What is the Anglo role?

We create a unique English immersion experience that allows Learners the real possibility to develop their fluency and confidence to speak English, while enjoying what is an incredible social and cultural experience.

Our Anglos are essential for bringing English to life through meaningful interactions and supporting the Learners by being patient and willing listeners. For Learners, the opportunities to practice and improve their English spans the whole day.

At our Campus, our Anglos are joined by our experienced English teaching and academic staff. Together they provide English learning that immerses the student in dynamic environment of natural conversation and linguistic support, offering the opportunity for continual practice – by speaking – with different native English and fluent English speakers, from around the English-speaking world.


For our Italian speakers to be immersed in the English language, our Anglos will need to:



Listen to and engage in real-life discussions


Support and encourage our Learners


Be able to offer Learners error corrections


Share stories, work on projects and explore topics


Help Learners develop confidence in English


Relax and enjoy the experience


Would I be suitable for the Summer Campus?

At Speak we aim for diversity among our Anglos – including age, nationality and experience. This ensures that our Italian speakers can enjoy talking with and learning from people from a wide range of backgrounds.

For the Speak Summer Campus we welcome applications from all college and university students and are particulary interested in applications from Anglos with a techincal/scientific background or experience, particularly in the fields of:


- Engineering (electrical, mechanical, structural etc)

- Mechatronics/robotics

- Design and Industrial design

- Sciences, Life sciences and IT


Our Anglos will be engaged throughout the day in conversation and activities. So, if you are sociable, love conversing, meeting new people and can help learners to feel at ease then you are the right person to be part of the Anglo community at Speak.

It is also important that you are able to travel independently and use the internet in order to complete our online application, correspond with us and plan your trip.


Speak welcomes mother-tongue or fluent English speakers from all over the world, with a broad range of English accents and backgrounds.


The Speak Summer Campus is looking for Anglos of between 18-30 years of age, bringing together students from diverse experiences and cultures.


From a range of backgrounds with a preference for those from technical backgrounds, our Anglos may be studying, finishing their studies or already working.
