How to Talk About Sports in English – Spoken English Lesson

October 24, 2019

Hi, I’m Niamh. Welcome to Oxford Online English. In this lesson, you can learn to talk about
sports in English. Are you a sport fan? What sports do you like playing? Sport is a common topic in English conversation,
so whether you like sport or not, it’s good to have something to say and be able to to
ask some questions about sport. First question: do you like sport? Think about how you could answer. You could say something like: I’ve always been really sporty. I enjoy some sports, though I’m not a fanatic. I’m not that into sport, to be honest. Do you know what the words sporty and fanatic
mean? Sporty describes someone who’s really interested
in sport, and who often plays sport. A fanatic literally means someone who only
cares about one thing. You can use it with an indirect meaning to
describe someone who’s really interested in something. So if you say, I enjoy some sports, though
I’m not a fanatic, you mean that you like sport, but it’s not the most important thing
for you. Okay, you have three sentences. Which is closest to your opinion? These are good sentences to start talking,
but remember that you should always add more detail if possible! Let’s add some reasons or details to the
three sentences you saw: I’ve always been really sporty. I loved sport when I was a kid, and I still
play most weeks. I enjoy some sports, though I’m not a fanatic. Playing football or something like that can
be fun, but I don’t want to take it too seriously. I’m not that into sport, to be honest. I’m not very athletic and I find watching
sport quite boring. These are already much better. If you can add reasons or details when you
speak, your speaking will sound better, too! Let’s look at some useful words here: Athletic describes someone who’s in good
shape and who enjoys exercise and sport. If you say I’m not very athletic you mean
that you aren’t very good at sport, and probably you don’t really enjoy it, either. Another very useful phrase is I find…, as
in I find watching sport quite boring. This is a very good way to give your opinion
about something. For example: I find watching snooker weirdly fascinating. I find swimming very relaxing. I found volleyball much more difficult to
play than I was expecting. So, what about you? Do you like sport? Pause the video and make at least two sentences. Remember to add reasons and details. Okay? Next, we’re going to look at how to talk
about different kinds of sport in more detail. How many team sports can you name in English? What did you think of? Maybe you thought of team sports like football,
basketball, hockey, volleyball or cricket. Do you play any team sports? Usually with team sports, we use the verb
play. You could say something like: I play football. I like playing basketball. I really enjoy playing cricket. But, of course, these answers are much too
short and lacking in detail! So, think about these questions: where do
you play, how often and who with? By answering these simple questions, you can
make your answer much more detailed and interesting, like this: I play 5-a-side football with some friends
every Sunday. We rent a sports hall and play a 60-minute
match. Or, I like playing basketball. I play for a local team. We train three times a week and have matches
once or twice a week, sometimes in our town, and sometimes in other cities. Do you get the idea? Let’s do one more example, just to make
sure: I really enjoy playing cricket. I joined an online group and we meet in the
park once a week for a game. Different people play every week, which keeps
things interesting! These examples give you some useful language
you can use when you speak. For example: I play for a local team. We play a 60-minute match once a week. I joined an online group. You can change these to make them true for
you, like this: I play for my school team. We play a friendly match a couple of times
a month. I joined a club near my home. So, what about you? Use the language with this section and talk
about team sports you like. If you don’t play team sports now, or if
you don’t like team sports, try to talk about a friend or relative. Pause the video and make your answer. You can also write down your answer if you
want extra practice! How was that? Next, a question: what’s the opposite of
a team sport? There’s the answer: individual sports. Can you name five different individual sports
in English? Maybe you said things like tennis, badminton,
swimming, boxing, running or gymnastics. Of course, some of these can be team sports
as well, like tennis or badminton. With individual sports, you may need to use
different verbs. You play tennis and play badminton, but you
go swimming, go running, do boxing and do gymnastics. A good general rule is: play plus ball sports
go plus an activity ending -ing do plus other activities And yes, you say do boxing even though boxing
ends with -ing. Remember: it’s a general rule! It will work most of the time, but not every
time. So, think about the same questions you answered
in the last section. What sports do you like doing? Where do you do them, how often, and who with? Look at one possible answer: I go running by myself or with my husband. I go once a week or so. I like going running in the park or just around
the streets. What do you think—is this a good answer? It’s not bad, but it’s a bit repetitive
and simple. Every sentence starts with the same word (‘I’),
which sounds unnatural. How could you improve it? Here’s one suggestion: I like going running once a week or so, sometimes
in the park or just around the streets. Sometimes I run with my husband, or sometimes
I just go by myself. What do you think? Does that sound better? Hopefully, it does. This answer uses slightly longer sentences
and more varied language. This sounds more natural, is more interesting
to listen to, and will also help you if you’re taking an English exam such as IELTS. Let’s look at another example: I do boxing at my local gym. I go to classes two or three times a week. I don’t know the other people in the class. What do you think? Could you make this answer better? Again, it’s quite repetitive, because every
sentence is a simple sentence starting with ‘I’. Think about how you could make this answer
more natural-sounding. Pause the video and think about your answer
if you want. Any ideas? Here’s one suggestion: I go to boxing classes at my local gym two
or three times a week. There are several other people who go to the
same classes, although I don’t know them well. Sound better? Again, you can see that using slightly longer
sentences and using varied sentence structures can make your spoken English sound more natural
and interesting. Okay, so now you can talk about different
sports you like, and say a little about them. Next question: why do you like the sports
you like? Why do people do sport? How many different reasons can you think of? Some people do sport to socialize. Others love to compete. For some people, sport is just a way to get
fit and stay healthy. What about you? Why do you do sport? Let’s look at two sample answers: I play 5-a-side football with some friends
every Sunday. For me, the most important thing is the social
side. I don’t really care about the game, or who
wins. I just like having a laugh with some good
friends and getting a beer afterwards. Here’s another: I play basketball for a local team. Personally, I love the competition. There’s no better feeling than winning a
difficult match, or beating a team who beat you last time. I know some people say that sport’s about
taking part, not winning, but that’s not true for me. If you don’t play to win, what’s the point? What do you think? Are these good answers? Hopefully, you can see that these are good! Talking about your personal feelings and opinions
is your chance to really go into detail and use some interesting language. Let’s look at some key words and phrases
from the examples you’ve seen: For me, the most important thing is… I just like… Personally, …
There’s no better feeling than… You can use these phrases to give your opinion
about many different things. For example: For me, the most important thing is just getting
outdoors and being active. I just like the feeling of overcoming a challenge. Personally, I’ve always loved being in the
water. There’s no better feeling than when you’re
tired after a good game. What about you? Can you describe why you do sport, and why
you like the sports you like? Pause the video, and try to make two or three
sentences. Use the language from this section if you
can. Alright, so now you can say quite a lot about
sport. Let’s put everything together. To make a longer answer, you need to: Talk about your general attitude towards sport. Talk about which sports you like. Say where and how often you do sport, and
who you do them with. Talk about why you do sport. Here’s one example: I enjoy some sports, though I’m not a fanatic. Playing football or something like that can
be fun, but I don’t want to take it too seriously. I play 5-a-side football with some friends
every Sunday. We rent a sports hall and play a 60-minute
match. For me, the most important thing is the social
side. I don’t really care about the game, or who
wins. I just like having a laugh with some good
friends and getting a beer afterwards. This example only uses language from the lesson. You can see how you can build an interesting,
detailed answer using simple ideas. Let’s do one more example, using original
language and ideas: I don’t really like sport that much, but
fitness and staying healthy are important to me. That’s why I go swimming and do some weight
training regularly. I mostly just exercise by myself at the sports
centre. Personally, I just do it because I feel I
have to. I don’t really enjoy it, although I don’t
mind it, either. I do like feeling healthy and fit, but exercising
always feels more like work than something fun. Okay, now it’s your turn. Make a longer answer like the two you’ve
just seen. Follow the same structure, and use the language
from the lesson if you can. Don’t forget that you can write your answer
down if you want extra practice. Also, it’s a good idea to practise your
answer several times, until it’s really fluent and comfortable. Then, if you’re really serious, don’t
just make one answer! Make several answers, talking about different
sports. Even better, make an answer from someone else’s
point of view. If you practise like this, your English will
get better very fast! If you want more free English lessons like

