I would suggest NOT working with WordPress if you wanted to learn PHP.
WordPress is a bad choice for this goal.
OctoberCMS and others are a much better choice in terms of templating, PHP and overall code quality. They also have a community, themes, plugins etc.
Good luck anyway!
Thank you for the info. I also purchased a separate PHP course on Udemy by Edwin Diaz that teaches how to code your own CMS. I like WordPress but I’m also interested in learning other cms and PHP frameworks.
That's wise. In case you want to stick with WordPress I do recommend to read this blog carlalexander.ca/ and follow him everywhere.
This page carlalexander.ca/library/ is a gold mine for starters.
