About us

English in Action!


Speaking English is magic! It opens doors and helps you communicate. 

We have been teaching English for more than 20 years in many countries worldwide. 

The advancement of technology has made teaching even more interesting. We can now talk to students on Skype and students can practise online, record their voice, drag and drop, and match the pictures. I hope that you will all benefit from these opportunities. Let's go!

Crossing Borders!

As a kid, listening to Patti Smith, Bob Dylan and Rod Steward really impressed me. The world became bigger with every song. Reading William Faulknew made my world more colourful and the fascinating combination of words broadened my scope. Everybody should learn at least one foreign language as it enables you to cross borders and reach out to other people in the world.

Anglia Exams & Speaking Tests

Step-by-Step to success with Anglia!
Anglia offers a comprehensive and structured programme of assessing English language competence, based on 10 different levels. With such a differentiated approach, every participant can work at a level suitable to their individual needs.
Schools determine how and to whom Anglia is offered, allowing for an even more customized programme.


Not everyone is in a good position to learn English. The EFKF is a charity that aims at supporting and encouraging children to learn English, so that they can take part in global communication and to give them the communicative skills and tools needed to share information with others. We have 6 international projects in Brazil, Ghana, India, Morocco, South Africa and Ukraine.

Become a member of the PIE Group

Our PIE network is developing rapidly. Not only have we seen an increase in the number and diversity of countries joining our network, the cooperation between network members has also increased. Building Bridges is the perfect example of global communication between students and teachers in our global network.

Several schools have also shown their interest in Tandem Teaching. If you join Tandem Teaching, an international teacher will accompany you during your lessons.

PIE Projects are a cooperation between the three Partners in English: Anglia, English Academy EU and the English for Kids Foundation. Together, we are known as Partners in English (PIE). Every month, we issue a news letter and share a news website, in which the English language and our global network play a crucial role. You are always invited to contribute!
