Home & Office CLASSES

If you are busy at the office and don’t have time to travel to a school facility, or simply prefer to learn off-site, our teachers will come to you and provide the same level of service as if you were present in our school room.

REMOTE LESSONS

Remote lessons offer the opportunity for students to learn without leaving home. It is a highly convenient option for those unable to make it in to the school, and the instruction is just as comprehensive. Teachers are assigned to students based on their specific needs and interests. Course offerings are the same as in-person.

Having studied at several language schools in Ulaanbaatar, I can easily say “Nomiin ger” school was by far the best I experienced in my 2 years here. The lessons were fun and interactive, every lesson was different and it was not just copying from a textbook. My teacher was friendly and took a genuine interest in my life in Ulaanbaatar outside of the lessons, offering advice on wider Mongolian customs such as how to behave at Tsaagan Sar, one of Mongolia’s national holiday celebrations. I made significant progress in just 6 months at the school thanks to the fantastic teachers and personalized lesson plans. I would highly recommend “Nomiin ger” language school to anyone looking to start studying Mongolian.

외국어를 배운다는 것은 그 나라와 문화를 알면서 언어를 습득하는 의미인데 처음에 배울때에는 함께 하기에는 어려움이 있었다. 우선적으로 단어와 문장의 이해가 수반되지 않았기 때문이다. 그런데 이방에서 공부하면서 큰 도음이 된 것은 단어와 실생활 문장으로 함께 배우는 것이었다. 밖에서 몽골 사람을 만났을때 자연스럽게 생활 문장을 입밖으로 내놓고 나의 자신을 보면서 조금 놀랐지만 이 몽골 방에서 배웠기 때문에 가능한 일이고 생각했다.

I feel so blessed to have come across this school. I have been taking lessons online for months, and although I still have a lot to learn, Tsengelmaa has taught me so much about both her language and her culture. She is incredibly sweet, understanding, and patient. I have loved Mongolian history for years now, but never thought I'd get the opportunity to learn the language from the comfort of my home. I plan on continuing lessons for a long time to become more advanced and hopefully travel there one day!

I spent three months volunteering in Mongolia. Khishig took me on as an online student as I was in a more remote city and started lessons right away so I could communicate easier. Her teaching style and covered material was tailored to my needs.

Then my last two weeks of my time Mongolia have been in UB so I was able to take in person lessons with her as well. When I return to the USA I will continue to take lessons online. Of course, Thank you Khishig and Nomiin Ger you were a huge help and wonderful to work with!

The instructors at Nomiin Ger language school are fantastic! They understand the differences between English and Mongolian very well, thus are able to answer any language questions. I had a wonderful experiences with the classes I took, and I was able to learn quite a lot in just two short weeks. I am looking forward to continuing to learn Mongolian language with the Nomiin Ger school.

I was very lucky and found this school on line. i now take 2 skype lessons a week at a fraction of the price that you pay in Europe. I never thought i had it in me to learn another language . But i found it surprising how quickly i could pick up the basic rules of Mongolian. i was sent more than enough learning material by email at no extra cost. Every class feels tailor made for my requirements. and now after only two months i am stringing grammatically correct sentences together. I get a PDF bill every month and pay by PayPal.. so easy 🙂 I have the same teacher every week. She has many years of experience and in my opinion has a good feel for the job. баярлалаа

About Mongolian Language

“Is Mongolian a language?” The answer is a resounding ‘yes’.  Conversely, the often-asked questions, ‘Is Mongolian Chinese?’ or ‘Is the Mongolian language Russian?’ have a clear answer as well, ‘No’.

Mongolian, being the primary language of the ‘Mongolic’ language family, is one of the most unique languages spoken in the world and is considered by many to be part of the intriguing and controversial ‘Altaic’ language family, which takes its name from the legendary Altai Mountains.

Researchers estimate that around 10 million people speak Mongolian world wide, including 3.3 million people in Mongolia, 5 million people in Inner Mongolia, China, and many more in some parts of the Russian Federation. 

Mongolian is the official language of Mongolia and is generally divided into three main dialects. The primary dialect, Khalkh, is spoken in much of Mongolia, comprising more than 90% of spoken Mongolian. Dialects in the western portion of Mongolia include Oirat, which is still spoken now in Khovd, Uvs, and Bayan-Ulgii provinces, as well as certain regions of China, and Kalmykia in Russia. 

Furthermore, an eastern dialect group is closely related to Buryat Mongols in eastern Dornod and Khentii provinces, as well as parts of Russia and China bordering eastern Mongolia.

Additonally, other outlying and related languages include those of the former Mughul Empire in Afghanistan and certain other parts of Central Asia.  Others are Dagur in Inner Mongolia, Uighur in Gansu Province (China), Dongxiang, and Bao’an on the regional edge of the Gansu corridor.

The first period of spoken Mongolian dates back as far as the 5th century. Mongolians have also created and used several written scripts throughout history. The first and most famous of these is the Uigur derived Old Mongolian script (Mongol Bicheg), which is written vertically and was created in the 13th century during the time of Chinggis Khaan. Other writing scripts used by Mongolians throughout history include Durvuljin (Square) script, Tod script, the Latin alphabet, and finally the Cyrillic alphabet.

Inner Mongolians still use the Old Mongolian script, which can even be found on such modern establishments as McDonalds and Starbucks. However, in the modern Republic of Mongolia, the Mongolian Cyrillic alphabet is used. In 1941, Mongolian linguists developed a writing system adopting the Russian Cyrillic Alphabet, which included adding an additional two letters (Ө, Ү) to the original Russian Cyrillic.

In modern Mongolia today, people speak primarily Mongolian, with a small minority of Kazakh spoken by Kazakh Mongolian citizens in the mountainous western province of Bayan-Ulgii. Although older generations learned and used Russian due to Mongolia’s connection to the USSR, nowadays, younger generations are more geared towards learning English, and many strive and succeed in becoming global citizens, whilst still maintaining their ancient and revered tongue.
