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?

Re: Spark Learning Clarification

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
