A short educational cartoon about the Chinese Idiom 画蛇添足 or drawing a snake with legs. To understand better this cartoon see the full lesson at http://www.foodragon.com/2013/02/24/tasteful-expressions-adding-legs-to-a-snake
In this video, we learn the Bulgarian colours. Although, our main focus is on the colours, at the same time we subconsciously memorize some basic travel vocabulary and grasp a very important grammar category called Gender. We cover the names of 10 basic Bulgarian colours: green - зелен yellow - жълт purple - лилав white - бял red - червен grey - сив brown - кафяв pink - роов black - черен blue - син We make a very coherent lesson by combining the colours with some helpful words as: plane - самолет car - кола taxi - такси ticket - билет station - гара bottle - бутилка suitcase - куфар map - карта bicycle - колело What is more, without putting too much effort, we also work on the grammar category of Gender. For a better understanding of what the grammar category of Gender is and how to use it, check my article: http://languageinspiration.com/bulgarian-colours/ For a lot of English speakers this category might be a bit too abstract, but eventually, it will become more and more familiar. For people who speak other languages as Russian, Polish, Spanish, French, etc. the idea about words having a gender will be extremely easy to comprehend. Nevertheless, no matter what your nationality, age or level is, you should always remember that you are doing a great job. And never compare yourself to other learners as you do not know what their learning background is. This is an absolutely amazing video because it combines three things in one. In addition, allows you to learn logically connected and extremely important words and concepts in Bulgarian. Hope that you will enjoy it. See you next time and until then smile, have fun and learn languages.

Here are the links to my articles that are connected with this video: http://languageinspiration.com/chinese-for-beginners/ http://languageinspiration.com/introduce-yourself-in-chinese/ This is the text in Chinese: nǐ hǎo nǐ hǎo ma wǒ hěn hǎo nǐ jiào shénme míngzi wǒ jiào Lìlì nǐ láizì nǎlǐ wǒ láizì 你 好！你 好 吗？我 很 好。你 叫 什么 名字？我 叫 丽丽。你来自哪里？我 来自 Bǎojiālìyà nǐ duōdà wǒ èrshísì suì le rènshi nǐ hěn gāoxìng zàijiàn 保加利亚。你 多大？ 我 二十四 岁 了。认识 你 很 高兴。 再见。 The English translation: Hello! How are you? I am very good. What is your name? My name is Lily. Where do you come from? I am from Bulgaria. How old are you? I am 24 years old. Nice to meet you (literal translation: To meet you, I am very happy). Goodbye. Do not forget to do your homework. Read the text one more time before you go to bed.
Do you want to learn the numbers in Bulgarian? This video will help you memorise them easily, with fun, and with inspiration. Saying the word and doing the action will greatly accelerate the learning process. First, we start by counting from 1 to 8. Once we master these numbers, we continue with 9 and 10 to finish with the numbers in Bulgarian from 11 to 20. There are two different ways to say the numbers from 11 to 20 which are both correct. You can pronounce 11 as единайсет or as единадесет, 12 as дванайсет or дванадесет, etc. I prefer the first one as it is much more common and widely used. You can also notice that when I speak I do not really pronounce the "т" letter at the end of the words. This is not accepted as a grammatically correct form, so do not use it when writing. Nevertheless, this is how most of the Bulgarian people would say it. Thus, if you want to sound more authentic when speaking, listen to the way I pronounce the numbers in the video.

In this lesson, we take a completely different approach to learning a new language. Instead of spending time staring helplessly at the sheet of new words that we need to memorize, we actually put them into use and see how they can be applied in real-life situations. We learn some basic food and cooking vocabulary while at the same time we are enjoying a funny lesson of Bulgarian. We also get to know what one of the most popular Bulgarian dishes is and how to make it. Have you ever wondered why the Shopska salad is one of the most famous and popular dishes in Bulgaria? There are a few main reasons that I can give you. First, because it is very tasty and goes well with some other traditional Bulgarian dishes as kebapche and kyufte (you can read more about them in this article - http://languageinspiration.com/traditional-bulgarian-dishes/). Second, because it is the perfect dish to have while drinking rakia (a traditional Bulgarian alcoholic drink). And third, because it is a culinary symbol of Bulgaria and has all of the colours of the Bulgarian flag: white (the white brine cheese), green (the cucumber) and red (the tomatoes). The salad is very easy and can be made for a few minutes. The only products that you need are: 1 cucumber, 4 tomatoes, pepper, onion, cheese, 3 olives, fresh parsley, oil, salt. Then you just peel the cucumber and cut it. Cut the tomatoes, the pepper and the onion as well. Grate a bit of cheese on top, add parsley and olives. For flavour, you can add a bit of salt and oil. Hope that you have enjoyed this unusual lesson of Bulgarian. See you next time and until then smile, have fun and learn Bulgarian.
