Description

Study Tibetan online for three weeks in July 2020 and/or in Nepal for three in January 2021. Tibetan language is the key tool of communication to study and understand the Tibetan diaspora and Tibetans in Tibet, as well as Himalayans along the Tibetan borderlands. In both the online and January terms, you will build language skills through daily formal instruction as well as in one-on-one sessions with a native Tibetan language partner. After an initial language proficiency assessment, you will be placed in a beginning, intermediate, or advanced class. During the online program, you will develop oral comprehension and basic literacy skills through regular assignments, quizzes, and intensive conversation practice.

The in-country component will immerse you in the Tibetan language as you continue formal language instruction and live with a local homestay family in Kathmandu, Nepal. You will also have opportunities to practice your growing Tibetan language skills through conversations with members of the local community, including political refugees and Himalayans who have been educated in Tibetan-administered schools across the South Asian subcontinent.
