I created this group with the dream that Search English will become the largest and best platform in Bangladesh for learning English. I feel that we are already half way there. The group has now 8200+ members and within this month, we are hoping to pass 10,000. The group is super active with many posts and comments. Most of the members feel that it is a great place- free of cost and free of bhejal.
At the same, I had the dream and goal to make sure that people can improve- really improve. You see the basic idea behind Facebook or YouTube is to create user generated content. In other words, Facebook does not create any content or YouTube does not create any video. We the users create the posts and add photos in Facebook and make videos and upload in YouTube. Facebook owners or YouTube owners do not care whether you can be benefited. They only care for activities and more content so that they can make money.
It is very easy for me to follow that idea and I have people like Abul Khayer bhai and Mohan bhai to do something similar or create a platform for user generated content and earn money without bothering whether the members can be benefited or not. I wanted to focus on only one thing- members can improve their English skills by overcoming fear and shame.
The basic idea is that you will practice here a lot and no one will be able to criticize you, laugh at you or make fun of you. That is why, we do not encourage even pointing mistakes. You just try to get skill of speaking 2-3 hours and writing 2000 words a day. You should be able to do that within just 2-3 months if you spend a lot of time. Then, you start reading grammar yourself. By that time, your understanding or comprehension of English language should reach to a good level.
You have already seen the success of Partho Pratim Mazumder. He became successful only because he really tried and worked hard. He has got a career now despite the fact that he is just HSC pass. He even failed in university and a dropped out.
There is no short cut, there is no marketing. We do not want to sell anything here- no course, no book. All we care is that you can overcome your fear and shame and then you try to practice day and night. After that you try to become skilled in English grammar. After that, you try to use this skill in your education and career.
This is my dream and I am trying very hard for my dream. It is important to have a good environment and we have perhaps the best environment in Bangladesh. Here, we respect everyone and we especially respect girls.
In Bangladesh, we need to be skilled in English in our educational life. English skill is needed for our career and for freelancing too. There is no need to emphasize or explain the importance of English language in Bangladesh. We just need it and there can be no argument or debate over it.
If you believe that Search English is a good place to practice without any fear and shame then take it seriously. It is your life, your career and your education not mine. Search English is growing rapidly and with it the name of Razib Ahmed is reaching to more and more people. I have already achieved a lot of fame and respect because of my effort for e-Commerce Association of Bangladesh (e-CAB). Now, I am achieving even more fame and success for Search English. Next year by this time, at least a million people will know about Search English in Bangladesh. Many universities will invite me talk to their students and help them to overcome their weakness in English. Newspapers, online news websites, radio stations and TV channels will talk about Search English and me almost every day. This is bound to happen within the next 10-11 months or even earlier.
Again, my main dream is that all of you can become skilled and will be able this skill for your education and career. It can only happen if you are serious, dedicated and spend a lot of time here. Otherwise, I will become very successful but most of you will just watch it in TV, read it in newspapers and will have no benefit, no real improvement.
So, it is up to you as it is your life not mine.
