Football is already a Universal language but now you can combine it with the highest quality English lessons in a world leading setting.
Volleys and verbs, goals and grammar, passing and punctuation will all be found in the same place at the same time as Barclays Premier League Champions, Manchester City team up with Experience English – providers of high-quality English language courses in the UK.
The three-year partnership will see the club host two-week football and English language courses in summer 2015. These will be delivered jointly by City Football Schools and Experience English at MCFC’s ground-breaking, state of the art Academy.
As part of the initiative, young people aged 9-17 from around the world will travel to Manchester to experience a new, exciting, fun and innovative programme designed specifically to improve their football and language skills in tandem.
The courses will offer participants a unique opportunity to discover first-hand what it is like being a new player at City and have this complemented by a bespoke language syllabus.
Gavin Rhodes, Head of City Football Schools, said: "We look forward to engaging with football fans from all over the world with a programme that is both highly educational and fun.
"The club's position as Champions of England, together with Experience English's record for academic excellence, will guarantee a first-class fortnight for all those who take part."
Roger Kerr, Sales and Marketing Manager at Experience English, added: "The English tuition will be specially tailored to the language of football, boosting students’ engagement with the materials and ensuring that the two components of the programme are mutually reinforcing.
"We are delighted to be working so closely with City and we are confident that this will be a truly inspirational course."
