Elementary School and Kindergarten Pionierska 2, Brezno points out with the project "Let us use a foreign language actively" to the practical needs of language learning in athletes and to the continuous improvement of the learning process of foreign languages (English, German and Russian) innovative features of teaching. This primary School provides education for more than 800 pupils. It has a long tradition of foreign language teaching and sports training in sports classes focused on hockey and athletics.From the third year, students have the opportunity to attend classes with the increased subsidy of a foreign language. In the fifth gradecan talented pupils develop their gift in the sport class focused on ice hockey and athletics. In addition to hockey players and athletes school has many students - skiers, football players, hockey players, athletes, swimmers and biathletes who represent Brezno respectively Slovakia often at international competitions. The school creates favorable conditions for athletes and collaborates with sports clubs (HK Brezno, FK and LK ZP Sport Podbrezova, PK Fliper, AK Mostáreň Brezno).Long-term experience of teachers who teach athletes show a low interest in the study, also the study foreign languages. Based on personal experience of the previous project Erasmus+ in 2015, we can confirm that to achieve positive change in sportsman's attitudes and in the level of foreign language skills, it is necessary to make changes in the methods of teaching and the competences of teachers who teach these students. Examples include two lecturers that participated in last year's mobility project and integrating innovation acquired abroad into their teaching. This positive response was the impulse that inspired us to expand the base of teachers of other foreign languages ​​(German, Russian) and other subjects (mathematics, computer science, music, physical education, sports training and all subjects primary education) in the sport classes. We have involved all those teachers to project Erasmus+ in 2016. The project group consists of teachers who are interested in improving their skills and courage to break stereotyp teaching a foreign language and use it in many other subjects and sport training - "use a foreign language actively" and thus improve the overall quality of teaching foreign languages ​​at the school.
