A much needed technology

Swearsaurus can teach you "a vast array of swearing, profanity, obscenity, blasphemy, cursing, cussing, and insulting in a massive 133 languages - because it's good to experience cultural diversity!" Another fine service from InsultMonger, the fine folks who brought you a comprehensive index of insults and the ever-popular Ask-a-sociopath column.

If you are interested in a less offensive exploration of languages, the Speech Accent Archive examines the accented speech of speakers from 395 different language backgrounds reading the same sample paragraph.
