    It really depends on your goals and skill levels.

    What do you want to do with it? Are you going to release it? Is the source to be private or public? Is it to be server-side or client-side?

    There's 4 choices from my 15 seconds of thought on the question.

    1) C#
    2) Java
    3) Python
    4) PHP

    Of these each has advantages and dis-advantages.

    1) C#
    + Looks nice
    - Windows Only
    - Can be decompiled if not obfuscated well enough

    2) Java
    + Works on all OS
    - GUI can be a PITA
    - Can be decompiled
    - GUI feels slow on windows

    3) Python (I've not used)
    + Works on all OS
    - Can be decompiled (I hear)
    ? GUI.... ?
    + I've heard good things about it

    4) PHP
    + No type casting required
    + Works on any OS
    + Code can be easily ported into any PHP website
    + Does not need to be compiled
    - Has no GUI
    - Has no threading

    I'm not good at programming, but I am currently learning Java to be able to program for Android.

    There are some cool platforms out there that can help you learn programming:
    I use http://introcs.cs.princeton.edu/java/home/ for Java, and Eclipse as the compiler.
    Otherwise there is this interesting, tutorial-like interface that teaches Ruby: http://tryruby.org/levels/1/challenges/0

    Have fun!
