When you learn English, it pays to be practical....

Most times, when I ask people why they want to learn English, they say, "I need English for my job." When I ask them a few more questions, it turns out that they never really use English at work and probably won't in the near future.

However, some people really do need English for their work - or perceive that they might. As the Associated Press reports, an organization in Brazil is offering free English classes to prostitutes, to help them prepare for, er, increased customer demand during the next World Cup of football.
