Bulgarian for duolingo

I'm interested in adding Bulgarian to duolingo. However, I don't want to do it if there are not going to be any people using the language so I was curious to see if anyone was interested in helping contribute (I have not started it yet) or learning the language.

Please include Bulgarian!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bulgaricus

YES! I am Macedonian Bulgarian and I would be elated to see a Bulgarian course on DL. I live in the diaspora and there are not many resources for learning Bulgarian. I see this as an important opportunity, to have a course here as it would be free and highly effective.

Bulgarian was the first written Slavic language and is spoken by 12 million people around the world. That alone should make Bulgarian a priority for DL. :p


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tom586997

Awesome idea! I'm British but currently studying medicine at a Bulgarian university (taught in English), and would love a Bulgarian Duolingo course.

Due to the high cost of studying medicine in Western Europe, and the scarcity of places, many international students (nearly 1000 a year) are studying in Bulgaria, unfortunately there's not a great deal of good textbooks or apps to learn Bulgarian, so a lot of students are graduating without having ever learned the language (which is a real shame!) I think Duolingo would really help generate interest in learning Bulgarian with the growing influx of students, so really hope it happens!

Yспех!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/makahiwitk

Considering I voted for it on the last survey, that would have to be a big yes to learning it from me. I'm really into roses, so I'd love to visit the country that has the 'Valley of Roses'.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pizzabilities

I can contribute. Come to think about it, I can motivate 1-2 other people to contribute as well.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PuertoRico_200

Omg yes finally i love bulgarian an i would love to learn it


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PuertoRico_200

For all people who want to contribute and are fluent in bulgarian maybe you could make a bulgarian course


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tonibony

In the forum there is now a guide for the people who wish new courses in Duolingo - https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/15014194

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 - https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/15014194

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!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

Bummer! I was really hoping to come to the Incubator and discover that Bulgarian is in the works.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/96Seaturtles

I would like for Bulgarian to be on Duolingo. There are barely any websites and many of my relatives speak it, the only problem is i can't speak back due to the time i've spent away from it. I would love to have it on Duolingo so i can speak and master the grammar perfectly.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FlimFlan

I'd love this. I just moved to Bulgaria and am trying to learn the language.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KansasBurri

So you know Bulgarian? That would be cool to have Bulgarian on Duolingo.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/deguo

I would love to learn Bulgarian someday. It's definitely not first on my list, but something about it has always appealed to me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaureenMro

Duolingo, with all this response, WHY haven't you given us a Bulgarian course??????????????


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TravisMadd4

Ikr!? Is unbelievable!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Luth8

Another "please" from me! My in-laws are Bulgarian -- having something structured to practice around with my partner would be perfect.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/7KxJ

I would be happy to contribute. Bulgarian should be on here, it's not like there aren't any other Balkan languages.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FlimFlan

There are several teachers at the school in Sofia I work at who would certainly jump in on this course. Since we bring in several new international teachers each year, the course would definitely have a constant flow of people.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

This is excellent! Can you have them apply here?... http://incubator.duolingo.com/apply (And upvote the main comment.) :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FlimFlan

We're all non-Bulgarian speakers so we wouldn't be of much help with creating the course. I know that if there were a course, though, we'd definitely enroll.

We're on our semester break right now, but I think it would be worthwhile to bring this up with our students when we come back in February. They're all Bulgarian and they're really brilliant kids who would enjoy building this course. The only problem is that their time is at a premium between school and other commitments. I'll keep you posted.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stephan.zlatarev

I am a Bulgarian native speaker and I would love to contribute to the course. Count me in!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iana.gram

Попълни ли "анкетата" на сайта? https://incubator.duolingo.com/apply


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrendiBoo

I've been waiting to see a Bulgarian course in Duolingo for the longest time. I truly hope it comes out soon! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stvedt

Let's get this guy in the incubator already. People clearly want this myself included :) Upvote!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YanitaPetkova

I'd also like to request Bulgarian to be added!

Is there any official news on the matter? I sent an application for contributor as well hoping to stir things up a little. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alelilonanana

People are willing, but Duolingo is not... I have applied (for a secont time already) and I know others have as well, but Duolingo simply isn't opening the course... They don't even bother to send an answer when you apply... Which I find quite impolite to be honest.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/emz26

Yup, I applied too but no answer...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ryan_kelvin82

Hi. I am very interested to learn bulgarian!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Archanei

Здравейте на всички! I am native Bulgarian and I'd like to contribute for adding Bulgarian language to Duolingo, because there are obviously peoply that are eager to learn it, aswell there are Bulgarian that want/need to learn English but don't have the money or time to spend in courses. However Duolingo is awesome platform for learning foreign languages due to being free and enabling to people to use it whenever they have free time to do so. Also it all depends on their own willingness and pace to learn the language. Just awesome these days!

