This is more an observation than a question. I find that Pasan is speaking a little too quickly.

I am a native English speaker and would consider myself to be of a more advanced level of coding and just think that Pasan speaks a little too quickly during his videos. I'd feel sorry for anyone who isn't a native English speaker or have a sufficient coding knowledege as I think they would have a hard time understanding.

Kieran Eves,

Thanks for the feedback :) I'll make sure to slow it down in the future.

Interestingly, since I just went to through the whole Swift course over a couple of days, Pasan speeds up at the end of the course. The early part of the course is much slower. Also, the content speeds up at the end of the course as well. I must have rewatched one video at least 10x and paused it several times since it goes so quickly. And I am a dev!

This may not be ideal, but Treehouse videos do have a setting to slowdown / speed up the video play speed, give it a go, it may make it easier for you :)

that's why they have transcript, if the author speaks fast you can view the transcript.

Hi Kieran, one of the best ways to make your voice heard is through feedback links. Maybe mention what you thought about videos and how you think it affects learning, quizzes, challenges, etc.

I also feel that he should slow down a bit.

Please! Do slow down a bit, specially after coming from the other Swift courses.
