Well if you have, you will be interested to know that computers speak languages too. Surprised? Welcome to the wonderful world of computer programming. Computer programming simply put, is the set of laid out instructions that the computer follows. Now these instructions are written in what are known as languages.

There are quite a number of programming languages out there. All languages are, is just different manners of laying down instructions and text. When it comes to creating programs, different languages are used to create different computer programming depending on what needs to be done. For example the C, C++ and C# languages are used for creating computer programming and are known to be comparatively easy and often encouraged for beginners in the game whereas a language like PHP is more commonly used for web programming. That being said, learning computer programming languages is pretty much like learning any spoken language, you have to learn the basics, start as early as possible, find a tutor and practice, practice, practice. The internet is full of so many resources that will be of help on your way to learning the language of your choice. The first step is first of all selecting a language.
