Hi

Is it a correct usage of this phrase:

This course seems to be for me a kind of way out thanks to which I will try to clear my backlog from the past.

my backlog from the past
What is the context? Backlog generally refers to unfinished tasks rather than unresolved personal matters.
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
It refers to the fact that I didn't study hard in the past and now, by taking a special course, I want to clear "my backlog."
Newguest,

A backlog is generally referred to as an accumulated orders which is yet to be filled in a factory or any manufacturing facility. If you are not sure how to use it, Google is a good tool which can help. Your usage with backlog is a bit off track.

If a student is having a backlog of homework, or a backlog of studies, he is in deep trouble!

So, which similar term I could use in the context of my sentence?

How about: I want to deal with my past failures.
Or I want to clear the stockpile of my past failure.
Thanks Feebs.

This sentence indeed needs some work on construction and grammar as it is confusing for people to see what frame of mind you were in when you wrote the sentence. at the beginning, I just couldn't see the coherence of "course" and "backlog from the past" to each other. The problem words are highlighted in red. I didn't know what you were trying to say for sure.

<<>> This course seems to be for me a kind of way out thanks to which I will try to clear my backlog from the past.
If I guess correctly, you prabably meant this:
This course seems to be a great help which allows me to clear some of the confusions from the past. Does this sound about right?
