I was contemplating spending seven years in Tibet. I was hoping to establish a working understanding of the language (both written and spoken). Offering a Tibetan language program might also garner an interest in this endangered language.
Tibetan is an extremely important language! It is the language of the most profound philosophical knowledge of humanity! Please if there is any way we can get a course in it I would be most grateful! Due to the ongoing occupation and genocide of Tibet, the Tibetan language is at risk of dying out and it is very important that any avenue to preserve it in living knowledge be supported.
I am also interested in learning Tibetan. It would help me with many of my endeavors. If Duo created a Tibetan course, I too believe it would greatly help revive an endangered language. Of course if I can learn some Tibetan on my own accord, I will definitely contribute to an incubation of the course. With hope, we'll see what happens over time.
There are many organizations advocating for and preserving Tibetan culture. I wonder if contacting some of them and encouraging them to put their resources towards creating a Duolingo course would work. It would be a great way 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, great way to preserve the language. Anyone interested in teaming up with me to reach out to some Tibetan organizations?
