What are the basic steps for a beginner to learn and practice Buddhism?

Faith is important in all religions but in Buddhism, the basic steps to start with, in sequence, are learning, contemplation, practice and affirmation. We should contemplate and understand well what has been learnt, then put it to use in our daily life and the result is affirmation, faith that takes root and can hardly be shaken. The process is then repeated again and again until enlightenment.
