Young people in Sudan are running crazy about the Premier League, we have lots of English football fans even Leicester City got some supporters after their merecle.
The thing I like best about the Premier League is that the strong competition of the title and that results in lots of injury time winners which you can only see in the Premier League, i still remember that QPR-City crazy match.
to be honest i prefer the Premier league to ours,

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.

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?'.