Carry on! BC


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

I really hope the course gets started; I just applied for a couple of courses.

  • Bulgarian for English
  • Bulgarian for Ukrainian
  • English for Bulgarian
  • Ukrainian for Bulgarian

Have you received any feedback? :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fr224

If you haven't already, you may consider applying to the Ukrainian for English speakers course, as that course seems to have a problem with inactive contributors.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

I'm already a contributor :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Irusejka

It would be wonderful, if there was a Bulgarian for Ukrainian speakers course on Duolingo. :) How did you learn Bulgarian? Can you recommend me some websites?

Було б чудово, якби на Дуолінго був курс болгарської для українців. :) Як ти вивчив болгарську? Можеш порадити які-небудь сайти для її вивчення?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SophiaSena8

Bulgarian! That would be so much fun!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dpatkat

please apply to be bulgarian team.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rosejen29

I'm an English speaker who would love to learn Bulgarian as my partner is from there :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LoadedLingots

I would be interested to see how this language would work with the public. On the other hand there might not be enough contributors to do so. It also takes sometime to make a good course, so even if they were to start today it probably wouldn't come out until next year.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KristianHa9

I want to contribute to making the course. I know that it will not be easy and it will take some time. Not meny people are seeing this topic. Any way, is there some way just to try?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

Hi, upvote the original post, and apply here: http://incubator.duolingo.com/apply


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/scarcerer

There are 7 million natives. Certainly there are some who are qualified enough.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LoadedLingots

Yes. But even so it takes more than knowing a language to be qualified you need to know that language and one that the person who is learning is learning. It also take determination.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/scarcerer

My point being, in a European country with 7 million people, there are about to be more than enough people who know English, well. And it's not like there are no Bulgarian immigrants in the US or UK. Most people want to see their language being represented, so among those who know both languages, there will be some who have the determination.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TrioLinguist

I agree, considering Irish became a reality. People like to embrace their roots.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AngelaM.

Hi! A few years later and still no Bulgarian on Duolingo. I’ve applied to the incubator program, do you think that will help?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dari493138

Hi Angela, this is a link to the original post that was made years ago. Just up vote and like the post. https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/5115906 Too bad indeed that the language is still not available :/


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AngelaM.

Upvoted and gave some lingots!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mila214779

I just applied to the incubator as well, but it's pretty discouraging to see how many people have been applying in the past years and nothing happened. I guess we just have to keep bugging Duolingo until we make it!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mila214779

I just submitted an application in the Incubator describing how I'm super excited and super qualified to contribute to a Bulgarian course, and then I saw this topic is over 5 years old and nothing has been done... not encouraging! Hopefully we can make it happen together!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/onagoodman

Yes! Would love to help out too. I just submitted my application. Not giving up!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/memokeswick

Build it & they'll come !


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.wilkinson168

Yes! Please keep pushing for Bulgarian, there is definitely an interest :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wanderlust-er

Is there any update on this? I'm impatiently waiting for a Bulgarian course :P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

Same! Sadly, no update yet, though. (Side note: I received a reply from them regarding my application for assisting in another course, which I applied for 4 months ago, so we might be hearing something about this "soon".)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wanderlust-er

Okay hopefully! Keep us updated :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sirveaux

I am eagerly anticipating this one being added. It's the only language I have a strong desire to learn that isn't already available to me, and one I am hoping gets its turn soon.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanKilpatr1

My wife is Bulgarian, and we want to raise our children to speak it, but this is difficult living the US, and myself not able to speak the language. I would be very interested, as I am very happy with your Spanish offerings.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vwarner

I'm very interested in seeing a Bulgarian course for English speakers on Duolingo. I visit Bulgaria once a year and really would like to be able to understand and speak the language whilst I'm there.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zariga

I really, REALLY would love to learn Bulgarian and I'm pretty desperate for a course here about it due to the possibility of working in Bulgaria. Duolingo has a teaching tactic that really works with me which other apps and such do not, (also I'm way too shy to use those where you get an actual person as a teacher) so this addition would be a life saver for me. Is there any knowledge of if and when this course will be available?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/claire.osborn

YES! I have always wanted to learn Bulgarian. My dad speaks it, and I thought it would be fun to talk to my dad in a "secret language".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yoana493017

Hello! I am Bulgarian too! I'd love to help if you need any help! I also have friends who have been wanting and searching for ways to learn Bulgarian, so that will be VERY HELPFUL! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mariya513775

Hi everyone, I'm also a native Bulgarian (but have lived in the U.S. for 12 years) and would be happy to contribute to a Bulgarian for English speakers course. I can also contribute to an English for Bulgarian speakers course.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LoraSavchova

Native Bulgarian here - I applied for the incubator a while back and would love to see it finally happening. I hope it will be soon! And I love how many people are enthusiastic about learning it :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Craiggriff4

I have been on this thread for 3 years. I thought it would of been up and running by now but nothing.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kurt535321

I've been living in Bulgaria for a few years now and found it hard to learn the language. Private tutoring is too expensive, most online courses are just about learning some word lists and since I'm working, having some day courses isn't an option as well.

