Language Partners

Our language partners provide daily one-on-one lessons to students in our intensive Tibetan language courses. More than 20 language partners hail from different regions of Tibet, India, and Nepal. Their interactive lessons adapt to serve different needs and learning styles, also exposing students to various regional accents and idioms. Many of our language partners also teach at the nearby Centre for Buddhist Studies at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute.
