Announcing Tibetan Language Classes in Dublin!

Many Many Thanks to Mick Mc Sweeney and Kelle Link for organising these wonderful Tibetan classes.
Please spread the word far and wide!
Tashi Samdup is a great person. He lives in Howth and is sure to be a fantastic teacher.

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to inform you that we intend to offer Tibetan language classes in Dublin early in the New Year.  There will be a beginners' course, and if needed, a course for those who have more experience.  The course(s) will consist of two six-week modules, with the first beginning in mid-January and finishing in March, followed by a second module, probably starting in mid to late April.

The classes will be taught by Tashi Samdup, who is a from Amdo province, in north-eastern Tibet.  Before he left Tibet, Tashi Samdup was studying to be a Tibetan doctor, and while in India, edited a Tibetan language newpaper. This year, he has been teaching Tibetan language in private classes in Dublin.  He has a wide knowledge of both the written and spoken language, being familiar with Lhasa and Kham dialects as well as that of Amdo.
The beginner’s classes which Tashi Samdup will teach will focus initially on the basics of Tibetan reading, progressing to cover grammar, simple spoken Tibetan and translation of prayers.  If there is demand for a more advanced class, the content will be tailored to take account of the students’ prior knowledge of the language.

These classes will be held on Tuesday evenings at 7.30 at  Kagyu Samye Dzong in Kilmainham.  The cost will be €60 per module, payable in full at the beginning of the module.  A reduced rate of €35 is available for Social welfare recipients.

If you would like to
enrol in these classes, or have any questions, please contact Kagyu Samye Dzong at or on 01-4537427.

Kind regards,

Lisa Steifl, KSD
