Teaching English in Bulgaria

Post Posted: Sat Dec 03, 2005 3:56 am

I am a native English speaker who has an advanced knowledge of Bulgarian. I want to teach English in Bulgaria but don't really know where to start with the process. Has someone out there been there/done that who can give me some advice on how to get the ball rolling? I would appreciate any insight at all.

Hi war angel
there is a school in Bougas that teaches English,but from what my Bulgarian friend who teaches there has said it is full of teenagers who do not want to learn,as is often the case in colleges in the UK,[other half ex lecturer.]It is the english school,Bourgas.you might find it on the web.
Good luck
Also look up Sofia University, there is an American school also in Sofia.

Hi
I know of a lady who opened up a language institute in Varna and had very little sucess due to the fact that the Bulgarians wishing to learn recieve a very limited income and so her fee for teaching had to be relatively low.
Hope this doesn't put you off too much as i'm sure things will most definately change over the next few years.

I am Bulgarian and I used to teach English there.My advice for you is to look for big Universities like the one in Sofia or Veliko Tarnovo University.You can try also the American University in Blagoevgrad,or Plovdiv University.While I was a student we had some native speakers from UK and USA and they were treated with respect.Don't go to a regular high school.Good luck!
