Sex workers learn to say raunchy words in English for World Cup

With the different sectors in Brazil gearing up for the World Cup, sex workers are no exception.

They too, are working hard... in the classroom.

These prostitutes are brushing up on their English by attending lessons once a week to prepare for the influx of foreigners.

More than 600,000 foreign tourists are expected in the South American country for the four-week tournament that kicks off June 12 in Sao Paolo.

In Belo Horizonte, a city that will host at least one game, Costa Rica vs England, sex workers have spent months learning common English words like the days of the week.

And then there are some... err, workplace phrases that they are likely to use. The raunchy terminology include words like fellatio and erection (and these are the words we are able to use).
