Tsering Lhamo, Phd Student – Summer Program

The Nepali summer intensive introductory course at RYI is a great course for those seeking to get an introduction and exposure to the Nepali culture and language. It was taught by a dynamic professional language instructor who made learning a language fun, collaborative, and inclusive of all students. The ALI compliment to the class lectures were great in allowing us to immediately use and practice what we’ve learned with local native speakers. Within the span of 2 months, I’ve learned enough Nepali to get by in the city on a daily basis. I would highly recommend any language enthusiasts, researchers, and students of culture to take the Nepali summer course at RYI. I’m sure you would not regret taking the course.
