Did you watch the Euros 2020? Are you a football fan? What did you think about the backlash against the losing finalists, England, and in particular the 3 players who missed the crucial penalties?
In this podcast Sue caught up with Dave, a West Ham supporter, who gives his opinion about the football and the harsh criticism that the players received, and also Victoria who runs an equality blog on Instagram, Feminists of Reading.
As a langage learner tune your ear to Dave’s London accent. Also listen out for these expressions that he uses:
Name and Shame
The fans are thick (Sue replies that he has probably “put his finger on it”)
One of the people in the background says “I couldn’t agree more”. What does this mean? Does the person agree or disagree?
- If there are other expressions or language points that you need help with, please post your questions in the Comments section and we’ll answer you with a full explanation.
This is a podcast for language learners and although the english-podcast team support anti-racism, the views of Dave and Victoria are entirely their own.
The podcast was recorded by Zoom so the sound is unstable at times.
