Tibetan language is the most important language spoken in Tibet, India, Nepal and Bhutan. This language is significantly tied to Buddhist teaching and cultures of many Himalayan countries. When you want to get access to the primary Buddhist texts yourself, or when you want to discuss any issue on Tibetan teaching with high Tibetan lamas without interrupted by interpreter, or if you want to visit any Himalayan country for your interest, then it is the Tibetan language that makes it possible and every thing easier. To provide you with an opportunity to make yourself a Tibetan speaker, we are organizing a Tibetan language course in Amsterdam. This language course is also aimed for those Tibetan fellows and their children, who had no opportunity to learn their own language in their homeland.
