The key objective of the Bulgarian language and literature curriculum is exploring the relationship between language and thinking skills. Emphasis on the history and theory of literature is combined with development of oral and written language abilities, reading comprehension skills, analysis and synthesis skills, and independent critical thinking skills. Alternative tasks and projects encourage research and creative work in the fields of literature, art, and culture. The Writing Center aims to assist students in different aspects of language application, such as orthography, development of ideas, argumentation, composition, and style of writing. The State Examination preparation courses offer students the opportunity to review, supplement, and expand knowledge and skills acquired in regular classes. The Fountain Literary Journal, published by the Bulgarian Department, has a long-standing tradition. Students who have contributed to it have received awards in prestigious national literary competitions as well as become prominent in contemporary Bulgarian literature.
