Здравей! I've recently applied for an English course for Bulgarian speakers in the incubator. Does anyone know any Bulgarian? Let me know if you do! I'm hoping that this course does eventually make it into the incubator. Also, does anyone have an interest in learning Bulgarian? Thank you in advance.

July 3, 2014


I am a native Bulgarian speaker, so I'll be glad to participate. I've already sent my application months ago, but there wasn't any development. I hope we can start the course as soon as possible. Please inform me if there is any possibility for us to make the course. I'll help as much as I can.

July 4, 2014

Мисля че за да започнат изготвянето на курс е необходимо да съберат определен брой добри кандидати. Да се надяваме, че сега, когато аз и Иля кандидатствахме, ще се раздвижат нещата ;)

July 4, 2014

I've just re-send my application form. I really hope we all will be invited to start making the course soon.

July 4, 2014

I had also sent my application in a few months ago as a contributor (not administrator or whatever the higher level is). Native bulgarian speaker with almost 20 years living in the US here. I'll be very excited to help once the course is up! Plus we have to do English for bulgarian speakers first to do bulgarian for English - I know my wife who is originally from the USA can't wait for that one!

July 4, 2014

Дано се появят повече кандидати като теб, vvkrastev! =)

December 10, 2016

As far as I know in order to initiate a course they need at least a few applicants who volunteer to be also modulators. I volunteered, so if any of the other people did that as well, perhaps now they have enough qualified applicants ;)

July 4, 2014

Wow! I'm so glad we already have so many people willing to help with the course!

July 4, 2014

Преди си мислех, че няма много хора, които са готови да допринесат за курса, но сега виждам, че има. Аз също от известно време кандидатствам, но за сега няма ефект.

February 21, 2016

A few days ago I applied to contribute, too. Now that I see this post from 3 years ago, there are perhaps at least ten people who applied, and still it hasn't even started, I don't see how it would even start.

October 26, 2017

Интиресно, от какво зависи да одобрят започването на курс. Знам доста хора, които са кандидатствали. Определен брой кандидати със сигурност, при това квалифицирани... може би...

December 10, 2016

Ihope theystart this soon!!

September 21, 2016

I know Bulgarian and I'd love to help you.

July 14, 2015

Zdrasti - I am very interested in participating both in the creation and learning of the Bulgarian language. I have been learning Bulgarian on my own for about a year. Sadly, I am not at the fluency level of my satisfaction. I travel to Bulgaria every year with my Bulgarian wife and would like to see this course come to fruition. What is missing to get this course started?

August 29, 2015

I have no idea. I know many people have made applications to contribute to a Bulgarian course but for some reason it has not made it to the incubator.... so your guess is as good as mine.

August 29, 2015

I would like to volunteer to make a Bulgarian course for English speakers and vice versa. I am native Bulgarian and fluent in English. How can I apply?

January 27, 2016

I'm interested in contributing. I'm Bulgarian. Благодаря

October 21, 2014

Have you applied in the incubator? I did so, but I see so many posts from other bulgarians who said they did, too, but I see absolutely no progress in the course.

October 26, 2017

Здрасти и от мен! Recently I also sent an application - both for an English course for Bulgarians, and a Bulgarian course for English speakers. Once I brush up on my Spanish, I might also apply for a Bulgarian course for Spanish speakers and Spanish for Bulgarians.

September 10, 2015

Bulgarian is cool. As a native Croatian speaker, Bulgarian is one of the easiest Slavic languages to understand when spoken slowly.

To second Finnmark, I also think you should go with Bulgarian for English speakers first.

July 3, 2014

I knew a family that came to Sofia from Dalmatia. Nice people, and beautiful language. :)

July 3, 2014

That sounds really neat! I hope your course is accepted!

