English Lessons For Your Russian Fiance
Once you have met the woman of your dreams, and you have decided to bring her to America, there are some practical things that you can do while you are waiting for her to arrive.
One thing is for her to learn as much English as she can before she comes. It is one of the best things you can do for her while you are waiting for the fiancé visa paperwork to be processed.
First of all, it is going to be a lot cheaper for you to give her private English lessons in Russia than it is in America.
English lessons usually can be arranged for two to three dollars per hour. My wife took three two-hour private lessons per week.
That worked out to be about twelve to fifteen dollars per week or fifty to sixty dollars per month.
That is much less expensive than one on one English lessons in America. My wife supplemented her private lessons with group lessons a couple of nights per week.
I recommend that you call your fiancé on the telephone a minimum of two to three times per week during the time you are waiting for the fiancé visa to be processed in order to keep your relationship strong.
The phone calls will reinforce what she learns in her English classes.
If she doesn’t speak very much English at first, speak very slowly, using simple words. Use the electronic translator. Spell the words for her she doesn’t know.
Be patient. You will be surprised at how fast her English improves over the waiting period for the visa to processed.
The telephone calls will keep your relationship alive during that agonizing waiting period.
The English lessons enroll her into the reality that her life is going to change soon. It helps her to get through the hardest period – the wait for the visa to be processed.
The hardest period is going to be the period from the time you propose to her and when she actually comes to America.
Approximately forty percent of Fiancé Visa applications fall by the wayside. That is because the couples did not have the resolve to see it through to the end, or they got lazy about completing the necessary paperwork .
You have to find a way to keep the spark alive. You can’t let the romance die because of lack of attention.
By you paying for her English lessons, you let her know that there is a reason for her to learn a new language – she is going to live in a new country. You are showing her you care about her.
By telephoning her on a regular basis, you keep that romantic spark alive.
I guarantee you that if you do not make the effort to call her frequently or prepare her for her new life by enrolling her in English lessons, you are taking the risk that your spark will die.
The more English she knows before she gets to America, the easier it is going to be for her to make the transition to life in a new country. It will help to reduce culture shock.
