The biggest differences between Chinese and American education is the importancethat schools attach to sports and art.
American education attaches great importance to sports, so in American colleges anduniversities, students who are good at sports tend to stand out from the groups. Questioners argue that this is an anti-intellectualism tendency in American schools, but in fact, if you know enough about the reasons why they attach importance to the cultivation of sports expertise, you will feel that it may not be so simple.
American universities not only value students' cultural achievement, but also their all-round development. Western education does not advocate excessive elegance and exam-taking, nor does it think that liking sports means poor students,barbarism and waste of time.
Most American parents believe that physical activities actually exercise their children's personality and quality, as well as their ability to cooperate and lead in team activities. At the same time, they also create opportunities for their children to suffer hardships and experience failure through physical activities.
That's why most American children prefer team sports to individual sports.
Mr.Fang, president of Living Word Shanghai, who graduated from Yale University, once said, "When I went to Yale to study, why did I adapt better than others?" I think the expertise in music and sports has become one of my best communication tools.There are no borders and no cultural barriers between them. It's easy for me to make friends in a completely unfamiliar environment.
LWS aims to help students develop their EQ, IQ, abilities and skills in anall-round way, and to train them to become leaders in the future. As the only partner of Real Madrid in Asia, Living Word Shanghai has hosted Real Madrid Youth Football Training Camp for the fifth year.
The Real Madrid Football Foundation in Spain is very cautious in choosing partners because of its mature management and operation mode, its prestigious positionin international football and global business circles, and its enduring brand influence. After long-term comprehensive evaluation and investigation, the Chinese educational circles have chosen LWS Bilingual School as their official partner with the same idea and influence.
The school advocates that it should better show its friendship, fitness and overall development with more people through football activities, and take it as one of the important courses in the daily curriculum. Mr. Fang also said that in our school, talented studentsin football will be of great help to future university applications. Teachers also attach great importance to students' other specialties, such as sports talents, and are more willing to help them apply to their favorite American andother famous schools around the world according to their sports specialties.
By introducing the football training resources of the world's first football club,LWS combines sports with learning and training perfectly, helps students develop Real Madrid values with team work, leadership, respect for others,self-discipline and effort, and provides international professional football training and initiative enlightenment for children.

Real Madrid Football Summer Camp has been held in LWS since 2014. It was held in Shanghai, Chengdu and Beijing in 2015. In 2016, 2017 and 2018, Real Madrid'stop stars Guti and Morientes were invited to kick-off ceremonies and on-site guidance. On the basis of the previous five years, I believe that the activities in 2019 will be more colorful.
Guti once said at the three-way kick-offceremony that: many international stars and coaches joining the Chinese Super League will naturally benefit the league's strength, but the training of localyoung people is the most important. So this time Real Madrid moved the youth training model to China in order to let more Chinese children fall in love with football and experience the model of Real Madrid. With the continuous improvement of the external environment of football in China, more and more football stars, enthusiastic enterprises and football professionals have invested in football.
Now parents worry that their children can't finish their studies. They think that they can't even finish their basic studies. How can they play football? There are also many parents who fear that their children will be injured or becomes avage and do not allow their students to participate in football. Therefore, children often struggle in exam-oriented education, and cannot get comprehensive promotion and development.
Only when children are allowed to do something they like, their potentials andabilities can be fully exploited. LWS Youth Football Summer Camp provides students with a good happy football environment, by employing stars, promoting the concept of happy football to stimulate more parents to eliminate unnecessary worries, so that more children interested in experiencing happy football actively and participate in playing football.
Itis a new environment for children that they can stay with soccer stars and foreign soccer teachers and leave their parents' nagging temporarily. They canhave a new start in a new and happy environment. Through constant contact with advanced football technology, action, to express themselves heartily on the court, so that they can more happily show themselves; through the transfer of skills and tactics to cultivate teamwork spirit, make new friends; in the new accommodation environment, learn to take care of themselves independently.
Foreign coaches have a unique way of teaching. They are open and lively. They encourage enlightenment and enjoy teaching. They help students love learning English andlay a good foundation of interest easily. Breaking through the single classroom and textbooks of Chinese school style, we move English teaching to playgrounds,gymnasiums, libraries or canteens. Students are no longer just learning mechanically,and English is no longer just memorized through repeated recitations. Running,passing, shooting shots and other words are not always learnt immediately, but these lovely words will be remembered in interesting and vivid ways with deep training scenes in the football English environment of summer camp. Therefore,football summer camp based on Happy football will promote children's all-round development in learning.
So we hope hope that more parents and children to participate in the beautiful football summer camp activities.
Living Word Shanghai develops children's good habits and enjoys football and learning through Real Madrid Football Summer Camp. Let LWS Real Madrid Summer Camp 2019 be a turning point for your child's success!
