I think explaining is important

When you try to learn something new, I think it's important to explain the something with your word.
If you can explain the something with your word, that means you understand what it is.
I constantly update dev.to to learn new ideas that interested me. I knew nothing 1.5 years ago but I know a lot now about coding (not enough yet though). Even if you are beginner, I think you should explain some new ideas with your word to make the idea yours. And, if possible, share the explaning (dev.to is great for the purpose).
From my experience, explaining (with your word and honesty) is the fastest way to learn.
