think u , i fell my level enhance every day especially in listing so very thinks for your staff
 

Hi, everyone..I think football is just a sport and like all sports every people can practice these...even can do it, if it is women or man.. 

hi everybody i m from thailand

In my opinion, women can't fast and skillful in football like man but this is sport and everyone can play. Especially, fair play and playing with high spirit is very good!

Some sentences I was complicated perceived by ears

Women who are playing football in t-shirts and shorts are not attractive like the ones who play tennis or volleyball. Also they are not fast and strong enough to attract men. As a man, I'm feeling very bored while watching them.

Hello there everybody, it's a very interesting web site so as to practice and improve English listening and understanding. I begin to understand what ravi and tess talk about because they speak slowly and carefully for us. To my mind, football is not a sport, it's in first a big business and a lot of money which surrounded each  football players. what a shame !!, is the sport spirit disappearing ?...

Designer? hmmm...I don't have any special designer in my life. But I know one designer of clothes. She is Anne Avantie. She is a multitalent woman. I'm proud of her.

I hope the team of british council donig very well . its my pleasure to say you thank you  for learning english to us, by the way i am trying to write best words but of course you undrestand my sentencec :)
