Hi there! My name's Dimitar. I'm a language lover, and my biggest passion is learning and teaching languages. I'm a native Bulgarian speaker, proficient in English and French. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Scandinavian studies with a minor in Dutch, and I have a conversational level in Spanish and Russian. In my free time, I volunteer in a non-profit organization called ESN, where I help Erasmus students have an unforgettable semester in Bulgaria! My other interests include traveling, culture, fitness, nutrition, history, geography, and geopolitics. Oh, and I love Eurovision! And I have a cute cat.

Dimitar is an expert language teacher and I feel lucky to have found him. He is adept at carrying on improvisational conversations that maintain about 80% known vs 20% new material and also has prepared many well-design lessons, which he attentively, patiently, and carefully guides me through. He also provides homework includes pre-made flash cards with personalized audio recordings to ensure I have more than sufficient reference and training material for my own practice time.

Dimitar had patience to wait a few minutes for the lesson to start as I had a family situation to deal with for the first few minutes. We started talking, and he was able to steer the conversation to the new sentence construction we have been working on, and it was a seamless transition. Really enjoyed it!

I have been learning Bulgarian with Dimitar for three years. Thanks to the competence of the teacher, I have reached from A2 to B2\С1 level. I can now read any texts, watch films, listen to difficult lectures, conference papers etc. I communicate freely on any subject. Why did I stay for 3 years with this teacher? Because he: - is prepared for class (maybe this should be obvious, but I have had many language teachers and this is not always the case). - adapts to the needs of the student and selects materials with this in mind. He is flexible and does not push only one line e.g. by teaching from a boring textbook detached from the linguistic purity. - uses a variety of methods, techniques and didactic means - is punctual and conducts a lively lesson - is familiar with several foreign languages and thus knows how to work on errors due to language transfer - enjoys his mother tongue and the culture of his country and knows how to interest a foreigner in his country and language!

As usual, Dimitar and I got to talk freely most of the time, and it was very helpful for me to process the deep concepts of a meeting on the family dynamic here in Bulgaria. He was patient and helpful is teasing out specific nuances so that I don’t tell someone I “beat my children” rather than I “discipline my children”. Thanks, Dimitar!

As always, Dimitar and I had a great conversation on a variety of topics. He was able to explain the past non-witness tense simply. I enjoy meetings with him as he is curious enough about topics I bring up and I am forced to use words that are relevant to real life.

Dimitar and I had a good time catching up about what has happened in the past week as well as some common superstitions that we share or know of from Bulgaria or America. He does a great job staying on task and, when appropriate, changing the subject.
