Sports : A Matching Exercise for Chinese Learners

People talk about sports all the time: during a game or match, while watching sports on TV or online, while participating in sports activities themselves, or in social settings with other sports enthusiasts. So, we thought it would be useful for you to learn some sports-related vocabulary too. Below you will find the first exercise of this sports vocabulary training (the next ones are coming in a few weeks). We hope it will help you communicate with your Chinese-speaking friends.
