COLLOQUIAL PACKAGE Learn to speak modern Tibetan!

Learning Practical Tibetan

A revised version of Tibetan Phrasebook. Many students have expressed that this book and tapes are a wonderful language tool and much more than a phrasebook. So the Tibetan Phrasebook was expanded into a larger format and now includes the Tibetan script in addition to the phonetic system, making it useful as a practical Tibetan language study tool. It begins by introducing both a phonetic system and a simple yet complete grammar. In addition to containing phrases and dialogues, each chapter is preceded by useful information, vocabulary, and some pointers about Tibetan customs and etiquette. The appendices include these helpful sections: numbers, dates, days and time, dates of festivals, religious and monastic vocabulary and a general vocabulary.

Optional: Two 90-minute cassette tapes to accompany this book . See Tibetan Phrasebook tapes .
