Choosing a Password
Your password should ideally be more than 7 characters long as longer passwords are more secure. It is highly recommended that you choose an unique password for each site that you go to. Some people choose a phrase like "WhereTheMindIsWithoutFear" (a famous Tagore poem) so that they can easily remember their password. In the Welcome email, only the first and last two characters are shown for security reasons.

Each user needs to set up an unique identity on the system. Since we want to make sure that we can easily communicate with users, we have chosen an user's Email ID as the most practical and useful unique ID. The user's Name (separated as First Name and Last Name) is useful when communicating with them. Finally, we want to save the geographical location of a user to be sensitive to their time zone when communicating by phone or streaming video that may be useful for the learning process.
Please register by filling in the Registration form. Make sure that the email ID you enter is easily accessible to you. All system communications will be sent to this email. If an invalid email is entered, the registration will be immediately deleted.
The password should be more than 8 characters. Longer passwords are more secure. It is highly recommended that you choose an unique password for each site that you visit. Some people choose a phrase like "WhereTheMindIsWithoutFear" (a famous Tagore poem) so that they can easily remember their password. The password is not displayed on any online screen. In the Welcome email, only the first and last two characters are shown for security reasons. If you forget the password, you will have to register again, and all your usage history will be lost.
After successful registration, an email will be sent to you with
Subject: Welcome to supriyosen.net to acknowledge
successful registration, document your Profile and to provide a guide to the various capabilities of the site. Please save this email to remember your credentials. A database record is created on the supriyosen.net server to identify you for subsequent visits.
A registered user can use multiple devices and only needs to login from each device as necessary. For example, I use an iMac, an iPad, and an iPhone. For testing, I also have set up a Windows 10 and a Linux Ubuntu 14 under VirtualBox, an App that runs under Mac OS. Only one registration is required.
Since Registration sets up your profile, you should Register again if you want to change your Password, Name or Location. If you want to change your Email ID, you need to register as a new user. The history of your activities can be manually coordinated by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The registration record on the server will be removed after six months of inactivity or on your emailed request. Registered users will get an activity status report by email twice a month.
For your convenience, the system has been designed to remember your Login credentials on any computer, tablet or smartphone for 90 days from your last visit. If you are a frequent visitor, you can expect to be "auto logged-in" and go directly to the site,
Browser settings on some computers may restricts how long login credentials will be remembered. Public computers like the local Library or Internet Cafes usually reset every day. In these cases, the auto-login will not be effective and you will have to Login every time.
If you are not auto logged-in when you access the site, please Login using the login panel.

Learn to Read, Write and Enjoy Bangla/Bengali Online
Welcome to supriyosen.net
The Bangla site for the Internet
This website is intended to teach, and facilitate the use of, the বাংলাBangla(Bengali) language.
It is designed to use Computer technology and the Internet to teach Bangla to the level you want.
It is available 24/7, from anywhere in the world as long as you have an Internet connection or Wi-Fi.
You can use any modern Desktop, Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone* with Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS or Android. And remember, you never have to install and maintain ANY software on your system.
So, Welcome, Navigate, Learn and Prosper!
Supriyo Sen Note* - of course, a larger screen will be easier to read
Stages of Learning Bangla
The site now covers different phases of a journey in learning Bangla.
1 - Casual Interest
You could be a current or potential visitor to "Bengal" or a friend of a Bengali. You may not want to invest a lot of time and effort, but you want to pick up some conversational snippets to gain some confidence in speaking to real people.
This is important even for reading shop and street signs in Bengali speaking areas. To learn the Bangla script, the letters and words need to be presented with sound so that the learner can see and hear at the same time.
At this stage, people usually enrolled in classroom courses that were available at least in London and Chicago, conducted by teachers who were proficient in the language and were often textbook authors. Many of these courses for Bangla are being dropped. With the advent of internet learning, online courses are filling the void.
Considerable effort is spent creating Bangla text using the universal English ("Latin") keyboard. Most people learn a way (using a software key mapping) to type Bangla text. These Input Method Editors (IMEs) are different across computers, so your carefully learned Mac scheme will not be usable when you use the PC in the local Public Library. A method that works in all platforms is evolving.
If you went to live in Bangladesh or West Bengal, your knowledge of Bangla would surely grow through the process of immersion. But most people have lives to lead and have to find some other way.
I have tried to create a portal of Bangla links so that you can be in an immersive environment.
Thank you for visiting this site. If I can help you in any way on your quest to learn and use Bangla, send me a comment by clicking on the "Comment by Email" button in the footer. I want to make your Bangla experience a most positive one.
