Football is a natural narrative that students can easily follow. There is a beginning, a middle and an end to the story (the season) that is full of twists and turns along the way. There are larger-than-life characters, heroes and villains, as well as lots of tension, drama, violence, sadness and joy! Check out some of the main features of our football-language learning site below.
