Speaking Dzongkha in Bhutan

Hi everyone,

It is widely agreed that speaking Dzongkha is essential for a successful integration in Bhutan. Do you agree? Share your experience!

Do you speak Dzongkha? If so, where did you learn this language? Where can one attend a language course in Bhutan?

If not, how do you cope with daily activities? Is it easy to communicate in a different language with Bhutanese?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Hi, I believe that English is the second official language in Bhutan and it is taught in the schools, so you should be OK with just English, but if you want to learn Dzongkha, there is a website here with free lessons:
