You've got the right idea. If you pick one and stick with it while you learn how to program, you'll never be at square one again. A lot of what you learn will translate wonderfully to another syntax.

I don't need to be taught the fundamentals, data structures, or even a lot of more complex topics, just how to think and talk in the new syntax and a little about the memory model and other underpinnings.
