The average height of Tibet is 16,000 feet above sea level a€“ higher than the highest peak in the Colorado Rockies. We all know Tibet as the home of a mystic lamas, ruled by the Dalai Lama, a land isolated from the world. Over the centuries Tibetan monks preserved and elaborated Indian teachings in Buddhist philosophy a€“ but also history, medicine, grammar, and more. Now whether under Chinese rule or in exile, Tibetans are trying to adapt their civilization to modern times.

For over 1,300 years Tibetan language has been written in the same script: learn it and you can understand Tibetan written anywhere, anytime! Indiana University is one of a handful of American universities that offer classes in the Tibetan language. Nomads herd yaks, an animal so well adapted to mountains that it wona€™t even breed below 10,000 feet. Mongol and Manchu emperors sought Tibetan lamas as tutors for them and their children and Tibetan monks became well know in the great cities of Asia.

We invite you to take advantage of a rare opportunity to learn a fascinating language that opens the door to one of the worlda€™s most intriguing cultures. Farmers cultivate the valleys, merchants cross rivers on legendary bridges of iron chain, and monks chant in the monasteries.
