Football Language Podcast: 2017-18 Premier League Kick Off! - Podcast – Languagecaster.com
7 days ago
Leagues across Europe kick off and this week’s podcast previews the start of the Premier League in England. This is our 11th year podcasting and we’re pretty sure we are the oldest football podcast out there (with the same hosts!). In the past week, we’ve found out the winners of the Women’s Euro 2017 competition and the Community Shield in England, and on the show, those news items are sure to be discussed. We’ll also be explaining some football words and phrases as usual – the phrase hand in a transfer request and another phrase connected with transfers, to down tools. And of course we’ll have predictions and a tricky quiz question. There is also a transcript for those who wish to practise their reading and listening skills (Damian = DF, Damon = DB).
