The research carried out by the Sofia-based consultancy Sofia Group shows that Bulgarian is the second most popular European language in the country, behind English.
The results are based on the survey of 2,100 Bulgarian speakers in 10 different regions.
According to the survey, which was conducted from February 1 to 15, the Bulgarian language has the second highest popularity among the speakers in the 10 regions.
Sofia has conducted the study since 2001.
The study is the latest in a series of initiatives aimed at improving the visibility and use of the Bulgarian national language.
Last year, Sofia launched a project called Bulgarian Linguistic Community, which aims to strengthen the community’s awareness and the capacity to use the language.
According to the Sofias’ research, the majority of the speakers of the Russian language in Sofia are of Bulgarian descent.
Only two percent of the population of Sofia speaks English.
“The Bulgarian language had a high level of adoption in 2010 and is now being widely used, even in the most deprived areas,” said Sofia’s director of research, Zana Dzhemileva.
“There are several ways to improve the use of Bulgarian language in everyday life, and the new survey confirms this.”
The survey was carried out in Sofias most deprived regions and the majority were in the northern parts of Bulgaria.
The most deprived parts of the country include Gavra, Sofians capital, where a significant number of people live in poverty.
The report reveals that the Bulgarian Language was used in the first half of this year, with an increase of 10.2 percent.
The language is still used more than 50 percent of days of the year, but the number of days that the language is used has decreased by 10 percent in the past two years.
This study is an important contribution to the efforts of the Sofian community and the Bulgarian Government to improve its language and the visibility of the language in society.
