I am enjoying this site, proving to be most helpful, but am having trouble accessing it through my mobile device as I am getting the usual message when a website cannot be found. I believe it may be a server problem. Any suggestions appreciated.

Supriyo Sen ( on Dec-30 2015
I adapted some pages under Mobile Apps to be used on such devices. In order to maximize performance I had to put these apps under a separate directory. The mobile pages are grouped under "Mobile Apps" in the Menu.

I use this site all the time to write in Bangla and love it. The only problem I face at times is, the Document Area is not large enough and sometimes some spelling options are not available to help me spell certain words correctly in bangla. For example, 'Hothath" does not provide the option of spelling it with the letter 'Khondotto' .

Great site! As a future resident of Dhaka, I need to learn as much Bangla as possible. The content of your lessons is well laid out and easy to understand. It is a great supplement to my four hours of daily instruction (which is seriously hurting my brain)! Now that I have found your site, I plan on using it to aid in my learning and perhaps clarify things I learn in class. Keep the updates coming and Keep up the good work! It is much appreciated!

tomar nam ki?

mybangladiary ( on Mar-30 2014
Just a quick query if I'm using the have to construction and I want to say "I have to finish my cooking" i.e. right now, - could I say '(amake) amar ranna sesh korte hochchhe.' in the present continuous tense?

Supriyo Sen ( on Apr-03 2014
Your "have to finish" puts the sentence in the future tense. The verb is really "sesh kora" or finish. The subject is ranna, object is me, and verb is finish. The reconstructed English (SVO) would be "I /must finish/ cooking" and the nearest Bangla(SOV) would be "amake / ranna / sesh korote hobe". What you want as subject and object depends on the stress you want to place. If you want to put the stress on the ranna (ie you have to finish many things and ranna is the first in that list) make ranna the subject. The sentence will be "ranna amake sesh korote hobe". If you want to stress the I (ie many people have to finish cooking especially me, then say "amake ranna sesh korote hobe". Also adding an adverb "quickly" ( taRataRi ) will stress the urgency (for which you were going to use present-continuous). Ideally the adverb should be near the verb to make sure it is associated correctly. So the sentence would be amake ranna taRataRi sheSh korote hobe. Note that if you wanted to use the verb "hoOya" ie the process (of cooking), you will be using the passive case. The subject will become "amar ranna" and verb will be hochhe or hobe. So "my cooking is going well" would be "amar ranna bhalo hochhe". I would recommend you stick to the active case in most sentences.

Park Sung won ( on Mar-28 2014
Thank you Mr. Supriyo Sen. You help me learn Bangla very much. And conjugation part is great. For me conjugation is the most difficult part.

Rajamani R ( on Mar-19 2014
hi I ve been using this site for the past two weeks. Could you please make a list of all question words and an example sentence for each word like what when how much how many etc. Thanks a lot.

Supriyo Sen ( on Mar-22 2014
Hi Rajamani, Memorizing words and phrases may appear to be a quick way to display proficiency in a language. I will try to answer your question, but I must point out that if you truly want to understand and speak Bangla, you have to go through some intensive study. The grammatical structure of Bangla is different from English. Parts of speech like Nouns, Pronouns etc have equivalents in Bangla, but implementation of some constructs is quite different. For example, the common word "the" (as in "the dog") does not have a word equivalent in Bangla. It is implemented as a suffix -ta to the noun it points to. Verbs in Bangla have 24 conjugated forms, since verbs are modified in a sentence based on Tense (Past, Present, Future) as well as Person (First, Second and Third). I would strongly suggest that you go through curriculum. I have one at Guided Course for Conversational Bangla and all the learning materials are on the site. Here are some "question words" for you. 1) What-What is your name? tOmar nam ki? 2) When-When will you eat? tumi kokhon khabe? 3) How much-How much does this book cost? ei boiTar dam koto? 4) How many-How many dogs do you have? tOmar koTa kukur ache? 5) How-How did you learn Bangla so quickly? tumi kemon kore eto taRataRi bangla shikhole? 6) Why-Why did you come to my house yesterday? tumi keno kal amar baRite esechhile? After going through the course, you should be able to generate sentences of your own. You will learn about the Sentence Construction wizard that will assist you in developing grammatically correct sentences by yourself. Best wishes for your continued progress in learning Bangla, and I hope my site will help you learn and retain knowledge. Supriyo

Siddhartha Guha ( on Feb-11 2014
Supriyo , you have done a great job to start with. Now , this requires a thorough revision through a cross discussion amongst the users of this site either by submissions here or by staging a workshop. Bengali , as it is written , has it's shortcomings as far as phonetics vis-a-vis the established writing method is concerned. The writing method can truly represent the phoneticism followed only in Kolkata and Nadia district of undivided Bengal. But , we have nothing less than a dozen of distinctly different dialects which cannot be truly represented by the established print method . Additions and alterations are necessary to fill up the gaps to make this site rich enough for all Bengalees to express themselves in their own dialect . The endeavour, if at all taken up, will tremendously enrich this language .

