How to Swear in Englishee

"Little children and pregnant women should not watch."

I love the objective of this video. He is teaching Koreans how to swear in English, not because he wants them to swear, but so they can understand what the foreigners (insert scary Jaws music here) say when they are swearing at Koreans. Personally, I think he should have included a bit more of an opportunity for role-playing to practice the new vocabulary in an appropriate context. Also, pronunciation needs to be stressed, so that "fuck" doesn't end up sounding like necessary equipment for a hockey game.
