Why I started learning Bengali Online?

I asked a student after he finishes his Bengali reading and writing course for 6 months that why did you started learning Bangla/Bengali at this moment. This is what he answered through an email.

Why I started learning Bengali?

"It was basically for two reasons:
1) Bengali being my mother tongue.
2) I also wanted to teach my off springs about this beautiful language.

How to write Bengali Albhabets?
As I was born and bought up in a South Indian city, though Bengali being my Mother Tongue, I never felt necessary to read and write Bengali. I learnt to speak Bengali from my parents who are Bengali. But I was always eager to read and write it. As I started working at an early age and I never got the time to really get into it. Its really shameful not to know my Mother tongue.
Now I had some spare time and thought utilizing in a appropriate manner. Hence my journey started with Talking Bees. I am really pleased with what I did learn in this short time. Thanks to Madam Susmita and her Talking Bees site who helped me in doing so...
Thank you  once again for the efforts put in by you... "

When I asked my new student that why do you want to learn Bengali, she answered that "Learning Bengali is my hobby". "Hobby" ??? . People have different kind of hobbies-singing,dancing,travelling etc. Why "Bengali"?.
My new student from Chicago has started her class last week.And the reason for her learning was a little bit different than what I am used to listen from my old Bangla students.As I am used to get the answers like - "my husband/wife is Bengali" , "I want to communicate to my spouse's family , "I am going to work in Bengali" etc like this. But "Learning Bengali is my hobby " - is some kind of different answer to me.

She started learning Bengali on her own since she got a Bengali teacher in her school.She really liked her teacher and wanted to great in her own Bengali language.And so that time she learned a few Bengali phrases to greet her.And then gradually she has build a great bond with her teacher and became interested in Bengali after listening to different Bengali stories and our culture.And since then it's her hobby-whenever she get chance she learn Bangla. And now she got a job and want to learn Bengali more .So she searched for "Online Bengali Tutor" in the search engine and find me. 

So this is her story.She asked to kept her name secret.So I didn't mention her name.I really became happy to hear these from her. I hope I will be able to help more people interested to "Learn Bengali Online".
