Why combine language learning and sport?
Governments, schools and parents now recognise the benefit of language skills in education when preparing their children for a future in the global job market. Meanwhile, the benefits of sport and physical activity for physical, mental and social development and wellbeing are long-established. Under threat from the increasingly sedentary modern lifestyle, it is more important than ever to encourage physical activity from an early age.
At CMT Learning we passionately believe in the importance of both language learning and sport for youth development. We have found that sport is an effective motivator for language learning, while language learning provides a great platform on which to build sports skills in a team learning environment. Children quickly develop a host of lasting skills inside and outside the classroom, on and off the field. Students are coached in English alongside formal English lessons and are engaged in a programme of fun activities and excursions to top sporting attractions with other students from around the world. They gain confidence, make new friends from different cultures and rapidly improve their English and sports skills.
