O Joel Apanha o Táxi (2019, ANIMATED!)

Joel Takes the Taxi (2019, ANIMATED!)

February 11, 2019

As a gift to us and all Practice Portuguese fans, our friend Wayne Wilson has turned this episode into a fully-animated cartoon. 

With this newly-animated version of one of our early podcast episodes, we flash back to a time when Joel’s Portuguese skills were in their infancy! (Can you hear a difference?)

In this episode, Joel arrives to Lisbon and is faced with a challenging (and frustrating) taxi ride.
