Football is very popular all over the world, not least in Norway. Strangely enough many Norwegians are more interested in English football than in Norwegian. English football is regularly shown on Norwegian television, but with Norwegian commentary. How well would you do if you were to listen to an English speaking commentator?
Those of you who play football games - like FIFA, take care listening to the English commentary. There’s a lot to learn from this. Please, don’t use the Norwegian narration.
