If you want to learn use of the command line, you want to learn how to

Google for "bash linux" and you'll get results like the following:

If there's a particular task you want to perform from the console
environment, also known as the cli, the options depend on what task
you're interested in learning. For example, if you want to use mail on
the cli, you might want to learn about mutt:

There are tweaks you need to make to mutt's configuration file, .muttrc

If you want to play audio, try mplayer.

Etc., etc.
