About the event
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 fluently. If in doubt please contact the office for enquiries.
