Listening was great and easy!!

Is very importan to warm up before to practice any sport, that isn't only for football players, to avoid injures and muscles hurts. Cooling down is important too after sports activities.

I don't know about football, but, I suppose there are a lot of football players that now can't play because they are injured.

Tips

Become a better listener

Remember! You don't need to hear every word, to understand everything in the listening.

If there is a word that you can't hear, think about the rest of the sentence and guess what the word is.

You will be surprised how much you can understand, even when you don't hear everything.
