Learn Spanish in Spain while playing football with Arsenal F.C.

Our football school courses welcome children of all abilities and it doesn’t matter which team the children support, we just want everyone to have fun whilst learning to play football the Arsenal way!

  • To progress to your full potential as a football player it is vital to have the correct attitude both on and off the football pitch.
  • Always respect your teammates, your opponents, your coach and the referee. If you fail to respect the opponent you underestimate their potential, which can make your own standards fall below your usual level.
  • We believe that skills and technique are essential to inspire creativity, flair, excitement and entertainment. Skills can help make football fun, help you improve as a player and help you beat your opponent.
  • You need to have lots of energy to get the most out of playing football. The longer you can maintain a high level of fitness, the more this will benefit you in games.
  • Embrace your coach’s ideas and always think about different ways you can improve tactically and technically.
  • Football is a team game. The more you work together the better you will become as a player and a succesful team. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, football is a game that can be played by everyone.
  • Never stop learning. Learn how to play the Arsenal way: football based around passing and movement, technique and skill, incorporating the principles of fair play, teamwork, expression and fun!
  • Our summer language courses are organized into 20/25 lessons per week, with 4/5 lessons everyday, Monday through Friday (except at the Marbella Albergue Summer Camp, where students receive 25 lessons per week).
  • The success of all learning efforts depends on a teaching team trained and equipped to motivate their students.
