Basic Commands and Instructions on LFTP

I'm very new on Linux, and I think I've gotten the hang of it, except the LFTP program. I can log onto the server I want, but I don't know where to go from there. I'd like a beginners knowledge of LFTP and its commands; I can't seem to find any good sources on the internet. I looked at the man ftp, but it is confusing.

ftp is navigated almost exactly like a linux disk

cd dir
to change to a directory

get filename /destinationfolder
to download something to /destinationfolder

to list directory contents

i believe send will also allow u to upload files, thats the basics
