Posted by Speakeasy News > Tuesday 04 June 2019 > Ready to Use

The eighth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup will be held in France from 7 June to 7 July.  Women's football is becoming higher and higher profile, and with the tournament taking place in France, it's a great opportunity to work on women's sport with your pupils. The worksheet provides activities based on A1+ to A2 levels, depending on the level of speaking you want pupils to produce.

Vocabulary and grammar

  • football related vocabulary (kit, win, tournament, penalty, kick, goal, score…)
  • country names
  • years
  • expressing frequency (how often, once, twice, three times, the...ever).
  • past simple, present perfect (won, has won)
  • the passive (to be recognised, not necessarily used)
