It is World Cup fever time! Use the built in motivation that comes with it - to teach your students English!  

Here are many resources you can use. 

See our World Cup flashcards (printable) on Quizlet. Also others in our group about soccer. Read the review of all teams and present in class.

Lots of resources available. See FIFA's website but also Larry Ferlazzo's list of best websites with World Cup resources.    This site offers a quality list of resources too.

I'll be posting resources here too! See this nifty Project World Cup. Students work in groups to collect info about the country , their team and history. then present to the class. Get a great schedule for the World Cup HERE.

Here is a nice ppt (attached) of all the countries in the forthcoming world cup. Test your student's knowledge!  Also, this presentation is a nice interactive summary of all the rules.

You might also try the even bigger Flags of the World presentation.
See these resources to teach about the country of Russia. 

Find more videos like this on EFL CLASSROOM 2.0
With the soccer field, you might play Whiteboard Soccer.  It really inspires them during the heightened time of World Cup.  This is a kind of online version.

What do you have to share and "teach" using this great event?

I'd like to include this powerpoint which is a FULL history of the World Cup since 1930. Lots of info. that could be useful.....
Hey, I appreciate the corrections. I talked to an Australian last night and realized that they say soccer there and thought "ooops!" Thanks for the Mexico correction, too. "Four countries - Mexico, Italy, France and Germany - have hosted it twice"
I have a general question for all you English speakers out there. Does anyone outside of the UK and Ireland say "football" when referring to what Americans, Australians, and New Zealanders call "soccer" ? Thanks!~
A World Class, World Cup BAAM game from member "Dodgy Al".

BAAM is a great game and this one takes the cake!
all spanish speaking nations "futbol"
Even the Irish refer to football as soccer. When they say football they are referring to gaelic football.

Here is a fantastic presentation for the 2018 world cup.  turn off the text and audio and present to students. Can they name the teams?   They can also try the quizlet set of all teams we created.
