Sports in Spanish


We came to a complicated issue, Sports in Spanish Vocabulary. Especially for many English speakers who tend to think that pronunciation is similar for those words that are written the same. and it is not true. Actually there is no word to be written or pronounced exactly the same.

In the picture you can find some examples that will be quite helpful for your Spanish class, but if you want to learn more, you can continue reading and see the video of the speech that we have prepared below this article.

Sports in Spanish

We need to clarify several things to not cause confusion:

1. The Spanish term for Waterpolo most used is the same as English, "Polo Acuático" is the academic definition for this sport but it is completely out of use.

2. In American English football is called Soccer and Football UK says.

3. Although the words are equal or similar, there is a different pronunciation. For this reason we have prepared a complete video with a lot of vocabulary about sports. Watch it and learn a new lesson. Also find a conversation on the same subject.
