You don't even need to "learn" a language to use it. Just learn one language extremely well and be familiar with the big paradigms and you'll be able to jump around to any language well enough.

There are sometimes minutiae about the language (especially in Python, with all of its extra features) that make it so that you need to dig a bit deeper to be able to effectively use it, but generally knowledge of one of the C-based languages will allow you to pick up any other C-based language in short order.

I'd agree with that. When I first picked up Python, I over-exerted myself quite a bit haha.

I'd go with English.

Java is by far the most popular to the general masses and will be for awhile.

Q. What's today's top language? A. Python... no, wait, Java... no, C • The Register

'Among developers, Python is the most popular programming language, followed by C, Java, C++, and JavaScript; among employers, Java is the most sought after, followed by C, Python, C++, and JavaScript. '

'The Tiobe Index for July 2017 ranks Java first and Python fourth, behind C and C++. '

'And its top results are more or less consistent with other programming language surveys. '

'The PYPL Popularity of Programming Language Index, for example, ranks Java first and Python second, with the former losing share and the latter gaining it. '

'The Redmonk June 2017 ranking lists JavaScript in the lead, followed by Java, and Python. '

This has been an automated message.

Learn one very good, and then go learn others systematically. Being specialists is usually not good for coders.
