This book contains eleven essays describing Lo sar (New Year) celebrations in eleven different villages in Mdo khams. Each essay is divided into two parts. Part one introduces the village. Part two describes Lo sar. All the essays were written by Tibetan students in English. Following every essay are: a list of non-English terms in the essay and their original script (Tibetan and Chinese); two blank pages (for writing vocabulary and a reflection); and exercises about the essay. There are also several appendices at the end of the book. These will be explained later. This book has three main purposes. Firstly, it is a general advanced English reader. Secondly, it will help the student develop academic English skills, particularly critical reading. Finally, it also helps Tibetan students develop their ability to talk about Tibetan cultural topics in English.
