I'll tell you how to say vestibular in English, if you will tell me how to say in English jangada, viola caipira, and capoeira.

 

The problem is in the US we don't have vestibulares.  College entrance exams?  Yes.  The SAT?  Yes.  They are close, but they are not exactly vestibulares.  Some things need to be explained because a good translation for them doesn't exist.  Maybe something like..... "Last month I took a vestibular, something much like a college entrance exam in your country."
