Task 1: I would have Emi Martínez in goal in my all-time Premier League team. I started watching Premiere League from 20/21 season, so He is the best from my sight.

Task 2: I agree with this. We won't be able to live without dream and fellow. If there is just a ball, we can have dream and friends. One ball can make people happy. I think any other activities or movement don't have such a potential.

1. Well , there are lots of brilliant goalkeepers in the Premier League history but if I have to choose only one , I could go for Edwin Van Der Sar in goal in my all-time Premier League team.

2. Football is always a good way to unite people and make them feel safe and loved even if you think about our beautiful community here on this website , football and English unite us from all over the world from different cultures , religions and backgrounds.
But still everyone enjoys being here and feels loved and respected by all the other members and teachers.
So , I definitely agree that football helps refugees to integrate into the new culture.

TASK
1-No doubt.My team goolie Hugo Lloris.
2- Absolutely.It’s one of the way to provide integration. Congratulations to Leeds United F.C..
PHRASES
• I was generally taking the lead in the Supplemental Exams (Repeat Exams) at the school.
• At the beginning of the game managers generally don't prefer a score like two-one because there is always an opportunity for opponent to pull a goal back.
P.S.
• Although there were (16) players plays abroad in our national team. This tournament became nightmare although there was an consolation goal (GF). It was like we were in group of death-:)
• Immigration means living in the an unfair world. It’s a human crisis.If everybody have had good living conditions like democracy,human rights and (education-health service -working) opportunities there wouldn't be this issue.
Nobody wants to leave her/his country. That's like removing a plant from its fertile soil.
Not only language but also culture,religion,tradition and discrimination are main barriers for refugees to integrate a foreign society.
I can't imagine a life permanently lived abroad except education aim or professional task. Where can I find these delicious Turkish meals-:)
