Firstly we have to learn the basics of python which include data types, keywords, loops, functions etc. For learning this you will need atleast 4-8 weeks. In this period of time you can learn basic of python very well.
After that you have to learn basic algorithms and data structures in python. For this you will need 6-10 weeks and you have to practice it regularly by applying it on different questions.
After that you have to learn about different libraries in python like Numpy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Sklearn, Seaborn, etc.
Programming is all about how much you can learn about a particular language. Python is considered as the easiest programming language. But you have to focus on it and learn with full concentration.