Having taken the German course here, I'm really keen on the format of these courses and would love to see a Bulgarian course added here.

Don't know why with all this positive feedback to add this language for over 4 years now, why this course hasn't been added yet?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jschwegler

It's very frustrating that it hasn't gone anywhere. That said, I did recently find a decent site for learning Bulgarian. It's not free, but pretty cheap, and the learning progression that they have makes sense to me (bulgaro.io).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kurt535321

Thank you for your response, already checked out this website (it's bulgaro.io), mind the typo..

Looks promising :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jschwegler

Thanks! Fixed the typo.

    I know this is old ,but go for it Bulgarian is the only slavic language I think I can learn and I want to learn.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jesus849123

    Upvote please!!! ^^^ The more the merrier, please, thank U :-)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/siporfillup

    Yes I would love to learn Bulgarian!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Red_Kitty

    I am a native Bulgarian and will be glad to contribute to adding Bulgarian for English and/or French people to the list of Duolingo courses.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/turnupstuffer

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kate46730

    I would love to learn Bulgarian! I just got engaged to a Bulgarian man and I want to learn more of the language!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erek568276

    Please set up Bulgarian, it would be great to learn.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/phobrla

    Just gave 150 lingots...gotta rest my index finger for a little bit! When a course is designed, the "Intensive Bulgarian, Vol. 1: A Textbook & Reference Grammar" textbook may be a helpful resource.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DJG369028

    Was wondering why there wasn't a single BG course on Duo yet. Would be awesome to combine everything into "a single pack" without going elsewhere. Welcome addition to other Slavic languages here. I'll be waiting...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AngelaM.

    Hey! I've been following this topic for a while so I thought I'd post a quick reminder of how Duolingo picks new courses (https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/18949556) 1. Likes and comments help! The way Duolingo tracks these interactions is here -> https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/15014194 The main post to be upvoted for a Bulgarian course is this one -> https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/5115906 The main post to be upvoted for an English course for Bulgarian speakers is this one -> https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/3576880 2. The more people sign up for the incubator program, the better! There isn't currently any Bulgarian course in the incubator now but if enough volunteers sign up, that will absolutely help -> https://incubator.duolingo.com/ 3. I'm hoping that since there is now a Russian course on Duolingo, it will be easier to get another course using Cyrillic?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AngelaM.

    So.... I've seen a few new comments in this thread so I'm replying to one of my own very optimistic posts from last year. At first I was under the impression that maybe not enough people had signed up to the Incubator or that there were not enough likes in this thread (as if likes=magic) but it's clear to me now that people have been applying in the Incubator to contribute to the creation of the course for years. I've also seen quite a bit of interest in people taking a Bulgarian course. Maybe not enough interest for the Duolingo gods to notice? What I find very confusing is the complete lack of response from Duolingo. There has been no response on any social media platform when people have asked about a Bulgarian course, no response to this thread, no response to Incubator applications (at least no response to my application). It's clear that creating the course is not a priority but considering the thread is 6 years old... any response would be useful so more people don't waste their time applying in the Incubator. Since Duolingo is relying on volunteers so heavily and people have been applying to volunteer, it's quite disheartening to not get a response. Maybe close off applications for languages that aren't already in the Incubator if those applications are never going to be reviewed? PS I've also previously given Lingots to this thread, does that do anything at all or is it just a silly gimmick? Rant over :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TravisMadd4

    It is a strange thing, almost as if Duo is against Bulgarian. After so many years so many people applying and asking for it, they don't give an answer. There are courses for fictional languages, on the incubator there are courses on the making with 1 single contributor and languages with so little native speakers. It makes no sense not to mention the unfairness. It feels as if it is being done on purpose (ignoring us).


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ami640969

    Bulgarian will be a great addition, not only that will help other nationalities to learn a rare language like Bulgarian. but this will help many Bulgarians learn a second language. Due to the years under the communist regime, our parents, uncles and aunts know only Russian and it's very hard for them to find their place in today's international, multi-language and predominantelly English-speaking world! I know many people who will love to use this app and who will love learning new languages in thsi new open, bigger, international and digital world. If your mission is "to give everyone access to a private tutor experience through technology", then Bulgarian (a slavic language of a country that's part of the EU but needs to develop economically due to historic reasons) is the way to go, Duo! I know people who would also love to help with this!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/happy-mouse

    I so so so agree!! do you speak bg too? i've been keeping an eye on this thread for a while and it's sad that nothing's been done even though people have been showing interest on both sides (learning and making the course) for years.... I recently tried applying formally through the incubator but it didn't even let me submit which is so weird and tech didn't get back to me. your summary of its importance is perfect though - which makes what really sucks even worse, that actually useful languages needing this exposure don't seem to be supported enough by duolingo as a whole but fictional languages from scifi or fantasy books have made their way through the whole process and onto the app incredibly quickly in comparison


