They also stated that they wrote it the way they did so that if you were working with a native speaker, they could read the tape scripts.

And I was bound to come to the SAL forum eventually. I'm just glad it's for Tibetan! :D

You came earlier for the Tamil study group, though. :P

Yes, but I never actually participated. :P

And, no offence to anyone, but Tibetan is more my jam anyway. Plus we go back a lot further.

I'm a little disappointed that Fluent Tibetan doesn't teach any of the subscript letters. Seems like a pretty significant oversight to me, even if none of the vocabulary in the book uses it.

Here is my retry of drill 2 for Unit 1:

I'm not going to stress about still not getting the right letters for every sound. I'm just hoping I'll pick it up as I go along.

I think you will! I don't necessarily always get it yet, either. The contrast between the second and third columns is pretty hard to hear, although I think I kind of get the idea.

I've tried to write the letters in a larger font size this time like you do. :)

Why did you mark ཆ་ as wrong for #8 in Drill #6? ཆ་ is right and what the answer key and the recording say.

I was just working off the audio to correct myself, and must have misheard. :P

Ok, so for this week, how about doing Unit 1 drills 7-16? Is that too much?

[That is, if I can resist the urge to do some Vietnamese instead. Damn you History channel!]

I personally don't mind since this is all still the alphabet anyway, but that looks like a lot more than you've handled so far.

More importantly, what are you doing for German and Polish? EDIT: Never mind, I saw your posts there just now.

I think I can easily handle a drill or two a day.

Okay, so I did all of them! But I swear to God the guy in these recordings just pronounces every single nasal like nga. :P

I thought that same thing. It's very hard to tell the difference between ང་ and ཉ་ We'll have to see if it continues with the rest of the nasals. :lol:

Well, I guess he does pronounce མ་ differently. The woman distinguishes the nasals much more clearly in all cases, though. :P
