Football Internationals take the stage as UEFA Champions Teachers!

Looking for online learning resources to educate and entertain children aged six to 12? Try UEFA’s e-dictation lessons read in different languages by European players and coaches.

All over the world, parents and teachers have been juggling home schooling with home working. Children have taken to e-learning, with no chance to kick a ball with friends in the playground. To give everyone a break from teaching and studying in isolation, the UEFA Foundation for Children invited some of European football’s top players and coaches to become a Champions Teacher.

This latest edition of the Champions Teachers programme offers exercises in Portuguese, Russian and Slovakian, with international stars past and present lending their time to keep everyone entertained.

For this exercise, Children simply need to grab a pen and paper, pick a video, then write (or type) as the Champions Teacher reads a short excerpt from their favourite children’s book or poem. To check results, download the PDF of the text.
