Kliment Ohridski. Taking into account the local tradition of teaching PLE and the
students‘ results in the oral expression are intended to outline the critical areas
in the acquisition of PLE by Bulgarian students. The most persistent errors
are identified at the level of the Segmental and Suprasegmental Phonetics and
working hypotheses for future research in this area are defined. It also seeks to
study the application of digital resources, the internet and audiovisual media

the difficulties encountered in learning PLE.
