Enterprising Brazilian Hookers Sign Up to Learn English Before the World Cup


The first rule of business? Know your customer. Brazilian sex workers are on it: The Association of Prostitutes is offering free English classes, since the Confederations Cup takes place in Brazil this June and the World Cup takes place in Brazil in June 2014. (Prostitution is legal in Brazil.)

According to the AP:

The president of the Association of Prostitutes of the city of Belo Horizonte says by telephone that 20 have already signed up for the courses and she expects at least 300 of the group’s 4,000 members to follow suit. The association is organizing the classes and seeking volunteer teachers.

Cida Vieira, the president of the association, tells CNN:

“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.”
“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.”
