What languages do the coaches on your Football Language Programmes speak?

What qualifications do your English teachers have?

Will my child train with English players?

No. This program is exclusively for players whose native language is not English. However, your child will have a chance to make friends with English players from our other football programmes during evening activities at the residence.

Will my child be supervised at all times?

Yes, all players on our Football Language Programme are supervised 24/7 – be it by coaches during football training, teachers during language lessons or the Centre Manager (and other staff) when at the residence in the evenings.

Does my child need to do anything before they arrive?

All players will receive access to an online football-themed language placement test which they will need to complete. This will give us an initial indication of their existing English skills, and help us to advise on development areas before the programme starts. Pre-arrival online self-study materials will also be provided, covering football basics on fun interactive software.

Are you a native English speaker or able to speak English to an advanced level? Our intensive football-only training programmes might be better suited to you. Elevate your game to the next level with our Football Development Programme and Football Performance Programme for players aged 9-17.
