then all he needs to learn is the song ' the wheels on the bus go round and round ' and sing it all day, every day.
"Anyways" is just an informal style of English - originally an Americanism I believe, described by one person on the 'net as being 'a term used by complete and utter c**ts..." (not suggesting in any way that Filip falls into that category, btw).
But you're right, FlagHostel, although strictly speaking it's not incorrect English, it's not my particular style of English either - along with these complete and utter kn*bheads who finish off any text they write with the plebian offering 'Simples!.... '
Yeah - it probably won't be easy Filip. If you want to attract enough students you need to build a good reputation locally as a proficent and affordable teacher of English. Any non-native teacher also usually faces descrimination as a result of not having English as a mother tongue, so rates will also be lower - which as they are low in the first place in BG, can make them rather unattractive.
Can I just ask - when you say you have 'met' this wonderful girl from Sofia, can I just check that you mean 'met' as in face-to-face/going out to different places/having fun together for a semi-prolonged period?
If, alternatively, it was a 'holiday romance' over a relatively short period - then living together or whatever you have planned can be significantly less enjoyable when the drudgery of everyday living and work gets in the way...
I agree with Mat, Jana (or Yana) isn't overly common in Bulgaria (more Russian). However, the next-door neighbour to my apartment in Sofia is called Yana.... Don't think it's her though, as she's married and loves her husband very much....
