How you felt when you learned it
I would like to talk about English, a common, yet difficult language to master.
I remember how hard it was when I tried to first learn English. It is challenging to master a foreign language as you need to be very determined and diligent. Sometimes, you need to have a natural aptitude for learning languages in order to effortlessly achieve a high level of skill. However, I don’t have a knack for learning languages, so it’s always an arduous task for me.
Just like other students in Vietnam, English is a compulsory subject in my school curriculum. I wasn’t as talented as my fellow peers so I was very shy, barely spoke anything in my English classes. Luckily, my English teacher at that time was very enthusiastic so he did everything he could to help me overcome my language anxiety. He created lots of activities in my English class, trying to get me to speak. Gradually, I felt more comfortable communicating with my friends in English and I have developed a passion for the language since then.
Thanks to him, I have found inspiration and motivation to maintain learning English every day. I feel the true happiness of learning, I find joy when I learn another meaning of a word or when I understand something I have read, or when I understand what other people are saying. At the moment, I still spend 2 hours practicing English every day.

What skills do students need to master?

Is it hard for students to learn skills?

In this case, yes, old people, who are probably absent-minded, are slow in adapting to changes so they must have a hard time learning new things. I bet most old people are struggling with the modern world, where everything can be done online.
