Lesson Eleven - what progress!

As we near the end of our Language course, you may be quite surprised to discover just how much progress you've made and how you can now hold a complete conversation in Bulgarian ... if you don't believe me, wait until the Make Progress section of this lesson below!






Build Strength

Here are the translations of the exercises of Lesson 10:

1    I receive a letter from her every day.
2    He phones every Wednesday around seven.
3    I pay 100 leva for this seat.
4    She doesn't want to answer this question.
5    I don't know what to choose. There is a wide choice here.
6    We are not ready to pack.
7    I can't sleep but do not know why.
8    I want to invite you on Monday.
9    When you speak Bulgarian, I can understand a lot but cannot speak much.
10    I cannot help you right now, I am busy.

1   Аз искам да отида до София.
2   Аз не мога да прочета тази книга.
3   Аз искам да платя за билет за вход на музея.
4   След обяд винаги отиваме на разходка.
5   Какво прави?
6   Тя се обади по телефона с приятелка си.
7   Когато съм на ваканцията винаги тръгвам за Варна.
8   Разбираш ли когато ваня бързо говори.
9   К съжалявам, аз мога само да разбера, когато тя говори бавно.
10   Не знам какво да избера и ти не можеш да ми помогнеш.

One more step to go and we shall have reached the end of our course.

You have by now gained enough autonomy and hopefully enough confidence to make yourself understood in ordinary conversations.
With this lesson I want you to make sure you have made enough progress to use this lesson as a test towards lesson 12.
