our learning principles

The City Football Language School promotes the principle of ‘learning by doing’.

During the course players will:

  • engage in authentic communication activities which have a real-world relevance
  • use authentic language in a natural context
  • work collaboratively and reflectively to reach their individual potential
  • be inspired to learn through fun and motivating tasks


Delivered by qualified teachers with a passion for football, English language sessions draw on interactive technology to make learning an enjoyable and memorable experience.

Players will improve communication skills while undertaking a dedicated journey through the world of football, discovering life as a player, a manager, an analyst and a journalist. Each morning they will learn about key elements of the profession, and each afternoon they will put these skills into practice in real-world activities, such as:

  • Press conference and media interviews
  • Football analysis
  • Football commentating
  • Writing news stories


Delivered by City Football Schools coaches who are experienced in Manchester City’s philosophy and methodology, football training sessions will provide a true insight into how Manchester City players train on a daily basis. Continually reinforcing and integrating communication skills learnt in English language sessions, football coaching will focus on key areas such as:

  • Development of individual technique and skills
  • Challenging 1v1 practices
  • Team play and working together
  • Improved understanding of how City perform through playing games


Here are examples of the types of activities you will be doing on the 2-week programme. Please note, timings and topics are subject to change.
