Bhutan’s state language is ‘Dzongkha’ (meaning ‘language of Dzong’) and widely spoken throughout the country. Originally practised only in western Bhutan, Dzongkha introduced as national language in 1971. English also is widely spoken throughout the country and is the medium of instruction in schools while ‘Choekey’, classical Dzongkha, is used in traditional monastic schools.
