Who 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.
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.
