The Heart of Tibetan Language A Synthesis of Indigenous Grammar and contemporary learning methodology (Includes Exercise book))
Author: Franziska Oertle
This textbook will thus not only help you to acquire language skills in colloquial Tibetan, it will simultaneously introduce you to a whole new manner of thinking and viewing yourself and the world.
Unlike all other spoken Tibetan Language textbooks that I’m aware of, this one (almost) does not make use of grammatical terms and categories commonly used in European Languages. Instead, you will become familiar with the notions, logic and categorizations that are used by Tibetans themselves: namely, the all-pervasive notion of Self and other, volitional and non volitional, etc. In this way, you too, will eventually come to understand the Tibetan market.
