Anglia Spain

Events

This month Anglia Spain was really busy putting the final touches on the most important annual events we will be having/attending next month. On the one hand, we are really proud to sponsor The 43rd TESOL Spain Convention, which will be held in Salamanca from 6th to 8th March. We are also sponsoring one of the most interesting marketing items at the conference: the Convention T-Shirts, which around 60 volunteers and some board members will be wearing during the 3 days of the Convention. Anglia’s T-Shirts are already in Salamanca waiting for the event to begin.


On the other hand, our own event, The III Anglia Exams Conference for Teachers of English, is also getting closer and closer, which means February found us all really snowed under with lots of things on all our various plates. Registrations are growing really fast and our International Speakers, Alice Osman, Chris Kunz and Ashley Liney are also looking forward to meeting all participants. A big THANK YOU to the whole team who have worked and are still working so hard to make all attendants happy to be part of our III International Conference.


Anglia Spain was present, with an Information Stand, at the first edition of Fereicam (1º Feria de Enseñanza de Idiomas de Castilla-La Mancha) in the Province of Albacete. Hugo Yepes looked after our stand very professionally, and not only were new contacts made, but potential schools approached us to request information about our ever growing organisation.


Exam Sessions

This month we have had exams in Almeria, at MANCUNIAN ACADEMY; Granada, at NOVI CENTRO DE FORMACION and Zaragoza, at SUPER SIMPLE ENGLISH. The exams are travelling to Anglia UK as we speak. We wish all our candidates the best of luck.


New Exam Centres

We would like to welcome ‘Ocean Cultural Services’ and ‘Excelentísimo Ayuntamiento de Tabernas’ to the Anglia Family.

As is the case with every new Anglia exam centre, we are in the process of assisting and informing them so that teachers gain confidence and get more and more familiar with the format of the exams as well as with how to begin the exam preparation process.

Anglia Visit to Local Communities

Yanina Parada, our Country Manager, has been visiting already-existing as well as potential Anglia exam centres in Spain since 15th February. The Cities and communities where we have so far had several meetings include Madrid, Alcala de Henares, Toledo, Cuenca, Valencia, Albacete, Cartegena, Castelló de Rugat, Murcia and Almeria. We have had really interesting and truly enlightening conversations with Directors of Studies and academy owners who loved the Anglia project and are about to jump on board.

A new marketing campaign was launched last month and the results are more than promising.


We have also visited our beloved Exam Centre in Valencia, APRENDE-INGLÉS. An oral mock exam session was delivered at the academy and students really enjoyed the experience. Thank you, Anna and Ray Brogden, for welcoming Yanina Parada, and being so nice to her.

Exam registration for the March session is now over The coordination of the exam session as well as the administrative work is being done so that everything runs smoothly during our forthcoming session.

Happy New Year!

We are busy planning the year ahead and looking forward to seeing a lot of you next month at the franchise review meeting. If you have not yet confirmed your place or have not submitted all your menu choices please can you email: jenna.ottley@anglia.org as soon as possible. 


The re-accreditation process with AIM Qualifications is finally complete and the first set of updated papers went live this month. This follows the re-branding of AIM Awards in September 2019 to AIM Qualifications. Since that time new AIM certificates have been issued. In January 2020, candidates were the first to take the re-accredited examinations at the top 4 levels – Intermediate (B1), Advanced (B2), Proficiency (C1) and Masters (C2). We would like to thank everyone who has helped in the re-accreditation process, whether through research, pre-testing or consultation. The updated AIM Handbook is available to view online here:

 https://www.anglia.org/franchise/Aim/AIM%20Qualifications%20Suite%20of%20ESOL%20International%20Qualifications%20Handbook%20V6.pdf

In addition to this it has come to our attention that there has been some confusion as to our accredited status with using 'Ofqual' and we need to be clear on the wording we use in all our material, including social media. Here is the wording we need to use "With our revised and updated examinations, our new marketing strategy and partnership with AIM, Anglia Examinations is ready to be the market leader in a step-by-step journey empowering people to dream in English."

Please also ensure your websites reflect the recent name change from AIM Awards to AIM Qualifications and Assessment group (AIM Qualifications). The name ‘AIM Awards’ should no longer be used.

Could you again please make this change as a matter of urgency to ensure compliance with our regulator.

News from Europe

Anglia Cyprus

Anglia Spain

January has been a busy month. We are getting ready for significant events such as our III Anglia Conference in Almeria as well as the annual franchise meeting in the UK, among others.

