The most popular activity at EC Bristol is by far Football.
Angolans, Arabics, Colombians, Brazilians, Itallians, Swiss meet up every Fridays to go to the sport centre and compete between each other. We will soon see them at the Premier league ;D
Recently, the Director of Studies Dan, the teacher Louis and the Angolan students went to play football for a fundraising event. They played 7 games! It was a very long, intense but fun & sunny day!
The fundraising event was called COPA SANDINO and was organised by the association BLINC. Bristol Link (BLINC) with Nicaragua was set up in 1985 in order to promote solidarity with Nicaragua and to develop a link between Bristol and Puerto Morazán. BLINC aims to strengthen the ties between Bristol and Puerto Morazán, to offer solidarity to our Nicaraguan friends, and to enable our community to benefit from cultural, educational and commercial exchange.
But the football adventure is not finished yet for our wonderful students. They will be playing at Clifton College Sport Ground on Sunday 1st June as a charity event. The charity is called Hammer Brain Tumours Out.
The matches will start at 10:00 am. So go and support them all on Sunday! They are counting on you!
Our Angolan students are enrolled on an Academic language course. For more information about that course, go on that link: http://www.ecenglish.com/school-locations/learn-english-in-bristol/english-courses/academic-year-programme
