"I studied Bulgarian at Varna Free University with Mr Petar Petrov. The experience I gained there is invaluable, because learning a language means gaining a fortune. I would like to share about the professionalism and the way of teaching language at the university. There is an individual approach to each student, and the charisma, empathy, sense of humour and ease with which the material is taught is the merit of the lecturer. He showed us the best of the culture and traditions of Bulgaria, we went on many interesting trips. For a foreigner, this plays a big role in shaping the image of the state and the people living in it. This is where my Bulgaria started ... And it remains for a lifetime! ”

"I completed the preparatory course at the Department of Foreign Language Teaching and Postgraduate Qualification. It was difficult for me, but the lecturers helped me a lot. In the course I had good friends - Georgiy and Sergey from Ukraine, Mihail and Yulia from Russia, Nikita from Kazakhstan, Fatih from Turkey. It was interesting and fun with them in class. Now I am a student at the Faculty of Architecture - specialty "Design for Architectural Environment."

 “My training at VFU and, more precisely, the Bulgarian course for foreigners was a great adventure. I can't think of a single negative moment during the training, although learning Bulgarian is a big challenge and doesn't allow for a frivolous attitude. There is hardly another area or field of knowledge that I have mastered better than the Bulgarian language in my life. ”
