Mongolian Language Resources

Studying Mongolian is both a frustrating and rewarding experience. Frustrating because it is often difficult to access affordable, high quality materials to provide a foundation or supplement for one's efforts in learning the language. Rewarding because Mongolian society is so open and welcoming that anyone who makes an effort to learn the language will always find opportunities to use what they have learned. There are relatively few Mongolian speakers in the world, but those who speak the language are always very happy to invite a new member into the ranks.

These language resources are born from both the frustration and reward of learning Mongolian. They are intended to be easily accessible, free, and, hopefully, high quality resources that anyone can use to become a proficient speaker of the Mongolian Language.*

May your experience learning Mongolian be rewarding and, with these resources to draw upon, a bit less frustrating.
