Summary

The most systematic and extensive course system available for learning the Tibetan language independently.

Fluent Tibetan 
was developed by language experts working in conjunction with indigenous speakers at the University of Virginia. Based on courses for diplomats needing to learn a language quickly, the method acquaints students with the sounds and patterns of Tibetan speech through repetitive interactive drills, enabling the quick mastery of increasingly complex structures and thereby promoting rapid progress in speaking the language. It is the first text recommended for language study by the Sera IMI House at Sera Monastery for Western monks as preparation for entry into the Geshe studies program.
