    it was worth it

    Are sentences 1 and 2 correct:

    1-My Dad taught me how to play chess. It was worth it.


    Meaning: It was worth it for me to learn to play chess. Learning to play chess was worth going through the trouble.


    2-Life in the dormitory taught me how to get along with people. It was worth it.


    Meaning: It was worth it for me to learn how to get along with people. Learning how to get along with people was worth going through the trouble.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: it was worth it

    The sentences are correct. "It was worth it" implies that some degree of difficulty was involved.
