This is the beginning course for the Tibetan Language Course of study of literary Tibetan. Learn to read, write, and pronounce the Tibetan alphabet. Also begin to learn the very unusual way that letters are combined to form syllables.
Given our busy schedules and unforeseen situations, it is often difficult to learn the alphabet well the first time we try. Students who have already studied the alphabet with me and who wish to continue learning the alphabet, are welcome to take the course again: and with a 20% discount from the fee.
Class size is limited. Please register by emailing instructor: firstname.lastname@example.org. Instructor will respond by email by April 19.
