Let's Learn Bengali
As a second generation Bangladeshi young person who has grown up in the East End of London and integrated, speaking Bengali became my second language. The only time I used my basic Sylheti Bangla was when I was speaking with my dad and other extended elders; but mainly spoke English with everyone else. Nowadays, English is the mother tongue for the 3rd and the future generations growing up in the Anglicize Bangladeshi community.
These let's learn Bengali books are produced with those key factors and also to adopt to "the way of the days" ways of learning and teaching. These books have multiple purposes and it is not intended for a single market target, these books are to facilitate learning for the young children/people as well as parents. Parents benefit from the passive learning while they teach it to their children.
These books are to facilitate relationship building and nurturing through teaching one's mother tongue language. Today's young parent take more responsibility in their children's education and life then our parents of the 70's did.
These books are adopted to the national curriculum design, with bold colours, with images and art work. Various methods are used to make it attractive for the children to take notice and pick the book up and open it. They are designed to make it easy to follow and navigate because they are written in English, and English transliterations for additional support, colours and pictures.
