      1. Hi, I am sylheti i need to tell you that he is not speaking proper sylheti, it is extremely similar to Bengali language. Please change the words, this is making people think this is sylheti however this is wrong please find a proper sylheti person to do this for you. Contact “She Learns” from youtube

          Ami goto haftat film ta dekhsilam
          His sounds are meant to be
          k = kh sound
          j = z sound
          He is doing everything wrong you should change this it is brainwashing non sylheti speakers
