Liverpool FC ties up with language school

11, March, 2015

The Language Gallery (TLG), a provider of quality language courses in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Canada, has joined forces with UK Premier League football club Liverpool FC (LFC) to deliver a series of summer residential courses.

Two types of programme will be available for students aged between 12 and 17: an English language and football residential course and a sports leadership and football programme. While the former will help students develop language skills on and off the pitch, the latter programme will comprise a number of workshops, seminars and interactive lessons to help young players develop essential leadership skills.

Both programmes will consist of 20 academic lessons per week, alongside a minimum of 20 hours of football coaching, by experienced LFC coaches, and incorporate player workshops, skills challenges, tournaments and player feedback sessions.

“We’re really excited to announce the launch of our summer residential programme,” said LFC Ambassador and former LFC player, Ian Rush. “Providing an all-round education for young players, both on and off the pitch, is something that we’re passionate about at LFC and these courses aim to do exactly that.”

He added, “This is a fantastic Liverpool experience for young players and we look forward to hosting many young players from around the world on these programmes this summer.”

Meanwhile, Director of Sports and Corporate Programmes at TLG, Ross Stuart Metherell, said, “We are delighted to be delivering the education and football summer camp programmes in partnership with Liverpool FC who share our passion for developing well-rounded individuals. The courses offer English and non-English speaking children across the globe the opportunity to learn new skills and make new friends from different cultures in a fun and positive environment.”

Weekly residential courses will commence July 5 for a period of six weeks through to August 16.

The London School of Business and Finance rebranded its group of language schools to The Language Gallery in 2013.
