These are some online resources for learning Newari. They are listed roughly in order from beginner to advanced. Some are free, many offer free trials or paid upgrades. I try to let you know what and how much you can learn for free and what else you can get if you decide to pay (and how much that extra will cost). I want to include as much depth and variety as possible with these links. If you know of a good website for learning Newari that you think I should add, then please leave a link in the comments at the bottom of this page. (That way others don’t have to wait for my next page update to visit your link!)
