It is no secret that the three big sports in the United States are football, basketball, and baseball. Of course, there are many others that are really popular in this country. But this time let me just talk to you about basketball, which is one of our cool activities at EC Miami. As an american sport, you can learn a lot of English by playing basketball, by the way. Especially if you guys join us for pickup games at the park. The park we all go to very often is Flamingo, located at 1200 Meridian Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. The basketball ambiance around the courts at Flamingo Park is really awesome. While walking up to them, you can hear those hip hop tunes the players put on the speakers which also match this sport in a very American-urban fashion.
Players going at it-sometimes even with jerseys off- is motivating to get on the court ready for hoop action. You play the pickup game and you lose on a game up to eleven points, and you are out. Once you are out, all you can do is watch the others play, and this is not fun. That’s why you gotta win, no matter what. LOL. What I have to tell you, though, is that with EC English School Miami students it is a different thing. We try our best to get a half court for ourselves. Local players at the park come to see what is going on while we are playing, and they notice that we are just having fun without resorting to that crazy intensity to win. Do you know what I mean? LOL. Also, sometimes locals want to join us and we pick up teams so that everyone gets the chance to play. At the end of the day, everybody had their fun and ready for cold water and a hot recovery shower. Join us!!!
