Having your potential wife familiar with the English language will reduce the cultural shock of her first few weeks in the country and give her confidence in being able to handle the usual day-to-day activites. Knowing some English will help her with tasks such as using a oven, reading a thermastat, watching TV, or comprehending directions. Some of the other benefits of having an English speaking companion will be deeper conversations, fewer misunderstandings, and informed decision making at the end of her visit.
If you are concerned about the level of difficulty with learning English, the fact is most of the women in Russian and Spanish speaking countries have been watching American movies, and listening to American music for years. So, they are familiar with English pronunciation, and simply need to learn the word meanings.
In most of the cities below, three separate English courses of are available: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each course consist of a total of eight classes meeting twice weekly over four weeks. These English lessons are taught by a certified English instructor, and instruction is provided on a one-on-one basis. The course includes textbooks and English language CDs or DVDs. After payment is made, we will contact the lady to schedule English lessons.
If you find someone to be an English tutor, most likely you will be paying for a translator (who probably has no accountability to you) to socialize with your lady a couple times a week. Many times the lady may never receive any English lessons whatsoever.
If you do hire a translator, while they may be proficient in speaking and understanding English, this does not imply that he or she has any professional teaching ability. Will this person be able to explain sentence structure, verb endings, and the various grammar rules that are in the English language.
