I think Premier League is actually popular because when the season starts some people I know talk about it.

I don't know a lot of things about this topic but I can say that it makes people get along with each other only for football.

In my case, I don't watch football, so I don't prefer anyone.

In my opinion the premier league isn't so popular in Mexico, probably the most popular foreign league in my country is "The league " before called BBVA league from Spain.
I've watched a little the Premier league and I thing the best it has is the intensity and the hard of the match between the players and the fans appreciate it.
And on my daily free time I prefer the domestic league because I know the teams and I don't know always the way to play in England and sometimes this is boering

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?'.
