All over the world, parents and teachers have been juggling home schooling with home working. Children have taken to e-learning, with no chance to kick a ball with friends in the playground.

To give everyone a break and provide some entertainment, the UEFA Foundation for Children invited some of European football's top players and coaches to become a Champions Teacher.

This latest edition of the Champions Teachers programme offers exercises in French, German, Russian and Spanish, with international stars past and present lending their time to help kids learn.

For this exercise, children simply need to grab a pen and paper, pick a video, then write (or type) as the Champions Teacher reads a short excerpt from their favourite children's book or poem. To check results, download the PDF of the respective text.

The link at the bottom of the page is a steer to more lessons and languages, so why not take a look and see which other stars are turning Champions Teachers?