July 3, 2014

Здравейте!Аз съм българка и мога да помагам :)

September 28, 2015

HI! I am English and my girlfriend is Bulgarian. I would love to be able to talk to her and her family in their native tounge. I have accessed resources at my uni but the way duolingo teaches you is a bigood hit in my book. Please duolingo people hear our cries for help. Start a Bulgarian course for English speakers. Thanks.

August 27, 2015

Аз съм за и на драго сърце бих помогнал с курса/ I'm in and would gladly help you with the course.

January 23, 2016

I would be interested in learning it! :)

I had three Bulgarian roomies during a summer camp last year, and we discovered through careful (and totally scientific, of course :p) analysis that although a lot of vocabulary was shared between Bulgarian and my native Croatian, insults in particular, we couldn't understand each other when speaking normally, because we stress words differently to the point that the exact same thing can sound like something completely different when pronounced by the other person :o

Would be really cool to play around with it, and at least reach the point where the accenting wouldn't confuse me (so I could eavesdrop, hohoho).

July 3, 2014

I really want to learn Bulgarian because my boyfriend is a native speaker and I would love it!! I currently know how to count to 10 and Zdrasti lol

September 4, 2015

I'm a native Bulgarian speaker and I also speak English and Swedish fluently. I wrote to Duolingo about adding Bulgarian to the list with available language courses. I'd be more than happy to contribute and help create it. I did upvote this and many other topics/suggestions. I hope it helps so we can get started.

November 28, 2016

I want to learn Bulgaria

May 4, 2015

Hello! I would be more than happy to help with creating a course like that! Bulgarian is my native language and I'm sure I will be of great help translating!!!

September 12, 2015

Здравей!I am from Bulgaria and i think it gonna be great to have bulgarian leanguage for learning! here take some lingots

September 14, 2015

Hey I'm also Bulgarian and I want to help.

October 9, 2015

Дайте да се обединим с искането за инкубиране, тук има група за лесна комуникация:

June 2, 2016

kalta Става ли това да го направим в друга група която да не е в facebook?

June 2, 2016

Mоже някои хора да нямат facebook.

June 2, 2016


June 3, 2016

Moже чрез Google.

June 3, 2016

Да, едно време групите бяха доста удобни. И google plus напредна, но още няма толкова потребители, колкото fb. Да тръгне нещо по-целенасочено, и двете са integrated services, тъй че платформата е малък въпрос

June 4, 2016

Аз съм за Гугъл Плюс, фейса от години го зарязах...

December 10, 2016

Yep, I would probably at least try out Bulgarian!

July 4, 2014

Yes, it will be perfect if there is Bulgarian also. I like foreign languages. I try to improve my Deutsch through English but my English is also not perfect & it's hard. I also want to learn Spanish & French. It would be much easier if there is Bulgarian language also.

August 5, 2014

Is there a Bulgarian course for English speakers?

May 26, 2015

We hope there is a chance, that a course will be approves any time very soon, thanks for asking.

December 10, 2016

Bumping this old discussion because I would love to learn Bulgarian and hope the Duolingo team sees people still taking interest!!

December 1, 2015

plz when can u make the english to bulgarian

January 18, 2016

I'd love to learn Bulgarian! I'm impatiently waiting for a new course lol.

February 13, 2016

I know Bulgarian. And i also applied for the same course.

February 21, 2016

I speak Bulgarian at an intermediate level and live in Bulgaria now. I am steadily getting better at it (tomorrow, I will restart classes, and those always help a good deal.)

Looking at your icon, I see that you also have a Romanian flag there; Romanian is my second language and I speak it fluently, so if you have any interest in that / desire to learn it, I could help you with it (time permitting.) I also see that a Romanian course (from English) will apparently be ready here fairly soon :-)

March 22, 2016

I'm a native Bulgarian speaker and I would participate in that!

May 6, 2016

I'm very interested in learning Bulgarian!

July 7, 2016

I added a feature request for a timetable in the incubator - - if you like it give it a vote up. I hope that if this one gets implemented into Duolingo incubator we will see an estimated date when courses with Bulgarian will start being worked on.

