Double Club: German is a programme of the Arsenal football club in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut London to combine language lessons with football to encourage pupils to learn a language and continue with it until the end of school.
It aims to fuse football and education together to form a fun and enjoyable way for young people to engage with their academic studies and football at the same time.
The resources include interactive video activities with the German footballer and Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry. He invites your pupils to answer questions in German and gives them coaching commands they have to follow. This provides a fun way of introducing new vocabulary or to perform an energetic warm-up session in the classroom.
Two sample videos are publicly available. The full set of videos is available to all teachers participating in Double Club: German.
