What are some vocabulary terms I should familiarize myself with before starting Python? I feel kinda lost at times.

I'm starting to understand some of the concepts they're teaching but I feel like I am not learning as efficiently as I could due to a vocabulary barrier. I have to pause the video often because I often don't understand what a certain word means. I feel like I could move at a faster pace if I just learned some of these terms. I found myself learning html with ease after learning some basic vocabulary for the subject.

Hey Christian,

The Python docs are a great place to reference, start off in the tutorial and this should cover most of the commonly used keywords/syntax. https://docs.python.org/3/
