Dating Russian Women Who Don't Speak English

17. April 2013 by Dasha 0 Comments

Thanks to the skilled translators who assist the women of HRB, it’s easy to forget that many Russian and Ukrainian women speak limited English. However, men shouldn’t dismiss the challenges of an intercultural relationship. Here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to dating women who don’t speak your language.


Men can search for women by language skill on Hot Russian Brides’ Advanced Search page. HRB categorizes the ladies’ English skills one of five ways:


  • Poor - Can only read/write with the help of a dictionary
  • Elementary – Speaks only a little English, has a limited vocabulary
  • Intermediate – Able to correspond via email, may struggle with live conversation
  • Proficient – Able to converse with little or no trouble
  • Fluent – Speaks fluently, although may speak with an accent

 Members of HRB should definitely give some thought to the pros and cons of each level. It will naturally be much more difficult to communicate with a poor or elementary speaker than with a woman who is proficient or fluent in English. Are you comfortable dealing with potential language barriers and misunderstandings? It also helps to study Russian and work with a lady on her English. Do you have the time and patience for such endeavors? Many men embrace the challenges that come with language differences, while others prefer to stick to fluent speakers. Men are of course welcome to pursue any lady they wish, but it pays to think ahead about potential challenges. 


We should also note that many women on HRB study languages other than English. Here's how to search for women who speak Spanish, French, German, etc.
