|English language teaching in Bulgaria|
We run English classes for a fast growing number of students. These have recently included members of the Bulgarian military, as part of its NATO accession programme, and Bulgaria's team of European Union negotiators. We have a programme within the Ministry of Defence funded by the British Foreign Office where we work to develop language skills throughout the military.
We run British examinations - not only language ones but professional examinations as well. These represent very useful international recognised qualifications both for students and for employers.
We also work very closely with the Bulgarian educational system in the teaching of English in Bulgarian schools and higher education. We estimate that every year 40% of the Bulgarian state school teachers of English go on one of our training events, usually one or two weeks long.
