we run into a lot of problems while learning new language, we get stuck or cant find the solution easily so if you are in college, learn the language that is most used by your fellow students, it will be easier to get help

if you are starting on your own, learn the language that has a big community e.g. Python, JavaScript, Java, C++ etc...

if you are looking for a job, learn the language that is popular/offers good salary among the compines in your area

I think JS is probably the most likely langague to meet that criteria but if you work in an area with lots of iOS agencies then Swift would be a better fit most likely
