Match the Sports
The Premier League players talked about lots of different sports that they do and watch in their free time. In this first activity, you have to match the names of the sports with the pictures. Do you do any of these sports in your free time?
When we speak about sport in English, we sometimes use do, e.g. 'do karate', sometimes go, e.g. 'go bowling', and sometimes play, e.g. 'play football'. In this activity, match the sports with the correct verb: do, go or play.
