Event: Evening Bubble football session for More than English Summer School
Contact: Claire Norwood
Claire called up for a chat about two months before the event, which was great of course. But the second thing that was also great....was that she was most impressed by our website over any competitors as it looked and felt "more personal and friendly". Thanks Claire!
Claire was keen to find out more about me, Ed (I run the company-Hi!) to see if I would fit in with their values, and what plans I would have for the children during the session. We agreed to hold the session on the children's second day at the camp for two hours. With the children coming from all over Europe, the bubble football games are a great way to break the ice and make new friends, plus learn a lot about the people they were going to be spending more time with. Hanging upside down in a giant bubble next to someone means you get to know someone pretty quickly! There are also many team games we incorporate where we encourage players to communicate as much as possible. It is this communication with others, and with it being far, far away from a classroom setting which also proves to be some great extra curricular learning for the students learning English.
I arrived for the 7.30-9.30pm session on the Tuesday night in time for Claire to show me around the beautiful school they had hired in Ludlow. It was a lovely location, and there was also time to get to know the staff who Claire had again chosen to match the values of her company. A great bunch.
There was a really positive reaction from the children - I don't claim to speak their home language, they just looked super happy!
