If you're looking to start lua here's a few things you need to know.

Look at the properties. When you compare lua is basically like speaking only you have to be more exact.

For example:

script.Parent --Finds the parent of the script.
script.Transparency --Finds how visible the block is.[Note: it has to be a number value or integer as compared to the properties value.]
script.CanCollide --Finds if you can walk through the block or not.

Operations

So let's say you need to figure out an if statement to compare. These are basics. You would say

if script.Parent.Transparency == x then --script.Parent.[Block in workspace] is equal to number
return true

I would say more but I would rather not type so here are some learning tips:

Ask for help when needed but don't always ask for help. Try to figure stuff out by yourself. Always practice so you can learn to script faster and more efficiently.

If you need more information always check the roblox dev wiki https://developer.roblox.com/en-us

if you still need more information please view these videos as they are beginner tutorials
