Our journey starts with the story of our founder who was horrified to hear that Buryat – the language of her maternal grandparents – is classified by UNESCO as endangered.
In an effort to save the language, culture and heritage of her ancestors, she resolved to learn the language to preserve it. She quickly realised though that there was no feasible way of learning Buryat online or any possibility of interacting with a teacher. More importantly, she also understood that the world is full of languages which nobody can learn. She decided to do something about that.
Together, she and a team of mission driven individuals built Tribalingual, the world’s first online learning platform for teaching rare and endangered cultures and languages.
Our mission is to preserve world heritage by teaching rare and endangered languages.
We want to see a future where diversity triumphs over uniformity, where colour breaks the monotony and unique cultures continue to live and thrive.
