Being A Native English Speaker Is More Valuable Than You Think

I’ve long advised men to learn a foreign language in order to increase their access to foreign women, but my recent experience in Russia reminded me how valuable it is to be a native English speaker in a world where English is the most desirable language to learn.

I moved to a small Siberian city with two goals in mind: (1) improve my Russian, and (2) sleep with beautiful women. I figured that both of these goals were perfectly aligned since the more beautiful the foreign girl, the less likely she will speak English, a phenomenon I’ve encountered in most countries I’ve been to. The one thing I didn’t expect is that Siberian girls in the 6 or 7 range would be void of English as well, meaning that I got to practice my Russian on over 90% of the girls I interacted with.

Because I was so motivated to learn Russian, something interesting happened: I lowered my standards on girls who spoke zero English. In other words, a girl I would have never considered in a place like Poland or Scandinavia, where English is common, was suddenly a worthy prospect in Siberia simply because practicing Russian brought great value to me. Even if I failed in my pursuit of her I would still get the language practice out of it. I went on dates just as hungry to speak the language as to get sex, meaning that even rejection came with its own reward.

Now it’s important to state I don’t need to actually learn Russian. It’s a hobby that will not increase my income and maybe only marginally increase my love life if you account for the hundreds of hours I must spend mastering it, but pretend you’re a foreign girl for a second. English is much more important to you from a survival standpoint to increase your employment prospects. It’s also important if you want to travel just about anywhere in the world. Do you now think that she would lower her standards to date a man who speaks English just so that she can get to practice this important language? Of course she would.

Let’s put this realization in clear terms: I have banged many girls who wouldn’t have banged me had I been from their own country. Many probably felt just neutral about me, maybe only slightly attracted, but decided that at least she would get to improve her English, so she spread her legs when the time came. Relationships of mine that ended suddenly could have been because she got bored of practicing and desired to speak her native language again.

Strong attraction is when when a foreign girl hates English and doesn’t speak it but decides to bang me, even if my grasp of her language is on the level of a six-year-old child. The catch is she will definitely be less beautiful than a girl who wants to learn English since I provide less overall value to her. This is actually what I have seen in Ukraine, where the girls I banged using Russian only were less attractive overall than the girls I banged using English (though not by much).

I’m afraid that I have inadvertently provided an argument for not learning a new language, because even when you become proficient in one, it may not be enough to get higher quality than if you use English alone. Of course there are clear exceptions (especially in Latin America), but we can’t be absolutely certain of a substantially higher sexual payoff.

The reason the phrase “English groupie” exists is because this language has so much value that a girl will fuck you just to practice it. My recommendation to you is to bang some English groupies of a foreign country first before committing yourself to learning its language. Unless you encounter many situations where you think, “Damn, if I knew this language I could have spoken to that pretty girl,” it won’t be worth it for you. Only when you can definitively conclude that an increase in language ability will broaden your romantic options should you dive in for real.

I wonder how many men here actually take up the challenge to live abroad? If i hadn’t been forced to do it, i would never have done it. Yet, now i know the truth, for i’ve been lied to all my life at how we have the best stuff in the west. Mabye that was true in the past, but now the best stuff and women are abroad.

Also, I wish i had spent more time on going to foreign countries for foreign women when younger. Its time to experience EE now, as the western corruption of society is gathering full pace. The culture and the women are still much better abroad though. Go now, before circumstances mean that you cannot go any more, or the women have become thoroughly westernized through and through.

Last of all, we live in an interconnected world now, for better or worse. Being a native English speaker to teach others gives you opportunities now, but for how much longer? 10 years, 20 perhaps? The west is going down and from the hardened PUA to the Godly man, you have to accept our future is tough and part of that means that you have to expand your skillset. I have always been amazed at how western citizens usually speak only one language, compared to many/most Europeans and those abroad. Learning another language opens your mind, and gives you more opportunitities with women and WORK (y’know, to suceed and survive). Because we have been manipulated into a convenient life, by previous generations, and now we are competing against others with more skills. For example, in many parts of the US, you will not get hired unless younare bilingual in Spanish and English. The easy era of welfarism is coming to an end, and if you are a working younger man, you will not have the opportunities to travel, meet women and make money like older generations (granted they are getting screwed too, but they had the opportunity to forge a differernt world, an opportunity which we dont have as we are mired in shit and dent and have to look after and pay for too many oldies who have fucked us and themselves).

“The west is going down and from the hardened PUA to the Godly man”

Intriguing remark but what do you mean by Godly man?

