I'm going to college in a month, what should I learn now?

Basically I've already know some basics of HTML,CSS and JavaScript(jQuery and DOM). Right now I'm finishing the Learn Java track soon. I feel like I have to take time to do some projects or exercises to make sure that I truly understand, but at the same time I don't want to waste my subscription (ending in a month). What should I learn next in TreeHouse? Do I learn Python next?

Python is recommended by me :laughing:

Lots of colleges including MIT and Stanford teach Python.

I highly recommend the AJAX / json course. Python is a fun language-- it was named after Monty Python, a comedy group from England. However, maybe PHP would be a better choice?

There are a lot of free resources for learning Python and PHP, so perhaps instead (or in additon), go to the library and list all content for JavaScript and do the short specialty courses. For example, these courses and workshops: ES2015, Understanding Promises, and Using the Geolocation API. Do the same for HTML and CSS. Have you learned Bootstrap?
