Features independent study of the Bulgarian language
A basic vocabulary of the Bulgarian language is close and intuitive Russian-speaking person. In addition, Russian and Bulgarian languages have a similar structure. Therefore, already from the first class, you will simply begin independent reading, learn new words and fulfill grammar exercises. But this simplicity is rather deceptive, since all its similarity with the Russian, the Bulgarian language still has serious differences. Grammar of the Bulgarian language is fundamentally different from the grammar basics of the Russian language. Accordingly, in order to learn the Bulgarian language and to acquire necessary skills for speaking practice, you will not only learn words, but also to work seriously on grammatical rules.
When reading and learning new words in Bulgarian language, always use a dictionary. The meaning of the word may seem straightforward, but it can be quite. For example, the word "right" in Bulgarian means "straight".
In addition, you have to be attentive to pronunciation. The Bulgarian language is active articulation (the sounds in it are pronounced more clearly than in Russian), with accents in words are virtually the same with the accents in the Russian language. So in addition to the text training material, you will definitely need lessons: exercises, listen carefully to the speaker and repeat after him, trying to delve into the subtleties of pronunciation. By the way, in different cities of Bulgaria speak slightly different from each other dialects. So, in the South-Western part of the country spoken Macedonian dialect, and his struggle to understand even other Bulgarians.
Of course, to learn to speak the Bulgarian language using only textbooks and audio courses is almost impossible. For training speaking skills you will need to find native speakers with whom you can communicate via the Internet. They can be found on specialized websites and forums dedicated to the study of languages.
