Bangla class at Talkingbees


Many foreigners come to Kolkata each year and they want to know the rich culture of our country and want to know the people more by learning their native Bengali language. At Talkingbees we have taught many foreign students from USA, Europe, Switzerland, Australia etc. And today we had one student from Japan. He has come to Kolkata to visit Pandit Ravishankarji's birth place. He was also interested to attend a Bangla class at Talkingbees. So he booked a face to face Bangla class with a Native Bengali teacher at Talkingbees.

Today he took a four hours long lesson and he will be using what he has learned from this Bangla class during the rest of his Kolkata trip.And just after 2 hours of his Bengali face to face lesson, he has emailed me the following-
" Dear Teacher,
As an immediate effect of the Bengali lesson, I could understand that in the Metro the first language in the announcement was Bangla followed by Hindi and English. 

Many thanks for your well prepared Bengali lesson, it was not long while quite effective covering a tourist's needs. 
Best Regards,
Hide "
So grab the opportunity you have if you are travelling to Kolkata, meet the Talkingbees Bengali Teacher and take a Bangla course to experience the Bengali people and their culture more and more.For more information  contact Talkingbees.com

  • How is the Bengali (or Bangla) course?
The native Bengali tutor at Talkingbees structures a course fully based on your need and that you serve the purpose of your visit also. Your Bangla teacher will customize the lessons based on the places you are going to visit. And at the time of your Bengali face to face lesson you and your Bangla teacher will play the roles. For example you are a customer and your teacher is the shop keeper. Your Bangla teacher will tell you how to talk to them, how to bargain or how to say thank you after you are done. Not only that you will also know how to talk in the restaurants, hotels or how to speak Bengali to a taxi or rickshaw driver or anyone else.
  • How long is a Bangla class?
The lesson duration depends on your need. If you are going to have a short trip then you can take one day lesson for 4 hrs or daily 90 minutes classes. And if you are going to stay for longer time then we can have face to face weekly lessons for learning Bangla at my place in Kolkata.

My Bengali Student in New York,USA

I wrote about this student before.He has started learning Bengali when he was in the 6th standard.Now he is in 9th grade.When he has started learning Bengali he knew only a few words and now I an happy and proud to say that he can speak,read and write Bengali (Bangla) on his own. Isn't great!! And he also enjoys learning Bangla.


Bengali/Bangla Class in America
He is a very old student of mine.And during my New York visit I went to meet them in 2010.They were so nice to me and I enjoyed the couple of days I spent there.

This morning in the Bangla class,he was reading a Feluda story.Yes he can read Bengali.Though he reads really slow but important fact is he can read Bengali :) .At the time of reading the story,he said he will imagine a story and next day he will write that in Bengali.I am very much excited to see what will he write.I know he will end up with a very few Bengali sentences.But I always be happy to see his improvement day by day and his interest in learning Bengali never decreases.

Self Study vs Tutor | What do you prefer Language Students? | my Hindi & Bengali Learning Students ?

I am not so good at learning from books or in self study.I can't understand only by reading or can't concentrate much if I am trying to learn from a book.It's been always good for me when teachers explain a topic and then I go to study.
In my school days after school when I returned home and went to study,I found that I can already remember the whole chapter and if not the whole then at least the most of the chapter.Sometimes I got so surprised am I so intelligent? or why does it happen to me? ...... But whenever I missed some class,then I had to face the unwanted fact,I had to go through the chapter on my own .That was a real challenge for me.

Tutor  Vs  Self-Study ?
I found that I can remember better if I listen it from some one else.And before exam i used my talent many times,I asked my sisters or brothers or family to read out a chapter for me and can you imagine !! In my exam I could able to write those and I could remember those like a story.But that went well in schools but in college when I did my masters I had to consult many books and make notes on my own.But I never liked it.

So what do you prefer and what is your technique of learning ? do you like self-study or need a tutor?
I would also like to know from you including my Hindi & Bengali Learning Students.
