    How to learn Bulgarian by yourself? Start with an easy and free online course!

    We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly: we suggest you to start by memorizing words, phrases and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
    Getting used to pronounce words out loud, numbers for instance, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day.
    It will help you to get used to the sounds of your chosen language and thus make it more familiar.
    And once your holidays have begun, in Sofia, Varna, Golden Sands or another city in Bulgaria, you will be surprised how familiar and easy to understand it will seem.
    Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It enables you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.

    Why speak Bulgarian while traveling?

    Looking for an original destination for your next holiday? Discover Bulgaria and be tempted by its landscapes and cultural delights! A surprising destination 
    If your goal is to have an exceptional break, why not Bulgaria and its diverse landscapes which offer something for the tourist all year round? Either on the shores of the Black Sea in places like Sunny Beach, Albena or Golden Sands, or in the ski resorts of the Pirin and Rila mountains, you would never be bored. After all, as well as all of its natural riches, the country also has a sumptuously rich cultural heritage of Slavic, Greek, Ottoman, Celtic and other influences. 
    This large number of peoples have left their mark on the country, which means that Bulgaria has a very large number of historical sites from different periods, including nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, namely: the Madara Rider, the Thracian tombs in Sveshtari and Kazanlak, Boyana Church, Rila Monastery, Ivanovo Rock Churches, Pirin National Park, Srebarna Nature Reserve and the ancient city of Nessebar.

    An economy on the move

    Bulgaria, a member of the European Union, NATO and the WTO, is an industrialized country whose main sources of growth are the energy, mining exploration, light industry and tourism sectors. In 2017, exports focused primarily on steel products, machinery, refined fuels and textiles. 

    Make a success of your stay in Bulgaria

    Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.

    How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?

    The official language of Bulgaria, also spoken in Bulgarian-speaking communities in Ukraine, Moldova, Greece and other neighboring countries, Bulgarian is written in the cyrillic alphabet with 30 letters. 
    Among the phenomena of the pronunciation of Bulgarian, is the vowel reduction where the same vowel will be pronounced differently according to the accentuation of the syllable it is in. In addition, the tonic accent of the language is mobile, varying from word to word.

    Thu :  Hi, I learn this because my best friend is from Bulgaria. I am looking for a full course that expands to the level of a bit abstract conversation instead of just stopping at some basic situations. Maybe talking about a guy, talking about a trip, a culture... Thank you a lot for this nice website.
    Mira :  hi there, i'm bulgarian! I just want to say that here is full with mistakes ... Hello it's not Добър ден dobăr den , hello is Zdravey, hi is Zdrasti, dobar den is Good afternoon Hello it's not добро утро dobro utro, Dobro utro is Good Morning... and so on ... Loecsen: the translations were done by a professional translator > https://www.linkedin.com/in/stefka-ivanova-0452a256/ We think you have not understood that this site is not a dictionary that provides literal translations, but offers context-related expressions. Therefore for example we specify that "добро утро [dobro utro]" is used only in the morning (= ok, it's "good morning" in English). What we try to provide as information is that from a given situation (for example here two people meet), there are several possible variants. We can certify 100% that the expressions found on our site in Bulgarian are correct.
    Sorab :  A great tool for beginners! My fiancé is Bulgarian and we're getting married there next year. Just want to learn some phrases to communicate with her family and friends. Really like this website. Thank you.
    Brendie :  As I live in the country and as mentioned in a previous comment, it is very hard to find English speakers in the country so it is essential to learn the language there. It is refreshing to find so many useful phrases and I look forward to improving my very weak Bulgarian. Thank you for making this available and easy to find.
    John Foley :  Hi, we are going to Bulgaria shortly to meet the parents of a young Bulgarian lady we helped with her education and is now employed in the financial sect. In England. It would be nice to be able to speak a few words in Bulgarian as they do not speak English. Your website is a great help.....Thanking You....John and Joan Foley Ireland.
