It's against the site guidelines to use profanity in any context, so by their own rules it cannot be taught.

I'm pretty sure this site is meant to be kid-friendly. It's not like there aren't other resources for finding out bad words in other languages.

Words and gestures translate differently in different continents, countries, regions, and places, even among generations as can the irritated responses or severe penalties for using them. If it's that important, check out a slang dictionary.

I agree with the others, this site is meant to be kid friendly.

There's always Google translate if you must know.

I've been learning Spanish for several years. I don't come across bad words very often. I know that people use them when speaking, but I don't see them a lot in the books or magazines I read. I suppose if I was reading different books and magazines that might be another story, but I don't.

If you come across it, you'll learn it. Another thing to keep in mind is that "naughty words" change over time. You really don't see them in language courses. If they put them in, the course would get outdated faster.

I honestly don't think words are bad, unless you mean them in a mean way. Please don't report me for this, For example: I didn't know until i was in 4th grade, that the word "Hell" was considered bad. I just wasn't raised that way, but I said it like I was talking about Heaven and the underworld, I didn't actually tell anyone to go to it because I had no idea it was used in that particular way. I will be in 7th grade next year, I still don't say bad words because of they're considered, and the only word I really have ever considered bad is the F-word. BECAUSE............. The A-word means donkey. The H-word is the underworld. The D-word means to be punished (more or less). And the B-word means female dog.

If anyone doesn't agree with me, and reports me, I will understand but please let me know before you do it. I already feel guilty just by putting this out there.
