As stated in title: is Yii easy to learn and use? It is about to learn it as fast as possible and implement it to use. How much time is needed to learn basics?

Depends on what do you know now. Yii certainly requires good programming skills, PHP, at least basics of object oriented programming. If you know all that, then you can start in a week. After a month or two you'll be doing things correctly. After about 3 months you should be comfortable. After about a year you may master the framework if you want that.

Past experience with any MVC framework may help a lot. Experience with either .net MVC or any Java framework proved to be really helpful as well.

I find Yii much easier to learn, compare to Laravel. Yii 2's documentation is more straightforward, and API is much easier to understand.

If you are good at PHP then it will be not so tough. And depends on how many active hours you are spending to learn Yii. Did you tried Symfony before?

As @samdark said, Yii is easy to learn and use but you need some previous knowledge. My advice is going step by step through the official documentation doing some test project. In a couple of months you will be able to do useful stuff. Best of luck for you!
