Premier League is very popular In my country, Spain. Also in my currently country when I'm living, EEUU. Every games are on TV during our training sessions for the players. For me the best thing about premier league is how the atmosphere is, I had the opportunity to work there and honestly is amazing how the fans make the atmosphere at the stadiums, also the skills that the players have are very high, how the league is builded, boxing day on December also is very popular and amazing to live. I can't choose one league.I think every leagues have their weaknesses and Strengths. I'm working in MLS and they are growing a lot, but of course premier league is the reference for all the leagues in the world.

Yes, it is. The TV cover is becoming larger all around the country, and we have the opportunity to watch 4 or 5 matches a week.
The best thing for me is the game speed, the pitches quality and the gih level players and managers.
I prefer our domestic league, but the PL is following closer every day.

Correct me please.
1-Of course Premier league is more popular than the domestic league in my country.
2-The best thing is every team will beat each other. I mean the bottom in the league can beat the leader.
3-I definitely prefer Premier league, where which has the best players, coaches, tactics, fans, stadiums.Our domestic league is the worst league in Europe I think.Our clubs, which have no money, spend a lot of money for on stars but they forget one thing;they don't have a plan or tactic.Star players don't save the team by theirself themselves

Really, i don't know... the people likes the football specially to men, but in other countries is more important.

The stadium? i think that, because the people is mix when they are in this place.

i don't mind, for me it's similar.

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?'.
