The Association as Prostitution says it’s as important for prostitutes to learn English as taxi drivers.

IT’S AS YET unknown if Giovanni Trapattoni will lead his Ireland side to Brazil next year for the FIFA World Cup but the country’s preparations are in full swing.

In preparation for the influx of football fans from across the globe local businesses are offering English classes so employees can communicate with the visitors.

Prostitutes are not excluded from this group and in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, the Association of Prostitution is offering free classes starting in March, according to CNN.

The news network spoke to Cida Vieira, the president of the association, who said it was just as important for prostitutes to learn English as taxi drivers:

“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,” Vieira told CNN via phone.

Vieira added, “English will be very important to communicate with clients during the Cup. They’ll have to learn how to work out financial deals and also use a specialised vocabulary with sensual words and fetishes.”

Twenty prostitutes have already signed up, but Vieira expects at least 300 will take the classes.
