A general question (?)

First, I apologize for possible writing errors, it is not my native language . Second, I do not know if this is the proper place for this kind of question but let it.

It is normal to be able to follow the classes and to make the challenges without much trouble , but then try to do it all again without looking at the examples and do not remember much ? I mean, it is normal in these first classes only become familiar with the syntax and structure and then dive into creating projects (even if simple ) . I have difficulty in how to organize each class , object , methods, different files and everything else . Anyway, I hope to give to understand my question and let's code !

By the way , I'm from Brazil ! ;)

Oi João!

Do not worry, this is a great place for the question, and your English is great!

It is very common to have lots of concerns and self doubt about learning to code, its challenging stuff. If you are passing the challenges, you are learning as I had intended you to. As far as not remembering, that comes with time, it just sort of clicks, just like English. Keep at it, keep focussed and remember to take breaks. Sometimes a break is all your brain needs to get itself sorted.

A great way to check your levels of knowledge is to go take a look through the beginning courses questions. Can you answer those? If so, it will help you feel much more secure in your learnings. Also, practice answering them, you'll learn a ton more!

Laying out a project is hard work, and comes with practice...luckily there's a bunch of courses and workshops that help you build projects from scratch, so you'll get the hang of it, and soon it will become your native language.

Hope that helped! Tchau!

The more that you subject your self to typing code as well as watching others do it the more you will remember it. Many people have the same trouble with remembering after seeing it just once or twice. Just keep at it and you will find yourself remembering little by little until you are able to fly through it without even thinking about it.
