I learned how to knit english, and that's what I mostly do. I've read and watched video's on knitting continental, mentally I know how to do it, but my fingers haven't 'clicked' with it yet.

You could check Amy's videos if you're curious; if not, well, that's okay, too. All that matters is that you knit!
