Yeah
The gist is that 34 is too old right?

By Chinse standard, 34 is too old for marriage; below 30 is most desirable, hence man Chinese parents hurrty their daughters to tie the knot before 30, and their anxiety grows as their daughters edge closer to that magical age, they go to parks to pin up their daughters' CVs to look  for a mate!

Don't you bother to learn Chinese?

Learning Mandarin requires intelligence, tenacity and a lot of hard work. It's too difficult for some people.

34 year old woman
1st class masters degree from the UK

The old aunties and uncles gave her grief over her age (34).  

In China many traditional grandparents and parents expect their children married by their mid 20s or so.  After that you become a "left over woman" or guy.  Marriage chances for the over 30s are greatly reduced, unless you are prepared to marry a divorcee. Many divorced 30 something women come with a child which does not sit well with traditional grandparents.  In modern China some 60% of women are still virgins on their wedding day, though this figure is changing from year to year.

There's a lot more to the scenario but that's enough to give you a better understanding of the woman and her predicament.
