Dictionaries sure abit hard to understand at first, since we are used with lists where the index to access a position is an integer.
The thing about dictionaries is: it's a "composition" of key-value pairs and due to that, to get the value of a certain part of your dictionary, all you'll need to do is:
print dictName[keyName] #Will bring back the position keyName
#at that key-value pair
The "key" is what we use to bring back the value on it. You can think of it like a key to a room, where the key of your dictionary is the door's key and the value is the room.
In order to enter that room, you'll need to use a key for it and that's how dictionaries work.
for dictionaryKey in dictionaryName:
print dictionaryKey #Will print the element at the left side of the double points :
print dictionaryName[dictionaryKey] #Will access that position and bring back
#the value at the right side of the double points :
Q: So I can't call the value without using the dictionary name with the brackets?
A: Not that I know.
Hope my explanation was clear, if not, let me know and I'll find another way to explain!
