    I have some theoraticla knowledge on some of the programing languages. But in practical work I am big zero. One month before I started to learn that also. If we get logic of the program then it is very interesting else little difficult

    You must practice coding with theories. Try to make a program for each functions and syntax and see the outputs how it come up with. Sure, practice make you perfect. With writing programming codes just look at small programs that was already created by others.

    If you are seriously studying JavaScript (and don't forget that you really really need to know HTML and CSS first) and spending at least an hour or two per day on it, then if it really takes you a year to learn the language you should give up and forget programming.

    Truly, if it takes you more than two or three months of such study to feel that you at least understand the basic concepts (and, I would hope, many intermediate concepts) then programming is not the path for you.

    I say this in all sincerity and I say it as gently as I can. There are many people who will never really grasp programming. Just as there are many who will never really grasp (say) physics or biology or psychology. If programming remains a mystery to you, try a different field.

    One thing I will say: While you are learning programming, ALSO learn debugging. At least 30% of a programmer's life--and in some cases as much as 70%--will be spent testing and debugging, both your own code and other people's code.

    Don't worry about whether or not you understand JavaScript in two or three months. After that time, ask yourself if you ENJOY it. Do you look forward to sitting down at your computer and working at it? If the answer is yes, you will eventually get it, and have a productive career.
