Comment I would start with Visual Basic (Score 1) 312

I would start with Visual Basic. You could go with C#, but I think the language syntax conventions might make a bit more sense to a beginner using Basic's "BEGIN" and "END" rather than the symbolic characters of C# (and it's easy enough making the transition at a later time.) Microsoft provides a free edition to learn on, the integrated IDE with F1 help and Intellisense make learning the language syntax a lot easier. Also the ability to step forward/backward through code, revise it on the fly, and inspect the contents of variables makes it much easier to recognize what's going on in the program.
