javascript - probably a good choice. It was an introduction to thinking programatically without a lot of complicated syntax, and it was sort-of useful in that you could practice HTML & CSS & javascript all at once and build webpages with it. Also no compile times. :-D

I started learning using basic, I didn't consider it that good of a language to learn off of.

It was my second language which really got me into programming, and that was pascal, compiling with the old dos turbo pascal. I had a lot of fun with that language.

C is the first language i learned. Simple and straight-forward. But the world is moving toward OOP.

Perl, and then C++ (not C)
I dont think perl was a good choice, because i wanted to program games and not scripts.
and i dont include VB when i was very young, i didnt really understood it.

My first language was BASIC on an old Spectrum 128 I picked up at a car boot sale when I were a nipper. I remember using it to program the worst golf game ever made, because at the time I was obsessed with Mario golf on the game boy. Ah, the memories... but with that kind of machine you didn't really HAVE much of a choice, so I can't really call it a bad one even though, in todays world, it would be.

QBasic - Well, I think it was good experience for me, because I never programmed before then. So it was a good choice. Actually, there is not bad choice. You have to learn how to program, so any language is good for a beginner. Then you choose what suits you best.

To answer your question The Ice Master, it was the only thing I had to program with. :)
