Sisimpur through its television programs and various printed materials helps the child to recognize letters, to identify letters from words, to match words with letters, to form sentences with words. Finding materials from the surrounding environment helps them to recognize letters and words through them. Such as: house, banana, mango, table, clock, cow, tree, leaf, pen, book, etc. The various words familiar to the child start with which letter, it is taught in play tricks. Through the characters of Sisimpur, names of different shapes, names of colors etc. are taught from different elements of the environment.
Sisimpur has always taken the issue of correct pronunciation of Bengali language seriously. And so in Sisimpur’s Muppet, Manabcharitra, even in all kinds of television episodes, according to the character, the correct pronunciation of each is given special importance, so that the children get the opportunity to listen and practice standard Bangla through this program. At the same time, the language, traditions and way of life of different regions are also highlighted. So that the children are equally respectful of the people of different regional languages and cultures.
Currently, the 14th season of Sisimpur is being aired. The popular show is being aired on Duronto, Maasranga and BTV.
