Learn Bulgarian in just 10 lessons!

Teach Yourself Bulgarian Conversation shows you how easy it can be to pick up a new language. It encourages you to speak out loud from the very start. The audio program features 10 topics that include 15 key words, three useful phrases, and one grammar point. Two sample conversations bring all those elements together correctly. There are plenty of review opportunities, so you can gauge your progress and reinforce what you have learned.

In addition, the third CD provides invaluable guidance on holding two-way conversations, addressing such issues as speaking with people who talk very fast or use words and phrases you do not know.

Includes three 60-minute audio CDs

  • I enjoy the Pimsleur series -- I found that it didn't take long to go from starting the Pimsleur Japanese audiobook to being able to pick up things from subtitled Japanese shows on Netflix. Hey, I understood some of these words!

    Pimsleur doesn't currently have a Bulgarian (why! they have literally every surrounding country...) and I did not find this audiobook to be nearly as approachable. I feel like it would help if I already had some basic Bulgarian, but not as a pure beginner.

    It starts off by basically throwing a conversation at you, entirely in Bulgarian, with almost no explanation -- that comes a little later. In each case, we would get to the "now you can try it" section and in each case I'd be like, "No I can't!", with no clue how to respond. I don't feel like the speech is slow enough or enunciated clearly enough. You really need a "10 second rewind" button on your audio player because nothing gets repeated and in many cases I couldn't make out the enunciation of a rapidly-said word well enough to be sure how to repeat it, even after several listens.

    I guess the idea is they are going to throw you into Bulgarian "as you would really hear it said" but I still would like the words stated clearly and slowly once so that I have a grasp of how to repeat it back.

    There's really not a lot of choice out there for learning Bulgarian but the bottom line is that this audiobook is probably not the best place to start and probably won't get you where you hoped to be as a total newcomer to the language.

  • I am a huge fan of Pimsleur language courses, but this rather different approach is extremely engaging. Like Pimsleur it is very much audio oriented although there is a written booklet with it.

    The speaker is engaging, and the lessons move very fast. To make the CDs more compact, they often tell you to go back and replay some parts if you think you should. Pimsleur would just repeat the part on the CD if they think you should hear it again.

    As advertised, it is a course on conversation and not on survival as a traveler. I don't think they ever tell you how to say "I am an American," or how to say you need to find someone who speaks English. Fair enough, phrasebooks will tell you those things. This course does cover many travel skills by the end. But it embeds them in a basic conversational context.

    In general this approach expects you to make a lot of decisions yourself about how to absorb the material. The advantage is shorter CDs and maybe more control, the disadvantage if this is your first foreign language is that you must be a good judge of whether or not you have gotten what you need out of a given lesson.

    They explain more points of grammar than Pimsleur would, and they give some extremely nice pointers in the second part of the course about how to hear Bulgarian as it is actually spoken, with dropped sounds and words blended together.

    Overall it is more demanding than Pimsleur, and faster, and relies more on your ability to guide yourself. Pimsleur is great. But I'm not sure they offer Bulgarian. Kovatcheva and Holman's approach may just be greater -- of course a lot will depend on you!

  • I picked up this set of cds this summer before my 3rd trip to Bulgaria. I'd been using the longer Teach Yourself cds and coursebook off and on for the past two years, so I got this program to have something different to listen to and for my husband to use. After the first two conversations which are painfully slow and repetitive, the conversations pick up speed and complexity very fast. I didn't like how they started to throw in conversation without explanation or anything in the accompanying book. (The book only goes through the fist cd's conversations and lists everything phonetically-no Cyrillic) I know the theory is that you will absorb meaning, but I would have preferred to have new words listed somewhere.

    I would have been lost had I not already had some Bulgarian, so that's why I gave this three stars and suggest that you use it to accompany some other learning tools.

  • I bought this to listen to the Bulgarian language while I was driving, to keep it fresh. It's a little too easy for me, but it's a pretty good beginner course. It's meant to be listened to multiple times. The booklet is not in cyrillic, which is good for beginner pronunciation, but doesn't help with reading. The little chimes at the beginning of each track are extremely annoying.

  • these cd's are a must have especially if you do not have access to a native speaker. I speak Russian and thought the pronunciation would be close; it's not. The cd's make very clear the vagaries of the Bulgarian language. The lessons are a bit slow but it's worth it. These cd's go well together with the book Teach Yourself Bulgarin which you can find on Amazon for an inexpensive price.The booklet included with the CD's do not use the Cyrillic alphabet for the Bulgarian words. They are transliterated. That's why you have to buy the book too.

  • I really love this lesson plan for basic conversation. But it is way too short and only covers a tiny vocabulary. There is no way this is enough to have a real conversation. Each conversation is only about 10 lines long. Seems like something you could use to come face to face with someone say a few lines and then goodbye.

    It is very much a good beginner's guide to see if you can learn Bulgarian, but I was left needing much more.

  • 1 All conversations are in British English.
    2 There is a kind of annoying music between the all chapters. I don't even recognize it like Bulgarian ether.
    3 I detected one grammar mistake in Bulgarian.There can be even more.
    4 I feel like I over payed for it.

  • it is a good book...
