The English language course for women

Hello, welcome everyone to our English language course for women. I am the site administrator. I decided to create this course proceeding from my personal experience of relations with one of the Russian women. Of course, when I just started communicate with her I was very pleased with this fun adventure. However, as it turned out, it was not so easy. It had begun a series of not very pleasant experiences, up to stressful situations (reaching up the complete confusion) - especially when it started to go well and came to dating.

I would like, as well as all men, to enjoy by the really interesting and exciting communication, but the proverbial language barrier completely spoiled all impressions. My girlfriend and I could never fully relax on our dates, having plunged into the sea of pleasure. There had often been occurred all sorts of misunderstandings, it was completely lacked the ability to discuss with a woman the things which I really wanted to talk. I had to learn Russian for several years, and this was despite the fact that I had known Russian pretty well before.

And yet I understood that I didn’t know spoken Russian namely in the field of dating, I just did NOT know what to say on a date. All usual language courses, including books, taught to speak only in some common situations. However, they are not able to help us in such a truly important matter as romantic relationships and dating. I had to spend a lot of time on my own little success attempts to translate with dictionaries; I also used to invite teachers to help me (and it's pretty embarrassing, If you consider that discussed issues were very personal). In addition, the whole process had been long and tedious.

After I was very tired of all this, I really wanted someone to put together all the right words and phrases in one place and taught them to me! Just at that moment I was struck by the thought that namely I had to create such a language course that would help people in the situation in which I was then. I wanted to create a course, helping the rest women to get acquainted easily and nice talk with an English-speaking partner directly, without dictionaries, translators and unnecessary witnesses!

For not speaking English Women

At first I thought that the site helps men in communication with their soulmate, but I have never had any idea that it was created to make single women happy as well.

But then I started correspondence with ladies who look for an English speaking man abroad. After changing several e-mails with them I understood that we have to work out a course for these women. This course has to help them in solving their problems.

I noticed that Russian can sound in different ways: it depends, if a woman or a man speaks. So, I made a decision to make my new course very specific, so that women could better understand it and feel what I want to say them. In meant for us that we had to make more new recordings and changes, but these efforts are worth making.

Who needs this language course

We decided to develop this language course for those Russian-speaking women who are in close communication with the English-speaking men, and are going to meet them in real life. Certainly, our course is also suitable for those who want to learn just a little talking in English. After learning of our English language course, you will become much more confident in yourself, when you want to communicate with an English-speaking man. You will be able to get maximum pleasure, when you meet with him, and minimum of unpleasant stressful situations.

So, thanks to our course you will be able:

  • Save for yourself a lot of personal time, than in the case if you’ll study English language yourself.
  • To avoid the need to invite a teacher or interpreter that’ll help you in communication. Thus, your personal relationships will remain only between you and your second half.
  • You will learn about things that are everyday but the really important part of any love relationship.
  • Having learned to communicate in English, you’ll achieve sharp improvements in your relationship with your partner; you’ll enjoy together with him by light and calm mutual communication.
  • This knowledge will bring you a lot of new interesting abilities, which you can use when meeting and dating.

Having mastered our course, you’ll make to your English-speaking partner a pleasant surprise, and it will dramatically increase your chances on a favorable outcome of your relationship. Indeed, the ability to speak in his native language immediately lifts you to new heights, in your man's eyes.

Until then,

Best wishes and good luck with your English!

How to talk about yourself in English on a Dating site

When you talk about yourself, about who you are (I am a girl or I am a woman) or describe yourself (I am very nice or I am a beautiful lady), you need to remember or know nothing at all. You just have to put into your head, “I am”, because, if you’ll forget a little word “am”, you can be misunderstood; or understood, but people might wince in disgust. How would you like a stranger’s letter where he writes something like, "I have a cute and very clever man"?

Simple template

So, there are no wisdoms. Take any formula that you prefer:

Я ... менеджер I am a ......... manager
Я... бухгалтер I am a ......... accountant
Я ... леди I am a ......... lady
Я ... учитель I am a ......... teacher
Я ... женщина I am a ......... woman
Я ... девушка I am a ......... girl
Я ... студентка I am a ......... student
Я ... ("person" не переводится) I am a ......... person

And talk about yourself whatever you want, inserting adjectives instead of points from your vocabulary, or directly from the Dictionary 1.1, which is reproduced at the end of this page.

Я жизнерадостная студентка I am a cheerful student
Я симпатичная девушка I am a pretty girl
Я романтичная леди I am a romantic lady
Я добрая и заботливая женщина I am a kind and caring woman
Я надёжная и порядочная I am a reliable and honest person
Я хороший менеджер I am a good manager
Я творческий учитель I am a creative teacher

What should we have?

Я весёлая девушка I am a funny girl
Я работаю менеджером (Я менеджер). I am a manager.
Я привлекательная молодая женщина. I am a good looking young woman.
Мои друзья говорят, что я надёжная и порядочная. My friends say I am reliable and honest.
Я весёлая, общительная, остроумная (персона). I am a cheerful, sociable, witty person.

When do you need an article?

