The round of 16 of the football tournament it’s almost over. Are you one of the lucky ones who’s still in Brazil watching it? Or are you at home, like us, watching it round the TV with friends? Or maybe you’re watching the games at the pub with other footie fans?
How’s your team doing?
It’s your team still in the game? At busuu we’ve all been enjoying the football games and cheered up for our teams, even though some didn’t make it through. In the end, only one team can win. How about you? Have you found yourself shouting, “The referee needs glasses”, at the television yet? Or, as they say in Spain, ¡El árbitro necesita gafas!
Impress your friends
Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to impress your friends by knowing how to say, “He certainly knows where the goal is”, in Portuguese – “Ele certamente sabe onde fica o gol” – when Brazil scores a brilliant goal? Or when someone misses, how about exclaiming, “Gdyby ten strzał był skierowany na bramkę, to mielibyśmy gola” – that’s, “If that was on target it would have been a goal”, in Polish.
