They're probably going to teach you web development using Python instead of PHP. Python is a great language with a growing following.
If you still want to learn PHP, the best way is to get a real book (like the O'Reilly PHP/MySQL book) and work through it, trying out all the examples. You can also stay on the forums for a while and read about best practices and how to fix common problems.
There's a new user guide as well which will help you with getting started posting and solving common questions.

If you already know C or C++, PHP will not be a difficult language to learn. The concepts, syntax and standard library are all pretty similar.
