This March, express courses for 2018 FIFA World CupTM volunteers will begin in Anapa. Volunteers will learn to talk about football in fluent English, Kristina Mezentseva, coordinator of the city's volunteer training office, told TASS.
"We will hold various trainings and workshops. Future volunteers will study football vocabulary; in addition, they must understand how important the World Cup is and know the history of the tournament. During the English lessons, the groups will work on how to act in various situations that may occur while talking with foreign tourists," Mezentseva said.
She noted that the candidate selection stage had been completed. Introductory lessons are underway, and the main training will take place in March-May. The courses are held at Sochi State University. English teachers and psychologists work with volunteers.
During the World Cup, volunteers will work at the training camps, hotels, airport and railway stations.
