Ugly words that need to know if someone is talking bad to you, curses, injury,not very elegant words. Almost all say that when you learn a foreign language, must learn the bad words to know if anyone addressed your ugly words.is true? you learn bad words too? Is important to learn these words well, even in your native language you do not use bad words?.

Bad words have the power to evoke laughter and could excite the learner of any languages. Laughter would then draw in interest to learn more and more new words from the language.

Only drowsy people learn bad words since saying them improves wakefulness. It could have been tedious to study when the eyes of the reader often close. Its a very good bet no one feels like going to sleep when reading bad words are they?

lol Well when I was in school I did. Which reminds me of a funny story. The German cousins were visiting and my sister-in-law was trying to describe an auto accident to them, so she said that the cars had "gebumst". Well that's the German equivalent of the "f" word, so the cousins were laughing so hard that she couldnt' continue the story...

I think it is important to learn all of the language..even if you don't speak some of the words. It's important to understand if someone else is saying the words to you.

When i was at school i had learnt a new language from a bunch of my friends who belong to the same community they just managed to get into our school and then our lives.i still remember the first word i learnt of their native language was a bad word and i ended up knowing more than their normal words.its the tendency of a normal person to get attracted to the bad easily----clever ones would try to get out of it the others would go on with them.great day.

I am intyerested in foreign languages especially french and spanish. But, the first thing that I'd like to learn is the good and polite words.Such as good morning, thank you, sorry, or I love you, etc. Even in my own language which is Filipino, I don't practice speaking the bad words and I despise them so much. It is kind of humiliating and degrading a person in a very personal manner. But, of course, I know those bad words unless they are spoken in a different dialect or language that I am familiar with... Have a great day, Icesmile.:-)

dear ice, i prefer to learn the courteous words rather than bad words. people will like to teach the translation to hello, how are you, thank you, welcome, etc. rather than f..k! am sure you would not use it often than using the good words. ann
