Football and English Summer Programme at City Football Academy, Manchester
City Football Language School is a high quality football and English language summer programme for kids and teenagers aged 9-17 in Manchester, located at City Football Academy, the home of Manchester City.
The 2-week summer football school takes place at City Football Academy which is located in the heart of Manchester City's Etihad Campus. With access to outstanding training facilities shared by the Club's First Team, Women's Team and Academy teams alike, CFLS players will train and develop in a truly authentic football environment. Co-designed by City Football Schools and Experience English, the programme follows a unique structure that has been created with an emphasis on improving real-world communication skills in English, through immersing players in a variety of different football professions both on and off the pitch.
Combining 30 hours of football training and English language sessions per week, football and English activities are fully integrated and aligned to help young players both develop their skills to their highest potential and also remember what they have learnt through kinaesthetic activities such as media interviews, punditry, commentating and journalism projects.
Accredited by the British Council and Eaquals, this innovative football and English summer programme is delivered by a high-quality coaching team from City Football Schools who are experienced in Manchester City's philosophy and methodology, and a professional language teaching team from Experience English who have a real passion for football.
