Futbol Lingo

On Thursday 27th June, four Bloxwich Academy pupils enjoyed a football-related language learning enrichment activity with a company called Futbol Lingo at Barr Beacon School.

Pupils involved were;

L Horton-Stokes – 8T2

T Taylor – 8S1

A Rose – 8S2

M Waddison – 8W1

They were an absolute credit to themselves and the Academy!

Futbol Lingo is an initiative from professional football coaches and linguists, Pierce Kiembi and Mark Muddyman. We have been working with them to see how we can inspire language learning through the medium of football.

Futbol Lingo offers a pioneering app designed by UEFA Licenced coaches at Sports Lingo Group Ltd. to help other coaches, footballers and football lovers alike learn football-specific language and facilitate communication by breaking down the language barrier. 

It helps to promote MFL and highlight its importance in the football industry with motivational talks and workshops.

The education offer from Futbol Lingo is very exciting – combining football themed activities with motivation and inspiration for language learning and the practical opportunities that exist for future careers.

Pierce and Mark are inspirational football coaches and linguists. They aim to inspire future linguists and open young people’s minds about the wealth of opportunities for people who speak other languages and also understand other cultures in the football industry.

Pierce has a wealth of experience in the football industry as both a professional player and a coach and worked yesterday with Year 8 pupils from across the trust. There was a motivational talk on the value of languages followed by a practical football session conducted in French! 

For more information on how Pierce helps football players and coaches overcome language barriers across the world, please download the app:

The app will show you how to understand football-related language and give you an insight into the importance of languages in the sporting world!
