Hi there! I am Julika, Karma Chödrön is my Tibetan name. I am German and grew up in Italy. I lived for 4 years in Asia immersed in Tibetan communities in Kathmandu, Delhi and Dharamsala where I learned Tibetan language, history, poetry, grammar and philosophy in Tibetan with Tibetans. Since 2014 I am working as a Tibetan translator and interpreter in all Tibetan Buddhist traditions. I hold an MA in Tibetology and Buddhist Studies from Vienna university. I am also a mindfulness and yoga teacher.

Me as a Teacher
As a teacher you will find me to be precise and also fun (hopefully). I like to give my students homework so that your progress will be faster. Of course it is up to you how much you want to engage. Previously I have taught Tibetan as a tutor at Vienna University and in Buddhist Centers.
I teach classical and colloquial Tibetan.
Come insegnante mi troverete precisa e anche divertente (si spera). Mi piace dare ai miei studenti dei compiti a casa, in modo che i vostri progressi siano più rapidi. Naturalmente dipende da voi quanto volete impegnarvi. In precedenza ho insegnato il tibetano come tutor all'Università di Vienna e nei centri buddisti. Insegno tibetano classico e colloquiale.
My lessons & teaching style
I teach in a structured and clear way.
I provide you with the necessary materials unless you want to use a real physical book that you would need to purchase.
If you want to learn to read Tibetan, it will take you about 8 hours with me.
