About Football English

On Premier Skills English, you can find lots of resources for learning English and they are all about football. 

Some of the materials will teach you football English. This is language about the beautiful game, connected to playing or watching football. These materials will teach you the words and phrases you need to talk about football on and off the pitch. 

The rest of the materials will teach general English through football. The materials will cover the same sort of language you would find in any language course, but the subject of the lessons will be football or related to football.

If you have any questions about football English or English through football, please feel free to contact us.
