Bengali Lesson 3: This lesson is going to have phareses and basic grammar. I tried to orginally do it in the Bengali script but I do not know the keyboard yet, so Im going to translitterate it.
In Bengali (বাংলা) it is extreamly imporant to indentfy the difference between things that are near and far. ( Just like in Pashto ) I dont think Hindi/Urdu has it to this extent.
seta-that (wherever else)
*In Bengali, when you make an s sound, most of the it goes along with a very light "sh" sound.
Here are Some Personal Pronouns in Bengali:
Ami- I Amra-We
*The rest as mentioned before requires to regconigize the differences between-here, there and wherever else*
Here are the rest:
*I know it seems very hard at first, but you will get used to it. just note all polites are plural and you really want to make a distinaction as not to offend anyone. Also to learn better try making flashcards. This is what helps me the most*
Now as Promised some Bengalibasic phrases:
Aapnar/Tomar naam ki?-Whats your name?
Aamar naam....-my name is...
Haan nischoy - Yes, of course.
kemon acchen?-How are you?
ami bhalo acchi -I'm fine.
bujhte pari ni - I don't understand.
Hope you enjoyed this lesson! More to come soon =)