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ami640969

    Yes, I am a native speaker! What does it mean that you applied through the incubator?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stanislava.grgv

    Hi, here is the application page: https://duolingo-incubator-web.duolingo.com/application. And these are the current courses in progress: https://incubator.duolingo.com/


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kikina42

    It may or may not be too late, but I am one more Bulgarian eager to contribute :) One day, hopefully, this course will happen, but we have to be persistent and increase in number :/


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

    Just keep upvoting, and apply for the incubator. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Didko02

    I am a native Bulgarian speaker, I speak fluent Bulgarian and English i am learning Spanish here at duolingo. I would like to contribute in any way possible for the development of the Bulgarian Course


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

    Most excellent! Did you upvote and apply to the incubator?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Didko02

    I applied to teach Bulgarian, do you think there is any chance i would get accepted?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Martin_Yo

    I tried many times - best of luck to you! Don't stop hoping


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

    Nobody knows, unfortunately. It seems like the guys at Duolingo are busy doing other things than building their customer base and increasing their market reach.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iana.gram

    I am interested even to help one person who wants to learn it. I just applied here: https://incubator.duolingo.com/apply


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashiri1

    My best friend is Bulgarian, so I'd love to be able to talk in it too.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/captain734000

    The thread was started 2 years ago and it seems there are plenty of people willing to contribute and benefit from such a course. It would be helpful if DuoLingo at least releases a roadmap!

    For those who are curious, here is a quick preview: http://www.omniglot.com/writing/bulgarian.htm


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dpatkat

    april2019 now....4 years pass, if anyone is biligual English Bulgarian, please apply to Duolingo.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dimitriosk

    Very interested in this. Learning Russian and Polish now mostly because there was no Bulgarian on and I figured they might help me get started for a (hopefully) eventual Bulgarian course.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yula699827

    2 years later but i have to mention that Bulgarian is close enough to Russian lexically but not grammatically. Polish i think more close to Russian grammatically and not close to Bulgarian. It can help only to get the main idea of how group of Slavic languages works, i suppose, but not to better learn concretely Bulgarian. Успехов, тем не менее:) И я тоже хотела бы курс болгарского на Дуо.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SwordFish1973

    Yes, yes, yes! Unable to contribute, but would love to learn!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SunSurfClimb

    I would be interested in learning it. However I won't be able to contribute (as I do not know it) to the course. Make sure that you get lots of audio for it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pixibuex

    Interested!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Its_Jamesy_Boy

    Please please please!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MsEmaline

    :'( Nobody seems to offer Bulgarian


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Teemu785545

    If you add Bulgarian then count me in! It would be so much appreciated.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

    Excellent! Upvote the original post, if you haven't.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tadhg2704

    I would love to start learning Bulgarian I am very interested!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HRHarvey

    Any update on this course?

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

    Hello, I'm a native Bulgarian, and I'd like to contribute creating the course in Duolingo. My husband is an English speaker, and there are many options for him to learn Bulgarian. Hopefully Duolingo will make the course soon.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eringiggle

    I might be doing a masters in Bulgaria and it would be really useful to get to know the language before then.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Daniel928523

    I have just applied for it. Will I receive an email that my application was accepted and if yes, when should I expect that? I am a native Bulgarian speaker btw.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YanitaPetkova

    Аз кандидатствах преди месеци и още чакам обратен мейл от тях. :( Alas, I have lost all hope.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SashoNr1

    Аз си мисля, че те очакват някой (филолог) да поеме грижа за курса като цяло. Имаше там във формуляра една кутийка, която аз не отбелязах, твърде голяма ми се стори отговорността.

    Дано се намери някой с подходящите тапии и опит, който да успее да ги убеди.

    It's time, приятели!

    Hello, everyone!

    I speak most Slavic languages. Bulgarian is among my weaker ones. I can get by but I'd love to improve my Bulgarian. (I've been a couple of times in Bulgaria and I loved it so I'm looking forward to interesting conversations and new Bulgarian friends).

    Duolingo is not enough but it's a useful tool (because it's fun).


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nochu971

    yes please I want to learn Bulgarian it would be nice to have it here (memrise is not my thing)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JJPrince41

    I want to learn Bulgarian so I can talk with my friend in her language!

    I am interested in learning Bulgarian, too.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Darren_Potter

    Yes, do it. I'd love to be able to learn another language that is not as widely spoken as others such as Spanish and French. Would be great to try it out whilst on holidays ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ale429601

    It would be great to be able to learn Bulgarian on Duolingo!

