In this language episode, world traveler David Hoffmann sits down with Kate in the city of Bitola to give us an introduction to Macedonian. For those of you who don’t know about Macedonian, it is a South Slavic language spoken by about 2 million people. If you’re thinking it sounds similar to Bulgarian you’re right. Bulgarian is its closest dialect. Here, Kate and David go over some common words in English then in Macedonian to give you a taste for what it sounds like.
If you’re headed to Macedonia, we encourage you to learn some of these frequently spoken words to help you meet new people and show them you’ve made the effort to learn some of the local words (although you’ll find that there are many English speakers throughout the country). We hope you enjoy this intro to the Macedonian language. Special thanks to Kate for participating in the video and to our sponsors, XShot and Macedonia Timeless. Vi blagodarime za glendanje!
