All About Me: I am a Bengali from Bangladesh. My mother tongue is Bengali. I can speak English and Urdu. I studied some French And Spanish. I cannot speak French And Spanish because I did not get a chance to practice.
I studied in an English medium school. My father believed like a building children should have a good foundation. That school was the best in the city. According to my father, going to an English medium school did not mean we should forget our mother tongue. We were expected to speak our mother tongue the moment we arrived at home. He wasn’t interested in raising snobs.This is about the languages.
Because of my father’s job we lived in different cities. In those days we only saw the places where we lived, we did not see Bangladesh,my father was not posted there. Besides he worked for the Federal Government.
My father passed away when I was twelve. My Mom did not want to stay in the city we were living then. We moved to Bangladesh. I had to study privately, the local Convent school only had up to grade six, I was in grade eight then.
I did my high school exam privately. I completed undergraduate and masters degree from Dhaka University. I studied B.ed. in Lahore and completed the education degree from Punjab University. I received a diploma in”Teaching English as a Foreign Language” from university of London,UK.
I moved to Canada after I was married. At present my residence is in the capital of Newfoundland, Canada.
I named my blog “Sabethville” in memory of my father. It means a lot to me.
