Soccer in Spanish

This free audio lesson is all about soccer in Spanish (or football to most of the world outside the USA). Discover how to say that you like playing soccer in Spanish among other useful phrases!

Soccer is like a religion in many Spanish speaking countries. In fact sometimes it may seem that football is the only sport they practice such is the attention given to it in the Spanish speaking media and topics of conversation. Given the importance it plays, you better have some of the soccer words and terms up your sleeve ready so that you too can engage in some impassioned discussions of whether the striker was or was not offside or whether the opposition player got away with an obvious hand ball or not.

Learn these words and the locals will soon welcome you to their football loving fold.
