Soccer brings together the students of foreign language clubs

Students in French and German club participated in the fourth annual World Languages’ World Cup the weekend of Oct. 21. Aidan Jones, president of German club, said the foreign language clubs are always looking for activities to get students involved in a new languages or culture. The event, which involved over 30 kids, is a way for the foreign language clubs to interact with each other and just have a good time.

“Because soccer is such a popular international sport and is played in almost every country around the world, it is a good way for the different foreign language clubs to connect,” Jones said.

Jones, who helped organize the event and booked the field off Grant Street, said the event was a huge success and lots of fun. “The soccer match is composed of students divided into two teams that just have fun playing soccer,” Jones said. The French team, composed of students involved in French club, played against a team full of German club students. With a final score of 6-7, the French team won the match.

The foreign language clubs try to put together numerous competitions throughout the year, such as the International Olympics that took place last month and the World Languages’ World Cup, that involve the efforts of students both actively involved in their respective foreign language club and students who are just interested in a particular language.
