Welcome to Tharingsa!

Are you excited to begin studying Dzongkha?

Whenever we study a language,
It can be difficult to understand
the different sounds that we hear.

So it's very important to have a strong
grasp of the alphabet so that everything
you hear will sound less foreign.

If you can master the pronunciations,
maybe some one will say this about
your Dzongkha speaking skills.

Before we begin, I need to

address the elephant in the room.


An unconventional approach

For the most part, our methods of approaching Dzongkha grammar will be by the book, however, we may potentially explore new methods that everyone may not agree with. One of which is called word separation.

Traditionally, Dzongkha and Tibetan are written with little to no spaces between words. Although intricate and artistic, this style of writing is hard readers to understand, and in many cases causes them to have to read the text out loud.
