I dont know anything about python and im kinda struggling rn
Lecturers goes way too fast
And the book he recommended only has explanations, but do you guys know any good beginner websites to answer questions?
Because i get activities to do sometimes, e.g write a program that reads 3 numbers and prints the largest one. I'm so clueless atm

Here's a few good Python links:

https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-python (You can ignore the "nagging" to upgrade to PRO - the lessons are all free)
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...72C720775B213E
https://www.py4e.com/
https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electric...hon-fall-2016/
http://greenteapress.com/wp/think-python-2e/
https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/index.html
https://pythonforbiologists.com/29-c...s-on-one-page/

Also, have a look at these A-Level videos, there's loads of introductory programming topics here which should be helpful to you for any programming language and the wider skill of using programming to solve problems - https://student.craigndave.org/aqa-alevel-videos

Remember that the core concepts behind programming are common to all programming languages, particularly the skill of Computational Thinking (analysing problems, breaking a problem down into smaller pieces, algorithmic thinking, programming constructs, etc.)

If you need to find specific answers to Python questions, you'll probably find nearly all beginner-level questions already answered on StackOverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/python

There's a couple of really nice beginnner-friendly programming communities here too:
