Football and Sports
We work with sports clubs of national and international renown, including Tennis, Football and Rugby.
Language Help for the Football and Sports World
English tends to be the lingua franca for communication among players, their coaches and managers in high ranking sports clubs where many different languages are commonly represented these days.
Not everyone who comes here to work in sport has the necessary English skills – which is where we come in.
We offer many ways to help players and their families to settle in; to assist coaches and coaching teams to work in a common language and to interpret and translate for them when dealing with the media, lawyers and agents and sporting events internationally.
- A Premiership manager wanted to use one language throughout the club, to generate team spirit. We provided lessons to all who needed it.
- Spanish football manager Gonzalo Arconada was recently in the UK studying English with la Academia. He spent 6 weeks with la Academia doing intensive English classes.
- We coach sportspeople through the Home Office exams to enable them to stay working in the UK.
- We provide GSCE and A Level tuition in English, Maths and Science for younger players, apprentices and players’ children.