The passive voice phrases are really helpful - these are some of the things we need to say!

ami shora shori bangla okhkhory likhtay sai

Supriyo Sen ( on Jan-12 2014
Hi Tajul On this site, you can write Bangla using English Phonetics and a standard English Keyboard. There are two ways for you to start writing Bangla 1) Use Phonetic Bangla Writing. Click on "Phonetic Transliteration Help" to understand how this works. For example, if you enter "ami sorasori bangla okShore likhote chai." on the yellow box, you will see the Bangla "আমি সরাসরি বাংলা অক্ষরে লিখতে চাই।" in the blue box. 2) Use Google Transliterate. This works in a similar way; you enter phonetic English, and this gets changed to Bangla when a word ends (i.e. you put in a blank). Either method will allow you to copy the created Bangla text and paste it into an email, for instance. Please try out both methods and then decide which one is better for you. Method 1) will also give you a Spelling Assistant and an internal access to the Samsad Dictionary. For any more questions, please email me at

Blaise Scavullo ( on Dec-18 2013
Dear Sir, I am slowly working my way through your Introduction to Conversational Bangla. In Chapter 6 the same Bengali word, mukh, is given for the English words face and mouth. Is this correct?

Supriyo Sen ( on Dec-19 2013
Hi Blaise Yes, in Conversational Bangla, we use mukh for both face and mouth. The whole head is called matha. mukhe means on or in mukh. So you could say 1) tOmar mukhe hasi dekholam. to say "(I) saw a smile on your face". 2) tOmar mukhe miShTi debo. to say "(I) will put sweets in your mouth". Thanks for checking. Ask whatever occurs to you as you go through the Chapters. I hope you have already gone through The Bangla Alphabets. I am building video intros to each chapter so that you can also hear the sounds. Please click on Guided Course to Conversational Bangla and look for the videos in the right column entitled "Video Clips for Course Material". If you are on Facebook, you may be interested in joining the Let's Learn Bengali Group which has been set up for people interested in Bangla. I hope your learning experience is positive and productive. Regards, Supriyo Sen

Kris ( on Dec-04 2013
I have been using your website for a few weeks now, and it is the most comprehensive site available. A truly wonderful resource! I am currently working on verb conjugations. It would be helpful for me (and perhaps others) to also present the verb conjugations by the conjugation pattern. This would be helpful since the verb stem also effects the conjugation. For example: Show the conjugation endings for "kora" in each tense/(I, you, he/she), -olam, -ochhilam, -echhilam, ect. Then list verbs below that are conjugated similarly. This way, the student can learn the "kora group" of conjugated verb endings and apply them - instead of memorizing each verb conjugation individually. Grouping verbs with more unusual verb endings, like ja- ( go) or hoOya (to be) would be particularly useful for me. In addition to your site, I have been using the book "Introduction to BENGALI, part I" by Dimock, Bhattacharji and Chatterjee. This has been especially useful for speech practice. The audio and book is available here: Many thanks and warm regards.

Supriyo Sen ( on Dec-06 2013
Hi Kris, I have added a post on Verb Conjugation patterns based on your suggestion. I have taken all the 124 verbs on my site and sorted them by conjugation pattern. I provide an example of each pattern. I am keen to get your feedback on this grouping. Is this going to be helpful to you? You can see this post at Verb Conjugation Patterns. I will eventually merge this into the "Introduction to Conversational Bangla", probably as an appendix". Thank you again for your suggestion. I look forward to your feedback.

Supriyo Sen ( on Dec-05 2013
Hi Kris, You have a very good point about the patterns of Verb Conjugation. I actually have developed the software using these patterns, but since I expect people to conjugate one verb at a time, I have not taken the extra step of making these patterns available. I will see what kind of matrix I can develop to show you how the patterns work. Give me a few days. Thanks for the link to Dimock et al at IU. I had not seen this before, I used to go to UofChicago site for Dimock. As people start going through the educational part of my site, I have been adding sound, usually through a "screencast" video. See the Lesson Plan for a course at A Guided Course for Conversational Bangla. On the right side of the Lesson Plan, I have put these videos. I hope to do more as we go through the chapters. I am guiding a student through the course and, as it turns out, am in the Verbs and Conjugations chapter. See if these videos are useful to you. I will get back to you with my attempt at making the conjugation patterns visible. Thanks for using the site and for your insightful suggestion.

