Level One (reading)
This is for beginners. You will learn to write the Tibetan letters properly, to spell the Tibetan way, and read without the aid of transliteration. Flash cards and repetitions will be used on a daily basis for learning. There are 12 recordings/classes followed by free reading classes for another month.
Level Two (grammar)
This teaches the very basic and essential grammar. You will learn the four main particles and will work your way to understand simple prayers. To join this level, you must be able to read and spell without hesitation. There are 17 recordings/classes.
LEVEL 1 & 2 are studied with the use of pre-recorded classes:
Pre-recorded classes allow you to study at your rhythm. You will have access to recorded classes + weekly interactive Q & A with the teacher to clarify the material. It will be easier for you to schedule both of these at your convenient time.
Level Three (sadhana (practice ritual) or other text)
This teaches the basics of verb grammar and will bring you to finally study an entire practice ritual (if you have received previously an empowerment of the Vajrayana) or another text if you haven’t. To join this level, you must have studied the basics of grammar. There are 18 classes.
LEVEL 3 is also learned through pre-recorded grammar and can be explored as well within the context of an interactive classroom together with other students or through a private setting.
Level Four (prose/commentary)
This will develop your skills for understanding and translate Tibetan Literary through a much complete text of teaching or/and commentary. There will be 18 classes.
Level 4 is as well a meeting class where we explore the text and new grammar all together, or in a private setting.
