Dirty Words (A to B)

Dirty words... Swearwords... Malas palabras en inglés...

- Seño, cuándo vamos a aprender malas palabras en inglés?

Comprendo, es una de esas situaciones en las cuáles no sabemos qué hacer o cómo proceder... Principalmente si uno trabaja bajo dependencia, no?

Pero, bueno, es parte de aprender este idioma, también. No está de más saberlas, es más, HAY que saberlas por si alguna vez se dan una vuelta por aquí o hablan con un native speaker... Para evitar malentendidos o saber qué nos están diciendo!!! (O qué quisiéramos decirles!)
