Probably not a bad idea. I can't say for sure how much of Smalltalk will just confuse you, being myself new to Self.
It's worth pointing out that "upward extension" really isn't an adequate description, I don't think: Self actually *removes* concepts from Smalltalk. It's intended to be "smaller" than Smalltalk in terms of total cognitive load.
