Learn English Through Football Podcast – 2019 Women’s World Cup: On this week’s football-language podcast we look back at some of the main football news and language from the week and of course we’ll discuss the 2019 Women’s World Cup that is currently taking place in France. We’ll look at the format of the tournament, discuss who are the favourites, the dark horses and minnows, while we will also look at some of the players to watch out for over the next four weeks. We also report on our World Cup predictions competition and ask another football-language question.

2019 Women’s World Cup – Introduction
DF: You are listening to languagecaster.com’s football-language podcast. Welcome everyone to the Learn English Through Football podcast for all those who love the beautiful game of football and who wish to improve their English language skills. My name’s Damian and I’m in London where the weather today has been rather mixed – strange weather indeed for June. Now as we know, all of the European seasons have finished but there is still a lot of football being played around the world.
There are qualifiers currently being played for next summer’s European Championships, while the 2019 Copa America starts next week; with the African Cup of Nations beginning the week after that. But the big football action currently taking place is the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France and we’ll be heavily featuring that tournament in today’s podcast.
