For the last few years, we have been running English classes at Praxis Community Projects in Bethnal Green, where many of our students are migrants from Bangladesh. Two years ago, we decided it was about time we also helped the local English speakers to speak one of their neighbours’ languages, so we’ve started offering a beginners’ Bengali class at Praxis.

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 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:

“Ruksana is fantastic. A really responsive and supportive teacher.”
“Very enjoyable course!”
“Ruksana was a lovely teacher and went to a lot of effort to teach us about Sylheti language and culture.”
