Fantastic mix of nationalities
Excellent facilities (both training and accommodation)
Perfect option if you're looking for linguistic immersion
Accepts goalkeepers but doesn't offer a training program specifically for this position
Although English language tuition forms one of the pillars of this camp, the lessons are not held in a classroom. Instead, British Study Centres (the affiliated language school) have created an integrated English program that is framed within a footballing context. This means that the students can have more fun while improving their linguistic abilities.
The objective of the program is to ensure that the participants learn English from the moment they arrive at the camp until the time that they leave. This is easily achieved thanks to a fantastic team of talented teachers who implement these practical and dynamic teaching techniques.
The children will enjoy 15 hours of football training per week and another 15 hours of interactive English classes. While attending the camp, they are accommodated in the Salford residence. The participants will also be treated to two excursions per week and a multitude of other leisure activities.

Language classes at Soccer camp
English Classes - Standard Program
The language lessons are not held in a classroom in the traditional way. Instead, they are taught within the Manchester City sporting facilities in a practical and interactive way.
This new learning concept is totally focused on motivating the children to improve their English level by exposing them to the language from the moment they arrive to the day that they leave. All activities, training sessions and excursions are held in English ensuring that the children are totally immersed in the language during their stay. This method helps them to learn and improve at a much faster rate.
The English sessions take place between Monday and Friday in the Manchester City facilities, with a morning and evening session making a total of 15 hours per week. During the sessions, participants will cover a different football-related topic each day. For example, on one day they might learn about the importance of nutrition, hydration and rest in the life of a footballer. On another, they could discuss tactics, teamwork and the coexistence of different cultures in sport.
Depending on the topic of the day, the lessons may be held on the field, in the press room, in the changing room or in the conference room.
