For all those wanting Tibetan language on Duolingo lets make it happen!

I am done waiting for it to happen so here is how we do it. We need Tibetan speakers to create the program so we have to recruit. There are many organizations advocating for and preserving Tibetan culture. I propose contacting some of them and encouraging them to put their resources towards creating a Duolingo course. Also if you know Tibetan speakers willing to contribute put them in touch with me and lets get the ball rolling.

It would be a great way for them to get the language in front of an avid language learning community of a lot of people who otherwise might not learn or even consider it, ideal for preserving the language.

I would very much like to learn Tibetan for two reasons. First I believe it will supplement my meditation practice and study of Buddhism & life. Second it will help preserve a culture that I feel is remarkably unique and needed in our current world.

Anyone interested in teaming up with me to reach out to some Tibetan organizations? Lets plot the action steps!
