"Fußballfieber" in America: the German Soccer Adventure 2012

From http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/__pr/K__Wash/2012/06/21-GermanSoccerAdventure2012.html

Hundreds of youngsters in the United States will be taking part in the German Soccer Adventure 2012. Students between the ages of 10 and 18 with an interest in soccer, and not necessarily with any prior knowledge of German, will improve their soccer skills with the help of German soccer coaches at eight summer camps held across the United States, from Ellenville, New York, to Portland, Oregon.

Like the German Summer Soccer Camps which took place as part of the “do Deutsch” campaign in 2011, the program seeks to trigger in young learners an interest in German and Germany by combining language acquisition and promotion of a modern image of Germany with the medium of soccer at summer camps.

Over the course of the summer, as camps take place across the country, watch for updates on the program webpage with stories and impressions from the German coaches, as well as links to their blogs: http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/__pr/K__Wash/2012/06/21-GermanSoccerAdventure2012.html
