The World Cup 2018 may well officially kick off later today but, unofficially it started here in Ilfracombe on Sunday!
Students from Italy, Spain and France joined their English PALS in a tournament warm-up as part of the Country Cousins Football Programme.
Like all of our other programmes, our football programme has a particular focus on a chosen sport or activity which still providing the very highest standard of English language tuition.
During the football programme, students develop key skills such as passing, ball control, running with the ball, heading, shooting, ball keeping, strategies, team dynamics, and of course put all the training to practise in actual games.
If this sounds like something you are interested in you can BOOK NOW for 2019, alternatively if football is not your thing why not check out our other programmes which range from Surfing to Street Dance and much, much more.
The opening game later today sees World Cup 2018 hosts Russia take on Saudi Arabia in the Luzhniki Stadium Moscow. If, like our unfortunate Italian students, your national side has not made the finals then why adopt one of these other nations to cheer along? (for 4 weeks only!)