Plus your comment about limited opportunities may only apply to men who marry today. I would assume if one lives very frugally and doesn’t buy into the whole consumerism way of life he may be ok. But as you are aware that the culture pushes for all of this – the macmansion, cars, shit one does not need, et al. So he has to really be strong and scrape that hype off of his shoe if he is to survive and maybe get ahead a little.

Aren’t we just dicking around here, reporting on a societal downfall that is inevitable, yet still has some time before it occurs? The future you describe sounds rosy IMHO – forums exclude extreme comments in their PC ness, so the argument can reach a predefined conclusion as set by the financial elite and their think tanks. Its called externalizing the hierarchy, where they get all the groups to moan and gripe, yet accept their grim future, thereby politically neutralising them. Is this downfall going to change – highly unlikely, and no one, especially in western nations, is going to escape this coming reality.

We dont need a sudden economic collapse. The slow grinding down of society through a thousand paper cuts is enough. A guy may find he cannot oay his bills and gets homeless – this is the end of the west for him, in a country where well paid work was once readily availible etc..

Western nations taxes have been used to kill many arabs abroad, destroying christianity in the process in those nations; and we also see mass self-genocide through EXCESSIVE abortions and social policies like mass divorce and welfarism designednto disenfranchise males and white males – a genocide bynproxy of you will.

Some people moan, but most go on as if everything is normal. One day they will tell us its normal to be a disposable slave and the youth will buy it, for it will be all that they have ever known. Does the future look bright for western peoples, whatever their origins? Heck, people even backstab each other, despite being from the same race! The kinsmanship that was there in the past just doesn’t exist. Its everyman for himself and you sell your soul for just one last day in this coming version of hell on earth.

Human beings were never meant to live as we do in western decadent society. We have good stuff, but it is used against us in bad ways, like NSA spying. In fact,mthe bankers who run the society are avowed satanists, and no matter even if you believe this statement to be ridiculous, they certainly act like it. They and their master should be denied friendship, yet all people do is compain or ignore how their taxes are used to enslave others, themselves and their own kids. It makes you wonder about the free will of these zombies, and whether they deserve what is coming for being sent such false delusion as to believe a lie.

Fair enough points.

There is no mass solution. Too many people are too reliant on a false paradigm. Solutions have to be individualised. I don’t expect uk/us/israel/canada/ireland and western europe/scandinavia to survive the next 50 years. There will be massive domestic unrest, foreign wars, economic warfare and lack of resources. This will lead to a loss of ninety percent of the population plus. The leaders are wicked and populations blindly follow the social and economic hierarchies designed to destroy them. Other places may suffer, but they will prevail IMHO.

I don’t know what you mean by the “easy era”, but I don’t agree that opportunities for young men will be worse. Our parents couldn’t have dreamed of today’s technology when they were young, now you can work from anywhere in the world from a laptop. I think even men who only know English can do very well in foreign countries if they have drive and creativity.

Though the west is in decline, I don’t see anything close that could replace it globally. Western music, movies, books, English and all kinds of other media, will be the dominating cultural influence for a long time. I agree that expanding your skill set is a must, but the future is only going to be as “tough” as you make it. Simply being a native English speaker is a valuable skill set that can be used to make money through teaching in schools or privately. I’m confident that English is by far the most desirable language to learn worldwide. The question is how many men will take up that challenge to travel and find the best opportunities, versus staying near where they grew up and grinding through a 9 to 5 for 40 years.

Yes, you most definitely can work from anywhere in the world from a laptop, but you still need to be able to provide a true skill/service/product for which you will be adequately remunerated on a regular basis in order to live in comfort. Many have been able to arbitrage first-world incomes with second and third-world level prices thus far in order to effectively “cheat” the system and live like kings, but how long will that really last would you venture to guess? The H-1B visa phenomenon in the U.S. is just one of the many examples in which concerted attempts are now being made at increasing the number of highly-skilled workers for what used to be a very specialized, high-paying and reasonably stable profession (IT), in order to drive down wages globally and force professionals everywhere to accept progressively lower and lower living standards. How long before the same phenomenon fully touches engineering, medicine, law, finance, and all the other traditionally highly-paid, stable, and prestigious fields as well? Don’t get me wrong, inflating personnel by issuing out all these visas is not, in and of itself, sufficient to automatically increase the pool of genuine QUALITY candidates all on its own, but if this does not scream of “union-breaking” practices at the higher tiers of the now truly global economy, then I don’t know what does.

