Item Code : SNOW4384Includes two audio CD discs and a large 563-page manual (size 9"x12") The Manual of Standard Tibetan presents the everyday speech of Lhasa, as it is currently used in Tibet as well as amongst the Tibetan Diaspora. It not only places the language in its natural context, but also highlights along the way key aspects of Tibetan civilization and Vajrayana Buddhism. The Manual, which consists of forty-one lessons, is illustrated with many drawings and photographs, and also includes two informative political and linguistic maps of Tibet. Two CDs provide an essential oral complement to the Manual. A detailed introduction presents a linguistic overview of spoken and written Tibetan. "The Manual of Standard Tibetan is the best resource available for teaching modern spoken Tibetan bar none. Its grammatical explanations are precise, detailed and clear, while its dialogues and surrounding text are rich with authentic cultural information on the social contexts in which Tibetan has meaning. "The Manual of Standard Tibetan, with its wealth of insights into the language, is a delight to read. In offering such a breadth and depth of coverage for an introductory text of modern Tibetan as used in Central Tibet and among the Diaspora community, it brings the field to a new level, particularly in the area of spoken Tibetan."--Phil Stanley, Naropa University.
- $295.00 set of 18 Audio CD discs + $16.50 p&h (many audio CD's and 4 books!) or $46.50 foreign delivery
Item Code : SNOW4385Includes 18 audio CD discs ( = 26 hours), and four textbooks containing 1,014 pages. This comprehensive audio CD and books course is a proficiency-oriented learning system, including beginning and intermediate levels, and has been developed by language experts and indigenous speakers, both male and female. The course consists of three texts in fifteen units and 26 recorded hours on audio CD's. All recordings are by indigenous Tibetan speakers. The glossary is both Tibetan-English, and English-Tibetan. The first three units are devoted to recognition and pronunciation of the Tibetan alphabet and it's combinations in syllables and words. Beginning with unit four, vocabulary and grammatical patterns are introduced in the form of situational dialogues. Each dialogue is followed by extensive drills which repeat the vocabulary and grammatical patterns in different contexts. In this way the student learns not merely to mimic the phrase but to use the language creatively. The method acquaints students with the sounds and patterns of Tibetan speech, through repetitive interactive drills, enabling them to lean increasingly complex structures quickly, and in this way promotes rapid progress in speaking the Tibetan language. "Fluent Tibetan" is the best course available anywhere for learning the Tibetan language on your own.