As for the Conference in Almeria, many teachers have already registered to attend our event, which will be free of charge, and not only Anglia Members are welcome to attend but the whole community. We expect to have people from all our already existent Centres as well as non-members. We are really looking forward to spread not only the Anglia Word but the International Speakers’ experience on different subjects. There’s still plenty of time to register, join us.     


This month classes restarted on 10th January in most schools and institutes after Christmas break.


We had an exam session in Granada at Novi Centro de Formación while the other Exam Centres preferred to leave their first 2020 session for February, for which Centres have already registered their candidates so administrative work is being done at the moment to coordinate this coming session.    

2020 Changes to Anglia Higher Levels

The office staff have been working hard on updating our members and making them aware of the exam changes which started to run this month and apply to the top four Anglia Levels – Intermediate (B1), Advanced (B2), Proficiency (C1) and Masters (C2). We assisted all our members at all times and provided them with all relevant documents to pave the way for the preparation of their students. 


Recognition in Spain

The Anglia Spain Team have worked and is still working really hard on recognition these days. Meetings have been held and new Provinces as well as Autonomous Communities are being contacted so that Anglia can grow even more and Certificates are accepted throughout the country.

Study Trip

The Study Trips we organise in partnership with Anglia Latin America every year is, once again, being a success. The group of students arrived in the UK on 12th January and they are now about to finish their third week. The two programmes we offer – students’ programme & teachers’ programme – are being attended as the group is made up of both! students and teachers. We highly recommend asking for information about the study trips to England, you can meet people from any Spanish speaking country in the group and, at the same time, make international friends at Chichester College where all the courses are given.


Anglia Spain will be present at the first edition of Fereicam (1º Feria de Enseñanza de Idiomas de Castilla-La Mancha in the Province of Albacete with our Stand. Hope to see you on 1st February. Pop by our stand.

PIE for Marian Venderbos

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 variety 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. Because of this experience, Marian was asked give the Anglia Speaking Test Assessor Training, as well. She is currently training a group of about 25 enthusiastic teachers.

A passion for Anglia seems to be running in the family, because together with her husband (the Anglia Coordinator at SG Sophianum in Gulpen) she has been a (head) teacher in several of our English Summer Schools.



Many boxes with free Anglia Open Day Packs have been sent to the Anglia schools.

Anglia Argentina


Candidates from all over the country have already taken or are about to sit their Anglia exams. We have had exam sessions from La Quiaca at the far north and Usuahia where the country ends in the south and many big cities and small towns in between. We are proud of the vast territory Anglia covers in Argentina.


Chris Kunz, President, and Estefanía Krogulec, International Liaison Officer, from Anglia Iberoamerica visited Universidad del Salvador (USAL) and presented Anglia Examinations to the Head and Coordinator of the Languages Department. According to resolution R. R. N° 804/19, USAL accepts Anglia certificates as proof of students’ level of English.

Apart from the already existing centres in Montevideo, Florida and Mercedes, this year we have also had brand new candidates from Las Piedras, San Jacinto and Maldonado.  Both teachers and students have expressed their enthusiasm in taking Anglia exams this year.



Anglia Bolivia


Candidates from Sucre and Oruro have taken their Anglia exam this past week. We are sure they will pass with flying colours.

Anglia Ecuador


According to the document MINEDUC – DNFC – 2019 – 00059 – OF, issued by the Ministry of Education of Ecuador, Anglia Advanced Exam (B2 in the CEFR) is accepted by the Ministry as proof of level of English. Such proof is required to anyone wishing to receive a University, College or Higher Education degree in that country. We are sure that this recognition will open the doors to more schools and schools of English in Ecuador to become Anglia centres.



Anglia Colombia

After the exam session Colombian students had last month, they are relaxing into their holidays.

Anglia Colombia has been growing steadily for the past two years and we do hope 2020 finds us ready to move forward even more. A new marketing campaign is being planned as we speak and we are sure it will be really successful.



We would like to thank all the Anglia exam centres within the Ibero-American Network for trusting us year after year, we wouldn’t be able to do it without you. To all of them who will be starting their summer holidays soon, we wish them high-class relaxing time and will see you all next year.

Last, but not least, we would like to give a fabulous recognition to all our examiners who, year after year, do their best to take Anglia to the next best level. We’ll raise our glasses with them next week and toast to a fantastic 2020.

Anglia Spain

November always sees the last exam registrations for every calendar year and 2019 is no exception. This December we will have a larger number of candidates in several parts of Spain than this time last year and all the years before that to.

