Does your post have the right title? It is "I Don't Know What I Need To Know" but I think your problem is better described as "I Don't Know What I Need To Ask".

And if your question is indeed "What do I need to ask?", the answer is very simple: ask what you want to know and cannot find out yourself. It is probably bad to look for questions to ask, since that would disallow you to concentrate on the real learning.

Asking questions is of course a good learning method, but in my opinion, only if you ask questions that arise spontaneously or while using the language. If you find yourself wanting to ask questions but unable to think of one, you should probably not ask at all, but instead read a book (and existing code).

The answer to the question "What do I need to know?" is even simpler: you need to know whatever is enough to accomplish what you wish (or need) to accomplish. If you don't know your goal, just read books, documentation and sources. If you do know what you want to do, I assume you also know the right questions to ask :)
