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 email@example.com.
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.

Hearing Bangla Pieces - with Bangla Lyrics and English Translations
Improve hearing and speaking Bangla
The best way to learn proper pronunciation of Bangla is to listen carefully to native speakers and emulate the way they speak. If you do not have access to such resources, you can listen to Bangla being spoken on the streets or on audio/video. Actors and singers tend to have very clear diction. Here is a collection of short pieces that you should listen to repeatedly and learn how the words are formed.
Read the lyrics (in Phonetic English) aloud and compare your rendering with the recording provided. When you become more familiar with the Bangla script, try to directly read the Bangla.
