Foreign Service Institute Bulgarian  - Image Bulgarian is an Indo-European language, a member of the Southern branch of the Slavic language family. Bulgarian, along with the closely related Macedonian language (collectively forming the East South Slavic languages), has several characteristics that set it apart from all other Slavic languages: changes include the elimination of case declension, the development of a suffixed definite article (see Balkan language area) and the lack of a verb infinitive; but it retains and has further developed the Proto-Slavic verb system. Various evidential verb forms exist to express unwitnessed, retold, and doubtful action. Estimates of the number of people around the world who speak Bulgarian fluently range from about 9 million to 12 million.

Each unit of this FSI Bulgarian basic course (Volume 2 of 2), aside from review units, is divided into three parts: Basic Sentences , Notes, Drills. Units 13 on have a fourth part, a reading passage. The Basic Sentences are normal dialogue material, meant to be memorized. The Notes explain the grammatical structure of the language and are divided roughly into three phases. The first phase (Units 1-6, 7-11) has a great deal of grammatical material per unit, in order to give the student a working knowledge of the most frequent patterns. The second phase (Units 13-17, 19-23) treats fewer grammatical features per unit. The third phase (Units 25-29) gives more overall treatments of selected features. The index to the grammatical notes gives ready reference to all features discussed.
