About Anglosphere

We at AngloSphere recognise the enormous impact that the English language and Anglo-Saxon culture have made on our world. English has become the international language of communication and its use is continuing to expand rapidly.

 

Many people in Agadir already have a reasonable grasp of English. If you live or work in Agadir, our aim is to bring the English language and English-speaking cultures to you (in a way that you can touch, taste, see and hear). Our training services and events are geared towards those who already know some English – to help them develop their English even further.

 

However, even if you are a beginner at English we provide classes that will help you quickly understand the basics, so that you can get involved with all of our other activities and events.
