Another cool website for beginners who want to learn Python
Found this today - http://www.checkio.org/ . From my experience i've noticed that learning in a gaming mode goes much better and faster. Besides it's a great motivator to continue studying and getting new perks for successfully finished tasks. I've already passed all lessons for ruby, python on Codeacademy , finished all tasks on http://codingbat.com and now going to finish this checkio game and win it :) you should try it for youself - python is awesome and fun to learn.
