HTML is the type of computer language that takes years to actually understand it. There is no way that someone can learn it overnight. You can pick it up very easily, however this is the type of subject that you are always learning new things. I have been using HTML for over 8 years now and I am still learning the ins and outs of it. You might look at the code and say “well that looks easy, it’s in English”, but in reality you have to remember, it’s a different form of English and is written is words that really don’t make much sense.
As a new student, you ask me, “how will you teach me HTML?”
At first I am going to teach you the basic and during this time I am going to try to understand how you learn best. Are you a visual or auditory learner? The best way I find it to learn HTML and basically anything in Web Design and Development is just by sitting at a computer and start typing out the code. The more you write it the better off you will be in about a week.
Practice, practice and practice!
