Bulgarian term or phrase: I чужд
In a list of courses:

Български език и литература

Is this "1st foreign language, 2nd foreign language, 3rd foreign language"?

Sorry for the mix up! The idea was that Russian is considered a foreign language; should have clarified it's not mandatory, but students must study at least one for. language (which is mandatory); that is why the next for. language is optional..

disagree  C_Metschkaroff: В бълг. ВУЗ-ове има само ЧУЖД ЕЗИК! В език. гимназии и в някои филолог. специалности ИМАШЕ първи и втори чужд език (напр. спец. "Прил. лингвистика"), но вече няма. В език. гимназии - има (англ., немски, френски, руски, испански и тн). А Клюнчев е прав!

  -> The diploma in question is a high(regular, not a language high school) school diploma, not a university one. The languages are foreign since they are not native.
