"21st of January 2021 was a big day for the Bulgarian Deaf Community and especially to those who have worked hard in pushing the Bulgarian Sign Language Act through over the last couple of years: the Bulgarian Sign Language (BGSL) was finally recognized as an official language in Bulgaria. (..)
The Deaf Community will now have all the rights that the new law gives them: to be able to teach Deaf children and students through Bulgarian Sign Language, to receive information through Bulgarian Sign Language and to be confident that they can always and everywhere use their language! However, the work has to continue with BGSL development work and the elaboration on BGSL educational resources. Once the Bulgarian Sign language is equal to the Bulgarian spoken language, opportunities for bilingual education for the Deaf will be initiated."
