Asked why he was thinking so extensively about bringing English education to everyone's doorstep, he said, 'Even if students from different parts of the country read my books, they would not get a chance to attend my classes. 'To give them a chance to do my classes, I started recording the classes and uploading them on YouTube. When I got a lot of responses on the channel, I thought, how can this service be made bigger? From there, the idea of creating a website came to mind and the journey of Grammar World started.'
Asked best way from his eyes to enhance the level of English proficiency, Tahmid humbly replied, 'We are good at what we practice, and only practice can lead us to the level of unconscious competency in particular language learning.'
