Football Programme

SPEAK LIKE A LOCAL, PLAY LIKE A PRO!

Our newly developed course in collaboration with Pro: Direct Academy is designed to combine English learning with professional Football training. Guided by Malvern CELTA qualified teachers, and UEFA/FA licensed coaches, students will experience an unforgettable journey exploring British culture.

With three top UK destinations, the course is available in BRIGHTON, MANCHESTER, AND LONDON.

Our methodology aims to move the learning experience from the classroom to real-life situations, and we believe that sport gives students the best chance to use newly learnt language skills in a safe and exciting environment.

Students will attend a language course for 15 hours per week focused on football terminology and culture, interlaced with the Football Academy training programme. Our method of teaching immediately allows students to utilise what they’ve learnt on the pitch.
