Patrik Zanela, moje iskustvo u Manchester City fudbalskoj akademiji

Patrick at Man City Etihad stadium, VerbalistsJezičkoj mreži Verbalisti sve veći broj polaznika iz celog sveta poklanja poverenje – kako za jezičku edukaciju u inostranstvu, tako i za sportsko-jezičke kampove. S tim u vezi danas donosimo utiske našeg polaznika Patrika Zanele (Patrick Zanella) iz Italije koji je preko Verbalista pohađao čuvenu Manchester City akademiju dva puta.

Patrik ima 18 godina i živi u Trentinu. Prošlog leta boravio je dve nedelje u školi fudbala Manchester City a ovog proleća jednu nedelju. Bio je u seniorskoj grupi koja obuhvata uzrast od 12 do 17 godina. Detalje programa u Mančesteru pogledajte ovde ili na linku:

MANCHESTER CITY Academy – škola fudbala i jezika (9-17 god)

U nastavku prenosimo Patrikovo pismo i njegove utiske u originalu na engleskom jeziku, dok slobodan prevod možete naći odmah ispod.

As soon as I heard about MAN City School through Verbalists I was immediately interested. I was looking forward to having a different kind of experience; it was my last chance to have a try at it because the camp was for 9-17 year old students and I was about to turn 18. It was either now or never 🙂

After my two camp experiences I am able to say that the football was fantastic, there were many well-qualified coaches and they were very good in what they do. They knew us by name and really motivated us every day. Our football practices were great and we trained at the famous Man City Etihad campus where there were many different football courts. We were split in two groups – juniors and seniors. In my group and team were players from all over the world and I made many friends in the two weeks. It was very easy to make friends there, everyone loves football. 🙂

Food was good although it would have been even better if there was more variety. I loved the activities which we did on the weekends. Even though we practiced at the Etihad campus, for me the best activity was when we visited the famous stadium. And the English class in the media centre was also very interesting, there we practised how to give interviews and make presentations to the press 🙂

I would recommend the Man City football school to everyone and especially to the one who LOVE football!

PREVOD:
Čim sam čuo za Mančester City školu fudbala preko Verbalista odmah sam bio zainteresovan. Jedva sam čekao da doživim to jedinstveno iskustvo; ove godine sam uhvatio poslednji voz jer je to program za uzrast od 9-17 godina, a ja sam bio na korak od punoletstva. Bilo je ili sad ili nikad 🙂

Nakon što sam pohađao kamp dva puta mogu da kažem da je fudbal fantastičan. Škola ima mnogo visoko kvalifikovanih trenera i oni obavljaju svoj posao veoma dobro. Znali su nas poimence i svakoga dana su nas motivisali da budemo što bolji. Treninzi su bili fantastični i odvijali su se na čuvenom Etihad kampusu koji ima mnoštvo različitih fudbalskih terena. Bili smo podeljeni u dve grupe, na juniore i seniore. U mojoj grupi bili su igrači iz celog sveta i stekao sam dosta prijatelja tokom dve nedelje. Budući da svi vole fudbal bilo je veoma lako sprijateljiti se. 🙂

Hrana je dobra, mada je mogla biti još bolja da je malo raznovrsnija. Posebno su mi se sviđale aktivnosti koje smo imali vikendom. Iako smo trenirali u okviru samog Etihad kampusa, meni je bilo najbolje kada smo posetili čuveni stadion. Časovi engleskog u media centru takođe su bili veoma zanimljivi. Vežbali smo kako da dajemo intervjue i prezentacije medijima. 🙂

Preporučio bih školu fudbala Manchester City svima, posebno onima koji VOLE FUDBAL!
