Major sporting events like the European Football Championship are an occasion to meet new people from all around our continent (and sometimes the world, for expats). Sport is capable of gathering people and creating connections between them.

To help you get the most out of this event, we prepared a short Survival Guide Phrasebook including common phrases to comment on the matches and have conversations with people speaking in different languages.



Whether you are going to France to attend the Euro 2016 or you’ll be watching the matches from your country, chances are that you’ll need to talk about the event with tourists, your foreign friends, your language partners or the people you’ll meet.

Learn some football slang in several languages, establish a connection, communicate and have fun. And good luck for your favourite national team!