I am not saying that you should stay in the West and not explore the world and exploit all possibilities along the way to increase your quality of life – not at all – but beware that your newly-found paradise may indeed end up having a deep, dark, well-hidden underbelly to the point that it may sometimes take upwards of a year or two of really living there full-on for it to really begin to surface. I’m sure that’s not the case with you Nick as you appear to have done your homework well and we both know that Poland is not exactly Guatemala, but I have heard of more than my fare share of horror stories where starry-eyed expats to some magical kingdom where easily accessible beautifully youthful women roam the streets everywhere and all of the problems of the west simply don’t exist have eventually had to pack their bags and escape in a hurry as their unconventional source of income of which they were so proud of suddenly dried up, their cash reserves ran dry, and they discovered to their dismay that the locals were not really that interested in seeing them fully integrate and become a true part of their happy, joyful, merry community all along.

Just my 2 cents here. In any event, good luck to you all and keep us posted!

Good points here. I think the advantage a location-independent worker has is his ability to adapt to the changing market. Of course providing value is a foundation, but I think the opportunities to provide value (and the vehicles for doing so) are great in today’s world, as long as one is willing to change when necessary. A career-tracked physician or engineer will have a tough time regrouping if his livelihood is eaten out from under him by H1-B imports and/or stifling government regulations. I think the advantageous situation for the self-employed will last indefinitely, though some relocation may be required as government become hostile to immigrants (Victor Pride recently retweeted an article about this happening in Thailand where he resides), and as the IRS and its counterparts try to milk people for “revenue”. The book “Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder” comes to mind.

There are downsides to living outside of the U.S. certainly. Medical care is not as good in many places (though it’s arguably better in some countries, though expensive). Some products are much more expensive or unavailable and the mentality of the people can be a burden, when compared to the positive attitudes you may have been used to. All in all I think many thousands of men would do well to try their hand at living abroad, if only for a month.

Interesting. Most english/spanish groupies I run into seem to be of below-average beauty within their country. Having a language barrier can be a huge problem specially in places like the FSU where most people don’t speak english at all, so I’d say learning russian should massively increase your opportunities.

Learning languages as an adult is a tough trade-off as the 1,000 hours or so required to learn could be used to generate income or learn a skill, etc. that would allow you to get a nice return. Learning english provides a huge financial incentive for those learning it as a second language…for english speakers, there is rarely a financial incentive which is probably why so few bother…it´s a great accomplishment but i think in most women´s eyes, they´d rather just some guy who can crank out money as opposed to one spending endless hours mastering a new language with no economic aim.

Many who do it at an advance age do it to keep from going crazy. A friend of mine before he worked on building a 500k/yr biz used to study Mandarin Chinese to get away from his wife and romanticize over all his years of martial arts training.

When it you put it like that 1000hrs man for a lousy culture who isn’t shit economically or military if the Earth were all like mad marauder Viking tribes just trying to genicide each other (no I don’t mean the Chinese them and the Germans would kick alot of ass in a World under those parameters) then it makes me sense to just use that time to learn how to get to that universal communication method- money.

Yeah I hear ya. It would seem that the places with the overall better quality females are places of limited economic growth, whereas places on the globe where one can grow a business (Canada, the USA) have shit females. So it seems a matter of time balance; you tell yourself you wont interact with the natives nor date any of the women in the country you are growing your business for the next say 9 months. The other months you spend your time in another country of desirable females.

Given the direction the way things are heading socially in the usa and east europe, south america, and any remaining havens that globalization has not yet contaminated but will, i think language barriers dont matter. Because it all comes down to resources. Thats all that women want and what motivates them. How many english speaking only rich and famous go to europe or other places on the globe, and dont speak one lick of another language, yet have no trouble getting with the local super model grade females of the countries they visit?

For the expat man, all bullshit aside, it might come to the point where nothing matters except moola.

Encountered briefly in China. Will investigate Japan. I like girls from these places, but taking on new languages is not a light decision. And at this point in my life I can’t live in those places at length.

Jesus fucking Christ, if it took you this long to realize that women have been using you for economic gain via language practice, how long will it take red pill men to realize that the attention they get from higher quality women in developing countries and conflict zones is because they want to exploit you economically for a green card, a blue passport, or your other western country equivalent. But wait – that’s it for red pill men – you don’t give a shit about whether there is actual love or affection based on mutual interests or attraction or happiness simply being together. It’s all transactional for you anyway. You’re upset that women are no longer forced to endure physical/mental/emotional abuse, or at the very minimum, shitty behavior, for economic security in most western countries. You’re upset that you no longer get a trophy just for showing up with a penis. So now you move on to places where you get a trophy just for showing up with a blue passport. I don’t begrudge women in these countries for using you – do what you gotta do to get ahead in life, for you and your children. But I do pity red pill men for having given up on having a genuine connection with a woman. I feel sorry for you that you’ve decided that women function on a wholly lower level than men do.

It must be lonely. Really fucking lonely. There is no better feeling in the world than the rush of having made a connection with someone you’re attracted to physically, emotionally, and mentally. There is no greater comfort than knowing that you can truly trust your partner long-term because you’ve been transparent instead of pretending to be someone else in order to get laid faster and more often.

You might work hard to improve your physical appearance, expand your personal knowledge and abilities, and increase your economic flexibility, but you’re doing goddamn nothing to acknowledge that your emotions are okay to experience and share, and accept that you can’t control other humans on a level playing field.

Leveraging red pill male entitlement as a means of development. Get it, ladies.

“Creepy” is the best description I could think of. We should not let snarky American women (or anyone else for that matter) misappropriate ordinary English words. It is meant to convey the mild feeling of revulsion that I feel when Roosh boasts of travelling to the most out of the way godforsaken places to have casual sex with girls who probably view him as a ticket out of their miserable circumstances. How does that make him a better man? What of the damage he inflicts on those girls, let alone the psychic and spiritual damage he does to himself? Don’t get me wrong- I’m all for banging young attractive girls. I do it on a level playing field. No white knight here, I can assure you.

Am I the only one who sees the contradiction between, on the one hand, complaining about soulless self-centered Western women,and on the other hand, pumping and dumping the most marginalized girls who just want a chance at happiness?

Unless you are promising them a way out of their “shit hole”, in return for sex, than you know what? Fuck them.. literally, and metaphorically. They get to enjoy quality time with an American, and by doing so, looking cool to their friends, feeling special, and probably eating/drinking tasty things. You sound like a pussy when you talk like that.. It makes you sound like you secretly crave cock. I bet you are a female as Tyko pointed out.. If their complete happiness is riding on some random American guy they don’t even know, I think they have bigger problems to worry about than me getting my nut off.. There is no “level playing field”.. This isn’t old school British duels.. I’m not going to take my glove off and slap you across the face.. I’m going to take the glove off my dick, and bareback those Slavic hoes.. This is war.. No rules.. no morals, no fucking regrets.. If you have a conscience, it’s just setting you back from obtaining even more pussy. You really think those girls give a shit about you? All you are is a possibility of a way out.. They see you as a big fat Green Card/Visa/Passport/ATM walking around.. They have a currency.. It’s called pussy.. and We have a currency.. It’s called citizenship in ‘Murica..

Roosh-
Like how you said screw Twitter. I think in that vein of thinking you should challenge readers to do at least 5 approaches/week.

Even go as far as to say don’t comment and go read some Huffington Post or Jezebel if you aren’t doing your weekly approaches.

Ive been on the blogs all week and haven’t approached-what a waste. Today had lunch and saw a fine blue eyed Cuban girl I want to smash-but I bitched out. Not healthy. The lifeblood of game is approaching-overcoming fear in the field is King.

Last night I was arguing on a blog from my Spookphone and from the car saw like 8 teenage 8s over a 30 min. time frame which would normally take 4 hours of walking around in day game (I don’t live in Miami, Moscow, or LA so that’s the truth there it would be 45 minutes to see 8 8of10 level teens and early 20s girls) to see that many. It was a sign man.

I think you should definitely consider learning a second language, especially if you are young and are ready and willing to live abroad. As an American, despite my relative dislike of my fellow countrymen, we are definitely the most competitive and motivated people on this planet. Take advantage of that! For example, I got a position here in Russia as a real estate asset manager for a huge company trying to move into the European real estate market with out a European or American. I have no experience in real estate sales or investment management. But I am an American who can work in Russian and English. The trade off is take a guy with ten years experience from the States for $200,000 a year who can’t speak Russian or me for $70,000? I can get to $200,000 much faster here as an American than at home and the only reason that opportunity is possible is because I taught myself Russian. I’m 25 and taking a job my friends at home dream of.

From what I gather if a guy made 3-4k/month he could marry a woman and raise a family in a good Catholic or Orthodox environement- focus on loving his wife, kids, and God sounds like a more positive life than the mass consumerism, feminist, toxic West.
