Tibetan is one of the four major languages for students of Buddhism, along with Sanskrit, Pali, and Chinese. Learning the Tibetan language is therefore an important gateway which opens the door to the treasure-house of the Dharma, eventually providing a deeper understanding of the Buddhist texts and teachings.

The emphasis of this course is to enable the student to read and write through learning the basics of the alphabet, spelling, and grammar, so that they can start to use the Tibetan language for their own Dharma practice.