    I'm really keen on practising sports, but I'm not a fanatic, because playing sports is fun and I don't want to take it too seriously. Personally, I enjoy jogging in the park twice a week, with my sister, sometimes by myself. I choose the park because there is fresh air and scenic views, but in the hall or sports center, there are not good conditions. I go to jogging to be more healthy and fit and after exercising I feel happy, active and relax. the other reason is that I want to be an athletic in the future, just I need much more exercises.

  • Reply Shilverone May 27, 2018 at 5:54 am

    Football is the favorite sport of mine. I started playing football when I was 10 years old. In fact, controlling the ball to pass most defenders and to shoot a goal into the net of the opposite team makes me so happy. My position in the field, of course, was an attacker. I realized that playing football not only helped me improve health problems, but it also helped me learn in terms of sharing chances for my team-mate. For me, there's no better awesome feeling than winning an opposite team in the presence of a lot of overenthusiastic spectators.

    Sports serve three main purposes first help you to expand your social circle second help to develop sense of competition and thirdly you stay fit and healthy.That is why I like playing cricket , doing martial arts and sometimes going running in the park .But I really love doing yoga exercises because yoga keeps me fit and healthy at all the three levels of existence that is physical, mental and spiritual .It is a way of life which comprises eight rungs from yama to samadhi.I do yoga twice a day before and after sunset. For me the most important thing is to spread the fragrance of health and longevity wherever I go that is why I have made sports indispensable part of my life.

