A kick-off for language learning: The initiative VISION EDUCATION aims at helping children and adolescents with a migrant background to acquire German language knowledge through a football based app. Through audio-visual elements, children learn football terms and other vocabulary. The app “VISION EDUCATION Football” offers translations from 13 different languages – Arabic, Swahili and Farsi, among others – into German. “There is no other sport which fascinates boy and girls as much as football. Therefore, football offers low-threshold and cross-cultural access to learning a foreign language,” says Manfred Kastner, the founder of VISION EDUCATION. The app was presented within the scope of a panel discussion on the “Role of Sport in Integration”. Vodafone is keen on supporting this project.
