Arsenal football club has launched a new, officially licensed education app called Go and Learn with Arsenal, aiming to help young supporters who are learning English as a foreign language.

GO And Learn with Arsenal is the world’s first app to connect English language learning with official player content. Featuring players from the side’s men’s and women’s team, the interactive content and player-challenge games allow supporters to learn with and about their heroes, as they brush up on their English.

While Arsenal in the Community is providing free educational resources domestically, access to GO And Learn with Arsenal offers the club’s global fanbase support during the coronavirus outbreak, tapping into their love of Arsenal to continue their learning. Supporters who sign up before April 30 will be given a free one-month subscription to help kids continue their learning in lockdown. The app is currently available in French, Spanish and Arabic.

“More than 5,000 individuals a week regularly access our sport, social and education programmes, including our award-winning Arsenal Double Club Languages programme, which combines football and the learning of French, German and Spanish,” says Alan Sefton MBE, head of Arsenal in the Community.

“It is brilliant that during this challenging time our global fanbase will also be able to feel the positive impact of combining a love of Arsenal with learning English through GO And Learn with Arsenal.”

Grounded in educational theory, GO And Learn with Arsenal uses the Accelerated Learning Cycle model developed by renowned educationalist Alistair Smith, director of learning, Mudita Sports, who explains: ‘’Science shows us how to improve the chances of recall through structured practice, spaced rehearsals and short tests. The GO And Learn App is a winner because it starts from an understanding of the process of learning. It links learning, fun and football.”

GO And Learn with Arsenal is free to download on the App Store and will be available on Android soon, with additional languages added over the coming months.
