Discussion on: Should you learn more than one language at the same time?

For the most part, you should pick one language to learn the fundamentals of programming (ie: loops, if conditionals, objects, classes, etc). Once you understand those concepts, I would say it's fine to explore to your hearts content. The only real change is syntax between languages.

Personally, I would recommend JavaScript since you can do front and back-end development. Once you have those concepts in place, you can jump to something that might be interesting to you like Ruby on Rails, PHP, Python or a specific JS front-end like React, Vue or Angular.
