Wow this is soooooo cool :sunglasses: Am learning in the comfort of home at my own spare time and the next time someone bumps into me i’ll know what to say :sunglasses: I love the humour in the lesson :sweat_smile:

The middle finger is rude in my country too, even using the F-word is seen as very offensive and is rarely used. Almost everyone turns to see who you are if you use the F-word, its totally unacceptable and synonymous with being spoilt, rude and ill-mannered. Oh wait, the F-word is not a gesture or movement :laughing: :sweat_smile: Rolling of one’s eyes and then looking away when in disagreement is a rude gesture :sweat_smile:

Hej Adolf,
Jag tycker att det bästa sättet att prata hemlisar på är med ett hemligt språk. (I think the best way to speak about secrets is to have a secret language.) :grin:

Hej Adolf,
I Stockholm pratar nästan alla högt i telefon på tåg och bussar. (In Stockholm, almost everyone speaks loudly while on the phone on trains and buses.) Jag tycker också att det är oartigt. (I think it’s rude too.)

Ha det bra!

Inom den offentliga, högt med din telefon ( In public, loudly with your phone ) :unamused:

Giving the middle finger is indeed extremely rude. Do not ever do that.

However, many gestures that are considered rude in other cultures, such as making an O with your thumb and index finger, flipping a V with your palm towards you, or slapping one arm while making a fist are totally uncontroversial in Sweden. The bird is pretty much the only provocative gesture.

Hello Kvinnan Skratta,

Thank you for your comment.
Giving the finger is a rude hand gesture well known nowadays.
