Ukrainian girls speak better English than Canadian men living in Quebec

19 January 2015

Quite surprisingly, when Canadian men travel to Ukraine to meet and date beautiful Ukrainian brides, its note rare to witness situation where the Eastern European woman speaks better English than the Canadian French man who visits her. Let’s understand why:

Level of Education in ex-Soviet Union countries is higher than in Quebec

It is probably a huge shock for you to read but according to 2011 estimation and Ukraine statistics, Literacy in Ukraine reach a high level 99.7% while in the meantime in Quebec the HUFFINGTONPOST magazine you can read that Illiteracy in Quebec is a massive problem in The Province. Half of the population is not able to read and write correctly. It gives you quite a different vision than what usual media advertise.

Eastern European countries are a big mix of different races, cultures and languages

Europe is an old continent with many different nations and language which had to coexist on a small territory compared to America. People have to work together and they are used to learning new language in order to travel or work.  It was already mentioned for example that in the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains, people speak a dialect composed of 4 different languages  .

Slavic women are hardworking women

When you travel to Kiev, Saint-Petersburg, Novosibirsk, it is quite obvious to understand that Eastern European people live in much harsher conditions than what we are used to witnessing in our modern western countries. People have to work hard to survive and make a living in Russia, Ukraine, Moldavia if we exclude a small amount of Oligarchs who took advantages of wild capitalism at the end of communism.   

As a result for a Russian or Ukrainian bride who wants to get married with a Canadian man, it’s not unusual to learn a new language like French or English in a few months.

In order to illustrate this article, I propose you to listen to this interview made in December 2014 with Oksana, who works as a translator and assistant in a large company in Kiev.
