JavaScript and React

I have a basic understanding of JavaScript, but I am currently struggling to keep pace with my bootcamp class, as they have already covered React JS. Should I focus on improving my JavaScript skills first, or continue catching up with my class and learning React? How much JS is necessary to learn React ?

React is a JavaScript library, so you can’t do much with it unless you understand JavaScript.

I don’t think you need a ton of JS knowledge to start learning React.

A solid JS fundamental will make it easier to learn. On the other hand, you can actually learn JS when learning React as well.

There are plenty of people that know JS but still struggle a bit when first learning React. The mental model is the main pain point when first starting out.
