Multi-cultural Day

My school has a multi-cultural day each year to celebrate cultural diversity. It is one of the highlights of our annual calendar where we share stories, traditions, language and food.

One of the things I have noticed is that young people, when they start interacting with people who speak other languages, want to know how to swear in that other language.

From the Swearaurus home page

How to insult, swear, cuss, and curse in 170 languages!

Swearsaurus is the world's largest resource of multilingual swearing. It will teach you a vast array of swearing, profanity, obscenity, blasphemy, cursing, cussing, and
insulting in a massive 170 languages - because it's good to experience cultural

Over 4,000 contributors have helped compile this Swearsaurus. Our
aim is to include all languages. New language submissions are always welcome.

It lacks some of the Australian languages - eg Pitjantjatjara, Nyanganyatjara, Yankuntjatjara, Luritja, ...
- but someone could add them.
