For All Sports Enthusiasts: here is a newcomer to the British Council LearnEnglish suite. It's called LearnEnglish Sport. The main focus right now is on football in the run-up to this year's World Cup in Germany.
Your first stop is at the Poll: who do you think will win the Cup? Cast your vote and see how many people think it will be Italy.
LearnEnglish Sport offers practice in various skills. There's Reading: read all about Football Strips, their history and significance. There's Listening: listen to some football poetry, or to Manchester United fan Stuart describing what it is like to follow his team round Europe.
With Listening, you can download an MP3 file and save it on your computer for listening later; or you can listen to it right now by double-left-clicking on the link.
You can also download the tape script so that you can listen and read.
And try a language activity - be patient as it may take a minute or so to download.
Please try downloading a listening file - and post your comment to say how easy or difficult it was. Indeed, post your comment anyway and tell everyone what you think of LearnEnglish Sport.
