Try to learn it like a story. History is the story of the old times of people before us. We come to know what they have done. Good or bad.
So if we read well then we should follow them & we read badly the try to leave that path. So in this way you will develop your interest because every subject we read there is some motive behind it. So history tell us that how old people progress.
And because of their hard work & research now we enjoy many inventions. So it will give us a thought that what we leave behind for our coming generation. I hope now you will like history.
