Learning the Tibetan language gives one access to Tibetan literature which includes thousands of translations of Sanskrit texts from India – many of them lost in their original language – and twelve centuries of writings by Tibetan masters.
In this Lower Intermediate Class students will expand their Tibetan vocabulary and their reading and writing practice. As a student progresses, the emphasis is on developing vocabulary and getting a sense of the structure of the language, and the finer points of grammar and nuances of meaning.
- To attend this course the students need to be able to read and write.
- This 10 week course runs on the following dates: Jan 19; Jan 26; Feb 2; Feb 9; Feb 16; Feb 23; March 1; March 8; March 15; March 22.