    I would learn Bulgarian on Duolingo if it were an option! Please keep working on it!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Matt532389

    I would love to help get this on Duolingo in anyway I can. I'm a former Peace Corps volunteer who served in Bulgaria for 2 years.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AliceStock5

    This is a great idea, and I would absolutely love for duolingo to start a bulgarian course!

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/djaellie

    Well my partner applied to be an incubator ( he is a native bulgarian speaker) but if your not an academic or a teacher you cant contribute. Anyway please make this course! I cant say zdraveite and kartoffi forever!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AngelaM.

    Hi! I haven’t seen any requirement for people to be teachers or academics in order to apply for the incubator. Anyone who’s fluent can apply :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alex853704

    I think that Bulgarian is an important language to learn, because there are a lot of Bulgarian people around the world who for example have kids that don't know to read or write in their own language. I personally would really appreciate such course.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Radinaa

    Come on, Klingon?! That's not an official language. Let's bring BULGARIAN! One of the oldest languages in Europe, about time Duolingo introduce it - there are plenty of people ready to contribute asap


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TravisMadd4

    I WANT TO LEARN BULGARIAN I NEED A BULGARIAN COURSE


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/prundev

    Ofcourse! It's perfect idea <sub>~</sub>!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KatTerek

    me too! I already started learning some, Duolingo would be great!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kate_Sunbeam

    I would help with pleasure. I'm not an expert, but I have the good intention to contribute. Count me in!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

    Perfect! Did you upvote the original post?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kate_Sunbeam

    Yes :) I forgot to mention that I am a native bulgarian speaker and I was a teacher in primary school so at least for the basic level I have a lot of sentences and phrases ready to use. I am excited to help and in the summer I have a lot of free time. Hope this project works :)

    There are already many applications in the incubator. I have applied myself, too. What I think we need now is to get some transparency on when a course will be scheduled in Duolingo.

    Please, vote up the request for this here - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16494611 . I will try to approach the Duolingo team with this request as soon as I have 50+ supporting votes.

    I lived in Bulgaria for a year to teach English, and a Duolingo course would've been a much loved resource for me. Even though I will probably not go back anytime soon, I would still love a course to learn more and refresh the little I did learn!

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CaseyBahr

    Seems like there are plenty of contributors available judging by the comments, so why is this not happening? I know there are a lot of expats in Bulgaria from the UK, probably not so many norteamericanos. Is Duolingo's market in Europe too weak to make this feasible?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Graceykins1

    I would really like a Bulgarian course, as my friend is Bulgarian.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/underwood.jones

      My husband and I are interested in adopting internationally from Bulgaria, I have to say if they add this course it would be a huge blessing as Mondly and other courses out there for the language pale in comparison to the quality and ease of use that Duolingo and its course building volunteers provide! I do hope Duo gets a Bulgarian course :)

        Someone has made a duolingo styled course in Bulgarian over at memrise, which is good. I would be very careful about any of the other apps with Bulgarian courses as they seem to be money grabbers and only give you tourist Bulgarian.

        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/superlaxbro

        Try www.bulgaro.io it's very similar to Duolingo and I've found it really great to get to grips with the language


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/superlaxbro

        Anyone looking for a duolingo style Bulgarian course should try www.bulgaro.io it's really good!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CaseyBahr

        It's good, but not so much as duolingo as it requires a LOT of typing in both English and Bulgarian Cyrillic. Unless you are a touch typist or fast at hunt-n-peck (my wife is not, she's the one who needs Bulgarian lessons) then it's going to be painstakingly slow.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Star_Trek_fan

        Yes!!! I have already applied to contribute! Let's make this possible!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Star_Trek_fan

        I found Bulgaro.IO which has a very similar structure as duo, but alas after the first 5 skill, they want money. But anyway if they were able to build such a course, then we here on DUO should be able to as well!

        Give me a few years, and I'll come back and contribute myself if need be!

        TLDR, bump.

        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Polarstar379

        I would love to see a Bulgarian course on Duolingo!!! I was born in Bulgaria (so I'm fluent in Bulgarian), but I'm also fluent in English because I live in the US. I applied years ago to teach Bulgarian, and Duolingo never got back to me... I was hoping to apply again, but now they won't even let me submit the application.

        I want to get the conversation going again, to see if they'll do something this time around. Literally every year I talk to dozens of people who want to learn Bulgarian, and it's baffling how there's no popular online platform that teaches it!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaureenMro

        I think I’m giving up on Duolingo...I’ve been asking for a Bulgarian course for years...obviously THEY DON’T CARE! I’m spreading the word about their blatant disregard. Argh!!!!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TravisMadd4

        6 or so years of people asking for a Bulgarian course, a language spoken by 8 million people. On the incubator there are languages like Maōri, a language spoken by 50 thousand people I mean- I truly don't understand how Duo chooses the language to build a course for. The demand for Bulgarian is clearly big and constant for years, people tirelessly asking for it. There are tons of natives willing to help build it for the tons of non-speakers wishing for it to learn. What are they waiting for? Seriously!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bengiscavalry

        I'm a citizen of Bulgaria but I wasn't born there. Therefore I cannot speak Bulgarian but I would like to. Duolingo is a relatable app for learning languages at least for me so I'd like it to be added.

