View Full Version : Can you help?

7th November 2008, 15:57
Hello, I was wondering if anybody here would be able to help me. I'm British and I live in Manchester. In the last year or so I've been to Nepal twice and spent around 5 months there, teaching and living in a monastery. I absolutely love the country and the people and am hoping to go back next year. However, despite the time I've spent there, I still haven't really managed to learn any Nepali! Before I return I'd really like to learn some basics of the language to help me communicate, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I have a 'Learn Nepali' set, but find it very confusing! Ideally I think a Nepali teacher would be best, but I don't know how to find one near North Manchester. Does anybody have any ideas? I'd be really grateful for any help.

Hi Jen,


I am not sure if this is going to be helpful or not. First of all, I would like to thank you for loving our country and willing to visit there once again. That certainly makes us feel proud and leaves us glimse of not being on foreignland.

I don't know if you have alredy gone through these youtube videos before or not.
Although, it's not mine, I have always been recommending them to my non-nepalese friends.
And most of them said they were helpful.

Here are the links:

Of course, this tutorial is not 100% accurate but still can be very good starting point if you are really interested.

Hope that helps...

Many thanks once again..

Best Regards,
