    I would say Java. It is based on Object Oriented principles, which are a must to understand in this day and age, and it has plenty of pre-written objects to make programming easier.

    Just my opinion.

    I am not sure about this but i think high level programming is closer to english language and low level language is more different than english (like useing / . > < and stuff) i started off with Q Basic and thoguh it was pretty easy...i wonder what others started off with?

    This quession has been asked several times, search the forum.
    It depends on what would you like to write.
    Start with visual basic , then C++ then .... and end with assembly

    Welp, asking me will only get one response: VisualBasic. However, to become a good programmer in VisualBasic, it is suggested that you start with QBasic to help you out. It is very much like VisualBasic and can help you learn it easier. Also, work on Java Programming. That's JMO.. -- Jason Copeland

    Well, the best language to really get started programming would be pascal, its easy to learn, and free to develop with. Get turbopascal and start making some rudimentary games. Qbasic is another good choice, because it is simple and another language that will get you used to programming. Try out one of those 2, don't start learning things like java and visual until you're ready, they can be hard to understand if you don't get used to some common programming techniques and methods.
    And yes, please do a search in the future, this questions has been answered numerous times.

    I would suggest either Perl or Python, as these are fairly easy to get started with, very flexible, free, and not Windows-centric. I don't know VB but I'm told some would-be coders develop bad habits from learning it first.

    For ease of use I would choose VisualBasic, but to get better programming habits and get some more skills go with C++.
