In Ukraine, you will find not only some of the most beautiful women in the world but also the smartest. They are classy, sophisticated, and quick witted. But you’d be wrong to think that they are uptight and overly serious. These ladies also know how to have a good time.
Due to these qualities, more and more men from around the world are dating or at least with they could date Ukrainian ladies. If you are interested in dating one, then you’ll have to figure out how to properly communicate with her.
Most Ukrainian women probably speak Ukrainian (a derivative of Slavic) or Russian. While some understand and speak English relatively well, there are still some who may not have as much exposure to the English language as others. Regardless, there will be times when you two won’t understand one another.
Not to worry, there are still ways to overcome this language barrier. Here are some ways to ensure effective communication with Ukraine women:
Use simple terms and expressions.
If her English is limited then refrain from using big and complicated words. Stick to simple phrases and sentences first then gradually help her in expanding her English vocabulary.
Don’t overwhelm her by using complex words and sentences right away. Not only will you take time explaining what they mean, but there’s also a possibility that there’s no Ukrainian context for them. And if you are trying to learn her language, request the same thing from her. This way, you both learn each other’s languages at the same time and pace.
Carry around a Ukrainian-English dictionary.
This is useful when you want to learn her language and the proper pronunciation of the words. With a dictionary, you also get to learn how to read a bit of Ukrainian. You can definitely use this to your advantage when navigating around Odessa on your own. Reading the signs and symbols won’t be so challenging as long as you have a guide that you can always refer to.
Rely on a translation app.
The good thing about technology is that there’s almost every device and app to suit your needs. You can find apps on Android and iStore with different translating features.
Of course, there’s the standard iTranslate and Google Translate, but other apps that are just as useful include TripLingo, SayHi, Voice Translater Free, and iHandy. There are also apps that could actually teach you another language, such as Duolingo, Memrise, LinguaLift, and HelloTalk.
Use pictures or other visual cues.
When words fail you, use pictures to get your point across. No fuss and no more running out of words. Showing a picture is all you need to help the two of you understand each other. Using visuals is also an effective method of learning each other’s language.
Learning her language isn’t just useful for communication, it also exposes you to Ukrainian culture. This eye opening experience would help you not only understand her better but possibly also learn about Ukrainian values.
Whether you are dating or marrying a Ukrainian woman, it’s important that you communicate with her. Otherwise you wouldn’t be able to get to know her or even gauge how compatible you are with each other. Getting over the language barrier might take some work, but if it helps you establish a deeper connection then it would be worth it.
