    In Brazil we call the table football (or soccer) Pebolim or Totó.

  • Flávia says:

    In Brazil foosball has more than one “name”, it depends on the region, but the ones I know are “totó” or “pebolim”, very different from the word football, right?! Haha
    I love listening to podcasts while I’m doing other things, just like you recommended us!
    I discovered your YouTube channel 3 days ago and subscribed right after I watched one video, it’s really fun to learn with TV shows!

  • Danny says:

    Hi, thank you for the good work, I can tell you are so committed to what you do. Just a quick question. Is there any place I can practice the vocabulary from each piece of you podcasts just like I can at Memrise or Anki, which I think is very helpful to memorize new words from Friends and your Immersion program. Your podcasts do have so many useful words and phrases which I don’t want to go over my head. Thank you. Danny

  • Hi guys! Hello from Brasil!

    In Brazilian Portuguese

    Foosball = Totó (in most regions) and Pebolim.

    Peace! ✌️😉

  • Nery says:
