I have a friend who will be going for a short time to Dnipetrovsk (Dnepr) and asked me if I had any contacts there of people he might meet up with. He is a medical doctor from Philadelphia but lives now in Bangkok. Does anyone maintained any friends there from their travels who speak English and might be interested in going out with my friend socially? I would greatly appreciate it if you did! Reply to this

I am based in Kyiv rather than Dnipropetrovsk. Ukrainians do speak English (some of them superbly - I worked there as a proofreader), and with it being a university town there are bound to be students there who will help your friend to find his way around.

Be very careful at night, and avoid the thousands of ghastly dating agencies if you decide to look for someone on the internet.

I’m also based in Kiev and talking about majority of people. Big numbers of adults use to study German at school. In this days English is most common subject in university. That’s true. More people speak English but in my opinion, it’s not enough. Reply to this

Oh please. In kiev people do speak a little bit of English, that’s true. But do you recon it’s the same situation in the whole Ukraine or even in Dnipropetrovsk (look at the origin question). I doubt it. Reply to this

It seems to me that a big problem of small cities in Ukraine is bad school education (as result - bad English knowledge). In large cities as Kiev, Dnepr, Odessa and others much more people can help english-speaking traveller. Such situation was formed because of possibility of usage English (person from small Ukrainian city has a minimal chance to meet a foreigner or find a job that requires knowledge of language).
