English Skills and Russian Dating

1. September 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

Thanks to our team of skilled translators, members of can easily chat and flirt with Russian women. However, while RLM makes it easy for Western men and Russian women to communicate, gentlemen should be prepared to deal with the challenges that come with dating a non-native speaker.

When it comes to language abilities, the ladies of RussianLoveMatch fall into one of five categories:

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

Members can search for women in a particular group by clicking the “Search” button located at the top of and then selecting a level of proficiency in the “English Skill” drop down menu.

So how important are a lady’s English skills when it comes to Russian dating? That depends on you. Do you feel you can truly connect with a lady with limited English skills? Do you have the patience to deal with a low-level speaker? Are you comfortable relying on a translator? If you’re up for the challenge, that’s great! However, not everyone is able to cope with elementary speakers, and gentlemen should think carefully before courting women who know only a smattering of English.


Language barriers are an inevitable part of any international relationship. To have the best chance of success on, gentlemen should think carefully (and honestly) about the level of speakers they’re willing to court and then pursue women with the English skills they desire.
