Summary/Abstract: The University of Economics – Varna was founded on May 14, 1920 and this year it celebrates its 100th anniversary. Already in the first university curricula very serious attention was paid to the foreign language training of the future economists, and the number of foreign language classes exceeded the number of classes in any other subject. Prominent philologists who had graduated abroad were recruited to teach foreign languages, and foreign nationals were regularly invited to deliver lectures at the University. Two of the foreign language professors were elected rectors of the University. The purpose of this article is to outline the role of languages in the first university curricula (1920 – 1940 г.) and to promote the names and work of the first language teachers at the University of Economics – Varna.
