Is this normal?

So, I learned python and C a few months ago. After that I started coding like a madman, just day after day training and pushing myself to the limit all the time to try and put to use everything that I learned. Was able to make some neat stuff with it, programmed a few bots, automated a lot of stuff that made me and some of my coworkers do things faster where I work. Then my a friend of mine asked me to look into a JavaScript program he made. I said to him that I didn't know JavaScript and wouldn't be of much help to him, then he says that I was the only one he knew who also knows how to code, so I said "meh, what the hell, show me", he opens the program's code and I was shocked, I could understand what was the purpose of the program (he didn't tell me before) and most of the lines in there (apart of some specific syntax) and because of that I was able to help him correct a few things and optimize his program.

So to the point of the post: is it normal that after you get used to coding, you start to read and understand the code naturally, even if it's not the language you code?
