    Question 16

    I read:

    "Sometimes it seems that the first words some people learn in a foreign language are all swearwords"

    And, in the glossary :
    swearwords = a taboo term

    Can anybody explain me ?

    I think you need someone who speaks Portugese for this.

    haha... I like swearwords...they have their place in EVERY language.

    swearwords means "palavras de baixo cal„o" in Portuguese.

    want some examples?
