Designed for children with little experience of either, our Kickers class is the perfect light introduction to football and English. Our fun and energetic classes are 45 minutes long, to maximise students’ attention spans. We focus on simple and easy to understand English instructions, combined with football drills designed to be the perfect introduction to the sport.
Playmakers are likely to already have some exposure to English and football, and our first sessions are to asses their level of ability and then grow from there. We place a heavy focus on building a child’s speaking confidence, whilst also learning new themes, words, phrases and grammar every week. Classes will be repetitive to help students master the main points, but mix different football and English concepts every week to ensure it stays fresh.
Strikers typically has even more experience with English, and their physical skills are more advanced, meaning each session is at a higher intensity. Our aim in this age group is to fill in any gaps in English ability, whilst pushing students to interact with each other in English too. As students develop, they will feel more of an emphasis on football, as the English side of the class becomes more natural.
