I’m working through learning Python, and am getting quite discouraged. I get to these challenges, in say Loops (the most recent section I made it to), and when I read what I am being asked to do… I just can’t put it together. When I click view solution, I can break down the code, figure out what it does and why it says what it says. I can also get passing score on the quizzes… but I can’t turn around and figure out how to actually write the code out from scratch. Does that make sense? It’s like I can hear and understand English but can’t speak it, which feels very very bizarre and discouraging. It feels like my brain just can’t process this stuff.
So, what should I do? I don’t want to give up. Should I power through all the Python lessons and start over? Start over right now? How can I get to the point where I can not just break down an alright written piece of code, but actually figure out how to do it myself?
