Summary/Abstract: Concerning the tuition in Bulgarian schools abroad Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Bulgaria submits an opportunity to panels of Bulgarian specialists to prepare adapted programs and textbooks for the needs of education. After preparing the issues, the chosen panels hand them in to the Ministry, and then the printed textbooks are sent to Bulgarian schools in different parts of the world. In this report we comment available textbooks in Bulgarian language for the preparatory group, first grade, second grade, third grade, and fourth grade, adapted for the Bulgarian school in Sydney, Australia. The author of the report shares her experience with bitter sorrow, as she was using these textbooks, while working as a Bulgarian teacher in August and September 2016. The sad conclusion is that the attempt of adapting these textbooks is absolutely unsuccessful and the above mentioned books are not suitable for tuition in the South of Equator. It corresponds with totally opposite ideas for teaching methods of the author, and her strong conviction that our mother tongue should be taught as a second language abroad.
