Brazil Working Girls Go to English School in Time for World Cup

Belo Horizonte's prostitutes

Taxi drivers and bellboys aren’t the only ones going back to school to learn a little English ahead of the 2014 World Cup to be hosted in various cities across Brazil.

In the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte, prostitutes are lining up for free English classes that will be offered by the regional Association of Prostitution starting in March.

“Across Brazil, lots of businesses in the private sector are getting prepared and making their workers more qualified for the Cup. Well, this is a profession, too,” Cida Vieira, the president of the association said.

“English will be very important to communicate with clients during the Cup,” Vieira said.

“They’ll have to learn how to work out financial deals and also use a specialized vocabulary with sensual words and fetishes.”

Vieira said that 20 prostitutes had already signed up, but that she expected at least 300 women to participate in the classes once they started.

The association is in talks with teachers and English speakers to provide their services free of charge, similar to deals they have with doctors and health care workers. The classes would last six to eight months.

Belo Horizonte will host football games not only for the World Cup in 2014, but also for the Confederations Cup, that will take place in June 2013.

    Learning English
    First rule of marketing: know your customers and speak their language. A great new book/ebook available worldwide, “[i][i]What Foreigners Need To Know About America From A To Z: How to understand crazy American culture, people, government, business, language and more,” [/i][/i]helps foreigners benefit from a better understanding, including our language. Endorsed by ambassadors, educators, and editors, it even has chapters on English grammar and speech that identify the key problems common to foreigners (and Americans!) and how they can polish their communication skills. Why is English such a monster to learn? Here’s an excerpt from the book: “As you may know, English grammar rules are full of generalities and the generalities are full of exceptions. Even the exceptions have exceptions. This is why English is one of the most difficult languages to master.” The book (and e-book) is filled with tips anyone can use to polish their speech and understand the key basics of English. Probably the number one problem foreigners have is slowing down when speaking English, followed by pronouncing consonants. As the book points out, foreigners may think they know English but in many cases they have difficulty communicating to Western ears because of the common problems most have. http://www.AmericaAtoZ.com
