GAP started “Soccer x English” school in July 2014 as one of language support programs to help children learn English through fun soccer training. 20 schools have been already opened in Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama and Kanagawa. Moreover, GAP developed and produced an English learning drill book and a mobile phone application, both now on sale, and is going to carry on a variety of ‘Sports x Language Learning’ projects.
【Message from Global Athlete Project】
“When I was a child, ten minutes were the maximum that I could concentrate while studying at my desk, but I could go on for many hours with any sport activities. I imagine that the combination of sports which children like and English learning is the best way to make children interested in learning, continue learning and improve their skills. I am sure there are a lot of children out there just like me. ‘Sports x Language’ projects are coming from my experience, and we are trying to offer many kinds of projects along the line.” –Ryusuke Tanaka Founder of GAP
