Nik is a little more shy than Mounia, but I’ll see what I can do!

Hi Nik,
perhaps you could introduce yourself and the equivalent of your name if there is a lesson dealing with names in the future.


Miguel (Mijail?)

Hi Miguel!

Thank you for the interest and I’ll keep your suggestion in mind. In the meantime, here’s some more personal information: Nikolay is my given name and Simov is my last name. A better spelling of the Bulgarian equivalent of your name would be “Mihail.” Let’s see if this form supports the Cyrillic alphabet. Here’s your name: Михаил.

More about me: crazy about music performance, composition and production! Other passions: new media producer and instructor, personal development guide. I love reading too, currently enjoying “Eva Luna” by Isabel Allende based on a recommendation from my girlfriend.

Hope this answers your question but do let me know if I can help with anything else ;)

Thanks Nik,

I look forward to more lesons. I will travel to Plovdiv in July and I would like to speak as much as possible. Any advise on Plovdiv?

Nik (14:56:21) :

You are welcome, Miguel.

New episodes coming up!

Can you give me some more detail about what you want to know about Plovdiv?

In the meantime, you can explore these two links for general information:

Hi Nik,

I would like to get a printed or pdf guide to Plovdiv, in English (or Spanish) but I find none in Amazon. I asked for info at one of the Plovdiv tourist web sites and I got no reply at all.

Could you please help me with this?

Juat wanted to say that I am becoming a big fan of your teaching style. I have been to Bulgaria 4 times now, and i have fallen in love with your country. I married a Bulgarian woman from Velingrad who I met here in the USA. We live in California. I have been trying to learn from books…but you know how that goes. She just bought me this new Ipod Touch, and so I got hooked on the podcasts of your show. I love them and wanr to get all of them. There only seems to be 15 available so far.

Anyway, I am learning great from your lesons, and wanted to say blagodaria vi mnogo!

It’s fantastic that the lessons have made you happy, Bob!

Half of the credit for the program goes to the Survival Phrases folks who gave me high quality lesson templates to use as basic structures for my material.

Beware, if you wish to enroll in this course you should know that it stops at lesson 22. It has been like that for over one year (May 2009)

Just many thanks. We travel to Bulgaria as tourists for the first time in a couple of weeks to visit a friend in Yambol. So good to have at least a FEW phrases and hear them spoken by a native speaker - really appreciate this website!!

I just signed up for Bulgarian. How many lessons are there-on itunes I saw 22. Are there more than 22 or is 22 the total?

I’ve been considering purchasing a membership for this language, but some of the comments point out that there has not been any new material since 2008 and the lessons stop at #22. Is this accurate? Will there be more lessons in this series?
