Learn English through football

Ball ball ball, footie footie footie! I’m a bit obsessed with the beautiful game, and I’ve taught plenty of students who are too! You may have come across Premier Skills English before, the British Council/Premier League site dedicated to teaching English through football. It’s full of great resources, really well-designed and well worth a visit. Premier Skills would be my first port of call for footie related ELT material, but Languagecaster.com is a new favourite of mine!

Languagecaster was put together by a couple of teachers/football fans with the goal of helping students learn English through something they enjoy. According to the site, these guys have been running the site since 2006 and they’ve done a brilliant job. They upload regular podcasts, provide forums for footie related discussion and offer some great explanations of football vocabulary. There’s an extensive glossary on the site full of expressions, technical terms and clichés – that alone is a great ‘football dictionary’ for learners.
