How long does it take to learn HTML and CSS?

It varies. This course is 30 lessons long, with just over 4 hours of material. Ideally, you should spend at least double that practising. That amounts to 12 hours of course work. We do not recommend cramming and 1-2 hours a day might be manageable depending on your schedule. So in about 2 weeks you will be pretty comfortable with beginner's HTML and will be able to move on to more advanced concepts.

What is the best way for a beginner to learn HTML and CSS?

Best way to learn is to build small projects. Before starting the project you need to learn some basic principles and rules of HTML and CSS. This course is exactly the place where you can learn them.

Is it worth learning HTML and CSS?

Yes, both HTML and CSS form the fundamentals of the modern web. Everything you see online in your browser is made of HTML and CSS and is your bread and butter of web development.

Is it hard to learn HTML and CSS?

HTML and CSS are relatively easy to learn. While it may seem daunting at first, you don't need to have any kind of programming experience and it's where most people start.
