Shitty words!

Hey, I am a teacher and use Memrise to help motivate my 11 year old students.
It’s been great, the kids love it. I only use it for a few weeks a year.
Today, the children discovered the word “shit” in the word list…and it’s French equivalent. Totally think it’s not appropriate. Any chance it could be removed?

You would need to state the name of the course (with the link) and preferably tag the author of the course. If after that, you don’t get a response. I would choose “ignore” for that word and any other similar ones.

How do you select “ignore”?

Go the level where the word you want to ignore is (I do this on my computer, not the App). At the top of all the words in that level you will see a small icon on the right with the word ‘Ignore’, click on that then scroll down till you get to the word and on the right you’ll see a little box. Click in that, then scroll to the bottom and select “Save”.

Why do you think it’s inappropriate to have this word in the dictionary? Your little students do not shit? Last time I checked shit was utterly natural thing in this world. By the way, it could be helpful to know how to say “shit” in some sort of an emergency, and motivating, too. For children “shit” is funnier, than “apple”, for instance. Of course, if you do not want to bore them to death.
