People play lots of team sports in the USA and Canada.

Baseball Baseball is one of the USA’s national sports. Elementary school and high school children play in the youth* leagues. Boys and girls between the ages of four and eighteen from all round the world can compete in Little league baseball.
American football Can you stop me?
American football evolved* from rugby and is the most popular sport in the USA today. The Super Bowl championship* is one of the most watched sports events in the world. Players always wear a protective helmet* with a face mask and shoulder* padding. In some games, they also wear thigh* pads, knee* pads and chest* protectors.
Ice hockey is played in teams of six players: five skaters and a goalie*. It is fast and exciting. It can be dangerous too, so* skaters have to wear protection: a helmet*, shoulder pads, elbow* pads, shin* pads, a mouth* guard and padded* shorts. The goalie’s equipment is a bit different. Ice hockey players also wear skates specially designed for the game. I love English Junior · No. 79 · September-October 2013
Basketball Today basketball is one of the world’s most popular sports. James Naismith, a Canadian American, invented the game in 1891 when he was teaching a gym class on a rainy day. Basketball is a good sport because you can play it in a gym or in the street.

The British* discovered* tea in the 17th century*, like* other Europeans. The tea plant, originally, came from China and with it, they made* a stimulating drink. The British* loved it! The British* decided to grow* it in India, one of their largest colonies. Tea was a drink for the upper* classes in Europe but it became* very popular in every class in Britain. I like milk in my tea!
The British* drink tea with cold milk and sometimes with sugar too. Some British* people drink six or more cups* of tea per day. Employers normally give their workers* tea breaks*. If you are upset* or unhappy, a British* person always offers you a cup of tea! Enjoy your tea!

Hamburgers were first* called* “Hamburg steaks*” because they came from the German city of the same* name. It was minced* beef* with spices*… but without* bread!
