Thank you for the ten day introductory Tibetan language course
you recently taught in Rochester. The course was a wonderful experience for
our entire Dharma Center. Studying Tibetan as a group brought us closer together
and strengthened our shared bonds. And, we had great fun! One person told me,
"This is the coolest thing we have ever done as a group." The response
from the participants was universally positive and enthusiastic. It was a delightful
event from start to finish.
Personally, I would never have believed that I could
learn to read Tibetan in so short a time! Nor would I have believed that the
process would be so enjoyable! Having made previous unsuccessful attempts to
learn Tibetan, I had formed the view that it would be difficult to learn and
tedious. Imagine my delight with your course. It was your respect for this sacred
tongue and also your ability in teaching Westerners that made it successful.
Your skill in knowing just where Americans are likely to stumble made the course
flow. Your humor in presentation relaxed everyone and consequently, we learned
I would be hapy to recommend your course to anyone. It
gets my highest recommendation!
