Dr Geraldine Horan, UCL German
The language learner is often well-versed in polite phrases, but lacks the necessary guidance on how to be rude. Swearing can shock and offend, yet this powerful form is largely ignored in foreign language learning. Dr Horan will discuss swearing practices in different languages, and whether we could teach the art of swearing.