        Please include Bulgarian


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zory565739

        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HRHarvey

        I am interested. Not that you asked me, but I figured I'd answer. I have a few Bulgarian friends, and out of respect, I'd love to speak their language when I can.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Unusual2be

        Great motivation! Thanks for sharing! As a native I am always curious why would people like to learn it. P.S. Dir weiter viel Spaß mit dem Deutschlernen =)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HRHarvey

        Vielen dank!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Unusual2be

        You could also try 50languages.com You could choose German as "native" and Bulgarian as "want to learn", if you want to keep practicing your German ;) So start with those two and let me know, if you would like more resources I would gladly see what i could recommend next :D There so many resources I've discovered to learn languages, luckily there are many websites and tools - all for free. It only takes motivation and time. Greets, JV


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HRHarvey

        Thanks so much for these resources. Signed up on Memrise and now working on 50 Languages! I LOVE language learning. So important to at least attempt the native language of the country you're traveling in rather than make yourself look like a fool when you expect someone to understand and speak English.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Unusual2be

        Sehr gerne! Falls du Übung möchtest - du weißt schon wo die Bulgaren zu finden sind! =) Dir alles Gute! Grüß, JV


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HRHarvey

        Do you know of any other places to learn Bulgarian?


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Unusual2be

        Sure, I recommend you - memrise.com ! 1.Register - very easy and quickly to do it; 2. You go to the "Search-courses" button and type "Bulgarian"; 3. There are multiple language courses over there, so you pick one and enjoy, after you finish it, you choose another one; P.S.: The website is about learning anything in every area you could imagine, not only languages. Explore and enjoy! Greets, JV


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/no.name.42

        I probably wouldn't learn it to fluency. I like looking at how related languages change.

        Did you upvote the original post then? :) BTW, if you want to help build the course, you can do so here: http://incubator.duolingo.com/apply

        I can't understand how there are fictional languages but not Bulgarian on this app like ❤❤❤ dude


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sage007867

        I want Bulgarian a lot. My fiance's mother and extended family are Bulgarian and I would like to be able to learn for the family. The other resources I've tried have been pretty bad and not congruent with my learning style.

        I also reached out to Pimsleur with no luck. Meh.

        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaureenMro

        I’m afraid you’re wasting your time...obviously Duolingo doesn’t care that we all want to learn Bulgarian!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DavidONeil4

        Bulgarian please!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alexwhb

        I'm interested! I would love to see this become a course on Duolingo. My wife is Bulgarian, so it would be really fun to be able to talk with her family in Bulgarian.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheSwager1

        I wound also be interested in learning Bulgarian


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/martin.bulgaria

        Let's do it! I'd like to contribute, and I'm ready to help anyone who'd want to learn Bulgarian. Поздрав от Варна!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChristianStn

        This is a very good idea and could be very helpful for many people! Count me in if you need help. :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Roksi7777

        I would love to see Bulgarian here, so many Bulgarians would use it to learn English and other languages, surely switching between Cyrillic and Latin alphabet is a challenge but challenges are a good thing...


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Roksi7777

        Please add Bulgarian


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TsvetanSpGeRu

        Yea, please add Bulgarian. It would be really helpful to millions of Bulgarians trying to learn English and other languages. It is the base of many of the languages spoken in countries around Bulgaria. Adding it to Duolingo will help so many people and I'm sure it's worth it! Please, write a comment to make this post bigger so Bulgarian will be added sooner. Thanks.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IvaMihailova

        Well still waiting! So many Bulgarians and people from all over the world are interesting... Come on, Duo!

        Please please add Bulgarian to Duolingo!!!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kerakter

        I find it weird that Klingon is more important than Bulgarian. There are many foreigners and expats living in Bulgaria currently, more and more coming and willing to learn the language. Would be a HUGE help for us to practive on Duolingo.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stanislava.grgv

        Hi! I noticed that the application form has changed and just wanted to share. There are additional questions and different specializations to choose from. Maybe a long time has passed since I last applied, so I will fill in again. Still keeping the hope :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Daniel928523

        Thank you for sharing that info, I didn't know that they made a change. I just applied and I think that all who haven't done it for a long time should refresh their applications. Also, someone must apply for Course Captain, I don't feel that skilled, so I didn't select it.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TravisMadd4

        Not Bulgarian course yet? no? ok. Shame on you Duo

        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/memokeswick

        How could Duolingo do so well with the languages they offer, yet be so LOUSY at telling folks why they don't wish to offer Bulgarian? Crazy world we live in.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JGonduolingo

        I'm interested in this language.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/koriixa

        How do we make a Bulgarian course? Let's all be part of it :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Didko02

        As a native Bulgarian speaker and a linguist, I've applied multiple times to make a Bulgarian course. Duolingo has ghosted me everytime :(


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RickterRich

        I, as a not native speaker to the Bulgarian language, would like to have the opportunity to learn the Bulgarian language in Duolingo.. I opt for this initiative.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/susanouchis

        I’m trying to teach myself Bulgarian and it is not super intuitive for me. Another vote to get this language on Duolingo!! If Klingon is there…. why isn’t Bulgarian??


