Extraordinary English! Courses with a Difference

Maggio 2013
English & Football

di ELCS - The English Language Consultancy Service

With over 3.5 billion fans worldwide, football is the most popular spectator sport on the planet. The Ancient Greeks and Romans played football as long ago as the 3rd century BC, as did the Chinese. Shakespeare even mentioned football in two of his plays and there was also an Italian version, Florentine kick ball, in the 16th century. This popular sport was not, however, welcomed by the authorities and many laws were passed banning the game.Obviously, none of these laws are in force today, which is why ELC Manchester Academy has been able to team up with UK premier league club, Manchester City, to offer a special English and Football course for players from 12+ years old.
The course includes 15 hours per week of English classes and eight hours of football coaching with a qualified FA coach at Manchester City’s training ground. Ball control and techniques for dribbling, passing, shooting and defending are all covered to help the students improve their confidence and accuracy. 11-a-side and 5-a-side games are also organised, along with a complete programme of activities and excursions. Accommodation is in single ensuite rooms with full board at one of Manchester University’s residences (family accommodation also available).