Have you noticed that in the sentence “I am reliable and honest” a word “a” is missing? It is not a mistake! If a sentence has no noun in (e.g. girl, woman, person, manager) then an article puts NOT..

Continue to praise yourself in the same spirit:

Я творческая и энергичная, а также заботливая, внимательная и чуткая. I am creative and energetic, also caring and considerate.

Pay attention!
If a word after the “a” article begins with a vowel, you need to put down “an”:

Я открытая, искренняя девушка I am an open, frank girl
Я привлекательная женщина I am an attractive woman
Я порядочный человек I am an honest person
(honest произносится как онест)

Choose a word with the exact value

Get used to work with every word. Never use a word, if you are not sure that it means exactly what you mean. Finding the right word in a Russian-English dictionary, write down all its English meanings. Then, do not be lazy to clarify what each of them means exactly. Synonyms by no means always have similar values.

Например

Уравновешенность, уравновешенный - balance, counterbalnce, poise, even tempere, well-balanced.

Теперь смотрим каждое значение:

  • balance - весы, равновесие, маятник, баланс бухгалтерский, приводить в равновесие, взвешивать;
  • counterbalnce - противовес, уравновешивать на весах;
  • poise - равновесие, манера держаться, осанка, балансировать, удерживать в равновесии, взвешивать в уме;
  • even - ровный, гладкий, уравновешенный, спокойный (о характере), равный, одинаковый, чётный (о числах);
  • temper - смягчать, умерять, характер, настроение
  • even temper - уравновешенный, спокойный характер
  • well-balanced - уравновешенный человек.

That is, of the five values only two are suitable for us, and you must be careful with the use of them:

Я серьёзный и уравновешенный человек I am a serious and well-balanced person
Я добра, терпелива, со спокойным характером I am kind, patient and even tempered

Примеры употребления:
I am a pretty, honest and bright girl. I am very sensitive, talented and original.
I think I am romantic, affectionate, reliable, sincere, open,resourrceful, eager, witty, warm. I am an Orthodox Christian, but not a fanatic.
I am an unusually russian women: confident in myself,eager. But I am passionate, temping and very seductive!!
I have a good heart, I am a romantic woman, loyal, sincere woman. I am loving and caring.
I am a cheerful, sociable and sincere person. My friends say that I am a glamorous and interesting woman. I'm a great dreamer.

Inform your age

When we want to inform our age, we say in Russian: "I'm 25 years old." In English it’s impossible to say the same thing literally. You just have to remember:

Мне 25 лет I am 25 years old
Моему сыну 10 лет My son is 10 years old
Ему 36 лет Не is 36 y.o.

At the same time we would like to ask you to be careful with our favorite Russian word "me" which we use even more often than "I". So, our entire standard phrases, "I like", "I'm cold," "I am sad," "I want," "I need", in English sound each in its own way, and for the formation every of them different rules are used:

Мне нравится музыка I like music
Мне 25 лет I am 25 years old
Мне это надоело! I am sick and tired of it!
Мне грустно I am sad
Мне хочется сказать I would like to say
Мне холодно I am cold
Мне кажется .... It seems to me that...
Мне нужно уйти I need to leave
Мне сказали правду I was told the truth
Можно мне войти? Саn I come in?
Мне можно плавать I am allowed to swim
(то есть кто-то разрешил)
Мне нельзя возвращаться одной I may not come back alone
Мне всё равно I don't care
Можно мне попросить вас? May I ask you?
Мне было очень приятно It is been a pleasure
Мне не удалось это сделать I didn't manage it

How to talk about your hobbies and interests in English

When we want to talk about our hobbies, the first thing that comes to our mind is to report what we love to do. It’s very easily to say about this, using the forms “I love” (я люблю) or “I like” (мне нравится). Herewith, do not forget about the shade:

So, to tell about your favorite activity most often use one of the forms:

Я люблю ... I love ...
Мне нравится ... I like ...

And write what exactly we love to do. There may be two options:

  • Using of the words that indicates an action (to read, draw, travel).
  • Using of the word that indicates a process(reading, drawing, traveling).

For example, like this:

Мне нравится рисовать I like to draw
Мне нравится рисование I like drawing
Я обожаю читать I love to read
Я обожаю чтение I love reading
Я люблю путешествовать I like to travel
Я люблю путешествия I like travelling

Pay attention!
When you use the verb (to read, draw), then the particle “to”:is required: I like to draw..

Мне нравится рисовать I like to draw

How to tell that you like to play

When you want to inform that you like to play some musical instrument, using of the preposition “on” is not required. Instead, in the English the article “the” is used (namely with the word “play musical instruments”): I like to play the piano.

Я люблю играть на фортепиано I like to play the piano
Я люблю играть на гитаре I like to play the guitar
Я люблю играть на скрипке I like to play the violin

But!
When you report that you like to play some games (basketball, tennis, chess), it’s no need at all to use any preposition.

Я люблю играть в биллиард I like to play billiards
Я люблю играть в баскетбол I like to play basketball
Я люблю играть в теннис I like to play tennis
Я люблю играть в карты I like to play cards

As for card games

If we are talking simply about playing cards, then use the expression “play cards” (I play cards - Я играю в карты).

