There's a lot here.  First, I didn't separate them.  You have to do both
together, and both need to be learned.  Second, learning how to solve
problems is a universal skill that is needed no matter what languages
you use.  You may come up with different solutions in different
languages, but problem solving skills will be needed no matter what.
Third, I don't think the solutions will always be so significantly
different in different languages.  This partly depends on the level at
which one views algorithms, and will depend on what one considers to be
significantly different so it's a bit vague.
