It has good and bad points, 24 July 2010
I bought the book because i'm trying to pick the language up quickly. I'm 18 and interested in different languages. This book states you can learn bengali in a month but i found this very hard. The ordering is weird because it feels completely random however, being random words and not put into any organised manor, i found it easy to pick up a few common words. The vowels, constants and the alphabet are all given at the start however personally, this made it look more intimidating which made it harder. However, some people will probably appreciate this. The book was very cheap and for what i've found useful out of it - i'd say it was value for money.
I have learnt bengali best by working with people who talk the language and having to talk back in Bengali. I am still finding it very hard to learn the scripting though but i have now chosen to get personal help for this.
