I've worked with all of those mentioned and each have their own advantages and disadvantages. For my personal projects, and the one which occupies most of my time, I'm using PHP almost exclusively.

I would recommend a spoken language opposed to a programming language as a starter, may I suggest English?

Anyway, PHP is my favorite, although I have (minimal) experience in asp.net 2.0 (C#), CGI, ASP, ColdFusion, Perl, Ruby and ROR.

No need to be rude.

PHP is good, but not particularly wonderful for high performance algorithms.
.NET is very nice but a pain to learn, especially the web features that deal with postbacks.
Java is used by larger companies; I've found few small ones care for it or about it.

Everything else is not as common, so I don't bother with them. For now.

Really, the bottom line is that -- if you can -- you should pick the language and environment that best fits the outcome you're trying to achieve. I can pretty much make any of the above do what I want, it's just that sometimes one is easier than another.

Completely off topic, Idiot. No-one cares which spoken language you would recommend, at least not in a programming topic.

I'd also like to add, on topic, that I personally feel that getting at least a basic understanding of a wide range of languages is more useful than going from newbie to 'expert' in a single language. That way you can experience for yourself the good, bad and average points of differing approaches to programming. Only then can you start to have a more balanced opinion on which languages you might 'like'.

I like PHP mostly because it was simple to learn and took the headache out of learning the harder languages for me. I have a head more for design than code, so the straightforwardness was a big plus for me. Now I can look at my actionscript or ror or other languages and understand the basic makeup with the information I learned from PHP.

Ive worked with code made by people who speak other languages, the comments and output are that language but the commands are the same. Although there is no official standard, here is what a Chinese keyboard looks like.

Wow, that looks as bad as an APL keyboard!

I think that most computer languages are in English because many were originally invented in English-speaking countries and then standardized using English keywords. So, yes, in Japan, C looks like like C here, but forget trying to understand the comments unless you speak the language.
