ESOL Students Bring Wrestling To TyneMet

Two ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) students have been doing a bit of teaching. They've been coaching fellow students in the skills needed for the sport of wrestling.

And this was the real thing - not the showbiz type you see on the telly. The coaching session was led by Gerard Mboungo originally from the Cameroon and Keywan Abdi from Iran. Both of them run coaching sessions in Newcastle as well as attending TyneMet. They were also helped by fellow Iranian, Mostafa Shahmohammadi. In Iran, wrestling is a hugely popular sport and more popular than football.