August 26, 2016

Hello! I'm from Bulgaria and I want to learn English better. English for Bulgarian speakers, please. Greetings from Bulgaria!!! И аз мога да ви помогна, ако е нужно.

September 6, 2016

Здравей, аз знам български, защото съм българка и живея в България. Бих искала да науча по-добре английски език. Аз го уча в училище, и имам шестици, но искам да го науча още по-добре. И много ще се радвам, ако има курс по английски език за българи. Благодаря Ви!

September 6, 2016

I am interested inlearning Bulgarian! None of the other programs I have purchased are as fun and engaging as the language lessons on duolingo

September 21, 2016

I really want a Bulgarian course!

October 26, 2016

I actually learn Bulgarian with a teacher on italki. It would be great if i could also learn Bulgarian with Duolingo. When can we start?

December 2, 2016

bonny37, "When can we start?" - This is a great question, I like your entusiasm! =)

December 10, 2016

I am so eager to have a bulgarian course for english speakers. I am native in spanish language. But i will take the bulgarian course in english.

February 14, 2017

Здравей! I'd love to have a Bulgarian course on Duolingo. I already keep working on it regularly using another app, but this is dodgy and I feel like I'm wasting quite some time (really slow progression)... definitively prefer the way Duolingo works. I'm unfortunately too far from fluency to be of any help at that stage.

March 7, 2017

What is the other app?

March 18, 2017

I would love to learn Bulgarian it sounds so pretty when spoken.

May 20, 2017

I have also applied to contribute! Hopefully Bulgarian will be incubated soon!

May 21, 2017

would love love LOVE to learn Bulgarian!! It's so difficult to find good courses elsewhere, would be awesome to have a course in Bulgarian for English speakers <3

May 31, 2017

I really wish there was a Bulgarian course for English speakers.

June 2, 2017

I hope this becomes a reality! Would be so helpful for me!

June 12, 2017

Здрасти! Нов съм тук на Дуолинго, така че въпросът ми може да прозвучи глупаво, но къде може човек да кандидатства за допринасянето към създаване на един курс? Много бих се радвал да видя Българския език тук и разбира се ако мога да съм полезен, за да стане това!

July 3, 2017

Принципно има линк в страницата на курса. Но имам чувството че автора му е или егоист или не си проверява кандидатурите с месеци. Понеже пуснах кандидатура преди месеци, и няма никакъв отговор до сега.

July 3, 2017

Hey there, just sent my application for the English course for Bulgarian speakers. I hope we make a good team and soon make it possible for Bulagrians to learn English in an interactive, easy and fun way :) I wouldn't mind building also a Bulgarian course for English speakers if there's interest of course ;)

July 3, 2014

A Bulgarian course would be great!

July 5, 2014

That sounds wonderful! Hopefully we can work together!

July 3, 2014

I'm in, guess English for Bulgarians is the first thing to do, next we can do Bulgarian for English-speakers ;-)

January 7, 2016

yes we would love to learn Bulgarian

June 2, 2017

I would be really keen to have a Bulgarian for English speakers course!

May 4, 2016

Здравей! :-) I actually know a little bit of Bulgarian. I learned how to read the Cyrillic alphabet thanks to this beautiful language. My native language is Spanish, but I have a book to learn Bulgarian from English, it is about some basic explanation of tenses, conjugations, and other simple things. I used to practice it a lot, but then I had not time and I kept reading some texts in Bulgarian, I always try to figure out where the stress of the word is, haha, but I really like it. Hopefully, Bulgarian for English speakers will be on Duolingo soon, I would really love it.

I am a Levski Sofia's fan, by the way. Само Левски!! :-)

July 3, 2014

You are a soccer team fan... wow, it's funny to see it =) I am more of a Joghurt-Cuisine-BlackSea-Fan!

