Speak Tibetan like a Tibetan provides the student with an opportunity to learn and speak the Tibetan language as it is spoken today. Not only has the author provided the student with simple and practical examp1cs of its usage in the present day but he has also very carefully explained the pronunciation and idiosyncrasies found within the language.

This revised and enlarged edition of Colloquial Tibetan is the ideal book for anyone interested in learning modern spoken Tibetan. The engaging dialogues cover every situation a learner is likely to face-from getting a haircut to mailing a parcel in the post office. Underlines and appropriate footnotes indicating subtle changes in the sound of a letter coupled with the three chapters at the beginning on pronunciation are a key feature of this book. This book will prove it self a boon to both scholar and layman and will provide all opening to the greater world of Tibetan literature and learning.

Dhondup Tsering is presently the assistant editor of Tibet Journal, a quarterly publication on Tibetan and Himalayan Studies. He is a regular contributor on Tibetan history, culture and politics to various journals and magazines and was formerly a freelance translator based in Dharamsala.
