You need not learn both Java and Scala to start with spark. If need to be familiar with either of Java,Scala, Python or R to work with spark. You can start with this tutorial to understand the basics

Do you mean if we are familiar with Python,We can Work on Spark.In Real time Projects only Python is sufficient.

Do I need to learn Scala or Java for real time Projects?

You can work with pyspark if you know python. All the features will be available in pyspark as well. You need not learn scala or java
