For programming languages stuff like C and Java are good places to learn. C is simple, but once you start getting in to the advanced stuff can be very powerful and provides a foundation for other languages such as Java, C++ etc as the syntax and functions are familiar throughout. You won't be making websites with C, or GUI applications.
VisualBasic or C# with .NET are good for GUI applications, as well as Java if you start learning the GUI stuff with that.
Then you've got the lower level languages like assembly language.
They're just a some languages to name a few. There's plenty of others and each one is better at a certain thing than another, but C or Java are probably the two best to start off with I personally find.

i'll only talk about simple stuff, as it's all i know.
strictly speaking, html and css are not programming languages, as you can't write programs with them - you can only markup, layout and prettify webpages with them (and you could argue that html is a subset of big daddy xml - but i digress...)
BUT they are easy to learn, and will get you into the basics of coding and syntax - and you can make web sites too!
back in the last millennium, before wysiwyg software came out, we actually had to learn html (even before css was invented), and had to write webpages all by ourselves in notepad - these days, programs like dreamweaver make it so much easier and quicker.
i was a teenager in the early eighties, back when affordable micro-computers were starting to come into homes and schools, so i was taught BASIC, which is a very simple language to learn, using simple english words like IF, THEN, GOTO etc. back then we used to buy magazines with pages and pages of long program listings that we would sit and type (and debug!) into our little computers for hours and hours and hours (picking up geeky/nerdy solitary antisocial habits along the way ).
that was a good way to learn BASIC, if you were paying attention. however nobody uses basic anymore afaik, as it could lead you into poor programming habits. instead it has evolved into visual basic, which is also pretty simple, and is another good place to start learning how to code proper programs that can run outside of a web browser.
