Learn a Framework not a Language

I listened to a podcast that said you should learn a coding framework first not a language. Now this might seem weird and confusing to existing developers as we were brought up with the basic languages and then frameworks have become a trend, but that’s because we are old. New developers are coming into the industry and frameworks are the top dog thing to know and use. You can’t see a job without one these day, so is it better to learn the framework first or should you go back to basics first?
