Learning Bengali and Pronunciation ( Part I)

If you are thinking about learning a new language, then you can enter into the world of Bengali."Bengali is an eastern Indo-Aryan language. It is native to the region of eastern South Asia known as Bengal, which comprises present day Bangladesh, the Indian state of West Bengal, and parts of the Indian states of Tripura and Assam."

This is one of the popular languages of northern India in West Bengal, as well as the popular cosmopolitan of Kolkata ,where I live.Learning Bengali is one that can help you as an introduction to Eastern languages while allowing you to enjoy becoming fluent with the language from a different perspective.  

When you begin learning Bengali, you will want to be aware of the pronunciation differences in the alphabet.  This is the first step to learning Bengali.  This differs from English because of the phonetics that is used in the language.  In English, all 26 letters are defined by the writing with specific divisions in pronunciation.  However, learning Bengali will differ because of the pronunciations of the vowels and consonants.  Being aware of added in “h” after a consonant as well as the formation of a variety of vowels is the first step to understanding the language.
