Intermediate Colloquial Tibetan - Semester 3

This course is a continuation of our Colloquial Tibetan series and is oriented toward continuing students who have had training in the Tibetan alphabet, spelling, and beginning dialogs. The emphasis of the course is on developing further fluency with spoken Tibetan both in listening and in speaking. Students focus on training in successively more complex Tibetan colloquial dialogs. Spoken Tibetan will be emphasized by the teacher during class and students are encouraged to use Tibetan when asking questions as opposed to resorting to English. The course covers the material in chapters 8, 9, 10 of The Heart of Tibetan Language (HOTL) by Franziska Oertle. Prospective students are expected to have studied chapters 1-7 in HOTL. They should be willing to participate in a class where they will be largely taught using colloquial Tibetan. Homework is assigned.
