Hi Codeforces Community!

I am currently a high school student and an olympiad participant.

It may sounds silly , but I just wonder , what's the meaning of doing CP? One of my seniors once told me , many algorithms which are well-known for competitive-programmers turned out to be useless in reality.

I love CP , but is it really worthy to spend so much time doing it?

Thanks for advance.

Hi! Codeforces Community!

I want to ask a question , it is not related to Competitive Programming , but to ask how to learn English well.

I think most of the members of the community are not native English speakers , but many of them can express their ideas and share their opinions of the problems.

So , how to improve my English?

Hello Codeforces Community! I am Yifan Bao from China. I started to do cp about 2 years ago.

I think I solved many problems. Some of them are hard , such as div1 DEF , but I often read the tutorial when solving these hard problems. I also learned a lot of algorithms.

I find it hard for me to reach master or higher levels. Also I always cannot solve logic problems(I cannot express it well , maybe constructive algorithms?). Am I not talented? Are there any methods that can help me improve my skills quickly? Thanks in advance!

(sorry for my poor English
