Tibetan Language



TIB101 Beginning Tibetan, Level I
Working from an unpublished Tibetan language guide created by Dharma Publishing, this class introduces students to basic Tibetan for reading and translating classical Tibetan. Please note that this is not a modern spoken Tibetan language course, rather our focus is on learning the language in order to engage with Buddhist prayers and texts. For those who wish to study and practice Buddhism, it is of great benefit to learn literary Tibetan.
