Sorry, but learning C before C++ when you don't know either is *bad* advice, and highly recommended against by both the creator of C++ and the C++ FAQ (Parashift).
C++ is *not* a "better C" but is instead a whole different language with a completely different paradigm. Also, standard C++ has no notion of methods, maybe you were thinking of Java.
