Pronunciation

Sometimes new players who sign for FC Barcelona cannot speak Spanish so they have to begin learning a new language from the first day! We encourage all players to attend Spanish lessons when they arrive because the most important point for players and coaches is communication and making sure that the players and coaches can talk and understand each other. So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to sign for FC Barcelona, you should start by learning Spanish just like the new players! Good Luck!

Player names

Now we have introduced ourselves, it’s time to introduce our team! Do you know who our manager is? What is his name? (What is he called?) ¿Cómo se llama? His name is Ernesto Valverde. Se llama Ernesto Valverde. Do you know the name of our captain? What is his name? ¿Cómo se llama? His name is Andrés Iniesta. Se llama Andrés Iniesta.

Firstly read the names of each player to learn all of their names. When you think you have remembered all of the players, cover the player’s name with your hand. Next, ask yourself the names of the players. Don’t forget to use this pattern. “What’s his name?”: “¿Cómo se llama?”, “His name is…..”, “Se llama <..name..>” Now check how many players you can remember!

Player numbers

The second most important point to remember about each player is their shirt number. If you could choose your own shirt number at FC Barcelona, what would you choose? What position would you play?

8


All you have to do here is remember the number of each player in English. You will need to use this information soon so don’t forget! Do the same as you did on the previous pages. Read the names of each player first then look at their number. When you think you have memorised all of the players’ numbers, cover the player’s name with your hand and try and say their number in English! Can you remember them all?! We will learn the numbers in Spanish soon so don’t forget them!

Writing practice

Look at the pictures of the players on the left. Write the player names in the space provided on the right. Trace the question and answer for the first pattern and then see if you can do it yourself. Some of the vowels have been missed out too! If you can’t remember the players’ names, check again on P6 and P7.

¿Cómo se llama? Se llama Gerard Piqué ¿Cómo se llama? Se llama ¿Cómo se llama? S_ ll_m_

Player numbers

Hi, Ana. Do you know the names and numbers of all of the players now? Mmmm, I’m not sure Pablo. Can you help me? Ok, one of our defenders’ name is Rakitic. What is Rakitic’s number? ¿Cuál es el número de Rakitic?

His number is four. Su número es el cuatro or Rakitic’s number is four, El número de Rakitic es el cuatro.

Firstly, can you say all of the numbers up to 40? Look at the number chart and read them out loud. Ok, have you done that? Now see if you can guess all of the player numbers correctly by drawing a line from the player to the numbers. How many can you get correct? Remember the pattern: “What is Rakitic’s number?”, “¿Cuál es el número de Rakitic?” “His number is four.”, “Su número es el cuatro.” or “Rakitic’s number is four.” “El número de Rakitic es el cuatro.” If you don’t know the player or their number, go back and check their pictures on pages 6/7 and 8/9!

Positions Now we know the names of the players and their numbers, it’s time to learn the positions they play. Firstly, let’s learn a little about how we talk about ourselves and other people. When we ask a question directly to another person, we use ‘tu’ for ‘your’ - What is your position? ¿Cuál es tu posición?

When we want to answer about ourselves, we use ‘soy’ for ‘I am’ - I am a forward, Soy delantero.

When we want to answer something about somebody else, we use ‘es’ for ‘he / she is’ - He is a defender, Es defensa.

When we ask a question about another person, we use ‘su’ for ‘his / her’ - What is his position? ¿Cuál es su posición?

Now look at the pitch below. Each player is shown on the pitch in the position that they play. Don’t forget that each position can be shortened! Goalkeeper = GK, Defender = DF, Midfield = MF, Forward = FW
