Introduction to Colloquial Tibetan - Semester 3

This course is the continuation of Introduction to Colloquial Tibetan (LAN 501). It is oriented toward students who have had some training in the Tibetan alphabet, spelling, Tibetan verbs, and beginning dialogs. The emphasis of the classes is on developing fluency with spoken Tibetan. Students will focus on training in successively more complex Tibetan colloquial dialogs. The class will cover introductory Tibetan material on numbers, time, days of the week, the four seasons, parts of the body, and members of the family. We will then begin working with the material in the first two to three chapters of The Heart of Tibetan Language by Franziska Oertle. Supplementary material will be provided, including flashcards.
