To add to a list of successful sports programmes offered in Cork English College, 2019 will see the introduction of English plus Soccer with FC Porto. Porto was established in 1893 and is one of the “Big Three” teams in Portugal holding 76 major trophies. They have famously won the EUFA Champions league on 2 occasions.
CEC performed a trial run of the course in 2018 and following its massive success have decided to add it as a permanent fixture to the list of successful junior sports programmes which already includes: English plus Golf, English plus Rugby with the Munster Rugby team and English plus Horse-riding. The course will be open to students between the ages 12-17 years.
The dates have now been confirmed and the programme will run from June 30th – July 14th 2019. Students will have English tuition in the morning and soccer training in the afternoon. The training sessions will be developed in English and hosted by professional coaches from FC Porto. Furthermore an experience coordinator designated by the club will supervise the summer camp.
The course will be available to all levels of English and students will be placed in classes with students of a similar level of English. Students will have a weekly assessment and will receive an End of Course Diploma on completion of the 2 week programme.
