COURSE> Tibetan language courseshare (U. of Chicago)

by Christian Wedemeyer
Dear Friends,

Tibetan language instruction is now available online from the University of Chicago for students at colleges and universities without regular instruction in Tibetan. Teaching is done by our outstanding Lecturer in Tibetan, Karma Ngodup ( Currently, first and second year Tibetan are offered. The Chicago curriculum stresses both modern colloquial/literary and classical Tibetan in the first year, covering grammar in Tournadre’s Manual of Standard Tibetan. Second year has a greater emphasis on written language, though work continues on colloquial.

Instruction in Tibetan has been available through Courseshare since last Spring quarter with students from Northwestern University participating. In addition to online instruction, through the Chicago course connection students regularly have the opportunity to spend a day at the Tibetan Cultural Center in Evanston, where they can practice their language skills with the native speakers, participate in cooking Tibetan foods, and observe a range of cultural programs. Further information may be found at the links below, or by contacting Mr. Ngodup at:

Testimony from a student: "This previous Spring Quarter 2016, I took the Tibetan language as a course share from the University of Chicago with Karma Ngodup.  This course was fabulous as it offered me the opportunity to continue studying Tibetan from afar. The in-class portion of the class included use of video so that I could interact with the teacher and student while we were able to read texts together in order to enhance both our reading and translation skills.”

With very best wishes,

Christian Wedemeyer
