Erasmus Intensive Language Course

The Erasmus Intensive Language Courses (EILC) are specialized courses in less widely used and less taught languages organized in the countries where these languages are spoken.The EILC are addressed to students who have been selected for an Erasmus study or placement period. Comenius and Grundtvig Assistants may also participate, provided that there is a surplus of places in a course. Participants are not charged a study fee for participating in the EILC. However, some fees may be charged for the cultural activities. This year (2013-14) the EILC will take place for the last time under the Lifelong Learning Program (LLP).
(Information about the EILC:



Our Erasmus Intensive Language Course is aimed at all future Erasmus students, Comenius and Grundtvig assistants who have chosen Bulgaria for their Erasmus, Comenius or Grundtvig mobility. Thus the University provides couses for beginners. The carefully planned schedule of the course will provide the students with knowledge and skills important for their education and will grant them the opportunity to see for themselves the rich culture and history of Bulgarians.

Time of the courses: 19/08/2013 – 13/09/2013



The main objective of the EILC is the development of various language skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening  which will be of use for the participants during their studies as Erasmus students in Bulgaria. Participants will be taught basic grammatical and lexical constructions and categories. An interesting part of the educa tion process will be the presentation of present-day vocabulary used in typical everyday communication (chats, e-mails, blogs).


The main topics in the course  the Bulgarian alphabet, introducing oneself, greetings, family, nationality, weather, calendar, time, everyday communication, shopping, making telephone calls, holidays, travelling etc. The learning will be facilitated by real visits to the market, station, supermarket, café, the beach, etc. where students will be stimulated to use their knowledge and make dialogues, ask questions to passers-by, etc.


The classroom  will be organized in a way that simulates real communication contexts. The atmosphere will be friendly and easy-going in order to help students overcome the language barrier. On the whole, speaking will be given a priority. All the participants will receive learning materials for free.
