আমি বাংলা জানি না৷
aami bangla jaani na.
I don't know Bengali.

Wow, Bengali is quite fun to learn. I wish there was a native speaker to teach it, but oh well. I'm still going to learn it anyways...in addition to the 3 other languages I'm learning. :? Yeah, so I actually tried to find the site you were talking about for teaching yourself, yet I didn't know which one it was. Could you tell me which one it is?

Also, I found this source to be quite helpful in my opinion:

Hey, do you know if there are significant differences between the Bengali spoken in Bangladesh and that in India?

As far as I know its just a slight accent difference. I think the calcutta version is standarized and used in movies and songs :)
