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

This is a native Bulgarian's guide to language specifics and a concise review of everything you need to know at the beginning of your Bulgarian language journey  

Bulgarian is a Slavic language and is very different from English, or from any non-Slavic language. It is spoken mainly in Bulgaria, and also in neighboring Greece, Turkey, Serbia and Romania.
