Thinking of taking up a course in Bengali? 

Bengali is the official language of Bangladesh. It is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, with 200 million native speakers estimated worldwide. It is classed as an Eastern Indo-Ayran language of the Indo-European family of languages. 

Bengali is an Indo-Aryan language and the lingua franca of the Bengal region of the Indian subcontinent. Students will learn to interact with more confidence when visiting a Bengali-speaking region or dealing with Bengali speakers. These courses will allow students to demonstrate goodwill and facilitate international communication at both a personal and organisational level.

What will you learn? 

Bengali courses may vary depending on what level or institution you choose. However, there are a number of units that will be covered in most. 

Spoken fluency, listening skills, pronunciation and accent and reading skills are integral parts to Bengali courses. As well as that, students will learn telephone skills in Bengali, email and writing skills, sector-specific terminology and presentation and negotiation skills. 

Many speakers are familiar or fluent in both the standardised form used in the media as well as localised variants. Written Bengali uses a type of script called alphasyllabary or an abugida that uses signs to denote consonants. There are 12 vowels and 52 consonant characters. 

Group settings are a popular method of teaching, with other students opting for a one on one basis. This means that you can learn in an environment that suits your needs. Group classes are a great idea for those looking to meet other likeminded people, and to practice conversational Bengali. Many people choose to take an individual course in Bengali first, before moving to a group class. This is a wonderful way to boost your skills and confidence. 

As well as that, the delivery of courses depends. There is the option of taking a class online, or in person. Online classes allow you to study at a time and place that suits you. Courses also vary in terms of duration, leaving plenty of options to suit your pre-existing life commitments or work schedule. 

What comes next? 

These courses are suitable for a number of people. Government and non-government agency representatives who work in Bengali-speaking regions and who need to be able to communicate well at all levels would benefit from taking a course. As well as that, business professionals operating regularly with Bengali speakers who would like to build rapport and strengthen relationships should attend the course.

Anyone planning to relocate to a region that speaks the language should consider taking a course in order to prepare and practice their skills before the move. 

After taking up a course in Bengali, students can go on to strengthen their skills and knowledge. Starting with a beginners course can lead to an intermediate course, which leads to more advanced levels afterwards. Students can also progress to a university level, combining the language with another subject that interests them such as business. 

The possibilities are endless when it comes to taking Bengali lessons.
