English & Football

Course Profile

Our English and Football Summer Courses enable older teenagers to build English skills in advanced academic study which focuses on university, SAT and IELTS preparation, while also developing football skills at the renowned FootballCV Academy.

Students will spend a stimulating summer meeting other students from around the world, refining English and academic skills in an enjoyable way, and taking part in an exciting football programme. Excursions and activities are also included.

English Language Overview

The English Language programme is delivered by Stamford Academy and is designed for active teenage students who like to work hard and play hard.

For many students, this will be their first visit to the UK and their first opportunity to use English in a ‘live’ setting. For this reason, the academic part of the course has two main aims:

  • to build confidence, vocabulary and fluency inside the classroom
  • to practise English in a variety of realistic (supervised) situations with native speakers outside of the classroom.

The activity programme aims to build students’ confidence, social skills and cultural awareness by:

  • learning about British culture in a safe, traditional English setting
  • improving and practising English language skills and spoken fluency with native speakers
  • building leadership and team-working skills in small groups with classmates
  • taking part in a range of adventurous, supervised, outdoor activities and excursions
