    I suggest you learn English before learning C
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    ill make a comment, on beginning level programs you should
    attempt, but im a beginner so thats all i know.

    what you should do is read up on some stuff, just one or two
    items, like say classes, functions, structs, for loops, while
    statments, if statments, and so one, dont overload yourself
    with a bunch and start with the easiest, probably, a
    if or while statment would be the simplest thing.

    one you have read up on a few of thse things, attempt to
    write a small program and work on it till you get it right,
    then do another program that is similar but different.

    dealing with files specially in binary, is prolly very important
    i would think, but i guess it depends on what kind of programmer
    you are. with that said, a program you might attempt, should
    contain one of these possible terms, fstream, ifstream, ofstream,
    or FILE*, the first 3 require the <fstream> header file, thats
    standard so you most likely have it, and FILE requires <iostream>
    header file. google those terms to find explinations on them.

    now ideas for programs that follow these guidlines lines,

    1 : Open a file and count the vowels and all other characters.
    1 : Write to a file, then read it back from the file.
    2 : (could be a 1 or 2, depending on the file) attempt to convert
    one type of plain text file to another. (Ex. i wanted a list of all
    my mp3's but i didnt yet know how to scan multiple directories
    and get a listing, so i used a winamp m3u playlist, and i wrote
    a program that removes all the junk, and numbers the song list).
    1 : Learn to get file names from directories.

    Now its important to understand loops, and how to use console
    so learn your for and while loops. read up on <iomainip> header
    file for manipulation of 'cout', then attempt these.

    1 : A Pattern printed to the screen such as
    *****
    ****
    ***
    **
    *
    And then reverse it.
    1 : learn how to color and modify the console text.
    1 : attempt to move a string across the screen,
    so that string mystring = "^^^^^^^"; moves
    from point a to point b with nothing but whitespace
    between both sides of the string.

    Those are the only items i have off the top of my head,
    there all pretty simple things, but if you havent tried any of the
    stuff it can cause you many difficulties later if you dont understand
    that stuff now.

    I think you've said enough already for this to apply
    http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-...html#writewell

    This is a global board, which means there are a huge number of people for whom English is not their native language. Writing like a 'boob' just makes it harder for everyone else.

    If you think we're bad, try writing your C code in such a sloppy manner and see how much the compiler complains.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    If you want to take my approch... Once you finish learning the basics of C, come up with a program to write of such unimaginable scope it will take years to finish. Also, make sure to write it using the Windows API, so you can be sure you'll be constanly bombarded with unfamiliar technobable, and programming concepts you can't begin to grasp. When it's done, you're a pro .

    By PRO, i mean advanced!

    Because it's not that easy to write a chess game with an AI.

    That's true. Actually writing an AI for any strategy game is pretty difficult. If you're up for a real challenge try writing a go AI .
