Socas Canarias basketball side’s American stars have added another dimension to their game: English teaching. The club’s three US players, Levi Rost, Jakim Donaldson and Jason Detrick, are becoming regular participants in a language venture organised with schools in the La Laguna area.
The players are helping to teach English in local schools 28.03.2008
- In the latest initiative, the trio went along to the Luther King School, a short distance from their training facility and hosted a teach-in in English for dozens of teenage pupils. The session included video footage of basketball tactical moves and impressive plays, which the players took turns to describe to their audience. Some of the pupils confessed afterwards that they had difficulty understanding the accents of at least one of the players but enjoyed the chance to practise their English nonetheless.
