Bulgarian as a second language

Thank you for your support for BSL

Dear supporters,

Thank you for your support for the Bulgarian as a second language project!

Together we have achieved so much over the past few years.

Together with our partner NGO EducArt we developed several materials for students whose mother language is different from Bulgarian. First, we developed a Book for students to help them learn the alphabet. We sent 10,000 physical copies of it to education professionals across the country and it is available to download at the BSL page (linked below) at prepodavame.bg where it has 4,000 downloads. We also created a Tactile letters handbook, a Handbook with instructions for teachers, a Vocabulary book for students in primary school, and an Illustrated stories book to explain key mathematical concepts.

We also developed an online course for teachers on How to teach children whose mother tongue is different from Bulgarian that is available to educators on the prepodavame.bg platform (linked below).

Across our two programs - Model Schools and A New Way to Teaching - we have directly trained 50 teachers to be able to provide better support to bilingual students. Each of the four schools we trained as part of the Model School program has also developed an individual strategy for language support.

As we continue evolving our programs and their content, the final BSL-specific training modules took place this spring, so we will close the BSL project on GlobalGiving. Our partners from EducArt will continue developing materials to support bilingual students and we will continue disseminating them to educators through prepodavame.bg

Your recurring donations will be automatically transferred to the Help 90,000 Bulgarian students thrive project and we hope that you will choose to continue your support for our work.

With gratitude,
The Teach For Bulgaria team
