Growing up, my uncle was always the cool relative who would come to visit with the latest gadgets and stories about the world outside our small country.
He was the kind of person who was always full of energy and had a passion for life that I admired.
So when he asked me to teach him “Internet” so he could watch “videos”, I was more than happy to help. I was excited to share my knowledge with him and show him how he could access the special “videos” with just a few clicks of a mouse.
My first lesson was a basic introduction to the Internet. I explained what it was and how it worked, comparing it to a vast library with more information than you could ever imagine. I also showed him how to use a web browser and how he could use search engines to find whatever he was looking for.
Once he had the basics down, I moved on to teaching him how to watch videos. I showed him how to access YouTube, which is a great resource for both entertainment and educational videos.
He got impatient and told me to get straight to the point and teach him how to access videos of women…
As he got more comfortable with the Internet, I showed him how to use social media to stay connected with friends and family. I taught him how to create a profile, how to make posts, and how to use the various features that make social media so popular.
About two weeks later, he told me he message several girls on Facebook but did not get any respond and asked me what is wrong. I was dumbfounded.
Along the way, I also showed my uncle how to use Whatsapp and how he could use it to stay in touch with loved ones around the world. I also taught him how to use other video calling services so he could have face-to-face conversations with people.
By the time my uncle had finished his Internet lessons, he was a pro. He was able to access the information he was looking for and was able to keep in touch with people from all around the world. He even started creating his own videos and posting them online.
He gave me a $200 ang bao for teaching him. hehe
