Generally, I find that the easiest way of learning a new language, assuming you have at least some programming experience, is to follow these three easy steps:

1. Find a good website (like this one) with tutorials and examples and such.
2. Find a few relatively simple programs, and try to duplicate them.
3. If at all possible, try to find someone (a friend, relative, co-worker, etc.) who can walk you through your first few attempts.

These things seem to work pretty well for me; I hope they help.