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GiraffeZsifii

        Please add Bulgarian language to Duolingo


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DagmarGrge

        It would be so nice to have Bulgarian on Duolingo.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aleksjames

        Come on Duolingo, so many volunteering for so long and yet 10 years waiting still nothing. This is in your interests, I now learn Russian on a site, where I can also learn Bulgarian, for convenience. But I'd prefer to do both here, rather than neither.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/StijnDM

        I would absolutely love a Bulgarian course. Are there any updates on this?

        I have seen so many comments of people willing to contribute. If I am not mistaken, there was once a Bulgarian course in early stages of incubation, but this was apparently cancelled for some reason. I don't understand how they can create complete courses for fictional languages, while completely ignoring the demand for a Bulgarian course. This has been going on for 7 years now. I hope one day we will get a Bulgarian course...


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OliverWells67

        I have only just seen this; has there been any progress? I'd like to contribute if I could, I'm English but have spent the past 3 years studying Bulgarian. I would love to have a course available on Duolingo!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RhydianDavies

        I recently wrote Duolingo Incubator about starting a Bulgarian course for English speakers, as well as an English course for Bulgarians. I would be more than willing to contribute! :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AbbieWright2017

        i would learn the language


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Weissbier1615

        I would love to learn Bulgarian here in Duolingo!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.wilkinson168

        Just leaving a comment to give the post a bump, there are about 5 huge posts pushing for Bulgarian to be added, and clearly a lot of interest!

        Please everyone keep calling for the course to be accepted; with Russian in Beta, the Cyrillic alphabet hurdle has already been cleared, and I know from browsing these threads that there are at least 3 dedicated Bulgarians with language teaching and software skills all willing to take on the challenge.

        Thanks again for your enthusiasm,. please make it happen! :)


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/beaverCtrl

        Да, познавам много, които биха помогнали


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/xierrac

        I would love to learn Bulgarian! I am really interested in Russian and love to compare and contrast the two languages


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/utaeyo

        i'm apologizing beforehand if you may feel offended of what i'm going to say. But seeing your comment , and me as a native bulgarian, in my own oppinion, these two lnguages sound, nor look nothing alike.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EpicGermanLearn

        But they are related


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/utaeyo

        Yes. I am not denying that part. It's just how it sounds to me


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/loechpatli

        Sure, they are very different languages, but I remember that during my first introduction to Bulgarian I was thinking: "okay, so it uses the Cyrillic alphabet like Russian, it sounds like Russian, and it clearly shares a lot of words with Russian."


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yula699827

        Of course, Russian and Bulgarian very close lexically. When i try to read Bulgarian i feel like i read in ancient Russian language, i can understand (finding common roots) about 60% without dictionary help. But when i hear Bulgarian i can understand less (but understand:)). (I'm native Russian, and i did not learn Bulgarian yet, i know just general principles).


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnCatDubh

        It could be nice to learn more aspects of Slavic languages... and also surprise my old babysitter and that guy I once developed a bit of a crush on, hah.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stephan.zlatarev

        I added a feature request for a timetable in the incubator - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16494611 - if you like it give it a thumb 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.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stephan.zlatarev

        Като подготовка преди да се свържа с Duolingo екипа за предложението ми за повече прозрачност за езиците чакащи за инкубиране подготвих страница http://kids-read.appspot.com Нека всеки, който има желание да се включи в екип за създаването на курс с български език, да отвори страницата и да ми прати коментар (това е описано на самата страница). Ще се радвам на всякакви коментари, забележки и препоръки. Страницата е по предложението описано тук - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16494611

        To all English speakers, in short the above means: I have prepared page http://kids-read.appspot.com to support a feature request. It can also help us form a team of contributors for the course even before it enters the incubator.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

        So what's the purpose of this "page"? What will happen once you get 5 people (comments)?


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stephan.zlatarev

        The purpose of this page is to serve as a prototype of the feature I requested. The purpose of the real page - the one to be implemented when Duolingo accepts to support the feature - will be, first, to visualize the process from an application for a course till phase one in the incubator, and second, to track the progress of applications for courses throughout this process. The problem the page solves is with the different understandings of applicants, learners and Duolingo team about the process in this pre-incubator stage. What are the factors that play in choosing which course gets into incubator when? How can applicants improve their preparedness and their chances to get their course started?

