I understand the premise. I am saying I disagree with it.
A beginner will learn more about a film and about tonality and characteristics if he starts with two and contrasts one against another.
Agree to disagree. For someone new to wet photography the amount of knowledge needed is rather daunting. Things need to be kept as simple as possible to start. Starting with only one film does not limit one's ability to learn. Telling newbies that they can deal with more than one film does them a dis-service. There are posts every week of people getting into trouble. The KISS principle is needed here.
