With David Curtis

 

 

Significantly enhance your study and practice of the Dharma from the convenience of your own home. Study with a teacher who has successfully taught hundreds of students from all backgrounds over the last 22 years. David has taught seminars in more than a dozen states and his classes are highly recommended by students, scholars, Lamas, and Rinpoches.

 

 

What Rinpoches Have Said

 

"David Curtis is one of the best teachers of Tibetan Language....It is a rare opportunity. David is not just a language teacher; he is part of an authentic Dharma lineage."  

                                                                                                            --Anam Thubten Rinpoche

 

 

 

"The unique methods of language instruction offered by the Institute have drawn large numbers of students, and the speed and swiftness with which they learn to read and write Tibetan is remarkable."          --Gochen Tulku Rinpoche

 

Curriculum for Level II Course     

  

Building on a foundation of the study of words, phrases and sentences in Tibetan, the student will begin to integrate material presented in the Level 1 course, learning how Tibetan works as a language. This course lays the foundation for the successful reading of Tibetan texts and participation in the Level III Reading Course.

Classes are fun and a great way to fuel your studies. Being able to access this kind of course from the comfort of your home or when you are traveling is a great opportunity to continue to deepen your experience in the Dharma.

 This course is ideal for those students needing a review or for those who cannot attend a seminar in person.

How does the course work?

  

 All you need to do is

(1) Register for the class on the TLI website. Don't wait as this teleconference technology has limits on how many can attend.


(2) Obtain the necessary Level II Manual and/or Level II Package.


3) On the designated time and day, call the special number that will be given to you. This is a telephone number usually in Iowa and is not toll free.

4) Have to miss a class?  Just want to listen to the class a second time? Not a problem because included in your registration is a phone number to access a telephone recording of the class (not a computer download). Students tell us over and over that this is a very useful and convenient aspect to the class.

 

 

Student Comments on TLI's Courses

 

 

Learning Tibetan from David Curtis is definitely one of life's better experiences.

                                                                                                                     --K.J., VA

 

 

  

I love this course. I feel as if I am finally making progress in Tibetan. Thanks, David! Your method works.                                                                                                   --W.S., LA

 

These telephone lessons have been so enlightening and enriching to my practice. It's been so good to learn right at home, with my cup of tea! Yet there's a wonderful teacher present, and other classmates, and the opportunity to ask questions....It can't get any better than that.                                                                                                                        --M.M., AZ

 

I am taking the level I class and enjoying it tremendously. I have [now] been studying regularly which is helping me feel confident that I'll be able to read and continue learning Tibetan beyond this first class.                                                               --C.P., CA

 

Just wanted to say how great the virtual class was last night. David's presentation was so interesting, tight, and focused. The whole thing was a lot of fun--so thank you!                                         --R.A. , MT

                                                Sang-ngag Rinpoche) has given him the title Acharya (master