December 10, 2016

Greetings from Bulgaria, my friend :)

April 11, 2018

Ю-ху! Go for it! :)

July 4, 2014

Yes! I would love to learn it! I have a friend whose native language is Bulgarian, so it would be really cool to talk with her.

July 4, 2014


August 3, 2014


After vising Bulgaria for a month I would love to know more! We have a good few Bulgarians living in England too so it would be nice to share some of the language :)

August 27, 2014

Definitely yes! I'm interested in learning Bulgarian!

January 10, 2015

Hello, I am highly interested in learning bulgarian. I hope it will be available in Duolingo soon !

June 6, 2015

I'd love to learn Bulgarian. Two of my close friends speak it fluently so it'd be awesome! Have a lingot as my thanks in advance!

August 27, 2015

Yes I am VERY interested in it! Especially basic communication for meeting new family!

January 4, 2016

This is the last language in my list of those I really want to learn to speak, and the only one not available on Duolingo. It seems like there is enough interest, and plenty of contributors who could make a fantastic course for us. Hopefully it will happen soon!

June 15, 2016

Any news since you suggested this a year ago?

July 2, 2016

Здравейте, и аз тъкмо пуснах в инкубатора :) От България съм, но живея и уча в Англия, бих искала да помогна за развитието на курса :)

July 11, 2016

Yes so much! I live in Bulgaria and my stduies are in english, so it is quite hard to learn bulgarian. Duolingo could be enormous help.

August 15, 2016

I am incredibly keen. Hope it comes soon :(

September 9, 2016

I would love to learn Bulgarian! Upvote :)

January 3, 2017

I'll cast a vote for Bulgarian! I've been waiting for a class for a while now.

January 11, 2017

I'm from Bulgaria and bulgarian is my born language Не знаех че толкова хора ще се интересуват от български! Аз съм от България и българският език ми е роден. Тук съм да уча японски и испански.Ще бъда много щастлива ако излезнат курсове.

February 4, 2018

What on earth is going on with this? It's been years since people first started asking for Bulgarian and as far as I can tell, there's been no traction at all.

April 11, 2018

3 years later, 1 year since I commented last, STILL no news about Bulgarian : (

April 11, 2018

heeey I want to learn bulgarian yes yesss bring itt!

April 10, 2019

In the forum there is now a guide for the people who wish new courses in Duolingo -

In this guide, there are links to topics with requests for specific courses. The idea is, for each desired course there to be a single leading topic, which should get all the support (including votes) for the course.

So, they selected the following topics as leading for the requested courses related to Bulgarian language:

So, if you want to support these courses, give your votes and/or comments in these 2 topics - there they will be most effective!

Във форума вече има ръководство за желаещите нови курсове в Duolingo -

В това ръководство има препратки към темите с искания за конкретни курсове. Целта е за всеки пожелан курс да има една водеща тема, в която да се събира цялата подкрепа (вкл. гласове) за курса.

Така, там са избрани следните теми за поисканите курсове свързани с българския език:

Така че, ако искате да подкрепите тези курсове, дайте своите гласове и/или коментари в тези 2 теми - там те ще са най-ефективни!

May 3, 2019

Bulgarian looks difficult...the conjugation tables are HUMONGOUS, and it has little similarity with West or East Slavic languages. WE NEED YOU.

Also, don't expect a reply soon - they'll only reply to you once they open English for Bulgarian, which could be monthes from now.

Also, go Bulgarian for English speakers first.

July 3, 2014

It's best to build the courses in the languages we have already, before adding a new one..

English for Bulgarian speakers is a better choice..

July 3, 2014

Thank you both for your support! I've studied linguistics, so I know a good amount of where Bulgarian fits in. It's a South Slavic language, just like Slovene, Macedonian, and the Serbo-Croatian languages. They have their similarities, but they can be very different at times. Bulgarian is strange, because unlike the other Slavic languages, we have articles, but they go at the end of our words, like in Romanian. I believe I could work on both courses, but since I work as a teacher in Montana, teaching English to Bulgarians would be easier as I have experience in that field.

