Hey there!

I'm new to the forum as well, but I welcome you.

I strongly advise starting with Python and maybe even Java because that's a fantastic programming language to begin with. Actually, both of them are quite decent.

1. depends if you want to get into scripts or programming
2. depends on what you want to do with the language

for me, i started with c and i feel confident to recommend it to you as a beginner language despite its potential difficulties you may have with it, getting to understand how c works in memory and having your share of irritating segmentation faults.  the reason i say this is because with c, you'll have to learn the most core concepts of programming to be able to deal with it such as methods of abstraction and also the craftsmanship to create and understand how everything fits together whereas higher languages such as java would be for people who have completely built a solid foundation of this to construct practical and useful programs for the outside world.  c is powerful, used in a variety of situations, small, yet gets the job done quickly. it will meet almost all of your demands if you know your way around it and it won't let you down.

with scripting languages? i don't know, i've never stepped into the depths of scripts to recommend anything.

Yea, Java is a great language. You can make games, websites, apps, and software!

I think that C language is very helpful ! A lot of languages are based on C sintax (PHP java C++ ). So after that you can start studying an object oriented programming language such as Java or C++ :)

C because you can make almost anything with C, it's how other programming languages got invented

Every programming language will take your time and energy anyway.
I suggest you C#.
Because Visual Studio Community is FREE now,Tools are easy,you can build Web,Desctop,Android,IOS and much more.
So better invest time and specialize in one language than to know only the basics of many languages:)

yeah i am going to try to figure out this after my mid semester EXAM.

@Linguist Good argument. However, I'm sure if it's too hard to learn they won't get far anyway. And if they do, then what doesn't kill makes you stronger!

Visual basic and python are the best language to identify the basic rules of programming. 
In those languages syntax are easy than others.

I started with Java and switched to C++ (Still learning it though) once I got the basic stuff down. Worked great for me :)
