As a speaker of Chinese and Spanish, I can say firsthand that lots of innocent words in a language can end up sounding like others, especially when there's an accent involved and you're not careful. Try to talk to your student and help her understand the meaning of what she said, how it shouldn't be used in a professional setting, etc... and maybe work on her pronunciation! Alternatively, find out who thought it would be funny to teach her that word. Then kick their ass.

It's very easy for people who are learning a new language to also learn the in wanted words because they are said so often around them. Op should have read over the essay first though.

Learning swear words in another language is middle school 101. I don't speak Spanish but can still say a whole lot of cuss words in Spanish. So, she probably already knew how to say it.

ya but words from the same language have different meanings for different regions. For example I know words that are innocent to Spanish speakers from Puerto Rico but extremely offensive to Spanish speakers from Mexico. I always thought 'Fuck' would be pretty universal though, but who knows...its so commonly used these days I can see where someone might get confused if they don't know better.

I feel like OP should have taught her that certain words aren't acceptable or polite to be sure that she didn't use them. If she's still in the process of learning, then more than likely she didn't know what it meant or was trying to use a different word.

Not to be the pessimistic commenter of the thread, but seriously, what other word could she have been trying to say in the sentence, "What a fucking day."? I don't think either ducking, or lucking, or bucking would've been a suitable replacement.

#10, who else would it be? That's not a really good pick-up line. I hope your PM to #8 was a little more clever than that (and not just "ur hot"), you schvitzer!

#27 I feel like in a weird way you just stood up for my honor there...I liked it :D #10 Is it me? Or is the legend true, and there are there really no girls on the Internet? I guess we'll never know...

#51, aw, that's OK, but later on I egged him on to PMing you. I figure that way, you can deal with him or decisively reject him. Yes, I have found that there are some girls on the Internet, but you have to land a lot of catfish until you find a real one.
