Tips how to date a Ukrainian woman with no English
I would say that one of the most intimidating factors that prevent Western men from seeking a relationship with a Ukrainian or Russian woman for marriage can be that many of these women are not fluent English (German, French, Spanish or Italian) speakers.
Getting to know someone can be hard enough even if you both speak the language! 🙂 However there are a number of reasons why the prospect of meeting, dating and even falling in love with a Ukrainian or Russian lady who does not speak a word of English (or any other foreign language) is possible and even likely when you choose the right woman.
The following article will help address some concerns of Western men who are looking into marrying a Ukrainian or Russian woman. We will discuss the initial language related barriers to finding a Ukrainian / Russian wife as well as some of possible solutions to this linguistically motivated problem.
Diagnosing the language barrier
Different potential brides will have a varying level of skill with the English (or German, French, Spanish or Italian) language. Most women in Ukraine will only know a few words or proper nouns while some will have near fluency in English.
Like all other groups of people a great deal of diversity in skills exists. In order find out how much person to person communication you will be able to accomplish with your potential bride you should inquire as to her level of English with the organization or service that you will be meeting her. This will allow you to prepare yourself using some of these techniques before you formally or physically meet this woman.
There are a number of ways that you can get around even the highest language barrier when dealing with Ukrainian and Russian women. In this section of the article we will go over some of the main ways that organizations help people communicate with each other for the purposes of finding someone to settle down with for life.
Solution #1: Nonverbal Communication
While a great deal of our language comes in the form of spoken language there are a great deal of things one can communicate simply by using facial expressions, physical touches and hand and body gestures. Using these cues will help a great deal when trying to learn about another person who does not happen to speak the same language as you. Facial expressions will be important as well and that is why meeting face to face or via Skype is an excellent way to help find out who the person you may plan on marrying is inside and outside.
Solution #2: Translators
When taking your initial meeting with a potential Ukrainian or Russian bride, many marriage & matchmaking agencies will provide the services of translators and other visual and audio aids that will help you say exactly what you need to say as well as allow the woman to speak to you.
These translators will be able to act as a bridge between you and your potential bride and will help you to fill in the gaps where nonverbal communication and other methods and techniques are insufficient.
If you make your intentions known it is very easy to find a Ukrainian or Russian woman that will dedicate herself to learning her new language. Many of these women have a number of services available to them to help them learn English and acculturate. They can use Skype or other internet websites along with different software programs that make learning English a breeze.
They will also pick up a great deal of the English language simply by speaking with and being around you and an English speaking society. Where there is a will, there is a way and you can help to make your possible bride a much better English speaker while at the same time getting to know her and making sure that you are making the right decision.
While being from opposite sides of the world and speaking radically different languages while seem like a huge impediment at first these methods can help one to overcome that barrier. Not only is the language barrier not as high as you would imagine, it may even help a couple to bond by engaging in mutual activity. Much like finding a common interest with someone else in your life, the pursuit of speaking English can be a fun exercise to allow you and your potential or future wife to spend some quality time together while at the same time bettering each other and yourselves.
