Speak Tibetan the Tibetan way is based on the lessons I have prepared for the Intermediate Tibetan Language class I teach at the Library of Tibetan Works & Archives (LTWA). My aim in writing this book is to provide material that teaches the Lhasa dialect in a holistic manner by integrating written, colloquial and honorific aspects of the Tibetan language. I am also planning to put out a companion CD/DVD to facilitate study without a teacher. It is my hope that these materials will prove a valuable resource for not only non-Tibetan students, but also the younger generation of Tibetans interested in learning their own language and culture.
I would like to thank Geshe Lhakdor, the director of the LTWA, whose utmost support made this book possible. I would also like to thank some of the staff here at the LTWA for their help and thoughtful. suggestions-thank you Wangdu Tsering, the head of the Oral History Department; Naga Sangye Tendar, the head of the Cultural Research Department; Dr. Chok Tenzin Monlam, the head of the Research and Translation Department; and Nyima Gyaltsen, the head of the Science Department; I sincerely thank Julia Wilson, current interpreter of one of the Buddhist Philosophy classes at the LTWA, for her immense help with translation and editing.
