If you have $69 and can temporarily become a "student" to get that price, i highly recommend the Linux+ LabSim course from testout.com. ive been using Linux for 10 years and am still learning alot from it.
What do you mean by "learn to use Linux"? Do you want to just use it as a replacement for Windows as a desktop? As an admin to run some specific type of server? Security? The list goes on and on.
The good news is all you really need to learn about Linux is a computer where you can install Linux, and an internet connection. I generally find the best way to learn is to do, so just install and start trying to do what you want to do. If (when) you encounter a specific problem Google is your friend. You can also post back here.
Of course if a classroom environment is more your pace (and you can afford it) there are always courses available as well.
Keeping in sync with ComputerErik regarding "the best way to learn is to do":
You can always try using an easy distribution such as Ubuntu, however you are not likely to learn anything. If you want to learn via hands-on, try using Arch Linux or, if you're really brave and have an aptitude for it, try Gentoo.