    Well, I really enjoy watching sports, though I'm not a fanatic.
    Playing cricket or something like that can be fun and can keep our body healthy, but I don't really wanna make a career out of it. I used to play cricket with my friends in the school playground when I was a kid, but nowadays work and study consumes most of my time, I really don't get much time to play sports although I believe that it's a great way to socialize and keep our health in order.

    I like sports and i enjoy more practising sports rather than watching them on TV. It is quite boring watching a football match for example from beginning to end. My favourite sport is running. It helps maintain a perfect body shape and also makes you feel more relaxed. I can't consider myself a sporty person, but anyway I try to do sports whenever I have free time.

    Thanks a lot for your help, all the suggestions given are helping me a lot. Here is what I wrote, if you can give me a feedback I would be very grateful.
    I enjoy sports, though I'm not a fanatic. For me, the most important thing is to keep my body in motion so jogging every day in the morning makes me feel recovered and give me the stamina I need to face a long day o work. Even though I find swimming very relaxing too, unfortunately, I don't have much time to do so.

    Please correct for me. Thank you so much!
    I'm not that into sport, to be honest. I'm not very athletic, but fitness and stay healthy are important to me. That's why I go running every morning. I used to do yoga for a month and now I don't have time to do any more. Although I don't really like sport that much, I like some of them such as swimming and basketball. I find swimming very relaxing and I've loved being in water. Playing basket ball is interesting, you'll feel excited when you throw the ball into the basket and score points, that makes me feel like overcomming a challenge. However, I don't have chance to go swimming or play basketball. I also like walking, sometimes I walk along the street with my friend after having dinner. There's no park near my home, so I just go running or walking on the sidewalk. I will try to do exercise more to have a good healthy and good shape.

    I enjoy some sports, though I am no fanatic because playing sports is fun and I don't want to take it too seriously. I like going running twice in a week and so. Mostly we use the park near to my home for running. Sometimes I run with my acquaintances and sometimes alone. I think doing sports is a good exercise. It gives me a full mind relaxation. There is plethora of people doing the same, as a part of their exercise. In my view most people do sports as hobby and for some others sports is their passion. I am not a sports player but I watches football and cricket. My favorite players are Messi in football and Sachin in cricket. Health and fitness are two most important things in my life in order to maintain it I do running. Health and sports go hand in hand they are inseparable so doing sports can prevent the lifestyle diseases too.

He s not a fanatic, of course, but he does a lot of sports. He plays basketball and tennis, goes skiing in winter and skuba diving in summer.

Sometimes, I go to the center with my friend and sometimes I go by myself. There are several people in the course but I don't know them well. The center has some Indian trainers, who are very nice and funny. Therefore, I find it's interesting and inspiringly when I join in the yoga course.

    I strongly feel that doing sport should be in every people s lifestyle. Because of that beneficial like social side, staying healthy and fitness. I am not coach potato and also no sporty but I enjoy it and I do it from my childhood. I found swimming appeals me and it is such a good way for relieves stress. Also I played volleyball for school team couple of time a week and I took part in friendly match with other schools .actually after that I find team sports much more difficult and boring because I hate competing I do sport just for social side and keep in shape and being active so I go on swimming and add more exercise in my routine. Personally, doing weight training charges my batteries and lifts my spirit. There’s no better feeling than when you are tired after a heavy exercise.

    I enjoy some sports like badminton , though I'm not a fanatic. Playing badminton can be fun, but I don't want to take it quite seriously. I play badminton very occasionally with my friends in the outdoors when we have a lot of time to fool around. My friends and myself are not very athletic , so sport is our last resort to while away the time. Though I'm not really into sport, I do like feeling healthy and active. I don't really care about the game, or who wins. I just like having good laugh and fun while playing with friends.

    Hello, teachers. I am so glad after seeing the video, because it taught me a lot of the common used vocabulary. You are all kindness teachers. Hope you can make more videos for people who really wanted to learn good English.🤗The following is my comment to this video.
    Actually, I am not fanatic to do sports, but I will do it also, because the healthy and fitness are important for me. I like running and go swimming, because I can do these sport by myself, I do not like doing sports with others. In the other way, running and swimming also can loss my fat. The sporty center and swimming pool are the places where I always go on Sunday. The reasons of I do sport not just one, keep fit is one of the reason, the important reason is that I can reduce my pressure, to male me feel better!

    I'm not really into sport right now but when I was a kid I love playing football so me and my friend used to play in a small yard nearby to my house so at that time we didn't care about fitness or any other healthy benefit of doing sport we had just interested in competition

    When I was a child I practiced skating every weekend, I only studied at school and had a lot of fun with my friends, sometimes I practiced swimming, on December holidays, when I was traveling with my family. Some weekends I played soccer with my brothers and sisters. Now I don't have much time to exercise, just on weekends, now I only practice bowling, it's a lot of fun.
