Course Description

Bulgarian language is considered a fairly difficult language to learn, mainly due to its complex grammar and typical Slavic pronunciation. As with anything unfamiliar, it looks hard at first, until you understand the logic behind the language and learn the first 100 words.

  • Detailed review of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and pronouns
  • 500+ words and expressions that you can use in everyday conversations
  • Variety of examples illustrating grammar principles in order to make them easier to grasp
  • Additional exercises for all topics with answers included
