Is this normal?

Hey forum,

This is probably a weird question but, currently i've been trying to learn Java. And i can't sink it all in. It's starting to become kinda frustrating but i guess its normal. It's alot of information (code).

Am i doing something wrong? Is it normal to struggle in the beginning?

Thank you!!

Normal to struggle, especially when learning a brand new language. Just keep practicing, reading, and watching the videos. It just takes repetition.