Emma ( on Nov-07 2013
Thanks very much for providing this site to help learners like me! I'm so happy you finished and published everything just at the time when I needed to start learning! I have a few suggestions for improvement to the 'Pronounced as in' section on this Vowels page. I am from Britain, where none of the Compound Vowels or Dipthongs are pronounced as you've suggested, so I'd like to propose the following changes: 'ay' in 'play' instead of the 'e' in 'bed', which is a very different sound 'noise' instead of 'going' 'go' instead of 'o'+'u', which is confusing in English, since we could think about the o+u in the words 'out', 'source', and 'enough' and get very different sounds! I couldn't find a better word than 'moat', because North American English speakers pronounce words like 'more' and 'four' with a strong rhotic 'r', otherwise the 'o' sound produced by most British English speakers could have been well-represented by both of those words. I hope you will consider making the changes I've suggested, and meanwhile I look forward to continuing my Bengali studies with your assistance.

Supriyo Sen ( on Nov-10 2013
Hi Emma, Thank you for your suggestions. I have incorporated them on the Vowels page. It is difficult to find an exact match between English and Bangla pronunciations. The "pronounced as in" column is just a guide. The sound of each letter is vocalized in the sound files attached to each letter (apparently some Firefox users cannot play the sound, so please let me know if you don't see the sound files). Here are 3 links to kids' songs on YouTube that will be supplemental to Alphabet learning. They are at Vowels-Bengali Kids' Song Consonants-Bengali Kids' Song Vowels and Consonants Kids' Song In Alphabet Review-sohoj paTh, I have provided the sounds for the preface to Rabindranath Tagore's sohoj paTh. In Conversational Bangla, I am trying to put sounds/video for the Bangla Words. When you get to it, if you don't see any videos, let me know and I will add them in for you. Thank you for visiting my site. I am wishing you a satisfying learning experience. I have consolidated the 14-week-course lesson plans into a page Under Learn Bangla. You will now find it at A Guided Course for Conversational Bangla. Video screencasts in support of the teaching materials are also available from this page. Regards Supriyo

I have not yet done any active marketing of the site and most people are finding it through Google Search. I have put in a lot of capabilities that may be useful to many more people. I am depending on Word-of-Mouth from people who have reviewed the site, like you, to make this site useful to more people. Thank you for visiting and come back and discover more.

Supriyo Sen ( on Nov-02 2013
Hi Sudeshna, This website was designed to run on a server and to be accessible to any platform (Mac, Windows, Linux, iPad, iPhone). This design allows me to constantly update/enhance the content to provide the best service I can to you as an user. It also uses a lot of interactive functionality. The downside of my approach is that it is not possible to take this content and "download" it to your PC. What you need to do is to set up a bookmark for the pages of most interest, or for the home page on your PC, by going to the Bookmarks section of your web browser. You can keep coming back to the site and browse through the variety of content you will see here. On the Home page you will get to see all the capabilities on this site under the Tab "What is on this Site". I hope to see you coming back often. PDF files for the e-books "Learn the Bangla Alphabet" and "Learn Conversational Bangla" are available as downloads when you go to these pages. Everything else is dynamic and available when you visit the pages. Thank you for coming to my site and many happy returns.

Supriyo Sen ( on Oct-27 2013
Hi Alpana Yes, I can help you select the appropriate tools to write articles for Bangla periodicals. To make the advice specific to your needs, I would want to know 1) Do you use a PC with Windows or a Mac or Linux computer. Do you know what level of Windows or MacOSX you use (e.g. Windows 7, or Mac OSX 10.8) 2) Do you know what software you use on your system to go to the internet (e.g. Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera etc) 3) Can you install application software and fonts on your computer. Do you have access to someone who can help you with "computer problems?" 4) Do you use Microsoft Word for writing in English. If not, do you use any other Word Processing software like Open Office? 5) How many words would you think an average article would have? 6) Do the periodicals state their requirements for submitted articles. For example, they could ask for articles to be in Microsoft Word format with Unicode Fonts. Or they could ask for PDF files. 7) Do you have a strong internet connection? Do you know what kind of speed you have? Please send me an email at and I will try to give you some advice on choosing your tools. Meanwhile, you can write Bangla pretty easily using Phonetic English by clicking on Phonetic Bangla Writing. It is meant to be used by people on PC. Mac, Linux, tablet or smartphone, using any current internet browser like Internet Explorer or Safari. You do not have to download any software to your PC. Your input is in Phonetic English (the phonetic scheme is always available at Quickhelp) and the output is in Unicode Bangla. The Bangla can be copy/pasted into a Word document and formatted normally. Or you can take the Bangla and copy/paste to an email message to send to others.

I recently put in "floating windows" on 2 of my e-book pages. I found that this code was being incorrectly rendered on Windows. I have fixed that. Please let me know which pages you are noticing compatibility problems and I will fix them. Thanks for letting me know.
