Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that everyone around the planet is watching the football world cup right now. Unfortunately, England have already been knocked out of the competition due to being rubbish! :) However, do you know what to say in English when certain things happen in a football game? There are lots of different things that happen all with their own specific vocabulary. So, here below are the first 3 short films in SGI's video series to show you how to speak English for the World Cup, so that you can sound like a native speaker. Of course, for maximum effect and 100% authenticity, when you produce these phrases, you should jump up and shout them out... as if you were at a football match amongst another 50,000 people.
