I hope you had a good week-end.
Today we are going to talk about the good side and the bad side of sport. First, let's study some vocabulary. Please click the link: IE-PhysEd B3 Vocabulary.
Now click here for today's lesson materials.
Now let's listen to Two Sides of a Sport.
One of the worst examples of the bad side of sport is hooliganism. In the most extreme cases, people are killed.
Sometimes just attending sporting matches can be deadly (致死の). In March 2002 a little girl was killed at a hockey game in Columbus, Ohio, USA. She was hit in the head by a hockey puck. One of the most tragic incidents to occur at a sporting match was the Hillsborough Disaster in England. Ninety-six people were killed. The photo above shows a memorial to the people who died in the Hillsborough Disaster.
Can you think of any bad things that have happened at a sporting event in Japan. Please post a comment below.
See you next week!