When refers to gambling (not only the card game), then use the word gamble (They like gambling - они любят азартные игры; I like to play cards - Я люблю играть в карты).

Words, denoting action

In the Russian language usually use words, denoting action: (I love to read – Я люблю читать). But in the English, the most commonly is used form of the word, referring to the process: (I love reading - Я люблю чтение). Although in Russian it translates in the usual way; therefore, it is best to describe your classes namely this way:

Мне нравится рисовать (процесс рисования) I like drawing
Я люблю путешествовать (процесс путешествия) I like travelling
Я обожаю читать (процесс чтения) I love reading
Я люблю плавание (процесс плавания) I like swimming

Use the same form, when we want to say we love something else (music, cats and dogs, children, cinema, etc.).

Мне нравится музыка I like music
Я люблю кино (американский вариант) I love movies
Я люблю кошек и собак I love cats and dogs
Я люблю кино I love cinema

Other words, in addition to “like” and “love”

As mentioned above, words “like” and “love” have different emotional coloring. In the Russian language to enhance meaning use the words “very; very much – очень; очень сильно”. In English there are similar words too, and there are much more.

Я очень люблю плавать I like swimming a lot
Я очень люблю готовить I like cooking very much
Мне так нравится музыка I like music so much
Мне очень нравится читать I like to read a great deal

But words “like” and “love”, there are other forms to talk about your hobbies and preferences. Moreover, these expressions are used more often than usual “like” and “love”.

Я интересуюсь ... I am interested in ...
Я люблю ... I am fond of ...
Мои интересы включают ... My interests include ...
Мне доставляет удовольствие .... I enjoy ...
Я обожаю I adore ...
Я предпочитаю ... I prefer ...
Я увлекаюсь ... (люблю, имею склонность) I have a fancy for ...
Я помешана на ... I am crazy about ...
Я страстно увлечена ... I am a keen on ...

Examples of use:

Мои интересы включают чтение, кино My interests include reading, cinema
Я интересуюсь музыкой, искусством I am interested in music, art,
Я всегда с удовольствием занимаюсь садоводством I always enjoy gardening
Я очень люблю лошадей I am very fond of horses
Я большой любитель цветов I am very fond of flowers
Я обожаю ходить в музеи I adore visiting museums
Я предпочитаю активный отдых: теннис, плавание I prefer active rest: tennis, swimming
Я любитель собак I am dog-fancier
Я любитель музыки I am a music-lover
Я увлекаюсь вязанием I have a fancy for knitting
Я помешана на скейтборде I am crazy about skateboarding
Я страстно люблю театр I am a keen on theater

What if you do not like anything?

So that to say what you do not like, you can use the word “dislike” (not like) or negative forms, as well as some special expressions:

Я не люблю ... I dislike ...
Мне не нравится ... I don't like ...
Я не люблю ... I don't love ..
Я не выношу (не терплю) ... I abhor ...
Я ненавижу ... I hate ...
Меня раздражает, что ... It vexes me that ...

Examples:

Я не люблю грубых, невоспитанных людей I don't love boors
Я не люблю холодную погоду I dislike cold weather
Мне не нравится слишком громкая музыка I don't like too loud music
Я не выношу безделья I abhor being idle
Я ненавижу людей, которые бьют собак I hate people who beat dogs
Меня раздражает, что они всегда опаздывают It vexes me that they are always late

Get used to work with each word

Never use the word, if you are not sure that it means exactly what you mean. Finding the right word in the Russian-English dictionary, write down all its English meanings, and then do not be lazy to clarify what each one means. Synonyms do not always have similar values.

For example:
Заниматься (кем-то, чем-то) - occupy/busy oneself (with), be occupied (with), be engaged (in); engage (in); go in for, take up; indulge (in); devote oneself (to) (посвящать себя ); concern oneself (with) (интересоваться); attend (to) (выполнять); learn, study;

Теперь смотрим каждое значение:

  • occupy - занимать пространство, время;
       This hobby occupies all of my free time. — Это увлечение поглощает все мое свободное время.
       occupy (with) - заниматься чем-то;
  • busy oneself (with) - занимать себя чем-то;
  • be occupied (with) - быть занятым чем-то;
  • be engaged (in) - быть занятым, заинтересованным чем-то;
  • engage (in) - заниматься чем-то, быть занятым чем-то;
  • go in for - интересоваться, увлекаться чем-то;
  • take up - браться (за что-то); заниматься (чем-то);
  • indulge (in) - удовлетворять свои желания, не отказывать себе (в чем-то); доставлять удовольствие, радовать;
  • devote oneself (to) - посвящать себя (чему-то возвышенному), уделять, жертвовать (время, деньги);
  • concern oneself (with) - заниматься, интересоваться чем-л. (in, with);
  • attend (to) - заботиться, следить (to - за чем-то); выполнять; посещать; присутствовать (на лекциях, собраниях);
  • learn - учиться; учить (что-то); научиться (чему-то);
  • study - изучать, исследовать (внимательно, тщательно); заниматься, учиться;
