    What happened to the “f” in “eles ficam muito bem”?

      what a fun question! I had to go back and listen a bunch of times to see what you might have heard. I actually did here the “f” in ficam, but I can see where it might be hard to catch in a stream of speech. Not to sound all technical, but both “s” and “f” are voiceless fricatives, meaning both have a lot of noisy friction in their pronunciation, in that sense they are quite similar. Chance are you are hearing that noisy friction. Dang those Brazilians talk fast!
