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 exemple, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day. And 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.
