Hi Monica

start with real basic stuff like printing hello world and making sentences
there are loads of good tutorials on youtube, just read the comments to see what people say about the video. You can also go to web sites. w3schools is a good one, check this out:https://www.w3schools.com/python/  You will need to install python and an IDE. The IDE lets you write and run python projects, pycharm is a good one and its free for beginners to use. then once you write someting post it here and people will help you.

good luck, and if you have any other questions post back here

Hi Monica,

Wayne's suggestions are good.  Some folks enjoy learning from videos.  Others prefer seeing text.  In addition to the w3schools.com that Wayne mentioned, the Python web site itself has help and tutorials for beginners.  For an overview to help you get started, https://www.python.org/about/gettingstarted/ is a good place to look.  To go directly to a tutorial, https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/ is the place to start.

May I also suggest that you start your learning with modern Python (Python 3)?  There are older versions of Python still available, but all of them will be "end-of-lifed" next year.  Although there are numerous videos, books, web sites, etc. that use Python 2, please keep looking for an equivalent in modern Python.
