Why is Macedonian an important language to learn?
Have you ever dreamed of experiencing Greek, Roman, and Ottoman heritage in one place? Macedonia is an amazing destination that offers all three heritages plus much more! Imagine wandering around the towns before stopping for a break near Lake Ohrid or hiking the trails of the mountains inside the national parks. This country is not part of the usual tourist trek, which means that you may find that you are making discoveries that no one else has seen as of yet! Currently, two and a half million people speak Macedonian, and everyone should learn this language before they visit the area.
While there are many reasons why you need to learn how to speak Macedonian, the main one involves the welcomed feeling that you will experience as soon as you arrive in the country. The locals are quite friendly and helpful, and you will want to take them up on everything that they offer, only it is much easier if you speak their language. Once you learn Macedonian, you will find that it is much easier to understand Montenegrins, Serbs, Croatians, Bulgarians, and Bosniaks, while learning those languages at the same time. Of course, as soon as you can speak this language fluently, or almost fluently, other people will be asking you to help them since not many others can speak Macedonian or are willing to take the time to learn!
