BCNE is pleased to offer Bulgarian classes for adults again this fall, starting on October 13, 2018 and will continue through end of April 2019. 

Where: Bulgarian School at 411 Waverley Oaks in Waltham, MA 
When: Classes start October 13, 2018 at 3pm and will be held each Saturday excluding the long weekends. For details and schedule: http://bulgariancenter.org/programs/

1. Beginner Bulgarian for Busy Adults: Saturdays, starting October 13, 3:00-4:20 pm.  (Group 1)
This is an introductory practice course in Bulgarian as a foreign language. We understand that as busy adults, our students’ time for homework and practice outside of class is limited. In this 80-minute course we will start from the basics and will practice together as we strengthen students’ knowledge of the alphabet and get comfortable with using every-day phrases. Our hope is that at the end of the semester students will be able to read and write in the Cyrillic alphabet, to introduce themselves and other people; to speak about themselves and their environment. Suggested practice at home: between 2 and 6 hours weekly.

2. Advanced Beginner Bulgarian for adults: Saturdays, starting October 13, 4:30 -5:50 pm. (Group 2)
This is an advanced beginner practice course in Bulgarian as a foreign language. Prerequisite: at least one Beginners Bulgarian class or equivalent knowledge – fluency in reading and writing in the Cyrillic alphabet, greetings and introductions, grasp of present and future tense verbs and their conjugations. At the end of the semester, students will be able to speak about themselves and their environment, ask questions and provide information about people, objects and places, and talk about their daily activities and their interests in the past, present, and future tense. We suggest between 2 and 6 hours of homework for this class weekly.

Tuition for 2018-2019 course (22 classes) is $520* (payable by check to BCNE on October 13, 2018).  
*BCNE members receive a membership discount and tuition is $450 (Individual annual membership $50; Family annual membership $75; Paid membership receipt should be provided first day of class if completed online here: http://bulgariancenter.org/membership/ or completed during the first class by filling out a Membership Form). 
 **All contributions from membership as well as the course go towards BCNE's capital campaign raising funds for a home of the Bulgarian community. 

To sign up for a class please email us at info@bulgariancenter.org no later than October 10, 2018. 
This is important, even if you have spoken to us before:  We need an active e-mail, phone number, first/last name and level of class preference. It would be great if you could share with us a few words about your interest in the language, whether you have already learned/what level, what your expectation of the class is. This will help us place you in the proper class and to adjust the topics to the groups’ needs. We do allow students in the basic group to stay for the second class without additional charge if they feel that their level is slightly above basic.

Looking forward to meeting our previous as well as many new students!  Please share with others that may not receive these emails.
