  • I think it would be a fun experience to just go by body language instead of relying on spoken language. The date would just need to be planned as an activity that doesn't rely on a lot of talking.

  • I wouldn't mind that, it doesn't matter as long as we have a language in common that we can use to communicate, but would really appreciate it if she tries to learn my native language, also I would definitely try to learn her native language too.

  • If you can speak English well enough, then it's okay. It makes sense that people can't speak Hungarian if they aren't Hungarian.

    If you can't speak English nor Hungarian, then we cannot communicate.

    • Let's say she can speak English but not very well. Sometimes or often she doesn't get you and you don't get her.

    • I don't know about Hungarian but okay

    • I do. Learn English instead.

  • Its fine. Most of my extended family members are immigrants. A few don't have the best American English, so I am use to it. Also accents are neat

  • I have found more problems about comunication with people whose cultural level is lower than mine than with some people who don't speak my first language, then of course I will date a woman who cannot speak my first language very well

  • I dated a girl like this during high school.

    Our chemistry was actually off the charts rather quickly. And who knew that teaching someone completely inappropriate sentences in your language without telling her what they really mean could be so much fun?

  • It would probably be too difficult. That said, I tend to understand what people are trying to say with various accents fairly easily.

  • My language is too hard for foreigners too learn so it's fine, also I speak English very fluently so it doesn't matter as long as he can speak English as well!

    • What's your language and what if he doesn't speak English very well either?

  • Of course. I don't need him to speak Latvian at all, what matters to me is that he speaks English.

  • Doesn't matter. We may not have a serious relationship unless one of us or both of us begin to learn each other's languages. I imagine that would be quite an experience and may bond us together more than expected

  • Yes, I don't find if someone can't speak Spanish very well. As long as we can communicate in English, that's all that matters.

    • No you can communicate as long he knows some English or you first language. It just takes time. Assume that he does speak English but doesn't speak like a native speaker and sometimes doesn't understand you. Would you be okay with it or cannot stand it?

    • Hmm well in that case I don't know. I've never been in that position so yea I don't know.

  • Sure, but I would love if they at least tried to learn some basic Spanish. Mostly so he can communicate with my family better since they are really important to me as well.

  • Men would as long as she is hot
    as for me I speak two languages
    If they can understand my second language it's not a issue
    I'm currently talking to a guy who speaks with a Asian accent

    It's fine as long as the person has English that I can understand

    If not then it will not work