        I will try to contact the Duolingo team about the feature request when I know there is some support of it among the contributors. My goal is to get 50+ votes in https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16494611 as evidence for that. It currently has 40 votes. Once I make contact with the Duolingo team I will try to get better understanding of the pre-incubator process and will improve the prototype based on that. Until then, the steps I put on the page, including the 5 contributors to form a team piece is just a guess of mine. It just illustrates the idea of tracking progress.

        Meanwhile, however, we can use that page to track who is still willing to contribute to a English for Bulgarian speakers or Bulgarian for English speakers course. I wouldn't count on an application or a comment in a discussion made one year ago...


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benPesso

        That make for a much better explanation. Thank you! :)

        And I totally agree with you. We need more transparency, as it seems like for every course suggestion, there are enough people to provide the necessary contributions to make it, yet nothing (seems to) progress.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stephan.zlatarev

        I just found this comment https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1627314$comment_id=1658898

        So my guess of 5 contributors is off the mark. It seems it takes two qualified moderators to make a team: "Luis: (1) We will let mods start working on them, and it will take some time for them to be built. (2) We will always require at least two qualified mods."


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YV.BG

        Здравей, аз също бих искал да помогна както мога с българския за англоговорящи. Но не мога да ти пиша в профила, затова го правя тук, надявайки се да видиш съобщението.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stephan.zlatarev

        Радвам се. Има хора, които искат да се включат, но от duolingo не отговарят. Явно когато те си решат ще кажат...


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alexjkpg

        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.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/debbie60556

        I would like duolingo to add Bulgarian; so my son can communicate with his Bulgarian parents in law. Do we have enough interest now to get the course to the incubator stage (assuming I have followed the process)? I have completed the French course and found it to be fantastic; I can never be thankful enough for the time you have all taken in making the course available to me. Wonderful application.

        Native Bulgarian speaker here. One of my friends would like to learn Bulgarian and has even bought a self-study book. Hopefully Duolingo can give her an additional opportunity to learn the language in a fun way. Personally, I would love the help in making the course.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-pharmacist-

        I'd like to have it on Duolingo so I can practice. As a bilingual abroad I do not have many opportunities to practice my native language. I can contribute as well but I'm not as confident as in my other native language. Bulgarian to English (Bulgarian for English speakers) sounds like a project I can help work on..


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mrpenguinman

        I'm very interested! After using Memrise and many other language learning apps I would be really excited to see Bulgarian come to Duolingo. It's a great platform.

        Is there anything I can do to help promote this?

        My partner is a native speaker, and fluent in English, so she would be very happy to help.

        Well, Duolingo still not have a Bulgarian course, even I see many people want to learn this language. I also want to learn Bulgarian. So, I try to find another source and I found the app called 'Ling app.' This app is nice and really good for learning languages. Like learning through playing games. Also, you can choose the level of your Bulgarian from beginner to expert including 50 lessons to learn. I totally recommend Ling! Here is the download link: https://ling-app.com/ Ling has an app version and web version as well.

          As many of us are having to resort to tracking down other language apps to learn Bulgarian, Duolingo is losing out by dragging their feet here. I love duo for Spanish, but as I am exploring the other apps that have Bulgarian, I see they, too, offer Spanish. Hmmmm, thinks I who thinks the thunks he thunk--maybe I can get all my courses of a language cuisine in a single location? Get on it, Duo!!


          https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TravisMadd4

          You'll find Spanish in every other language apps because is one of the mainstream languages


          https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Annmkara

          Which other apps please ? :)


          https://www.duolingo.com/profile/randallmenser

          Memrise, Mondly, Bulgaro, ling learn languages

          there are some other pay sites too. I feel Duo still does the better job, but these will work in the absence of a Duo Bulgarian course.

          Did the bilinguals for Bulgarian and English already apply to the incubator? https://incubator.duolingo.com/

          Seeing as it doesn't look like duolingo will ever make a bulgarian course...

          Can someone recommend the best alternative for learning bulgarian on another website. Something in the style of Duolingo or Memrise. I know some people started making a memrise course but it seems they gave up.

          Let me know the best apps/websites for learning bulgarian properly, with good grammar etc..

          The best site I found was bulgaro.io. It's a subscription site, but their progression and flashcards are quite good.

          What I've been recommended was bulgarianpod101 bulgaro.io and the app Master Ling. Maybe we all should gather in a group to help each other with this (thinking)

          Yes please include Bulgarian I think it will help a lot of people

          Yes I really have been waiting for Bulgarian as I am Bulgarian and want my brother to learn it to as we are in a Spanish speaking country and he doesn't hear much Bulgarian

          Unfortunately there isn't apperently none, who can help. There are only persons who want to learn not to teach
