Some Brief Information About Bulgaria And Bulgarian

Before you learn to speak Bulgarian, I thought I would give you a few key defining features of Bulgaria and Bulgarian history.

The country once had its own Bulgarian empire. The first Bulgarian empire dates back to the 11th century, the second Bulgarian empire to the twelfth century, and both were largely buoyed by the Bulgarian orthodox church. Before that, the region was inhabited by numerous Slavic tribes.

Bulgaria was absorbed by the Ottoman empire and didn’t become an official Bulgarian state until the late 19th century. World war ii also saw a massive change in the region.

Which Countries Does The Republic Of Bulgaria Have A Good Relationship With?

You can tell a lot about a country by the kinds of diplomatic relationships it has. The first thing to say is that Bulgaria is a member of NATO and the EU, which means it is much more western aligned than some other countries in Eastern Europe.

In total, it maintains official relations with 181 countries; however, countries that are particularly friendly with it are Greece and Romania. It also has positive relationships with Macedonia and Serbia.

Which Countries Does Bulgaria Have A Bad Relationship With?

In recent years there have been problems between Russia and Bulgaria as well as more general problems on the entire Balkan peninsula. As we previously mentioned, Bulgaria is part of NATO, which competes directly with Russia. In 2021 it was revealed that a number of Russian spies had infiltrated the Bulgarian government. This caused panic in NATO because Bulgaria was perceived as a ‘weak link’ in the alliance. If a pro-Russian president were to get into power, it could cause big ramifications.

Give Ling A Try To Learn The Bulgarian Language

In writing this article, I’ve had contact with people all over Asia, including a Chinese person, a Vietnamese person, and a Japanese person. They all have a diverse range of reasons for wanting to learn Bulgarian, but each time I tell them to go with Ling.

By now, you’ve probably come across other language learning apps. Perhaps you used Duolingo to learn English or Rosetta Stone to learn Spanish. For that reason, I won’t bore you too much with the details of what the app can do. Ling does many of the same things (we like to think a little better), including SRS flashcards, listening practice, speaking practice, grammar basics and learning the Bulgarian alphabet. However, as I said at the beginning, what sets Ling apart is the sheer amount of languages that are delivered in such a sleek and easily accessible package.

Needless to say, all of our content was designed and then vetted by native Bulgarian speakers. That means no errors, and as far as the listening is concerned, you will have a native Bulgarian accent.

Let us know what you think of the blog. This Bulgarian section is relatively new, and we’ve yet to receive much feedback. If you like it, then we’ll do more! We hope to turn this blog into somewhat of a Bulgarian embassy for language where Bulgarian students can get all of their Bulgarian news.

That’s all for now. Here’s where you’ll find a link to download the app. Thanks for reading
