I started in the same boat as you! I bought myself my first DSLR without a clue how to use it or what any of the buttons and settings did. But I knew what I wanted to capture with it. I've never been on a course or had any tutoring but now i produce landscapes that sell.
Like everybody else says, read the manual from cover to cover; believe it or not this is a great starting point to understanding the relationships between aperture and shutter speeds. Also just get out there and take photos! Photograph everything! Trial and error is the best way to learn, if the results aren't what you expected, find out why and work on that. The internet is a great resource for troubleshooting and advice.
There is a lot you can learn from the internet too, but have a go yourself at anything that interests you!
I wish you the best of luck
