Arsenal! In Chinese!

Posted in Football at 7:43 am by Nicole

Add English Premier League football to the list of sports you have to be fluent in if you want to impress your Chinese friends. Arsenal is launching a Chinese language website. My first experience realizing just how popular the Premiership is in China was while teaching sports journalism at Shantou University in Guangdong province a year and a half ago. The male students in my classes loved the game and knew all of the players, even though the league is half a world away from them. Amazing.

For all you Arsenal novices out there – a few English-language resources for you:

Official site of the Premier League
Arsenal home page
BBC Sport – Football home page
