World Cup

Something for everybody: follow the World Cup on the BBC Sport website.

While you are in the site, have a look at these:

Live: see a text commentary on a match happening right now, and you may also be able to listen to the commentary.

Extras: The World Cup Blog. Written by BBC reporters in Germany.

Try opening 'Audio and Video' - top right-hand of page. I could not get it to work from my office computer, but you may have better luck. It is very good for listening and viewing practice.

Don't forget, pleeeaaase, to leave your comment on this Blog!

And would you like to edit the Sports Section on the MetroZine? Just e-mail me.

More soon!

Although the instructions are in Arabic, you do not need to know Arabic in order to do this exercise.

Levels 3 +

Football is part of the British culture. As a result, many footballing expressions are commonly used in situations which have nothing to do with the game.

As always, leave a comment after trying 'Go4English. It is very important to let others know whether the site helped you with your English.

Good luck and more very soon!
