All profits from these fees go towards running our free English classes for refugees and migrants – so the more you pay, the more people we can support and teach!


We are also running an ‘Elementary’ course in Bengali/Sylheti. This level is suitable for people with some basics of Bengali. Registrations are now closed. If you are interested in this level, drop us a line on and we’ll let you know about future classes.


Our teacher Ruksana says:

If you need to communicate with the Bengali or Sylheti community through your line of work, or just out of interest, join me at Praxis Community Projects (currently held on Zoom) for some Bengali lessons!

I am a native speaker Bengali/Sylheti teacher, and I can help if you are new to the language or if you are improving. I cover basic, everyday phrases that will be useful to you and build up vocabulary lesson by lesson.

Each lesson, I will share interesting information about the Bengali culture such as weddings, rice growing, drying mangoes on the roof!

Previous students say:
