About 85% of the total population in Bulgaria actually speaks Bulgarian. The origin of this south Slavic language dates back to the early ninth century. Over the years, Bulgarian has been transformed several times. This has only made it easier to comprehend and use for communication. Bulgarian is similar to English when it comes to how scripts are written, from left to right. It is believed to share a very close relationship with the Macedonian language.
This language borrows some of its vocabulary from others, including Greek, Turkish, and Slavic. Interestingly, Bulgarian has three genders; masculine, feminine, and neuter.
