I’ve studied with Naraa since I first began to learn Mongolian, and her training has helped me speak and understand Mongolian effectively throughout my doctoral and my post-doctoral research in Mongolia. Naraa is such a talented teacher- she is clear, precise and patient!
Naraa is an excellent teacher and always prepared for every little detail with unique and exciting lessons. She is warm and welcoming and never tires of explaining cultural differences and small language nuances - the latter was particular helpful for me as she tirelessly pronounced the similar words of "3" and "4" over and over until my brain was able to (finally!) follow along. Learning Mongolian with Naraa means not only learning a new language but learning everything there is about her home country.

As someone who has been wrapped up in literary Mongolian for many years, I have been delighted to have Naraa to help me with my pronunciation and colloquial language. She's always extremely patient and encouraging, able to listen attentively and to correct with great precision. I would wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone wishing to learn how to speak Mongolian at any level.
My name is Ziba Dearden. I have been a professional farrier since 1979. I began to work in Mongolia through the Vet Net organization. There I teach Veterinarians how to shoe horses and maintain proper hoof care After my first trip to Mongolia I began lessons with Ts. Narantsetseg. Even after a year my return trip was more rewarding as a result of the Mongolian language skills I had learned. I have even learned songs in Mongolian which pleased my hosts on susequent trips there.
I have been studying Mongolian with Naraa for many years. What I like best is that her sessions are focused on what I want and need to be able to say. I work with Dukha reindeer herders in Khovsgol and nomads in Omnogovi in health care and now I present their lives through documentary films and writing. It has made a huge difference in my communication with the nomadic herders. I highly recommend Naraa. She is the best language teacher!
Nara is an outstanding teacher. She is immensely patient and has the ability to clearly explain complicated grammatical concepts. She was extremely generous with her time and organized Mongolian cultural events outside of her teaching hours.
"Naraa bagsh is a very passionate and effective teacher. She tailors her curriculum to the student's level and ability, and ensures that the student reaches his/her goal in a timely manner. I've thoroughly enjoyed my classroom experience with Naraa bagsh."
Naraa is an experienced and dedicated teacher who pays close attention to her students' needs and effectively helps them attain proficiency in the Mongolian language. She has a track record of success in teaching U.S. government employees and private students the language skills they need to navigate everyday life in Mongolia and to accomplish their professional goals. I studied with Naraa for seven months prior to coming to Mongolia. I thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and felt fortunate to have Naraa's guidance when learning such a difficult language. I owe the progress I made to her hard work, preparation, and patience. I would not hesitate to recommend Naraa for anyone who is interested in learning Mongolian.
