Description:Dorjee Jebisow teaches how to read Hrusso Aka to Rinchin. Considering that mother tongue literacy is new in Hrusso Aka, this is a new genre, and likely to illustrate that it is possible to read Hrusso Aka even without formal education. During the lesson there is also spontaneous conversation and laughter. Linguistically, this video illustrates polite imperatives.
