7:00pm Tibetan Language – Second Year
July 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until July 25, 2018
Teacher: Eric Dulberg
Wednesdays: July 11, 18, and 25
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Monastery Library
Class fee: $15 Public, $10 Members (per class)
Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor. Substantive prerequisites are listed below.
In 2018, we are continuing the second year of a course in literary Tibetan language. This quarter, we will continue using Translating Buddhism from Tibetan, by Joe B. Wilson. In addition, we will continue using How To Read Classical Tibetan, Volume One, by Craig Preston.
Enrollment: I expect to limit class size to the current four students. However, if there is someone with a strong wish to join the class, and if their level of understanding would be a good fit with the current students, an additional student may be added. (My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.)
