How to understand scracth language ?

When I try to program an animation(or any project for that matter) sometimes the program doesn't understand what I'm trying to tell it to get my desired effect, but when I read the blocks over to myself it makes sense to me but not the program, therefore ends up being some miscommunication and things end up getting messy. Is there any way for me to understand how the programming language works?

You could try out some of the tutorials on the right side of the editor.

Another way to understand it it to look inside other peoples projects and see ow they work! @griffpatch_tutor also has some tutorials on how to do stuff.

it's not a specific project, it is just in general, I'm trying to understand how the program makes sense out of things so i can make my own scripts and get exactly what I want

Well then, could you give an example of a script that the program misinterpreted so we can see what is happening?

Say if i want to move the scratch cat 10 frames

In scratches language that is
when flag clicked
Move 10 steps

So the question is how can I understand the language of scratches understanding so I can make more complex scripts like for example, making space physics for a platforming sprite (kinda like learning code )

If you want to learn how to make a platformer, there are great tutorials out there that you can search up that teaches you step by step.

The problem is that the two blocks aren't connected. Your script should actually be:
when green flag clicked
move (10) steps
To do more complex scripts, @-frostyiceprincess- is right. There are some great tutorials on Scratch for you to learn platforming.

It moves it 10 pixels in the direction the sprite is pointing.

I think the problem is your understanding of what the blocks do is a bit different to their actual use.

There might be problems with stuff like that.

I like making quality, challenging platformers! Please check them out! Don't like platformers? There's always art and other games!
