    Why can't people just control their tongues a bit? The f word has its part to play, and I have used it myself many times, but three times in every sentence? It's horrible.

    Fuc* and like seem to make up most of young europeans' repertoire when using english as a lingua franca. Depressing.

    It is a word remarkably quickly acquired by almost every EAL kid I ever taught.

    My rule of thumb has always been Never Swear in Foreign.

    I taught a child with EAL and learning difficulties who had what was described as a speech delay - she was generally silent. Until we had a visit from a local policeman who put his helmet on her head. F*** o** were the first words I heard her shout.

    I heard the same from shop lifters who claimed not to speak English until they were held in a secure room awaiting the arrival of the local police.

    I can eff and jeff with the fishiest fishwives but I find the continual f-wording of one of the Gogglebox family members very jarring. He can't string 3 words together without one of them being f---.
