What new trick would you like to learn?

We asked our readers: What is something you would like to learn how to do, and why? Here are our favourite answers

The competitive type

Something I really want to learn is to type faster and more accurately. Every time we work on computers at school, I can always see my friends typing faster than me. It makes me green with envy. I think it’s my competitive spirit that makes me want to improve my typing.

Qiana Kam, 13, Shatin Tsung Tsin Secondary School

Game master

The thing I want to learn most is how to create mobile games. A lot of people, including me, play games in our spare time, but not many know how to make them. If I could learn, I would design a game that everyone would like to play.
I would be so proud if I could do that.

If you could read minds, whose thoughts would you start with?

Like a local

I want to learn to speak different languages. My biggest wish is to be able to travel around the world before I become old. I want to be able to speak to the locals in the places I visit, so that I can learn more about their culture. I would start by learning Korean, French, and Japanese because I want to travel to Korea, Japan, and France first.

Henry Chow Ka-hang, 13, King Ling College

Ice queen

I wish my best friends would teach me how to ice-skate. I’ve always wanted to learn because the people I see ice-skating look very relaxed and they have such beautiful posture. I’d love to be
able to skate like them one day.

Karrie So, 12, Scientia Secondary School

Hook, line, and sinker

I would like to learn how to fish well. I’ve gone fishing before, and I felt very peaceful and relaxed, but I wasn’t able to catch any fish. Sadly, I don’t know anyone who can teach me how to fish, so it would be amazing if I could just wake up one day and be able to successfully catch fish.

Eye on the target

I really want to learn archery. There aren’t many places in Hong Kong where you can practise this sport, so it would be better if I could magically learn it instantly. People who are good at archery have excellent aim, a lot of strength, and a steady hand. I wish I could have all of those things.

Andre Wong, 12, Henrietta Secondary School

Become a K-pro

I want to learn Korean because I love listening to Korean songs, and it would be very useful to me as my family often travels to Korea. If I knew how to speak Korean, it would make travelling around the country more convenient and would also allow me to learn more about their culture. Not only that; I would also be able to make new friends there and chat with them.

Codi Tsang, 12, Po Leung Kuk No 1 W. H. Cheung College

Get in tune

I want to learn how to play the Chinese zither. It is a string musical instrument with more than 2,500 years of history. As a Chinese person, I want to learn this instrument so I can become more in touch with my Chinese roots and learn more about Chinese culture. I also love old classical music. It relaxes me.

Tse Pui-yi, 15, STFA Seaward Woo College

Get behind the wheel

If I had the opportunity, I’d love to learn how to drive a car. It’s my dream to travel all around the world. If I knew how to drive, I would be able to visit more places more easily. I hope that I can make my dream a reality one day.

Chan Yuk-yin, 12, Methodist College

Boba boss

I’d learn how to make bubble milk tea for sure, because it’s so expensive to buy and there’s always a long queue! If I knew how to make my own bubble milk tea, I could save so much time and money, and I could create new flavours for my friends.

Chan Man-kit, 13, Maryknoll Fathers’ School
