The Language League: Kick Off is a creative and unique initiative for young people to develop and enhance their language skills in French, German, Arabic or Spanish.  It offers an attractive and creative approach to language learning linked to the game of football.

The Language League: Kick Off teaching resources will help teachers deliver inspirational language lessons using our fun, interactive and engaging football themed resources.  Our Routes into Languages club (RiL FC) is comprised of an international community of animated players (male and female), manager, team mascot and home stadium.  The materials comprise a fully integrated package of teacher's notes, pupils' workbooks, PowerPoint presentations and additional printed material such as flashcards.  There is a small charge of £5 per pupil's workbook to cover the printing costs.

Samples from the French, German , Arabic and Spanish workbooks are available as downloads below.
