Tibet has a saying: “Although it is good to know other languages, it is shameful to forget your own”.
I pledge to my father, to myself and to the people of Tibet that I will improve and learn my father tongue to the best of my ability. I want to be able to hold a full conversation in Tibetan without using English words in between and perhaps be able to even give a mini talk in Tibetan. WOW that’s ambitious for me maybe, but that’s what I will work hard towards for 6-10 months at Sarah College in Dharamsala, India.
The plan is to leave early next year, leaving me enough time to save and plan my schedule. I look forward to the day I leave UK and the day I can speak full Tibetan. I Choose Sarah, because I hear its one of the best, its strict and isolated, all the 3 great reasons for me not to come back home not speaking Tibetan.
Wish me luck people!