July 3, 2014

Well, I suppose it would be better to build the course that you have experience in - but for once, it would be nice that English actually had something first rather than foreign-English.

July 3, 2014

No one said I couldn't do both. :)

July 3, 2014

They do: Irish, Dutch, Swedish, and Danish.

July 3, 2014

English for Dutch has already been complete, there are almost no (none?) Irish speakers who don't understand English, and Sweden and Denmark are one of the non-English countries that have the highest knowledge of English (I know for a fact that Sweden is no. 1).

July 3, 2014

Just pointing out a fact here, it's fine. ;)

July 3, 2014

All I know about Bulgarian is that my Russian profe many years ago would shout "Stop speaking Bulgarian!" if we said something like "Ia slushaiu moia sobaka". Anyway, the more the merrier, go for it!

July 5, 2014

I applied to be a contributor for a Bulgarian course on the first day the incubator was opened. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like that course will be featured soon. I hope I'm wrong.

August 18, 2014

I would be interested in learning Bulgarian! One of my best friends is from Bulgaria, and I try to make an attempt to learn the languages of my friends in order to show respect that they took the time to learn English. Although I seem to have terrible luck finding language courses on Duolingo to make that a reality ... the other language I am learning right now to show respect to a friend's first language is modern Hebrew, which also does not have a course despite demand for it.

August 19, 2014

Very cute of you! :)

August 19, 2014

Zdravejte! Tova e chudesna ideja...I az iskah da napravq bulgarski kurs za tezi koito govorqt azerbajdzhanski ) no oshte nqma nikakuv polozhitelen otgovor :)

August 26, 2014

Hello. I am a Bulgarian. I have the opposite problem. I need to improve my English starting from Bulgarian :-)

April 6, 2015

[deactivated user]

    I started to learn languages because of those ones latin-based. And now as an ukrainian I'd really love to learn some more Slavic languages like Bulagrian and Serbian. Good luck!

    July 7, 2015

    i know bulgarian

    July 12, 2015

    I'd LOVE to learn Bulgarian (for English speakers)

    July 22, 2015

    Privet, ne nishto ne znam na bulgarski ezik ;)

    October 3, 2015

    6-ти Клас Българин тук!

    October 8, 2015

    Уау супер, с напредвай с ученето на езици, приятелю, голямо богатство са! Успехи!!!

    December 10, 2016

    I am massively interested in learning, I have a Bulgarian partner and would love to talk to her in her mother tongue.

    October 15, 2015

    Same story, come on Duolingo! There have been a number of requests to get this up and running, and I can imagine there would be a lot of interest from partners of Bulgarians, such as ourselves, as well as expat-Bulgarian parents looking to teach children/family members etc. and lovers of Slavic languages.

    I have tried with different programmes for Bulgarian to no avail over the last few years, it's admittedly quite an impenetrable language for foreigners trying to learn from abroad. Without paying for private tuition, there simply aren't many easy to use/accessible resources for learning the language. I check these pages every month or so in case the incubator has included it in the new Phase 1 languages.

    Having said all this, I hope the recent addition of Russian-English (which will also have to grapple with the technicalities of incorporating the cyrillic script) will eventually lead to Bulgarian being accepted!

    October 22, 2015

    Само така!

    February 23, 2016

    my friend is bulgarian and i know he,d love an english course for bulgarians on here c,mon duolingo make it happen

    April 25, 2016

    Do they have English for Bulgarian speakers? I need it for a student. Thanks

    May 2, 2016

    Здравей, забелязах, че търсиш хора, които владеят български, и реших да се предложа. :D

    May 22, 2016

    Having Bulgarian for English would be fantastic!

    May 24, 2016

    Аз също съм желаещ за създаването на курс с български. Бройте ме.

    May 31, 2016

    Аз съм от България с удоволствие ще помогна за Българският курс!!

