    I think it’s a nice idea but I think many of the schools I know would have serious reservations about sending their students there when two of the most popular videos which pop up are fucktard and [this word is edited out by the word filter].

    Valid words, certainly, but without appropriate caveats many language learners are going to surely use them in the wrong situation!

    That’s a valid concern ICAL. We are not necessarily looking for schools to send us students, we are just building something for ESL students to use to learn words/phrases that they wouldn’t otherwise and in an entertaining setting. I recognize that some of the content is over the top and/or plain vulgar but often times this is what people find to be most entertaining. This is a site for adults to use as they wish.

    Thank you for your feedback, we do appreciate it. Would you be willing to take this short 7 question survey to provide more feedback about your thoughts/experience on our page? http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZV5VDH8
