"Our camps create an environment in which students learn and improve their language skills through involvement in, and enjoyment of either sport, music or dance."
BRAM VAN ASSELT, FOUNDER AND MANAGING DIRECTOR
Exsportise was founded in 1988 by Dutchman, Bram van Asselt. He developed the concept of combining English language learning with sport from his own experiences as a young man arriving in England. At that time he spoke very little English. However, he found that through his love of playing hockey and the social opportunities that that provided, his English improved very rapidly.
As an ex international coach, top level hockey player, and sports development officer, he saw an opportunity to develop something special and unique. He set out to create a specialised English language camp aimed at using sport as a catalyst for English language learning and development. Almost 30 years later, its success speaks for itself.
