BASIC - or more specifically Visual BASIC (to do the simple stuff) if you are an absolute noob. If you know the difference between a while loop and a do-while loop (trust me there is one!) then you're probably ready to learn some Object Oriented Programming - recommend starting with Java and then learning pointers and moving over to C++ for some serious work.

Hope that helped!

Pascal is a good place to start IMO :) Leads fairly well into C programming too.

Probably Python (http://www.python.org/). It's very useful just to get to grips with how languages generally work, then you can move on to more advanced stuff, there are loads of tutorials around, there's a beginners guide on the official site and http://www.hetland.o...ant-hacking.php is very handy

Another vote for Pascal, or Delphi its current Win32 object orientated off shoot.

Again it does depend what you want to write, most sites / support on the net is geared toward C++ in one form or another. Pascal/Delphi seem to be dieing off.

I think Pascal is pretty easy.

Althought, in my current college year (1st) we followed HTML > Javascript > C and Assembly. (-_-)

Next year I will now start over in a new and undoubtedly better college, and the first programming language to be learned will be LISP {Scheme}.
