You can also have access to extra exclusive content by coming along to our Patreon site. We will continue producing our free weekly podcast (we’ve been going for over ten years) but are offering some extra features for fans of football and learning English.
Main features of the podcast
The weekly Podcast lasts around 10 minutes and includes some of the following features:
- Authentic listening: the podcast is delivered at natural speed and feature real-life stories from the world of football.
- The podcast follows a similar format each week: an introduction, a review of the football week, an explanation of an English football phrase and predictions. All of these sections have language support for learners.
- The show focuses on a particular theme each week – usually something that is in the news at that time, for example, about a famous player or a competition that is taking place.
- As the content is authentic, it may be difficult for lower-level learners. In this case, teachers can adapt the tasks from the transcripts – these can be accessed from our Patreon site here.
