    It all depends on how fast you pick things up. I'm a slow learner but if it's interesting I spend lots of time on it to where I can become decent fairly quick. And once you learn one language, learning second languages are even quicker. My suggestion is to find a problem you want to solve, and solve it with programming. Any language you want, even if it's not a "real" programming language such as Excel macros, AutoHotkey, BASH, BATCH, just jump right in and try to see what you can do. Online tutorials are great starting points. You will eventually get to a point in your project where you get stuck. Research the error codes you run into, and figure out how to fix that specific error. Then work with what you know and move on until you get stuck again. Then research the error, and figure out what you did wrong and repeat repeat repeat. That's what I've done, anyway. There are lots of good free programming courses you can take as well. Python for Everybody is a great course, or of course you can take a programming class at Community Colleges and various schools.

    here are seven tips on how to learn programming faster.

    1. Learn by doing. Always play with the code while learning
    2. Grasp the fundamentals for long-term benefits
    3. Code by hand. It sharpens proficiency and you’ll need it to get a job
    4. Ask for help. You’ll need it
    5. Seek out more online resources. There’s a wealth of content
    6. Don’t just read the sample code. Tinker with it!
    7. Take breaks when debugging
    Conclusion: Keep Calm and Keep On Coding

    No. It will take you months or perhaps years to become even moderately competent in a single language. As it would with a spoken language such as French or German. Obviously a lot depends on how much time and effort you are prepared to put in.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
