Talking about the World Cup
The Football World Cup kicks off today, and the hype is incredible.
Colombia has a world-class team, and I fancy their chances - what about you?
Whatever happens, whether their underdog or favourite, I'm sure you'll get behind them, and win or lose, let's show good sportsmanship.
In this programme we hear from people with different viewpoints; Neil and Rob discuss the vocabulary they use.
