Front-end Web Dev Track NEEDS adjusting!

So I've been plodding along through this track and I got onto the DOM course, little did I know the DOM course uses ES6 and I've learn't ES5. Yup, seeing that arrow function scared the life out of me and the further I went into it not much more was explained. I then found the basic JS course which has a course on getting started with ES6. This NEEDS to be in the Web-Dev track just before the DOM course, it's absolutely ridiculous to not even make us aware of new syntax and then use it.

I hope this is resolved as soon as possible. Alex.

If something like that happens again you can always ask us for help here in the forum.

Yea, I do find this rather frequently to be true. However, more often with the Practice & Workshops, which are understandably intended to be separate snippets that supplement the main track course. For me, it just throws off the entire experience. I don't know about everybody else, but as a student, you get into this fear mindset that the next topic may be too challenging or the instructor may use language you may not have heard of yet and this will ruin the rest of the course, so you can't follow along anymore. Like everything else starts compounding because of that one term or topic you haven't covered. It makes you want to give up quicker.
