1.Yes,It is.Alongside Spanish and Italian leagues but from my point of view the premier league is the word's best league because there are more teams fighting for the title unlike Spanish league where you will find Real madrid,Barcelona fighting for the title all the seasons.Well let's add Atletico Madrid but from time to time.
2. One of the best things about the premier league is the atmosphere.You will never find a empty stadium and games are lively by the fans.
3. Both but undoubtedly the premier league is better by far.In my country I'm an Alianza Lima fan,The best and most popular team here in Perú

Of course, the Premier League is really popular here in Spain, above all for the spanish football fans. But we have too a really super important league so in general I prefer my domestic league - R. Madrid and F.C Barcelona are nowadays the most important clubs in Europe-. The Premier League's best thing is the intensity of the game. The players fight for get the ball and this is really exciting for the viewers.

o yeah, it's very popular particularly among-st teenagers. We desperately wait for every weekend's fixtures and specially we just never miss when big boys play against each others.
The best thing is the competitiveness of premier league, any team can surprise any team on their day.
Unfortunately we don't have any domestic league here so we just love to watch premier league, i prefer to watch premier league than Spanish or Italian league.

Premier League is not quite popular in the Philippines because Filipinos are mostly basketball fanatic. As i watch the videos here, i think the best thing about it is football is becoming a way to establish interracial connection. If prefer to watch Premier League, its more exciting i guess...

Yes Premier league is very popular in my country because domestic league doesn´t have quality like for example Premier league. A lot of people from my country are supporters of some club from Premier league. I like full stadiums where is about 40 000 fans always. Fans sing chants all the time and it makes awesome atmosphere. Players from Premier league are from around the world and this makes perfect mix of skills and mentality. I like also very physical, technical and hard football.

There are good teams in our domestic league, but the overall situation is getting worse year in, year out, because it's way too much dependent on solvency of the club owners. Hopefully, we will soon see some improvements.

Do you agree with what the sentences say? Yes of course:
1. If I always write in French, I'll never learn English.
2. If I write too much, I'll make lots of mistakes. Therefore, I can know my weak points and my strong ones.
3. If I do exercises on this website, my English will get better.
4. If I practise on Premier Skills, I'll understand more football English and general English.
5. If I use a monolingual dictionary, I'll learn more words.
6. If I train a lot, I'll get back my silhouette.

Tips

Become a better listener

Sometimes people speak too quickly. If you find listening difficult, remember you can stop the video and listen again. You can also do this when speaking in English.

Remember to say: 

'Sorry, can you say that again?'

or

'Sorry, what did you say?'.
