Are you ready for the football final?

Have you enjoyed the football tournament in Brazil? We can’t believe it’s nearly over, it’s been so exciting, but as we all know “It’s not over until it’s over!”

While you’ve been watching the matches have you shouted, “the referee needs glasses” at the television? Or did you find yourself saying, “If that was on target it would have been a goal”? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to support your favourite team by knowing these expressions in a different language?

Well you can! If you log in now and do the Football Masterclass you can learn all these expressions plus another 8 in time for the final on July 13th, including “there are no easy games in international football” and “At the end of the day, the best team won”!

Everyone can enter

You can take part whether you’re a Free or Premium Member – and once you’ve completed the special unit you’ll be in with a chance of winning a very stylish iPhone 5s PLUS a year’s Premium Membership – with access to all the busuu content on the language app to help you learn languages online.

Here in the busuu office we can’t wait to find out who’s won the iPhone 5s (and 12-month Premium Membership), as well as the other 10 winners of a year’s Premium Membership. The winners will be selected at random from everyone who completes the Football Masterclass and we’ll be announcing who they are on 17th July.

You’ve got to be in it to win it!

If you want to be in with a chance of winning log in to the Football Masterclass now and complete the special unit. Even if you don’t win you’ll have helped your language learning with lots of football expressions to impress your friends – and shout at the television!

You’ve got until 3pm BST on July 13th to take part so that you can use your new language skills during the football final.