    June 2, 2016

    Привет! Бих се радвала да помогна в развитието на курса :)

    June 2, 2016

    Привет! Преди няколко месеца и аз се join-ах в incubator-а. Ще помагам с голямо удоволствие. Според мен трябва определен брой хора да заявят съответния език. Предлагам всички от нас да поканят максимално повече хора, които да пуснат request и така да се съберем повече.

    November 5, 2016

    Каузата не е загубена: - четете: - води до:

    Четейки: Изглежда Дуолинго следят гласуването в тази тема:

    January 4, 2017

    Работи ли се по този курс?

    April 10, 2017

    We need Bulgarian for english speakers! There are so many request and I can personally forward more than 15 users that will benefit the course!

    June 13, 2017

    I want to learn Bulgarian!

    September 11, 2017

    Здравей, I am an English speaker who is studying Bulgarian because I have Bulgarian hertiage! I would love to learn Bulgarian on Duolingo! Могя и благодаря!

    October 16, 2017

    Привет, темата е много стара, аз също бях кандидатствал да координирам подобна инициатива и бих се радвал да се включа в проекта.

    Знаем ли защо от дуолинго се бавят да добавят езика в инкубатора?

    October 18, 2017

    И аз кандидатствах, но отговор никакъв

    October 18, 2017

    Even if its 3 years later, i really hope that they make a Bulgarian language. I hope that they introduce the cyrilic alphabet because i had to struggle with learning Greek, for the same problematic

    October 23, 2017

    I really want to learn Bulgarian too please.

    December 23, 2017

    Yes. I know a bit of Bulgarian, but I need too practice.

    January 12, 2018

    I want to learn Bulgarian and I don't want to do it on memrise.

    January 12, 2018

    Yeah, memrise sux

    January 12, 2018

    Hello my name is Magdalena, I want to learn Bulgarian!!!! If you have some digital grammar book about this language you can send me the book. Spanish is my native language but my mom is from Bulgaria, I really want to learn this beautiful language! I am learning now with 50 languages and another app. But I would like to learn this language using Duolingo :-)

    February 15, 2018

    I am Austrian, my mother tongue is German. I have started an Italian course on duolingo in order to take part in this discussion. I would very much like to start improving my Bulgarian here on duolingo!

    March 17, 2018

    I may love Germanic languages but I will take Bulgarian as an exception for me to learn a Slavic language here. I'm somewhat of a "Bulgarboo".

    April 5, 2018

    If you know where the pages with the Bulgarian courses are, please share it here. I'll try to do something in my free time.

    September 10, 2018

    I know a little Bulgarian, but would be interested in learning more.

    May 3, 2019

    Здравей!! I am a native Bulgarian and I have applied to contribute to the course! So excited!

    May 4, 2019

    Здравей IlyaDovzhanska! I would LOVE to learn Bulgarian! Here, take a lingot!

    July 3, 2014

    Yes! Bulgarian for English speakers please!

    February 18, 2016

    We need Bulgarian on Duolingo!

    February 17, 2016

    Тъкмо пуснах апликация в инкубатора, обаче като гледам от кога е темата, явно няма шанс да се случи. :(

    June 5, 2016

    I would LOVE bulgarian! Take my lingots!

    July 7, 2018

    I am a native biulgarian speaker.I just send my application for starting a course. I hope with this much people interested we will be able to create such a course. Дано нещата да се получат. Приятен ден! :)

    June 2, 2019

    I would really appreciate it if someone did this. I would like to learn and it would be very convenient to do via duolingo. It is a shame Bulgarian isn't offered when fictional languages from TV shows are offered.

    July 17, 2019

    Здравейте! I am a native Bulgarian speaker and can help with the Bulgarian course for English speakers or English course for Bulgarians.

    Currently learning Spanish and refreshing my German. Thanks for the great app! I think the app works well and improves regularly.

    July 10, 2019

    I hope they accept you and blagodarya , I am trying to learn a little.

    July 11, 2019
