Sports in Italian
Let’s get warmed up and ready to talk about sports in Italian!
Everyone has their favorite sport and most countries tend to have favorite national sports. America is the home of baseball for example. And, like most of the world, Italians are particularly fond of soccer, or calcio. You’ll find kids in the street playing calcio as well as lots of organized teams. There are an endless number of sports to talk about but in this lesson, we’ll go over the most common ones.
On your mark, get set, go!
