English Lessons lead to the Olympics

Curling by SwedenWho knows where English classes can lead?

For Sweden’s Margaretha Sigfridsson it has led to the Olympics. Her English teacher at school was passionate about curling and so he organized a one off English class which took place on the ice rink. The students were so enthusiastic that it became a regular weekly lesson for the class.

This has led to Sigfridsson becoming the captain of her country’s national team at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Editor’s Comment

This is a brilliant example of English in action; it was used not as an end in itself but as a way of exploring the world and this has led on to career in something quite unexpected for not only Sigfridsson but countless other students.
