El Clásico We have been publishing football language posts on languagecaster since 2006 and in that time we have featured Real Madrid versus Barcelona on numerous occasions so in this post we bring together some of these posts which can act as a resource for learners and teachers of English. There are links to worksheets, listening files with transcripts, quizzes, as well as explanations of different kinds of language and cliches. Don’t forget we have hundreds more explanations of football language in our football glossary and we also have a page full of football cliches.
