I would start by asking: What do you want to program? Please specify a little bit more. Here are a few examples:

Windows applications: Visual C# .NET
Ubuntu applications: Quickly + Python
Cross-platform applications: QT (C++), Java
Web applications: Javascript, PHP, HTML5
Engineering / Numerical Methods: Fortran 95, MATLAB

In a general situation I would go with C++ or Python.
Note I'm not an expert in all of those, I only know a bit of C++, Visual Basic .NET, Fortran 95 and MATLAB.

Chung;

Grammer = Grammar

Punctation = Punctuation

Will be keeping it up.

I've heard it's kind of difficult to just start out as a freelance programmer. When people are looking for freelance programmers they tend to require experience that you've acquired by either freelancing for others or have been working as a programmer somewhere else and by then it's not about the languages you know since (unless it's something very language specific that requires you to be specialized at that language) language becomes trivial and you learn by programming in it.
