LEARN BENGALI LANGUAGE AT LANGMA SCHOOL OF LANGUAGES

Langma International offers training in the Bengali language due to its popularity in various sectors such as arts, entertainment, and recreation. Bengali is an Indo-Aryan language boasting up to 300 million speakers mainly in Bangladesh and in the Indian state of West Bengal, Tripura, and Southern Assam. Bengali is the national and official language of Bangladesh, and one of the official languages in India. It is also spoken in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. As Bengali diasporas spread all over the world, Bengali language is beginning to be regarded as one of the emerging languages in professional and business arenas.

 

The Bengali alphabet (বাংলা লিপি – Bangla Lipi. meaning Bengali ‘script’) is derived from the Brahmi alphabet, which is closely related to Devanagari script, from which it started to diverge in the 11th Century AD.

 

It is interesting to note that Bengali has two literary styles: one is called Sadhubhasha (সাধুভাষা – “elegant language”) and the other one is called Chôlitôbhasha (চলিতভাষা “current language”). The former is the traditional literary style based on Middle Bengali of the 16th century while the latter is a 20th-century creation based on the speech of educated people in Kolkata, meaning Modern Bengali. There isn’t too much of a difference between the two style as it mainly involves forms of pronouns and verb conjugations.

The teaching style at Langma International is simple. Learning the Bengali language with us can be a fun experience as we will help you master in tongue-twisting and tongue-rolling, which is very important when you learn Bengali.