ELT Events

At the very beginning of the month, Anglia Spain was present at ‘Jornada Formativa’ Sharing the Experience in Asturias. The event, which was organised by ACEIAS, was very successful and a lot of people got to know about our exams thanks to Pablo Keenan and Christiane Martínez, our Local Agents for the north of Spain. Thank you both for looking after our Anglia exhibition stand so professionally. We are undoubtedly going from strength to strength in the north of Spain.


We were also present at the 2nd ACEIA ELT Conference in Almeria, Andalusia. On this occasion a representative from ‘The English Centre - College of Languages’ manned the stand and made lots of new contacts. We are sure we will soon be having more and more centres in the area. Our exhibition stand was carefully and professionally looked after by Hugo Yepes. It was a real pleasure to sponsor this event; thank you ACEIA for the invitation.



Certificate Presentation Ceremony


The usual Certificate Presentation Ceremony we go to every year at Cool Kids, our main hub in Lanzarote, will this time be attended by Alice Osman, our Chief Examiner and Academic Director. The exam centre is delighted to welcome Alice as well as children and parents at the special venue they have hired for the occasion. The ceremony is being held on Friday 29th November. Congratulations to all the students who have passed their Anglia exams this year.


Forthcoming Exam Sessions

We are getting ready for our December exam session. It will be a very promising one. The centres had until 22nd November to register their candidates and the exam session will take place between 15th and 21st December.

There will be centres in a number of places in the country: ‘Novi Centro de Formación’ in Granada, ‘Super Simple English’ and ‘Liberty English School’ in Zaragoza, ‘Multimedia School’ in Galicia as well as ‘English Centre’, ‘Hello English’, ‘Mancunian Academy’ and ‘English Connection’ in Almeria. We wish the best to all candidates.


We would like to give a warm welcome to ‘Academia Travesía’ from Malaga. We hope your students will be sitting our exams very soon.

New Members

Although the school year is near its end, many school teachers and heads are getting in touch with Anglia’s Central Office in Latin America to learn more about Anglia Exams and how to start operating as Anglia members or exam centres. This past month we gave a whole-hearted welcome to new members in the provinces of Salta, Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Chubut and Mendoza in Argentina.

Exam Session


Exam sessions in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia and Peru are turning out to be a huge success. The sessions will continue through to 21st December with tons and tons of candidates aiming to have their level of English internationally accredited. Candidates from big cities as well as small towns have either already taken or are about to sit their Anglia exams this year. It has been, so far, a fantastic experience for all of them.

XV Anglia International Congress & Exhibition for English Language Professionals

Now that The XV Anglia International Congress & Exhibition for English Language Professionals has come to an end, we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all the members of the organising committee, all our participants and volunteers as well as all the speakers and sponsors who have contributed to the absolute success of the event.

Thank you also for your valuable feedback on all six plenary sessions presented by Gabriela Brun & Paola Cossu, Eugenia Dell’Osa, Chris Kunz, Ganna Matichyna, Alice Osman & Alastair Grant.

The I Anglia Examinations & C.E.S. Brandsen Teacher Development Day


The I Anglia Examinations & C.E.S. Brandsen teacher Development Day also took place this month. We would like to express our gratitude to Alice Osman, Chris Kunz and Ricardo Spizzo for their amazing plenaries during the event, and to Sarah Watson for her kind words during the event. Nothing would have been possible without Lorena Jordanov, Director of Centre for English Studies, who helped organising the event, which was well attended by teachers and students from Brandsen and neighbouring cities.



Alice Osman & Sarah Watson’s visit to Argentina


November found us all at the Ibero-America Central Office enjoying a visit from Alice Osman, Anglia UK Academic Director and Senior Examiner, and Sarah Watson, Head of International at Chichester College and CEO of Anglia Examinations. Together with part of the Anglia Team and the local representatives they visited exam centres, video-recorded some candidates doing speaking mock exams and delivered a training session for Anglia speaking assessors. They even had time to enjoy a true Argentinian asado.



News from San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina

It’s a pleasure to announce that our school “Colegio San Rafael de los Hermanos Maristas”, is launching a bilingual programme in 2020 with the support of Anglia Examinations.

In seeking to get the most from our teachers for this project, the selection is being closely counselled by the President of Anglia Examinations, Chris Kunz, who is helping us to ensure we are recruiting professionals who have potential to make the greatest contribution. It is also worth pointing that he is also supporting us with the selection of course books and the general organisation.

Moreover, Anglia Examinations will be helping with the teacher’s training that will take place next February. All students of “The Marist English Academy” will be taking Anglia exams at the end of each year so as to obtain an international certification. We are absolutely enthusiastic about this project and we truly appreciate Anglia's constant assessment.
