Hosting the World Cup causes an economic boom in pretty much every imaginable sector, including prostitution, which is leading the “working girls” of Brazil to enroll in free English classes to improve their hosting skills and ability to make more money off their customers.
The World Cup coming to Brazil in 2014 is a business just like any other, and apparently, it’s being taken seriously by everyone who has a chance to make some extra cash that month from the thousands who will be travelling to Brazil to watch the matches.
The idea of giving prostitutes some English classes is in order to help them better explain themselves when it comes to prices and also understand what their clientele would like them to do.
According to Cida Vieira, president of the Association of Prostitutes in the city of Belo Horizonte, 20 have already signed up for the free classes that will begin in March and will carry on for eight months, and expects as many as 300 to join them.
It will be important for the girls who will be able to use English to let their clients know what they are charging and learn about what turns them on. And for the same reasons we are also thinking of offering free French and Italian classes.
The Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte will host three matches of the Confederations Cup and six games of the World Cup.
