The countdown is on!

Learning Through Football expands

As one of the 12 host cities, Glasgow is set to take centre stage in the most multilingual European Championship to date.

As part of the competition’s legacy, school pupils in Scotland will have the opportunity to explore cultures across Europe through the expansion of our Learning Through Football platform.

To celebrate Languages Week Scotland (1 - 5 February 2021), we’re delighted to release a special set of language and culture based resources which have been built into the expanding teaching tool.

In addition to more than 40 project ideas linked to the Curriculum for Excellence, teachers and parents can now access free language and culture based activities which have been designed to broaden the horizons of young people and develop an understanding of the diverse cultures which exist across Europe.

From learning key phrases to researching local landmarks and currencies, the new resources are available to teachers and parents who are already reaping the rewards of engaging children through football related activities, and capitalising on Scotland’s qualification for the tournament.

The modern languages resource is fully linked to the Curriculum for Excellence and can be downloaded as a handy poster. 

We encourage teachers, parents and guardians to take advantage of the new language resources and share their work on social media using #LearningThroughFootball, #EURO2020 and tagging @GlasgowEURO2020.
