Der Ball ist rund

The BBC news site reports that in the face of England's poor (& worsening) record of foreign language learning, the British Embassy in Berlin has published a useful bilingual glossary of football terminology ahead of next summer's World Cup finals.

The full glossary can be downloaded, but the website gives an interesting taster, including a neat explanation of the offside rule. If you want to discuss punched clearances & half-time whistles with your German acquaintances, this is the resource for you :-)
