First Bulgarian Online School "По жицата"
Established in 2005 as a joint initiative of the Bulgarian Business Center and New Internet Technologies, this school offers online classes in Bulgarian language, history, and literature to young heritage speakers of Bulgarian. In 2006 the school also started teaching Bulgarian as a second language. Bulgarian National Television presented the school "По жицата" to its audience on 1 November 2009. You can see the clip here. To learn more about the school's founders Valentin Nenkov and Nadežda Dimitrova and the school's teaching team go to http://bulgarian-online-school.com/bg-about-us. The school's name literally means By the Wire and is an allusion to the title of a famous short story by Bulgarian author Jordan Jovkov (1880-1937).
