My job has taken me to just outside of Detroit, MI, where there is a sizeable community of Bengali speaking people, and our company works directly with them on a daily basis. Although we do have interpreters who help us communicate with them, I would personally rather be able to do it myself, and have decided to learn Bengali.

So my question for anyone who knows the language, and especially those who have had success learning it as a second language, is if you have any resources (online or off, free or not) that you would recommend for learning the language, both spoken and written. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
