    Mine was C++.
    I tried using English, but my compiler had no idea what I was saying.

    Ah, but see, there's a technicality here. The post said first "language", not first "programming language".

    Yes, we all must start somewhere. Eventually, I'll get to English, but first I'll need the Microsoft Visual English++ compiler.

    Can't exactly remember, but before becoming a serious C/C++ programmer, it was one of the following

    QBasic/GWBasic
    Pascal
    LadyBug (a really silly way to learn to program)
    VB

    Must agree though HTML is really a language (but is was the first thing i actually learnt) the one's above followed in some k-otic order.

    What is LadyBug? I've never heard of that one.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
