This summer City Football Schools and Experience English are delivering a series of exciting football and language programmes in the heart of Manchester City’s Etihad campus. The City Football Language School is a 2-week summer programme for children aged 9-17 where you will have the opportunity to train like a Manchester City football player at the world-class City Football Academy facility.
In this unique football and language programme, English development and football coaching are completely aligned. The 1st week of the 2-week programme will focus on Individual skills and development, and in the 2nd week players will move on to focus on Team Development skills.
The City Football Language School offers a large range of interactive activities and lessons designed to reflect the day-to-day life of a professional football player. The aim of every activity is to enable you to develop English communication skills and football skills in an authentic setting, covering all key components of reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Activities include exciting interactive sessions such as training for media and press conferences first-hand in the City Football Academy’s media centre, learning about the value of nutrition in the Academy’s kitchens, discovering the importance of strength and conditioning in the gym, analysing match tactics in the lecture theatre, learning about diversity and cultural differences in your class, and much, much more. The 2-week programme will end in an ultimate finale involving a series of team tournaments and a final match, with team photos.
