If I want to tell someone that "I became interested in programming". is it correct? But it doesn't seem to be correct?

My doubt: Became interested does't sound good. It should be something else.

Became--2nd form. Interested--2nd form.

Please clear my doubt?

  • What is the context? Is this for a resume or CV, or just casual conversation? Or are you asking whether the grammar of this sentence is OK?

  • There is no special context, just I was asking for the sake of grammar & wanted to know how can I say it more effectively.

The phrase is perfectly acceptable, just finish the sentence now:

"I became interested in programming" back in high school.

"I became interested in programming" the first time I saw a video game.

"I became interested in programming" when I saw a group of boys make the teletype do something interesting.
