In attending the Lee Garmes Cinema Institute, it is very important that you do not go past ANY words you do not fully understand. Get them defined using an appropriate dictionary.
If, while reading, you do not understand something, get bored or the materials seem confusing, there will probably be a WORD in there that you failed to understand. This WORD will be just prior to the place in the materials where you were doing well. Go back. Find the WORD. Get it defined and then re-read everything from the WORD forward.
If you have difficulty with studying, feel free to email your Supervisor for help or additional materials. We can also recommend you to various out side study courses that may be helpful - but you must ask.
