Hi,


Background:
Initially, someone found explaining complex idea in a presentation was difficult, so they were not interested in doing the presentation.

After I helped them, they started to find explaining complex idea was easy.


Idea I want to convey:
I inspired them to do the presentation


Can I say:
Afterwards, they found explaining conplex idea were not difficult, so they became inspired to do the presentation.
?


My opinion:
I think it is fine.
Because "become + a feeling" is acceptable.
Eg, become interested in, become very happy


Thanks

    It should be,
    "Afterward, they found that explaining the complex idea was not difficult, so they became inspired to do the presentation."

    I was not sure whether it was sensible to say "became inspired" before.
