Also, I somewhat understand differences between turns but when to use which I dunno.
Don't sweat it, it'll all come. If there's one piece of advice above all else, one thing that beginners do wrong more than anything else, it's going back-seat -- putting your weight on your back leg. This one mistake is good for probably more than 90% of beginner problems. Make a point of checking your weight distribution OFTEN. Don't let yourself get into the bad habit.
