Need to know learning python a good choice being a manual tester

Myelf i'm Krishnapradeep currently working in manual testing domain fully functional, my experience is close to 1.8 years. Planning to move to automation testing given the current market demands/business needs.My plan is to learn python,is that gong to work?

Can someone suggest me if i've chosen wrong path. Also it would be pretty much helpful if you can give me the scope of python in testing career (whether or not vastly used). When i discussed with people a few suggesting selenium. Just a sort of stuck myself, thought this is the place to avoid confusions

Please fell free to suggest, let me know other things if there are any that helps me.

Finally i stay in chennai- Could someone tell me the best institute yo learn python/selenium i've gone through the reviews, can't judge. Need to hear this from someone who has trained in particular academy/institute. Thanks

Will Python help in automating your tests? Can't say for sure because a lot would depend upon the framework that's being used to develop the product or service. Also, a lot would also depend upon the kind of testing your company expects you to do. If you're into functional testing as a front-end user, you might be good with Selenium.

In our projects, we use PHP for automating the tests. That's because the framework we're working on makes use of PHP and writing unit tests becomes super easy.

Python would help understand coding and it will work. I'd learn Python 'just like that'. It might be useful in picking up any new testing framework that you decide to work on.
