Instructor: Kiril Havezov
The class for adults is designed for English speakers who want to study the Bulgarian language. In class, work emphasizes both the grammar and the practical application of the language in everyday conversational situations. We work with a textbook for English speakers, which allows additional independent work. The main emphasis in this class is quality, not quantity of lessons. The pace of learning is entirely commensurate with the students being able to reflect on and adopt new knowledge. Although the class is attended primarily by people who are married to Bulgarians, led by the desire to learn the language of their partners, the lessons are suitable for people who just want to learn a new language. The Bulgarian language is the oldest written Slavic language; works of Bulgarian language were written in the late ninth century. The learning of Bulgarian is a unique opportunity not only to get acquainted with a new language, but also to learn about the culture, history and customs of Bulgaria, the oldest European country which has retained its name until today.
