Farhana Rashid
I believe I am suitable for this role because I am fluent in Shuddho Bangla and have been visiting Dhaka almost every year since I was born. I have a relatively good grasp of the Bangla alphabet and I can read and understand basic texts. I am very interested in Bangla culture and because of my background in archaeology, I have some knowledge of the regions cultural history as well as Bangla's linguistic history. Furthermore, I have some experience with teaching languages; I am currently a volunteer teaching English to adult learners.

Although I am not an expert in the field, I have an enthusiasm for the Bangla language and culture and am prepared to deliver classes to the best of my abilities. I strive to create a friendly, comfortable and inclusive environment for all learners and I would be very grateful to have this opportunity to teach others and also learn new things in the process. It would be wonderful to create a space where both Bangladeshi and non-Bangladeshi people can talk about Bangladesh's rich culture and language.
