Will this actually help me learn python?
Yes code combat will help you learn python. It can also teach you a few other languages.
The short answer is yes. the long answer is It teaches you the very basics and does not elaborate to much as you are just coding a hero through a level. It will teach you variables, loops (which by the way are not even written correctly but whatever. In actual python you don’t put loop:) for-loops, while loops, arrays and other basics. If you are going to codecombat to get into professional coding then, no this is not the place. Codecombat is directed for ages 8 - 16? As an adult you will most likely already know all of this from basic logic and will just need basic guidance.
