ESL lesson plan - A Question of Sport Quiz

This is a sports quiz ESL lesson based on the tv show A Question of Sport. My students loved it and it the theme was perfect as sports day is just around the corner. Most of the questions are pretty general but a few are aimed at Korean students, so if you teach in a different country you should change them to something that fits sports they like.

To review sports vocabulary. To practise talking about sports
