A- Well, acquiring a new talent requires commitment and work. Here, I’d like to discuss the difficult talent of driving, which I recently learned. Nowadays, learning to drive is actually a crucial ability to have, especially if you have travel plans. It was absolutely essential for me to learn to drive because I intend to move to Canada for my higher education. I was inspired to learn to drive by my parents as well. I first started looking for a driving school for this. Fortunately, one of my cousins provided me the name of the driving school where she received her instruction. I was enrolled at this institute thanks to my cousin’s interaction with them. On the first day, I must admit, I was somewhat anxious, but the instructor helped me relax. Since there was little traffic when I first started out, driving in an open area was not too tough for me. However, it was challenging to switch between the brake and the accelerator. The biggest obstacle I faced was when my instructor instructed me to drive on the freeway. I was completely making mistakes because I wasn’t able to manage so many things at once, including shifting gears, steering, controlling the brakes and accelerator, all while keeping an eye on both sides of the road in the rearview mirror. On that day, I made the decision to stop working there because I felt it was not for me. But my cousin inspired me by talking about his own life. After our conversation, I felt a little more at ease and decided to resume the courses. Traffic jams present another difficulty because learning to drive in big cities is a challenging undertaking. However, this time, my instructor gave me some guidelines and things to remember, which was very helpful to me. I must add that my lecturer was really knowledgeable and skilled in his field. So, after a month of classes, I made the decision to submit a driving licence application. I finally obtained my licence after passing the driving exam. I was quite pleased and thanked the institute as well as my cousin because I couldn’t have accomplished this without their support and direction. Overall, it was a unique experience for me because I initially found driving difficult but eventually grew to appreciate it.
