S1E24 – Quick Dictations – Football

Episode Notes

A new weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.

How to use:

  1. Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
  2. Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
  3. Check your text with the text of the dictation. If any word is different, it is probably a listening comprehension mistake. Try to listen again to the word and repeat the pronunciation a few times. If you don’t understand the word when you read it; it is probably new vocabulary.
  4. Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.


I love football! I go and watch my local team every week. I love shouting at the players! I shout good things when we are winning. I shout bad things when we are losing. I usually shout bad things! I used to shout at the referee in the past. However, one day, that changed. I was shouting at the referee. I told him that his glasses were too small. He suddenly stopped. He then came over angrily. He said he had an eye condition. He then told me to be the referee and he walked off. I accepted the challenge and refereed the match. It was a disaster! That was the last time I shouted at a referee.
