Not at all. As with any new thing, it takes a while to sink in. Having someone actually explaining it can sometimes make a huge difference in people's learning so trying to do it on your own could be frustrating and more difficult. However, if you keep at it, you can learn it.
As a wise man once said, "Nothing is done without passion," just keep yourself enthusiastic in learning programming. Maybe it looks daunting at first, but think about what you will know and what use you can make of that knowledge. SoloLearn can be your portal to the vast and exciting world of information technology.
