Tibetan?

Where can I find good resources for learning Tibetan? I would love to see a course on here. I started using a different app in conjugtion with duo and I was happy it had Thai and Persian but I still have trouble finding resources on Tibetan, even though I do like the TibetTv youtube channel, it is meant for those already fluent in the language... music recommendations also would be appreciated. It's only a matter of time before Tibetan and Burmese are added, I believe. It'd be nice to have languages from different language families on here but I am grateful for what is already on here too.

Thanks guys ^_^

Hi Yannai. Interestingly Memrise might be able to help you with Tibetan. Hope this helps. Be well! (Edit: hi Judit. Yes you're right, it is mostly vocab, I use it a lot for that and the lovely dark mode:-)

Did I hear dark mode? ...ears flapping....

No idea if it is any good - https://www.memrise.com/courses/english/tibetan/

But I have found Memrise in general to be useful (and it's free). However, it tends to concentrate on vocab rather than grammar.

I'd love to learn Tibetan one day too and have looked around for some study material..

Maybe this book is something for you?: https://www.amazon.com/Colloquial-Tibetan-Jonathan-Samuels/dp/113895019X/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=learn+tibetan&qid=1570208999&sr=8-4

I think generally, more South Asian languages should be added. I would love to see Dzongkha and Thai on here as well. :)

Those would both be lovely additions, along with Nepali ^_^ South Asian languages are great. I am thinking they will add a Dravidian language sooner than later, since they already have Hindi out and am sure they will add more Indian languages.

I think they will add Tamil or Telugu for English speakers once their respective reverse courses are finally released.

Tibetan writing in particular is so amazing looking to me. I will definitely be watching this discussion. Thanks for starting it!

I guess the Tibetan script is used for the Tibetan dialects and for Dzongkha in Bhutan! ^_^

There's a book/course out there called "Fluent Tibetan". From what I've heard it appears to be the best beginning course.

Is Tibetan not a brutal game of pictionary?

Edit: I am ill informed.
