How do you find a Thai bride if you don’t speak Thai?
Wow, this language barrier issue is very close to my heart!
I’ve been searching for a Chinese wife for over three years now. I’m an ordinary British guy. I don’t speak Mandarin Chinese!
So how did I overcome the language barrier in my own search for an exotic Asian bride?
In this article I’ll reveal my secrets, which are:
English speaking Thai women do exist! Date these and most of your problems are solved.
English speaking women are very plentiful on the Thai Love Links dating site.
For some reason many American and Canadian men prefer to marry women who don’t speak any English. Maybe non-English speaking girls are seen as being more exotic. Whatever the reason, these guys sure are making life hard for themselves.
So after an uphill struggle with my first Asian girlfriend (who didn’t speak much English at all), I resolved to only date English speaking women from then on.
So once you’ve signed up with Thai Love Links, which sort of English speakers should you approach?
Ideally you should look for someone who has learnt English at University or as part of her job.
Be a little wary of girls who have learnt English from working in bars. Bar girls don’t often make such good Thai brides, and there’s also a risk that they may be scammers. Scammers find it much easier to scam men if they can actually write in English.
One other thing – English speakers are often very intelligent women with decent jobs in Thailand. They’ll be quite ambitious in their choice of husband. Don’t be surprised if the English speaking girls turn you down, especially if they’re much younger than you. If this happens, move on and just try more girls. Dating is just a numbers game, and sooner or later you’ll find The One!
Meeting English Speaking Thai Women in Person
Of course there will be words your Thai girlfriend doesn’t understand but this isn’t too hard to solve.
When you meet your Thai girl in person, it’s a good idea to try and determine what her level of English is like. In time, you’ll understand the words she knows.
Try to use simple English – use words like big and small instead of massive, gigantic, huge etc.
One of my Chinese girlfriends only understood very basic English. We managed quite well because we could point to things, and also use her hand-held electronic translator.
A good tip I have is to install a Thai-English dictionary on your smart phone if you have one. These are great for translating single words.
If you’re serious about finding a Thai bride, then consider learning some of the Thai language. While you’ll need an awful lot of time on your hands to become fluent in Thai, it’s not too hard to learn many basic words and phrases.
There are many self-study language kits you can buy. Alternatively why not look for a tutor in your local area. When I learnt Mandarin Chinese I found it much easier to learn from a real life teacher.
Like Mandarin Chinese, Thai is also a tonal language and pronunciation is critical. So you’ll likewise benefit from learning Thai from a real person.
Why struggle with trying to chat to Thai women on a dating site? I’ve been there, done that, and it can be a hell of a frustrating experience!
So why not use an introduction agency like Thai Silk or Thai Professional? All you need to do then is look at the women on their website, shortlist some you want to meet in person, then book your trip to Thailand. Once you’ve in Bangkok they’ll supply you with a human translator for your first meeting with a Thai woman.
So those are some of the ways round the language barrier associated with finding a Thai bride.
