Solid intro for beginner Tibetan learners
The Colloquial Language series is a great way to get a complete introduction to the Tibetan language for total beginners. I have used these books to start learning several languages and found them super relevant and up-to-date in regards to technology, modern language usage and teaching methodology.
Now the Tibetan audio lessons are free!
Recently, Colloquial Language has raised the bar yet again by offering all of the companion audio for their beginner Tibetan textbook for free online! (It used to cost quite a bit extra to get the CDs along with the textbook.)
Now you can simply head over to the Colloquial Tibetan mini-site and download or stream the audio lessons instantly.
It's awesome that this audio is available for free on its own but it will be most helpful to Tibetan learners when accompanied by the textbook: Colloquial Tibetan Textbook (US) and Colloquial Tibetan Textbook (UK).
Using both the text and the audio together is definitely the best way to get the most out of the Colloquial Tibetan series!
Why choose Colloquial Tibetan?
Colloquial Tibetan is a complete course for beginner learners which has been carefully developed by an experienced teacher in order to give you a step-by-step intro to the Tibetan language as it is spoken and written today.
This text and audio combine clear and practical lessons with solid methodology to give you the essential skills to communicate effectively and confidently in Tibetan across a wide range of situations. You need not have prior knowledge of this language in order to use this textbook.
An exceptional introductory Tibetan course, Colloquial Tibetan presents materials in a logical progression that builds a solid foundation in spoken and written Tibetan.
I particularly like the compact size of the book which makes it easy to travel with. Don't let the small package fool you, though, this text is overflowing with awesome content to get you speaking and reading Tibetan super fast.
