Difference between Bengali and Bangla? What is Bengali and what is Bangla?

Difference between "Bengali" and "Bangla"
Today one of my students asked me a question : 
What is the difference between "Bengali" and "Bangla"?
My answer - the difference is same as the difference between "Spanish" and "EspaƱol" .One is English and the other one is in the native language.
Bengali is the English word and Bangla is the Bengali word. 
So we say "Bangla" for the English word "Bengali" and "Bangla bhasha" for the English Phrase "Bengali Language"So in short "Bangla" is Bengali for the English word "Bengali". Hope there is no confusion now. :)
