Welcome to the last unit in module 2!

Unit 6 starts with a Getting Ready section. These are some pictures of different sports to
think about. This will help you to focus on the new vocabulary to get extra information about
each sport if the topic interests you.

I am a sports fan and I enjoy watching the Olympics at least an hour every day. In
fact, I watched the last summer Olympic Games in London and enjoy it a lot. I also
enjoyed the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia; they were amazing.
