a: Learning math ~
b: building a brick wall

What: "This is because learning math is like building a wall: one brick builds upon the previous one, and if a certain brick is missing, causing a hole in the wall, the whole wall starts crumbling. So I teach math by starting at the beginning, and making sure that the bottom bricks are all there before I build on them."

a: Learning ballet ~
b: learning a language

What: "Learning ballet is like learning a language; a language that involves both your body and an outside source: the music. While you learn how to dance you will learn how to control every miniscule part of your body while also learning how to time your movements with the music. This mental workout stretches and strengthens the existing connections in the brain and it forces the participant to consider his or her environment in a different way."

b: learning to drive a stick shift

What: "Morano connected the reality of her writings to the overall mystery of life. This is the mystery every human being wants to figure out.

It's like falling in love with a car that isn't new or sporty but has a tilt steering wheel and a price you can afford."Or in other words the subjunctive mood is uncertain."
