The Language League Kick Off Resources offer a unique and creative approach to football and language learning. We have created an inclusive fictional club of animated players developed specifically to inspire and engage young people. Our animated community will appeal to all pupils irrespective of gender, race, age, ethnicity, club affiliation and fandom and playing ability.
Our Routes into Languages Football Club (RiL FC) is comprised of an international community of animated players, our manager, a team mascot and a home stadium. It offers an interactive, attractive and creative approach to language learning linked to the game of football in the context of both on-pitch and off-pitch classroom based pupil engagement and interactions.
