    How long could it take to become good at finding the meanings of poems?

    It seems that many GCSE poems contain hidden messages and meanings, but it is not always easy to spot them.

    For a student to become good at it, would it approximately take 50 hours of studying poems, 100 or even more?

    Let's say it is foundation level.

    I don't think there's a specific number of hours you need to study them to become good at them. Some people will just pick it up faster than others, just practise as much as you can until you get good at them? Get help from your teacher too, any maybe invest in some revision guide/textbook for English Literature? You might find SparkNotes and MrBruff useful. Good luck.
