Word for the Travel Wise (10/30/06)

BulgariaWhile I don't know for sure how many people flock to Bulgaria to become expats there is obviously enough for this Expat Bulgaria site Neil kindly pointed us to not long ago. I don't think Bulgaria would be my first country of choice, but if anyone here is considering living there and missed this piece before check it out and afterwards start brushing up on the language.

Today's word is a Bulgarian word used in Bulgaria:

kâshta - house

The Bulgarian lang falls into the Southern branch of Slavic languages and is closely related to Macedonian. It is the official lingo of Bulgaria and can also be heard in parts of Greece, Turkey, Romania, and Serbia to name only a few. To continue learning Bulgarian online head to BBC for the QuickFix with audio for the most common travelers phrases. EasyBulgarian online offers guides and nine lessons that help beginners learn the alphabet, correct pronunciation in addition to dialog from native Bulgarian speakers. Find a Bulgarian pal online to help with conversation at My language Exchange or pick up an Eastern European LP phrasebook for the road.

Past Bulgarian words: mózhé bí, most
