5 Essential Tips to Learn JavaScript Faster

Last time I’ve addressed one of the most common beginner questions. Specifically - How Long it Takes to Learn JavaScript.
Today, let’s get into the tips and suggestions you can use to reduce the difficulty of learning JavaScript.
Focus on basic concepts first
JavaScript may have hundreds of ways to build programs, but in reality, you need to know a few basic methods, like functions, variables, if/else statements. There are many things you can build knowing these methods alone.
Learn what you want to build
Instead of learning some advanced concepts like asyncpromisecallback - learn what you want to build and then google the methods needed to build it. That way, you will have a better chance of learning JavaScript since you’re applying the knowledge and not learning just for the sake of it.
Don’t rush learning JavaScript frameworks
Most frameworks like React, Vue, and Angular are built with JavaScript. Knowing the core of JavaScript means you’ll understand any frameworks since you have to remember the syntax and its underlying rules. Besides, the demands for JavaScript frameworks constantly change, but the language itself remains the same.
Build something
Many tutorials will teach you what and how to do things, but the only way to stick that knowledge into your head for a long time is to build projects no matter how small or simple it is. Building the project is perhaps the most effective way to improve JavaScript knowledge.
Take a break
It’s essential to take a break because learning for too long is not efficient. Taking breaks can help you absorb all the information you have been accumulating and give your brain a chance to process it. That’s how you learn all kinds of life skills and not just coding. I recommend taking a break after every hour of learning and on weekends to refresh yourself.
And last but not least…
Don’t give up
Above all, don’t give up! While JavaScript is indeed tough to learn, it is a skill anyone can learn regardless of their work and educational background. Because many companies are looking for new software engineers every year and this skill cannot come by easily, it’s why this job is paid well.
