Fun English Activities 09.00-12.30 daily

English lessons take place at the Royal Grammar School, a 700 year old traditional English school in the centre of Worcester. Lessons focus on building confidence in speaking and listening in English. Included in your course:

  • 15 hours of English lessons per week
  • Qualified English teachers
  • Lessons relevant to language needed to play football
  • We develop your confidence in using English
  • Hot lunches included in school Monday – Friday

Sue Johns of Kingsway says …

The football related English language activities are designed to expose students to a wide variety of experiences which combine to give them confidence to use English, and skills to take away with them – important for those aspiring to play internationally.

Examples of classroom activities include:

  • A Worcester city ‘Discovery Challenge’ which encourages the students to explore and learn about the city by following a set of instructions, think on their feet, communicate with each other. Working in teams develops the communication skills needed on the football pitch too.
  • Functional lessons focusing on football as well as the foundations of English language. These will include:
    • quizzes in teams
    • vocabulary building to help on the pitch
    • training and nutrition advice
    • visits from coaches for a live Q&A session so the teenagers are exposed to ‘real’ English

“Through the week, language challenges are set and at the end of the week, we have a presentation session with speeches based on their achievements on the pitch as well as in the classroom. Lessons are designed to work closely with football training sessions so that the vocabulary can be used and understood.

The courses give students a wide and interesting variety of activities, all with a focus on English Language related to playing football to keep them stimulated and engaged – the key to making progress.”
