    "When I young" doesn't sound OK to me. Is it grammatically right? I thought it should be "When I was young" or "When I was a young person".

    Thanks in advance.

    ow I have another to correct and to improve my writing skills:

    When I young,[When I was young/When a child/When a boy/girl], I had planing [I wanted/I planned/I hoped] to become a doctor. So, I was studying hardly[So I studied hard].
    After secondary school, I entered the test for small evaluation.[evaluation as a medical student] But the degree was fall[I failed the test]. It is bad for me >> but there are many major.[I was sad/disappointed, but there are other subjects and I selected Computer science. I would say thank you, God for everything.

    Thank you

    You are right. It should be "When I was young". Thus, it should be:
    When I was young, I planned/hoped to become a doctor.

    correction -

    When I was young, I wanted to be a doctor, so I studied hard. I passed my secondary school exams but failed to achieve the required level. I felt bad about it but there were still some other career paths I could take and now I have chosen Computer Science. I thank God for what he has given me.
