The formative principle of this site is that the methods, techniques, tools, & materials we use for the Tibetan language ought to be based on sound, scientific research. As other languages, and especially majority languages such as English, take long strides in improving & solidifying new education, translation, & research models, we owe it to the Tibetan language to apply that knowledge to our own field of study. 

This section of the site is dedicated to showing where (& how) we can begin...
