Mensagem:  Hello there Folks, how are ye all getting on? Well......I´d like to know your opnion about, SWEARING IN ENGLISH. Do ye really know how to swear in English? After studying English for 7 years and living abroad (Ireland) for two, I came to the conclusion that cursing (like a native speaker) in English might be as difficult as the language itself. It´s a very cultural thing. It´s not just translating your language into the other and that´s it. No!! It goes beyond that. That´s why I´m writing an article that explains everything about swearing in English, how to swear properly. Swearing in English is not always bad and it might be as funny as a joke, which does not happen in Portuguese and when it does, it´s very rare. Anyway, if some of you are interested in getting that article just send an e-mail to me and I´ll send it to all of you as soon as I get it done. I guess that´s all....all the best folks and keep up the good work Ricardo !!!

Slán gó fóill !!!

Cherrio !!
