Anglia Online Exams.

They say it best…

We’ve asked our local Agents in the Network to share a few words about their work in the past few months and this is what they have shared:

“Our Local Agent in Neuquén and Río Negro, Gilda Bosso, in collaboration with ISG ST GEORGE - Exam Centre since 2004 - has recently launched a new site, supporting Anglia Examinations with a microsite within it. This brand new site offers teachers, students and institutions updated information about Anglia Exams and how to prepare for them during this COVID-19 pandemic. This tool also offers resources and tips on how to readapt teaching practice using ISG virtual campus to support those students who are interested in the variety of exams offered by Anglia (Exams on paper, oral sessions through Zoom and ONLINE exams).

Anglia Exams are being offered in the north of Patagonia, reaching not only the main cities but also those cities further afield, where teachers as well as private and public institutions need international qualifications. 

ISG is profoundly proud of working within the Anglia Ibero-American Network. 



“Part of the first half of this current year has been very unusual under the Covid-19 pandemic, and now that it´s winter school break in Argentina, as an Anglia Local Agent, I made up my mind to reflect on what´s been going on in this area.

As is the case every year, at the beginning of the school period, I get in contact with teachers, coordinators, heads of schools and institutions, to offer them relevant information about Anglia Exams and how to implement them, and to keep them updated on the latest news. This year has been no exception. There have been many interviews and we have all been in very close communication ever since. As a result, new members have become part of the ever-growing Anglia family.

When the Pandemic appeared on scene, the physical contact with all the Anglia members turned into virtual exchanges, without exception. Soon afterwards, Anglia Ibero-America was present to help and support them all, which was a very well received gesture.

But, the uncertainty about what was going to happen with final exams started to grow among teachers. It was then that I got lots of queries from most of our members. Among all these doubts, a light of hope appeared: Anglia Online Exams! Then, relieved teachers, schools and institutions started to plan ahead with a clearer purpose in mind. They were invited to take part in the online sessions that Anglia offered to explain and give detailed information about these new online as well as paper- based exams, and start planning the next round of exams in our country.  Many have already participated in them, and, I´m sure many more will take their part in the sessions to come.

The second part of the school period is starting soon, and it will be one filled with great decisions. We will be working together to do our best and keep giving our advice and support to all our Anglia members.

Mirta Sarchione, Anglia Local Agent - Pergamino. Bs. As. Argentina


Develop Consulting Group, Local Agents in the North of Argentina, started an online training project in Technical English for professionals, in order to promote our Business English Exams, since they are a key aspect in the working world and personal performance.

Verónica Pema, Director of DCG, highlights: “We aim at developing professional standards for those who want to go the extra mile in their career, as well as empower young professionals who are looking to start working. Nothing better than preparing for a job challenge by certifying their knowledge of Business English, with such an international organisation”.

The first Workshop, about Legal English, at Intermediate level or above, will be held by Translator and Professor Mariana Quiroga, specialized in Business and Legal English; and it will cover an area of great interest nowadays: Telecommuting. The main topic will be: Implications of working from home and Legal aspects of remote working.

Anglia supports DCG in this creative project by sponsoring our workshops, to reach more international professionals who aspire to excellence.”
